Charles H. HOXIE

Charles H. HOXIE

Charles H. HOXIE was born 15 Sept 1871 in Mystic, a son of John Holdredge HOXIE and his wife Mary E. VanRyper. He had three brothers and a sister. He is listed with his family in the 1880 census in Stonington at the age of 9 and by the time the next census rolled around in 1900, he was married to a woman named Marguerite who is buried next to him.

The 1900 census MAY have Charles and Marguerite listed twice. Once on the 6th of June and the next on the 11th of June once in Stonington and the next in Boston. It is possible that they moved to Boston that week.

The one in Stonington was enumerated by his own brother, John Holdridge HOXIE, Jr. so it holds more credibility in evidence. A side by side comparison study is the next step in the process. It is enough to make a genealogist go mad.

Charles H. HOXIE died 29 Jan 1928 at the age of 56. It appears that he and his wife did not have children.

Thanks to my fellow researcher, Charles and Marguerite had a daughter who is also buried here. I wondered who she was! With so many people named Hoxie and the inconsistency of women having their maiden names  on the gravestones, it is hard to be positive who is a daughter/granddaughter of family members.

Charles and Margaurite DID have a daughter. Her name was Elizabeth F. Hoxie, and she also has a stone at Elm Grove. Born 9 Nov 1900 and died 16 Dec 1986, it seems that she never married or had children. After her father's death, she and her mother took at least 2 cruises together (to France & Bermuda).
