Harriet Eugenia "Hattie" Dickson Formby
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: Aug. 6, 1848
Chambers County
Alabama, USA
Death: Aug. 6, 1895
Magnolia
Columbia County
Arkansas, USA

Married First in Dec. 1, 1870 to HUMPHREY POSEY REEVES
Source: LDS, Arkansas, Marriages, 1837-1944

They had four children.

She then married Mr. Formby on April 4, 1886
Source: LDS, Arkansas, Marriages, 1837-1944

There were no children from this marriage.

On her headstone, the year of her birth is incorrectly stated as 1844.

Her older brother, Henry Clay Dickson, was born in May of 1844 and this is well documented. It is unlikely that Harriet could have been born three months later in August of 1844.

However, close examination of the 1850, 1860 and 1870 U.S. Federal Censuses indicate that her year of birth was 1848, shortly before her family migrated from Chambers County, Alabama to Lafayette County, Arkansas.
