Subject: Re: A Hoyt's Relative
Thank you for making copies of what Aunt Mildred manuscript and what your wife Barbara had researched. I really appreciate it!
From my findings and from what you have, we had two Lucy Hodgkin's in the family. From the information that I have collected over the years. I have Lucy G. Hodgkin's, born November 7, 1814, in Vienna, Kennebec, ME. She was the mother to our Eli Hoyt, jr. She married Eli Hoyt, Sr., June 14, 1838, in Athens, Somerset Co., ME. Her Father was True B. Hodgkin's and her Mother was Joanna Davis. Joanna Davis was born January 30, 1779, in Davisville, Merrimack, New Hampshire, She died August 10, 1849, in Chester, Franklin, Maine. Joanna Davis parents were, Lemuel Davis and Hannah Currier. Guess that's where Uncle Amos Hodgkin's Currier Hoyt gets his name from.
I thought I would also include some information that you didn't have listed on Gencircles. This information was given to me from my Aunt Ruth Bogue Haynes, and from other research I have done.

Irving Milton Hoyt was born December 21, 1893. (I have a small vase that Uncle Irving made out of shell casing from World War I.) My Dad gave me back in 1983 in CT.
According to the 1880 Maine census and my Aunt Ruth B. Haynes. Sarah Elizabeth Berry Hoyt, born May 17, 1853, in Sugar Valley, PA. And in the 1880 Maine census, her parents are listed as born in MA. My Aunt Ruth Bogue Haynes also told me that Sarah E. Berry's family was Pennsylvania Dutch, also that they were of Jewish faith. That the family was known as Black Dutch. Meaning they only spoke German. Aunt Ruth gave me the names and birth dates. Aunt Dot had the notes and family Bible after Nana passed away. She kept up with the log of births and deaths along the way. Then Aunt Ruth started keeping them up after Aunt Dot passed away.
Well, again, Richard I appreciate your making the copies and sending them out to me. Look forward to corresponding with you in the future. My best to your bride.
