Margaret Baxter

F, #5586, b. 1792

Family: James McQueen (b. 17 November 1792, d. after 1863)

Biography

Birth1792Margaret Baxter was born in 1792.
Baptism14 September 1792She was baptized on 14 September 1792 in Duffus, Moray, Scotland. Father: Robert Baxter
Mother: Jean Marr.
This is 5 years before the birthdate expected by the US census entries. In the Parish Records, for these parents, I see Agnes, 1790, Margaret, 1792, Penelope, 1797, Alexander, 1800, John, 1804 and Robert 1808.1
Marriage12 April 1836James McQueen and she were married on 12 April 1836 in Duffus, Moray, Scotland, "McQueen & Baxter: James McQueen sp.wright, in Burgh-head & Margaret Baxter, Spinster, in Rosiles, were married on banns, 12th April 1836."

This marriage took place 3 days before boarding the ship for New York. This compiler believes that "married on banns" means that the obligatory 3 readings of the banns took place on the day of marriage. This could be done for a fee, called the "caution" (pronounced kay-shun).

The timing of this marriage raises tantalizing questions of the personal aspects of this marriage, so few days before leaving Scotland forever. We don't know how long James had been a widow. We can only wonder what 18-year-old Margaret McQueen may have felt about her new step-mother. What had happened to the other children, who did not join the newly married couple on the voyage?2
In household7 October 1855She appeared in the household of James McQueen in the census 7 October 1855 at 9th Ward in Brooklyn, Kings County, New York. James is listed as Listed as age 63, born in Scotland, 20 years residence in city, Carpenter, Alien (as opposed to the other listings of Native or Naturalized), with wife Margaret, age 58, born in Scotland, Alien.3
Note1863In 1863, in Brooklyn, Kings County, New York, In 1863, James McQueen is no longer listed in the Brooklyn City Directories (checked through 1871). In 1863, there is a Margaret McQueen, widow, 227 S. 2nd. In 1864, there are two listings for Margaret McQueen, widow, one at Ainslie near Bushwick Ave., and one at Atlantic Ave. near Nostrand Ave. In 1865, there is a Margaret McQueen, widow, at 94 S. 2nd, and a Margaret McQuinn, widow, at Atlantic Ave near Nostrand Ave. In 1866, there is a Margaret McQuinn, widow, at Atlantic near Clove Rd.4
Death-Not-Foundafter 1863Available death records for Brooklyn, Kings County, New York, have been reviewed as of after 1863 and no records for Margaret Baxter have yet been found.

Parents

FatherBenjamin Pratt (b. 1795, d. about 1858)

Biography

BirthAbraham Pratt was born. Abraham Pratt was the son of a Benjamin Pratt. He may not have been the son of our Benjamin, it may have been some other Benjamin Pratt. This needs further research.
Death1847He died in 1847 in Perote, Vera Cruz, Mexico, according to a record in the Secretary of State Petitions Collection, Indiana State Digital Archives. (See entry below).

In the 1840's the Castel of San Carlos was used as a prison to hold American captives, as well as Mexican political prisoners. On 22 Apr 1847, an American division under Brigadier General William Worth occupied Perote Castle, which had been abandoned several days earlier by Mexican soldiers. During the US occupation of Mexico (1847-48) Perote Castle served as a hospital. From The Encyclopedia of the Mexican-American War: A Political, Social, and Military History, by Spencer C. Tucker, 2013, E-book, www.abc-clio.com.
Criminal1848He was in 1848 in Tippecanoe County, Indiana. listed in an Index entry of the Indiana State Digital Archives, Record Series:Institution Records, Collection: Secretary of State Petitions. Role of Participant: Accused. Crime of Accused: Obtaining goods under false pretenses. Petition For: Discharge forfeiture of recognizance. Notes: joined United States Army, was killed in Mexico at Perote. Secretary of State Document Reference Number SEC02669.

In the Secretary of States records on Indiana Digital Archives, it lists this offence under Subtype Pardons and Paroles. The explanatory note states "Citizens frequently wrote to the governor attempting to gain pardons, paroles, reprieves, communtations of sentences, or remissions of fine for crimes ranging from swearing to murder. The petitions were filed by the Secretary of State. Files may consist of as little as one page or several folders. The include leters of support, condemnation, petitions, articles and are an invaluable resource. For quesitons or to obtain copies, please email an archivist at arc!iara.in.gov.
Witness17 May 1849He was mentioned in a property transaction of Benjamin Pratt on 17 May 1849 in Cass County, Indiana. per search of La Porte/Winamac Land Office Entries database on the Indiana Commission of Public Records website, http://www.in.gov/icpr.

Lot EX MLW E NE
Section 9
Twp 24N
Range 03E

The Indiana Digital Archives lists this as 10 Acres, but the BLM lists it as 120 Acres.

The mapviewer in HistoryGeo has a date of 6/1/1850.

This property was in Howard County, which had been Cass County until 1844, and was about 20 miles south-southeast of Logansport, near Kokomo.
BLM Record of this sale.

This property was warranted to Abraham Pratt under the ScripWarrant Act of 1847, and he was deceased at the time of issue so it was issued to his father and heir, Benjamin. This ScripWarrant Act was to grant land to soldiers in the Mexican-American War, and Abraham served in Company G, Seventh Regiment, United States Infantry.

If Abraham had been a young man during the Mexican-American War (1846-48), our Benjamin was probably too old to have been his father. However, this is located in an area where Benjamin was known to have lived, so I am listing it for further research.

"The "land office business" in Indiana began in 1801, when public lands in the southeastern corner of the Indiana Territory were put up for sale at Cincinnati. The U.S. Congress subsequently opened land offices at Vincennes in 1804; at Jeffersonville in 1807; in 1819 at Terre Haute (later Crawfordsville) and Brookville (later Indianapolis); and at Ft. Wayne in 1822. An additional land office opened at LaPorte in 1833; six years later, the office was moved to Winamac. The LaPorte- Winamac District embraced all or part of the present counties of Benton, Carroll, Cass, Elkhart, Fulton, Howard, Jasper, Kosciusko, Lake, LaPorte, Marshall, Miami, Newton, Porter, Pulaski, St. Joseph, Starke, Wabash, and White."1

Obituary6 September 18936 September 1893, Logansport, Cass County, Indiana, Logansport Pharos-Tribune Obituary:. Oscar Pratt, son of the late Seth Pratt, died at the home of his mother, Mrs. Emma Pratt, on Broadway Sunday morning of typhoid fever, aged 17 years.

Oscar was a bright and companionable boy who was regarded most highly by his associates, and his death comes as a sharp blow to them and to his widowed mother. His illness was not of long duration, and his death was not expected, making the blow all the more severe. He had for two years past been a clerk at D.E. Pryor's drug store and his affability and attention to duty had made him a general favorite. He was a studious boy and possessed of excellent qualifications, giving great promise of a useful life. It is sad this promising career should thus have been cut short.

The funeral was held yesterday afternoon at the family residence, services conducted by Rev. D. P. Putnam. Interment was made in Mt. Hope cemetery.
