Harriett Maria (Wallace) Covell was born in Buffalo, New York, on June 21, 1859, the daughter of James Matthew and Ann Eliza (Lockwood) Wallace, the former born in Bloomfield, Canada, the latter born in Huddersfield, Yorkshire, England. Harriett used the name Hattie throughout her life. She died in Machias, Snohomish County, Washington, on January 2, 1913. She is buried in the GAR Cemetery in Snohomish. Harriett married first Franklin M. Covell about 1880 probably in Dunn County, Wisconsin. They had two sons. Franklin died at age 36 on March 20, 1883, in the Town(ship) of Stanley, Barron County, Wisconsin. Harriett married second her first husband's brother, Seth Warner Covell, on October 21, 1886, in Cameron, Barron County, Wisconsin. Seth and Harriett had four sons and a daughter, all born in Barron County, Wisconsin, where Seth farmed. They also raised Harriett's son from her first marriage. The other son from Harriett's first marriage died young. Harriett's birth year is 1859, not 1857 as shown on her grave marker. The June 21, 1859 date above is from the records of her grandson. The 1900 census of Stanley, Barron County, Wisconsin, family #52 shows her as born June 1859. That is consistent with the censuses of 1910 and 1920.
