Hattie was the daughter of Sylvester H. & Marcia/Mercine [FARNSWORTH] BELL, the oldest of 5 children :Asahel b 1863, Flora b 1866, Homer b 1868,+ Arthur 1871. Each born "over the border in Canada at an aunt's". Her parents went through a bitter divorce in 1884 after her father "shot but did not kill" her mother.
She married Timothy Seymour Austin [b 1862] in 1888 having 2 sons: Arthur Seymour in 1894, Ernest Winslow Austin in 1896 in Fairfax. She got pneumonia and died at only 37 when her sons were only 4 + 2 yrs old. They were then raised by her sister Flora and brothers Homer and Arthur who had moved down to Randolph with their mother, Marcia Bell, who died 1 week before Hattie.
In Randolph the uncles and aunt had opened The Bell Brothers Store - largest department store in mid-Vermont which Arthur and Earnest worked in after WW1 service. The boys visited their father's farm summers in Farfax. Their father T.S. Austin remarried, had 4 more children, and later moved down to Randolph also.
Hoping to find relatives.
