Benjamin LAWTON [Parents] was born about 1660.

He had the following children:

  F i Mary LAWTON

Josiah HINES was born in 1801. He married Martha.

Calvin Brooks is found in the 1850 Vermont Census, "ORLE" County, Lowell Township, p. 82. He is age 14, male, born in Vermont, in the household of Joseph Souther, age 32, b. N.H., Mary Ann, age 32, b. Vt., and Lucy, age 2, b. Vt. On p. 78 of same township is found: Josiah D. Hines, age 49; Martha W. Hines, age 46; Ann Hines, age 13; Freeman Brooks [not a Hines], age 12; Lovina Hines, age 12, female; and Advin [no last name given but he was a Brooks], age 24, female [...but this is incorrect as he was a male and his name looks like "Albin" in the 1854-9 letter]. Since Calvin and his brothers Advin and Freeman have the Brooks last name, I am going to assume that Martha earlier married a Brooks and he died and she married Josiah Hines, also a widower, since he has two daughters aged 12 and 13 with the Hines last name. For some reason, Josiah Hines did not take in all of the children of Martha's. Calvin was farmed out and Abigail was
adopted into the Wells family. She probably also started out as a Brooks. Since Abigail was only 7 years old in 1850, it is doubtful that the two Hines girls listed in this census were actual daughters of Martha's.

There are other Hinds in this state in the same 1850 census: In "LAMO" County, Eden township, p. 89, is found: Josiah D. Hinds, age 27, born Vt.; Catherine Hinds, age 21, born N.H.; and Jane, age 2, female, born Vermont. This must be the son of Josiah Hinds that Martha married. In the 1869-5 letter, Martha Hinds mentions "Josiah and Family are as well as usual except little Jane", so this confirms the relationship. The family is also mentioned in letter 1869-8.

In this census, they appear to be in the house-hold of Sylvester Carpenter, age 31, b. Vt.; Lodena Carpenter, age 27, born N.H.; and Mindwell Carpenter, age 6, born Vt. It is possible that Lodena is Catherine Hinds sister as they are about the same age and both came from N.H.

In the same "LAMO" County, Eden township, p. 88, is: Abel S. Hinds, age 41, born Vt., and Maria [?] Hinds, age 40, born Vt., and five children ages 9-19, all born in Vt. This is likely to be the brother of Josiah D. Hines Sr., who married Martha.

In the same township, p. 89 is found: Eli Hinds Jr., age 58, born Mass; Lydia Hinds, age 46, born N.H., and seven children, all born in Vt., ages 3-17. Also in the family is Eli Hinds, age 83; Polly Hinds, age 81; both born in Mass. and obviously the parents of Eli Hinds Jr., and also Patsy [or Patty] Hinds, age 47, b. Vt., probably a spinster daughter. Eli Jr. is perhaps the oldest child of Eli Sr., and inherited the farm and the parents stayed there with them, as was the custom.

But, complicating the picture, is another family found in the same Vermont census, FRAN Co., Franklin Township, p. 347: Warren Hines, age 42, born Vt.; Sibel [?] Hines, age 40, born Vt., Caroline Hines, age 16; Lucella Hines, age 11; Adelpha Hines, age 4; Arnold Brooks, age 20; Harmon Brooks, age 12 [all above born in Vt.], and Elizabeth Hines age 77, born Rhode Island. In the family next to them is found Martha Hines, age 36, born Vt., and she is a real puzzle. This could not be the Warren mentioned in all of the letters as a brother of Calvin and Abbie as he is too old and Letter 1854-9 says he was not married at that time. But Letter 1860-8 mentions Caroline and "Warren's wife" in the same breath. I have copies of all of these censuses.

Martha was born about 1804. She married Josiah HINES.

Other marriages:

See letter under her son Calvin. She apparently married a Brooks first and then a Hines (Hinds).
