Wife: Sarah Ingalls (10)
Died: 20 Oct 1844 in Hartford, Washington, NY
02 (F): Nancy Gould
Born: about 1840 in NY (13)
1940 Census says there were two males under the age of 5 but the 1850 census shows only one male, Abner and one female, Nancy, who was born in 1840.
Evelyn writes (10 Aug 2013) I found that Abner had died in the Civil War and since he had no wife, children or mother to apply for his pension, Alpha was able to receive it. He just had to prove that he needed it and that she had died 20 Oct 1844.
From the pension application I learned that Alpha had married Sarah Ingalls 23 Jan 1833 and I also learned that the only people still living who were present at her death were Eliza and Jane.
(01) Abner Gould:
Abner died as a Union Soldier in Civil War.
Ceremony performed by Elder Cobb, a Methodist minister
Alph Goald 2 males under 5
1 male 30-40
1 female 20-30
[Numbers 344 and 385 are on this sheet
Listed on the same page are:
Otis Ingles family of 11
Daniel Hills family of 6]
[The pension is based on the service of Alpha's son Abner Gould]
[connects Alpha to Eliza and Jane]
When his (Abner Gould's) father, Alpha, applied for the pension he had to give proof that 1) his son was dead. 2) there was no wife. 3) there was no mother. The father comes after them for the pension. In the records I found that Alpha was married to Sarah Ingalls in 14th Township, Warren County, NY on Jan 23, 1833 by Elder Cobb a Methodist Minister. Sarah (or Sally) died 20 Oct 1844 in Hartford, Washington, NY Present at her death were Alpha Gould, Eliza Woodward and Jane S. Pierce
