Harriet Augusta Charles Keesy
Birth: Sep. 14, 1856
Richland County
Ohio, USA
Death: May 1, 1929
Seneca County
Ohio, USA

According to the record of her birth, Hattie was the daughter of Robert Charles and Elizabeth (Kertler) Charles. According to the record of Hattie's death, her mother was Elizabeth (Morehart) Charles.

In the 1860 Census, Robert Charles (born c.1811) and Elizabeth Charles (born c.1820) were living in Lucas, Monroe Township, Richland County, Ohio, and he was a "carpenter." Robert was born in New York and Elizabeth was born in Pennsylvania. Their daughter, Harriet, was 4 years old in 1860.

Robert may possibly be the Robert Charles (c.1811 - 11 Apr 1876) who is buried in Mount Olive Cemetery, Richland County, Ohio. Robert is #66913888. There is also an Elizabeth Charles (c.1819 - 1 Dec 1864) buried in Mount Olive Cemetery. She is #66913774.

Hattie was married to Rev. William "Allen" Keesy on 9 Feb 1875 by Rev. William Mathers of Oceola, Crawford County, Ohio. Hattie was his second wife.

Hattie applied for Allen's Civil War pension because she had two children under the age of 16 when he died in 1910. In the 1920 Census, Harriet lived in the 2nd Ward (Clinton) in Tiffin with her youngest son, Robert.

Hattie's death certificate says she was buried in Greenlawn Cemetery in Tiffin, Seneca County, Ohio, and there is a plot for her there. She is #69022824. Also, the year of Harriet's death is not on her gravemarker in Bethel Cemetery, so she probably wasn't dead when it was installed.

Hattie's known siblings were:

1) George J. Charles (born c.1838) was born in Ohio.

2) John Charles (born c.1842) was born in Ohio.

3) William W. Charles (born c.1848) was born in Ohio.

4) Jacob Charles (born c.1855) was born in Ohio.

5) Mary E. Charles (born c.1858) was born in Ohio.
