Death: May, 1917

Julia married John Beede in 1858 in Eddington, Penobscot, Maine. They had two children, Hannah and Fred, by 1861.

John served in the Civil War, returning to Maine having been severely injured. The marriage ended in divorce in 1866. He later showed up in California and remarried there.

Julia married Alexander Dowdell in 1867, a recent immigrant from Canada. By 1880, they had moved to Newaygo County, Michigan. Based on census information in 1900 and 1910, they must have had a child who died prior to 1900.

Alexander died in 1905. Julia again remarried to a widower, George William Prentice who died in Nov 1909 and was buried with his first wife, Mary, in Bay County, Michigan.

Julia died in 1917 and is buried with Alexander Dowdell in Hesperia, Newaygo County, Michigan.
