Harriet TOTMAN Williams was my great-great-great grandmother. I am descended from her daughter, Louisa WILLIAMS Lincoln (wife of James Madison Monroe Lincoln).
Through the kindness of a stranger (Kaci), we just learned in April 2011 that Harriet is buried in Sand Rock Cemetery (per cemetery records).
Harriet was born on 30 Sept 1815 in New York and died on 26 March 1887 in Bern Township, Athens County, Ohio (date and place confirmed in Ohio Death Records). She was the daughter of Reuben Totman (1795-bef 1850) and Tryphena CURTIS (1795-1874).
Harriet married Edward Williams (1818-1893) on December 29, 1839 in Athens Co., Ohio per an Ohio marriage record. Harriet and Edward were married by Joseph Mitchell, Justice of the Peace.
Harriet and Edward had the following children:
Lydia (1836- ), Louisa (1840–1872), Henry (1842– ), Isaac (1848- ), Sarah Jane (1850-1900 to 1905), Orinda F. (1852-1930), Rebecca (1855/58-1928), George W. (1855-1917) and Mary Williams (1861–1935).
They are found on the 1840 through 1870 censuses in Rome Township, Athens Co., Ohio (for all four of the census records).
Harriet is listed on the 1880 census for Bern Township, Athens Co., Ohio as widowed as Edward died on October 4, 1873. In addition, her Ohio death record also lists her as widowed.
We still have a few more mysteries to solve and that includes the burial location of their daughter, Louisa WILLIAMS Lincoln (2 Oct 1840 to 26 Feb 1872) who died in Orange Township, Delaware Co., Ohio. As I said, Louisa is my great-great grandmother.
*I cannot link their daughters to them as I did not add their records to findagrave, but am listing their names and places of burial so people can find them.
