Son Squires Travels to Turkey & Greece - 

A passport for Frances Henry Hagerman born February 1 1823, age 71 at time of application in 1893. Occupation farmer.  Planning to travel to "Turkey in Europe and Asia and Greece"  I am so curious as to why he was going on this trip, and who may have went with him.


1823 - Son Frances Henry Hagerman is Born
10 years after her last child was born, Susanna at age 42, has another baby.
That's a large gap.

In 1850 Frances is still unmarried, and Squires never married. So the child under age 5 is a bit of a mystery, as is the female between 20 & 29 - but the unknown female in 1830 that was between 10 & 14 would be between 20 and 24 in 1840.

Reasearch:

When tracing the children, I found that there are two Frances Hagermans in this area both born in 1823.  One married a Mary, ours married a a Julianna - which we know from the land deed in 1864.  The 1880 census lists our Frances as Frank H - leading me to a passport application in the name of Frances Henry Hagerman, confirming his date of birth as February 1 1823.  The other Frances was born in May of 1823.
