I am trying to connect my 3x Great Grandfather Henry William Foote to his daughter, my 2x Great Grandmother, Carrie Belle Foote Rhines for my DAR membership. I have used the Foote Family, Comprising the Genealogy and History of Nathaniel Foote, of Wethersfield, Conn by Abram W. Foote as a starting point and worked out from there. This generation is the one that is being difficult.
Here are the people, places and dates.
Henry William Foote b. 20 May 1815 Parishville, St. Lawrence Co, NY d. 12 June 1999 Readmond, Emmett Co, MI m. 1) Almira Johnson Goodrich 12 May 1842 – Vermont m. 2) Rebecca Dunlap Miller abt 1858 LaSalle, Monroe Co, MI b. Abt 1821 Canada d. Feb 1870 LaSalle, Monroe Co, MI m. 3) Lenora Holley 12 June 1871 – Vermont
Children with Rebecca Dunlap Miller Stephen Miller Foote 1859 -1919 James S. Foote 1859-? Lillian Viola Foote 1861-1933 Arthur L. Foote 1863-? **Carrie Belle Foote 1866- 14 September 1930 Tacoma, Pierce Co, WA m. Joseph Ruben Rhines 8 Dec 1883, Emmet Co, MI
This is what I have checked into and the results so far. I am thinking the answer is going to be in Monroe County. Probably something that needs a hands on. Being in Washington State, I am finding that hands on part a little tough!
– Death Certificate for Carrie – no parents listed – Marriage Certificate for Carrie – no parents listed BUT, her half brother (from Henry’s 1st marriage) Walter W. Foote was a witness. – Obit for Carrie – no parents listed – funeral home/cemetery records – no parents listed – No Birth Certificate for Carrie. MI didn’t start keeping records until 1867. – 1870 census – found a 4 year old Carrie B Foote living with a Daniel and Harriet Fish in Midland, Midland Co, MI. Both listed as “deaf and dumb” on the census. -1880 census – Carrie is living with Joseph Rhines’ sister Rebecca Converse and her husband Fredrick in Dundas, Rice Co, MN. She is already going by Carrie Rhines. They didn’t marry until 3 years later. Henry is living in VT with his 3rd wife, no children listed. – have not found a will, land records or probate for Henry in MI or VT. -1890 census….. Well we know what happened to those records. – Waiting on a death record for Rebecca from LaSalle, Monroe Co, MI. – Waiting on MC for Henry and Rebecca from LaSalle, Monroe Co, MI.
