Other facts




Married Mary Louise ATHERTON


  • The first evidence of this man's surname (besides some genealogiesthat give Harriett's name with no documentation) is in the census of1900 in the name of his two daughters.

    In 1900 Harriett and her sister Pearl are reported as stepchildren inthe home of widow Emma Hicks, with Emma's two Hicks children.  Toaccount for the relationships and ages, with the last names reported,Emma's recently deceased husband was Mr Ealand the two girls' fatherby Mr Ealand's first wife.  It would appear he died, and Emma marriedMr Hicks, then he died after July 1899, when the last child Florencewas reported born.

    In what appears to be an enumerator error, Harriett E is reported as aSon and Male, even though she matches Harriett Fowler in 1910, thewife of Charles B Fowler, whose sister Pearl is int he same householdmarried to Charlie's brother.

    Some additional troublesome discrepancies, the Ealand girls' father isreported as born in Texas, while the Hicks children's father isreported as born in England.  An interesting highlight appears in the1910 census, where we see that both Harriet's and Pearl's father isalso reported as born in England.  This would not match the differentlast  names but might indicate some other close relationship among thefamilies.  If this all was not so much fun, one might get frustratedand discouraged!

    I found an entry that appears to be for him under the name of ArthurEaland, in San Antonio's City Directory for 1892.  No wife is reportedfor him (and minor children are not usually reported in thesedirectories), so it appears from this that Mrs Ealand died  betweenthe birht of Harriett in Dec 1890 and early 1892 when the directorywas being compiled.  He is the only Ealand in the book.
