Elsie Post HOXIE

Originally uploaded by midgefrazel
Elsie Post HOXIE was the daughter of Charles Denison Hoxie and Rosa A. POST. She was born in Brooklyn, NY on 11 Nov 1884 and appears in the 1900 and 1910 census with her parents in Brooklyn. The date on the 1910 census is 23 Apr and she married Frank Howland Parcells on 9 November of that year.

This couple lived their married life in New York until Frank died in 1946. Elsie died 16 July 1972. They had no children and are buried side-by-side in the Hoxie plot at Elm Grove Cemetery in Mystic, New London, CT.

As you can see by the DAR emblem on her gravestone, Elsie was a n active member of the Daughters of the American Revolution. The Denison Genealogy (page 458) states that in addition to the DAR, Elsie was a member of the National Society of Daughters of Founders and Patriots of America and she was President General of the Society of Colonial Daughters of the 17th century. Elise was educated at the Packer Collegiate Inst.

Elsie's list of ancestors in the DAR database include: Eleazer Bill, Stephen Barber, Daniel Denison, Amos Clift, Gideon Hoxie, Phineas Post and Samuel Clift. That's quite a list and helps confirm her list of ancestors for the Hoxie descendants I am working with on this project.
