New York, USA
|Death: ||Nov. 30, 1905|
She was the daughter of unknown Bradt, born in Germany, and unknown Shaw, born in what is now Cape Vincent, NY. At the time Maria was born it was the Town of Lyme, NY and a portion of it separated in 1849 and became Cape Vincent. She was born and raised in Lyme/Cape Vincent, Jefferson, NY and married Augustus V DeMarsh in 1846 in Clayton, NY, not far from Cape Vincent. This information is derived from her death certificate and various census and documented information. There is some discrepancy in the date of her birth and the place from this information and that appearing in her obituary. At this point we are inclined to go with the documented information showing.
Following is a Transcription of the Obituary for Maria B DeMarsh –Leslie Local Republican newspaper 7 Dec 1905.
Maria B DeMarsh was born at Gouverneur, St Lawrence County, NY Feb 28, 1826. Her childhood and girlhood were spent in the township of Lime, NY. On the 26th of December 1846, in the village of Clayton, NY, she was united in marriage with Augustus V DeMarsh. The early years of her married life were spent in the state of New York, her first home being in Three Mile Bay. Many years ago she and her husband came to the then wilderness of Michigan, among their homes being Mason, Tecumseh, and Onondago. Some 35 years ago they located here in Leslie, where she resided until taking up her residence with her eldest daughter, Mrs. Emily Parkham of Delray, Mich. in May of the present year. On Thanksgiving Day, Nov 30, 1905 she passed peacefully away, leaving to mourn her loss her husband, a sister Mrs. Sarah J Mills of Ansley, Neb, and five of the ten children born to her. Four daughters and one son – Mrs. Emily Parkham of Delray, Mrs. Mary Staats of Leslie, Mrs. Catherine Stebbins of Chicago, Eva J DeMarsh of Jackson, Joseph J DeMarsh of Menominee.
A long life of earnest endeavor has drawn to a close. God, who doeth all things well, has given the weary one rest. Mother's joys and sorrows, hopes and fears, are all ended, and she is with her Heavenly Father and the mother for whom she longed in her last moments. On Saturday, Dec 2, 1905 at 2:30pm, services were held in the Methodist church here by the pastor, Rev W W Lamport, and the mother was laid to rest in Woodlawn cemetery beside the son, Theodore, who died many years ago.
