Henry A. Hitchcock
Hi Laura... I added photos for this Civil War Veteran. Here is more info that you can add:

From Vermont in the Civil War Website:

Vermont Military Service:

Enlisted 1 June 1861 at age 25 in 3rd Vermont Infantry, credited to Westfield, Vt.
Mustered In: 16 July 1861 as Sergeant, Co.B
Mustered Out: 1 August 1862

Hemenway's Historical Gazetteer, 1877, iii:353

Researcher: Submitted By Deanna French.

HENRY A. HITCHCOCK was son of Newton Hitchcock, and grand-son of David Hitchcock, one of the first settlers in the town. He was the first to enlist from this town. He joined the 3d Vermont, Co. B., June 1, 1861. He served 'till August 1, 1862, when he was discharged on account of ill health. In December of '63, he enlisted in the 39th N.Y.. At the battle of the Wilderness, May 6, 1864, his leg was shattered by a shot. The next day his limb was amputated and he was started in an ambulance for Fredericksburg, but the guerillas turned the train of wounded and dying men back to Chancellorsville, and the next day, May 8th he died. His age was 29 years.

Marriage and divorce.
I read your questions to Fred Saar about a memorial and someone marrying when the divorce wasn't finished.

I just came across a second marriage for someone who filed for divorce-for abandonment too. It took four years. Right or wrong-she remarried and had a child with her second husband. It looks like she died from complications from surgery and two months after she died, her papers were finally entered into the county register as final. When she remarried-she used her maiden name and didn't indicate that she was married before.

In the memorial, I have added a link to the contributor profile of the person who recently gave me that info.

It does occur to me that there are probably death certificates for William C and Hattie J. issued by the state of CT (if they died in Ct) that might list their parents.

RE: Lyon Family Buried in Barlow Cemetery , Woodstock,Windham,CT C
I used the "Hale Collection" as my basic list to create memorials. Here's what the Hale Collection lists:

Lyon, Hattie J., wife of William C., born Oct. 17, 1846, died Aug. 8, 1918,

Lyon, William C., born Jan. 1, 1850, died Aug. 2, 1906.

Lyon, Anna Mabel, daughter of William C. & Hattie J., died Jan. 30, 1879, age 1 yr 11 mos 16 days.

I use the list, I match my photos to the list, check the names and dates, create the memorial. You're right there is nothing on the stone that says Hattie J is William's wife. I went to the cemetery and double checked to make sure it didn't say husband and wife on top. The Hale Collection said she was the wife of William. I can speculate that because the stones are next to each other (and identical) followed by a stone for Anna Mabel dau. of Hattie J, that someone assumed that William and Hattie were married as opposed to Hattie having an illegitimate child. Although I tend to think that Anna's stone would have said d/o William & Hattie had they both been her parents.

As for William - the stone definitely says "C" not "S". Stone cutter error? Or someone else entirely. I couldn't find any birth records for Oliver's children.

I put a photo of the row of stones at Oliver's memorial so you can see how they fit together. there is a caption. I'm sorry I can't be more help, except I'll remove some of the unproven data.

Thank y ou for your note. I went by the records kept by the cemetery. The dates on the stones do not always match. If you are a relative and would like me to transfer to you, I would be glad to do so. I was just trying to help to get each of these people on line to help family members. In my own family, I have also found that stone dates do not match and I know the correct dates.
