The 1900 US federal census for Benton township, Cheboygan Co, MI shows
Mary A. Haskin, age 54, born in England in 1846 as the head of
household. The 1900 census gives the most information about
birthdates, children, etc. so perhaps you'll find something helpful.
Mary A. Haskin, head, white, female, b. Oct 1845, age 54, widow, 5 of 7
children survive, b. England, parents both born England. farmer
Chas., son, white, male, b. Nov 1874, age 25, single, b.
Canada/English, father b. New York, mother born England, farm laborer
Clara B., daughter, white, female, b. Apr 1881, age 19, single, b.
Michigan, father born New York, mother born England, milliner
All can read, write and speak English. Mary and son immigrated to US
in 1878, here 22 years. The abode is a farm, owned with a mortgage.
In 1880 this family was in Selma Twp, Wexford Co, MI:
Mary Ann Haskin, resided in the home of her father-in-law, Ithamar
Ithamar Haskin, head, age 72, widow, farmer, b. NY
Mary Ann Haskin, daughter-in-law, age 38, b. England, parents b.
England, keeping house, married, born England, parents b. England
William Haskin, son, age 26, b. Canada, father b. NY, mother b. Canada,
farmer, single, b. Canada.
Sarah Haskin, age 12, grand daughter, attends school, b. Canada
William B. Haskin, age 11, grandson, attends school, b. Canada
Susan Haskin, age 8, grand daughter, b. Canada
Charles L. Haskin, age 6, grandson, b. Canada
The husband of Mary Ann Haskin was not named. It wasn't William, age
26, who was single and much younger than Mary Ann.
This is not my family line, just helping out.
