Finding Faulkner: The Progeny | Mary Ann Boak {Gen 5}

It started, as good quests always do, with a family tale.

Mary Ann Boak  (John Boak, Achsah, William Bull, James, William) was born in Orange Co, New York, June 28th, 1825, to parents John Boak and Maria Clark.

Mary Ann married Norman Randall Norton (1816-1883) on February 17th 1848, most likely in Orange Co., New York but possibly in Chemung Co., New York.

The couple had at least six children: all born Elmira, Chemung Co., New York

  • Mary Emily Norton b. 26 Apr 1849 d.17 Jan 1922 never married
  • Caroline C Norton b. May 1851 d. 22 Sep 1916 m. Frank K Gould
  • Hannah M Norton b. 2 Nov 1853 d. 27 Jan 1934 never married
  • Grace D Norton b. 1 Apr 1856 d. 11 Aug 1931 never married
  • Frances K Norton b. 1865 d. 21 Mar 1929 never married
  • Flora W Norton b. 1866 d. BEF 1870 in infancy

I suspect there may have been more children, there is a gap of almost 10 years between the 4th and 5th known children. 

Norman Randall (N R) was employed by the Elmira Roller Mill. 

Mary Ann Boak Norton never lived to see her children grown or her daughter Carolina marry. Mary Ann died January 26th 1869 at the age of 43. Cause of death is currently unknown. Mary Ann is buried in the Woodlawn Cemetery in Elmira, Chemung Co, New York.

Norman Randall Nelson lived another thirteen years, remaining a widower. He died November 5th 1883 at the age of 66. Norman Randall is buried in the Woodlawn Cemetery in Elmira, Chemung Co, New York along side his wife and several children.
