If have hit a wall on the parents of my 2nd Great Grandmother, Cordelia Clarissa Hyde
Cordelia Clarissa (Hyde)Vaughn b. abt 1825 in New York and probably Cattaragus County, d. abt 1859 in Waupaca County, WI
Christopher Columbus Vaughn/Vaughan (during this period it was spelled both ways on different documents) b. 23 Dec 1826 Concord, NY and d. 17 July 1907 Simpson, Mitchell County, KA, buried at Beloit, KA.
Cordelia and Columbus were married abt 1848 in NY and moved to Waupaca, Waupaca County, WI abt 1849. They had 5 children:
Edward Ephinetus b. 21 Jun 1850
Charles Alden b. 11 Oct 1851
George Arthur b. 25 Jun 1854 (my Great Grandfather)
Rose Effie b. 10 Mar 1857
Hattie b/d in 1859
Other information - not necessarily proven -
In the 1850 US Census there was a Ann Hyde - 18, born in NY living with Columbus and Cordelia. I am assuming that she is a sister to Cordelia. Other sources indicate that her name was Ann/Anne Dorothy Hyde born 13 Jun 1832 in Menden, Cattaragus County, NY and died 8 Jan 1906 in Clarion, Wright County, IA. She married in 1851 in Wayanwega, Waupaca County, WI, a Benjamine H. Birdsall b. 8 Jan 1810 Columbia County, NY and d. 25 Jul 1888 in Wall Lake, Wright County, IA. In the FamilySearch records her father is listed as Alden Hyde and mother as Mary Sherman with no birth/death dates. Alden Hyde (FamilySearch lists him as being born in England, but later Census records (1880) for Anne (Hyde) Birdsall lists her father has born in NY and mother in VT.) Alden Hyde makes a certain sense given the second child of Columbus and Cordelia was named Charles Alden. There was a Alden Hyde who owned property in Cattaragus County, NY in the early 1800 (1820-30) but I have not further in!
formation on him. Have not been able to find him in Census reports - not sure why.
Any information about this Cordelia and her parents will be greatly appreciated.
