M, (25 December 1829 - 20 January 1914)
Abram Eli Hotchkin Jr.
     Abram was born at NY, USA, on 25 December 1829. Date from findagrave.com. He was the son of Abram Eli Hotchkin Sr. and Electa Smith. He married Harriet Maham at Niagara County, NY, USA, on 16 June 1856. Abram Eli Hotchkin Jr. appeared on the census of 1870 at Rives Twp, Jackson County, MI, USA. The census lists the family as: Hotchkin, Abram, 37 (1832, NY;, wife Harriett, 27 (1842), NY;dau Alice A., 8 (1861), NY; dau Luella, 6/12, Nov 1869, MI; and son Artemus, 5 (1864), MI. Also with Abram was his stepsister Lovisa Clark, 43, NY and her daughter Marietta, 6, MI. Next door lived Abram's brother Noah Frank..
     Attached is a picture of three of the children: Henry, Mable, Etta at their school.
Abram died on 20 January 1914 at Porter, Niagara County, NY, USA, at age 84.1 He was buried at North Ridge Cemetery, at Ransomville, Niagara County, NY, USA. Sec 1b, Lot 61.2

     The 1870 Census finds Abram Eli Jr. in Rives Twp., Jackson Co., MI at age 37, with his wife Harriet and children, Alice, Artimus and Luella. Also living with them at this census was half-sister Lavisa (Louvisa) Clark and her daughter Marietta. At the 1875 Census they are living in Newfane, NY with children; Alice, Artimus, Luella, John and William. Abram's birth is given as Illinois. At the 1880 Census both Abram and Harriet stated that their parents were born in New York; however, it is believed that this is a mistake for Abram. It might, however, mean that Abram Sr. moved to New York at such a very young age that his children believed that he had been born there. The 1900 census confirms his birth date as 1830 and shows his family living next door to Abram's brother, Noah Frank.
     A newspaper clipping from the Niagara Falls Journal, dated Friday, January 15 1909 describes a visit to Michigan, by the Niagara family and helps to confirm the family relationship. Abram was described as Uncle Abe and 79 years old at that time. The newspaper article said that he lived in Porter Center, NY.
     Land records of Niagara Co. show a number of real estate transactions; the first, A. E. Hotchkin, on 3 Nov., 1862, 31 acres in Twp. 14, 9th range, Lot #3. A purchase was made in 1902 from Fatima Wright, 283-129 and in 1904, Abram E. granted to his wife Harriet property shown on records 296-496. Sales were made when Abram E. and wife Harriet granted to James H. Hotchkin, Book 133, Pg. 401, 12-7-1871, Lot 27, Twp 15, Range 7, 50 acres; and when Abram E, granted to Pete Ryan, Book 139, Pg. 350.
     A deed executed by Harriet, Book 318, Pg. 426, claims the following as heirs: Artimus and wife Margaret, Abram E. Hotchkin, Alice A. Kilmer, Mabel E. Hotchkin, Julia E. Kilmer, John A. Hotchkin; all of Ransomville and Luella M. Heagadorn of Cornwell. Harriet's children, Henry and Lucy were not mentioned in this Deed.
     Abram and Harriet are buried together in North Ridge Cemetery, Section 1B, Lot #61 with dates on Abram's stone of 1828-1914. Abram and Harriet's home in Ransomville was RFD 20 Ransomville, NY. This address is now 3572 Ransomville Rd.

Abram Eli Hotchkin Sr.

M, (1802 - 28 November 1858)
     Abram Eli Hotchkin Sr. was born in 1802 at Norfolk, Litchfield County, CT, USA.1 He was the son of Noah Hodgkin III and Merab Turner. He married Electa Smith at NY, USA, in 1828. Abram Eli Hotchkin Sr. appeared on the census of 1850 at Spring Arbor, Jackson County, MI, USA. The census lists the family as: Census date 15 July 1850, Abram Hodgkins, 48, m, farmer, $800,CT;Electa, 45, f, NY; Lavisa, 25, f, NY; Ransom, 23, m, NY; Abram, 19, m, NY; Noah, 17, m, NY; James, 15, m, NY; Edwin, 13, m, NY; Rosella, 12,f, MI; Curits, 8, m, MI; Henry, 7, m, MI; Polly Smith, 84, RI.. He died on 28 November 1858 at Belvidere, Boone County, IL, USA. The death date comes from the Morman IGI records with no source information but noted as being submitted by a member of the church. The death year is confirmed by "Niagara Landmarks." There is no proof that he died in Boone, IL as it is possible, but not likely that he died in Spring Arbor before the family left Michigan..2,3

     Abram's parents are placed as Noah III and Merab Turner based on Noah's Will probate advertisement. This probate advertisement appeared in the Albany Argus for six weeks starting on 17 March 1854 and lists Abram E. Hotchkin of the Town of Newfane, NY and James H. of Wilson, NY. These two must be Abram Eli Jr. and James H., sons of Abram Eli Sr.
     Abram is listed in the records of the Belcoda Baptist Church of Wheatland, NY as Abraham E. next to his father Noah and brother-in-law Orin D. Jones.
     At first the Compiler placed Abram Eli Sr. as the son of Eli based mostly on his given name and the 1820 census showing both Eli and brother Abraham with sons the correct age; however, the 1830 census found Eli's son gone from the family, but Abraham's son still with the family. We know that Abram Eli Sr. first child was born in 1828 so it is unlikely that he would be with his parents at the 1830 census. All other individuals listed in Noah's Will advertisement were children or grandchildren so there is strong additional evidence for placing Abram Eli as Noah's son. Some addition support is given to the relationship, by Noah's daughter Anna being in Jackson Co., MI near Abram Eli's home at the 1850 census of Spring Arbor.
     Land records show that Abram Eli and Electa were living in Niagara Co., NY before September 1836, when they purchased a plot of land. "Abram E. Hotchkin, bought from Daniel Shaw on 1 September 1836 property in Twp. 15, Range 7, part of Lot #79, 50 acres, and Abraham and Electa Hotchkin of Wilson, on 4 November 1836, sold to Daniel Terry the same property." Their move to Michigan must have occurred about 18371839 based on several pieces of evidence. The special Michigan census of 1894 shows their son Edwin, born in NY 55 years ago (1837) and Jackson Co. land records show a sale of 40 acres, dated 13 July 1839, in Jackson Co. by Francis Morrison and wife to Abraham E. Hotchkin. Both parties are listed as living in the city of Jackson. The sale price was $200, with the property subject to a $60 mortgage that was due in one year. On 7 March 1840 this property was resold, for the same $200, to John Morrison. The deed gives the names of Abram E. and Electa Hotchkin, husband and wife. They were also in the 1840 Census of Spring Arbor, MI and the 1850 Census has them in Spring Arbor with all seven of Abram's children plus Lavisa and Ransom from Electa's first marriage. Lavisa and Ransom are also listed with the surname of Hotchkin. The birth of Edwin is given in NY, age 13, or 1837 and Rosella, age 12, born in MI, confirming the move to MI in 183738. I did not solve the mystery of Electa's first marriage and children Lavisa and Ransom until 1991 on a trip to Michigan; where, on the same day I found the Hotchkin Reunion Notes and at the Michigan State Library the Bigelow Genealogy. This genealogy says that the names of the children were unknown and no trace of them or their mother could be found. Abram disappeared from the records after the 1850 Census and his death is not recorded. It is likely that he died before the March 1854 advertisement of Noah's Will.
     The 1860 Federal Census of the Village of Belvidere, Boone Co., IL has an interesting mystery regarding the family that needs to be revealed and further investigated.

The calculated birth years from these ages would be: M. Hotchkin, b 1810, Alvan, b 1830, Lovisa, 1835, Frank, 1837, Smith, 1844, Henry, 1846, Emma, 1847, James, 1849, and Rosella, 1851. The census clearly suggested two adjacent homes and likely Frank is the head of the house for home #815 but Frank's wife Evilena is not indicated in the household and there is no Emma in this generation. Frank did have a daughter Emma that was born in 1867, so this could not be the Emma referred to at this census. There are several indications of great haste by the census taker. Note the reversal of age and sex for Lovisa and the blanks for state of birth. The Alvan is clearly Alvan and not Abram and Lovisa could be Louisa. There is no idea who is M. Hotchkin, a female. The fact that Frank has an occupation after his name may show that the enumerator regarded him as a "Head of Household."
[: TAB:]This whole family problem is of great concern and embarrassment, as the Compiler knows so little about this recent ancestor of his direct line. Possibly there was something that his children and grandchildren did not want to reveal, as the Hotchkin Family Reunion Notes are so complete on everyone else.4,5

     John Lawless who lived with Albert at the Soldiers and Sailors Home in Bath, NY made a statement, dated 28 July 1902 that he had known Albert since 1864 and that they worked together in the house moving business in Rochester, NY from 1865 to 1870. He says that Albert was sober, industrious and a hard working citizen but was now totally disabled. Edward Butler in his statements says Albert was peaceable and hard working but was unable to earn his support by manual labor because of his blindness. Albert made a statement that he had a great toe amputated at the National Military Home in Dayton, Ohio during 1897 or 1898 due to an earlier accident while he was a teamster at the Milwaukee Soldiers Home, Milwaukee, WI. He spent most of his life between 1875 and 1900 in various Veterans Homes. Attached is a record of this Veteran care,
     On 31 May 1898, Albert answered an inquiry from the Department of the Interior about his family. He answered that he had married Margaret Hughes in the later part of 1863 at Scottsville, Monroe Co., NY. He believed that the marriage records would be with Father Donahue or at the Parish. He said that he had not been married previously and he had one child, a daughter, Elizabeth Luella, who was over 20 years of age. In addition to serving with the NY Volunteers he also served with the 12th Regt. of PA Volunteers in 1863.
     Albert A. Hotchkin is listed in the Rochester City Directories for 1871 through 1875. The 1871 and 1872 directories don't give an occupation, but starting in 1875 he is called a driver. He lived for a while at 57 Mt. Hope and later at 4 Hubbell Park, where he and his brother were boarders in the home of their brother, George N. Hotchkin. At the 1872-73 directories, he lived by himself at 2 Alexander St.3,1

     Albert Leet Hotchkin Jr. was born in May 1871 at Troy, Rensselaer County, NY, USA. He was the son of Albert Leet Hotchkin Sr. and Delia M. Smith. He resided at Troy, Rensselaer County, NY, USA, in 1890. Albert Leet Hotchkin Jr. appeared on the census of 1900 at Seabeck, Kitsap County, WA, USA.

Married at St Mark's Church..1,2 Albert Leet Hotchkin Jr. died on 21 July 1941 at Vashon, King County, WA, USA, at age 70.3,4

     Albert Jr. appears in the 1890 Seattle City Directory as a clerk in his father's hardware store at 212 Dexter. It is likely that the family also lived at this location as sister Blanche is listed there as a boarder. In 1891 Albert Jr. is a clerk at Collins Bros and in 1892 he is listed as "removed to Seabeck, WA." Albert and his family operated the general store at Seabeck, WA during a time when Seabeck was expected to be the major port, as opposed to Seattle. After the lumber mill burned across the road from Albert's store, the town disappeared and presently nothing is left except a post office, a very small store and a few homes. The Compiler and his wife Cathy spent a very pleasant day investigating Seabeck and the historical collection regarding the town.
Middle name comes from birth records of his son.

Sec 14-3.

     The most complete information on Albert comes from the History of Rensselaer County, and the following is quoted from that publication. "Albert L. Hotchkin was the third son of George M. Hotchkin and Harriet Curtis. He received a fair education in early life. In the year 1845 he came to Troy and was for two years a clerk in the drug store of R. L. & G. Drake. His father, possessing only limited means, was unable to render pecuniary assistance to his children, and hence young Hotchkin, at the tender age of twelve years, set out for himself, and unaided and alone, with only a single sixpence in money, reached Troy, there to contend for position with young men of wealthy parentage and trained business ability. Upon the conclusion of his clerkship in the drug store he returned to Columbia County, and worked for three years on a farm. Subsequently he was with W. & L. E. Gurley for a few months, and for two years with the celebrated Dr. Green of New York. Returning to Troy, he spent several years as a clerk in the hat-store of A. P. Barringer, where he became so familiar with the business that, in 1861, he started the hat and cap business for himself in the Harmony Hall block, on River Street. In the year 1861, he married Delia M. Smith, oldest daughter of Leonard Smith, a merchant of furniture in Troy. In the great conflagration of 1862 he lost all of the property that he possessed. With no capital but experience and undaunted resolution, Mr. Hotchkin began again to work out a fortune for himself. For six years he was the general manager of the furniture-house of his father-in-law, whose death in March 1868, necessitated a change in the management of the business, and a co-partnership was formed by Mr. Hotchkin, Geo. D. Smith, and Otis Smith, with the firm name of Smith, Hotchkin and Co. In March 1876, Otis Smith withdrew from the firm, and 1 July 1878, Geo. D. Smith also retired, leaving Mr. Hotchkin, sole owner of the business, which he continues."

     Albert was involved in a number of Troy real estate deals. On 18 February 1871 he purchased a property from Charles Stickney, which became the Smith-Hotchkin and Co. Furniture store. On 21 December 1878 he received a property from Chas W. Perkins, Court Referee and between 1885 and 1886 he purchased three additional properties. Albert was a Whig and later a Democrat. For nineteen years, until January 1879, he was Treasurer of the Troy Fire Department, and held various other offices of trust. He represented the 10th Ward in the Common Council of Troy, for the years 1863-66. He was elected fire commissioner, and held that office for six years. In the fall of 1873, he was elected county treasurer, and held the office for three years. He was elected sheriff from 1876 until after 1880. Mr. Hotchkin was a member of the Apollo Lodge, and a member of the Masonic fraternity. He served seven years in the 24th Regiment of the National Guard. A City Directory of the city of Troy, NY was located for the year 1860 and Albert Sir was the only Hotchkin shown as living there at that time. He was in the Hats and Cap business located at 288 River Street and living at 609 Douw Street. In 1862 his residence changed to 37 N 2nd Street and in 1863, George M. joined him in Troy and was a city fireman; living at the Northern Hotel. The 1864 Directory says that Albert is a salesman and indicates that he is boarding at the Douw Street address (his wife’s parents home). By 1871 Albert is associated with a furniture company called Smith, Hotchkin & Co., located at 331 River and still boarding at the same Douw Street location. In 1875 the City Directories show Albert as the County Treasurer and Fire Commissioner; plus continuing to operate the furniture making business. By 1878 Albert is listed as Sheriff and his brother George is Dep. Sheriff. Albert is now living at the jail. The next available Directory in 1882 has him working at 329-331 River Street in the furniture manufacturing business with a display advertisement in the Directory, "A. L. Hotchkin, established 1855, Manufacturer and Dealer in all kinds of CABINET FURNITURE, 329 and 331 River Street." At this time he is living at 167 1st Street. Little changes in the next few years, until 1888 and 1889 when Albert is missing from both Directories; however, Albert L. Jr. appears for the first time in the 1889 Directory. Albert and Albert Jr. are back in the 1891-92 Directory with a note for both of them, "removed to Seattle." Albert Sr. appears in the 1890 and 1891 City Directory of Seattle, WA, as a hardware dealer, living at 212 Dexter; and Albert L. Jr. is working for Collins Bros. and living with his parents. The 1892 edition has a notation that Albert Jr has, "removed to Seabeck, WA." Albert's wife Delia M. appears only once in the 1894-95 Directory and daughter Jessie appears in the 1892 edition. Jessie boarded at Thomas St., one block West of Warner and Delia at 120 Roy St.

     Albert Sr.'s obituary was published in the Seattle Post Intelligence, and covered four columns including a very good picture of Albert in his Masonic Uniform. This obituary says, "Mr. Hotchkin was born in Chatham, Columbia County, NY, March 8, 1833. His father George M. Hotchkin, settled in Columbia County in 1830 and although a farmer by occupation, held many offices of trust in Chatham." The obituary repeats all of the information in the Rensselaer County biography but adds: "He was a 32nd degree Mason and had lived in Washington for nine years prior to his death. He is survived by his wife Delia, son Albert Jr. and two daughters, Mrs. H. J. Collins of Ballard, WA and Mrs. Walter McFarlane of Cosmopolis, WA." At one point in the article, another daughter, Mrs. Lyman Burke is mentioned; even though it says that two daughters survive him. The Compiler is not positive that he has tied the daughters to the correct husband. The obituary says that Albert Jr has just returned from Rampart, Alaska and that his son-in-law, H. J. Collins is still living there.

     The Rensselaer County biography identifies his father as George M. Hotchkin of Chatham, Columbia Co., NY who came to Troy in 1846 and died in 1847 at age fifty-three. It also identifies his grandfather as Geo. M. Hotchkin, a native of Madison Co., NY where he lived during his life.

     The records of Seabeck, WA show that Albert L. Hotchkin Sr, on 11 January 1895 was appointed Justice of the Peace, when the elected officer, W. J. Sargent, failed to qualify. Records at Seabeck, WA show that he was Post Master there and owned the local supply store across the road from the lumber mill. He bought the store in 1900 and sold it to Albert Halverson about 1914. In 1886 Seabeck was on its way to being the large shipping port for the northwest when a donkey engine unloading a vessel started a fire and the mill and town totally burned. It never recovered and Seattle became that large shipping port.

     In a newspaper article about Nettie and her husband Harry; Albert is described as one of the best know public men in the famous city of collars and cuffs. "Although he was Sheriff and County Treasurer for many years, he was best known as the organizer and Manager of the famous Haymaker Baseball Club."

     His middle name Leet that is carried for a number of generations is likely a variation of Leete and is the surname used by Albert's fathers sister Harriet and her husband Harvey Leete or Leet.5,6

Albert T. Hotchkin

M, (10 October 1849 - 28 April 1898)
     Albert T. Hotchkin was born on 10 October 1849 at Liberty, Sullivan County, NY, USA. He was the son of Joshua Francis (James) Hotchkin and Lydia Novill Grant. He married Philena Krum at Liberty, Sullivan County, NY, circa 1870. Albert T. Hotchkin appeared on the census of 1880 at Sullivan County, NY, USA. The census lists the family as: Hotchkin, Albert, age 28, b NY; wife Philena, 28, NY; son Wm M., 1; ED140,S5,L29. He died on 28 April 1898 at Liberty, Sullivan County, NY, at age 48.1,2 He was buried at Hodge Cemetery, at Neversink, Sullivan County, NY, USA.

     Albert's birth and death are recorded in family bible records. The family bible records give a death date of 28 April 1909 and Barber, Sullivan Co. Index of Wills, PG 28 confirms this date; however, his gravestone gives a date of 1898. The Will records would seem to be strong evidence of his death; however, at the 1900 census, he is not with his family so the Compiler is going to use the 1898 date. The 1880 census shows him a 29-year-old farmer, making his birth as 1850/51. Philena had a later marriage to Nicholas Grant and at the 1920 census, Philena Grant and daughter Nellie Hotchkin are living together in Sullivan Co., NY.
