A few posts ago, I shared news of some photos having been taken of the grave markers in the Trewin-Ludey plot at Evergreen Cemetery in Hillside, NJ. I’d noted that Elizabeth Sargent Trewin’s brother William Sargent was buried there together with his wife Sarah. The whereabouts of Wm and Elizabeth’s sister Sarah was unknown. In fact, other than a date of birth, I knew nothing about her. The three siblings as well as another brother, Rev. Samuel Sargent, were the children of Mary Wills and William Sargent who left England with their parents to start a new life in America during the post-Civil War reconstruction. (Recall from numerous previous posts that Mary Wills’s was George Wills’s youngest daughter.)

2/15/1926 Obituary for Elizabeth Sargent Trewin (the 2 sons mentioned were stepsons, William Clarence and Albert Phillips; their mother was Edith Fry, William Trewin’s 1st wife); “Mrs. Coles” is a typo–should be “Mrs. Boles”

Well, one big clue as to what became of Sarah (b. cir. 1858-1860) has been right under my nose for months and I failed to realize it. Buried at the bottom of Elizabeth Sargent Trewin’s obituary notice was the name of a surviving sister, Mrs. R.O. Hemion! With that tidbit, I discovered some census records that revealed that Sarah went by the name Sadie, and that she was married to Richard O. Hemion, a machinist, who was born in 1857 in Rockland County, NY,  to John and Catharine Hemion. In 1880, he was working as a cigar maker in Jersey City, NJ, and living with an older sister, Amelia Curyansen, and her family.  [I saw some message boards stating the surname was actually Auryansen, and was misspelled in that record. Auryansen is a Dutch surname, and evidently the history of the family in America goes way back.] It is in Jersey City that he must have become acquainted with Sadie. According to the 1900 census, they were married in roughly 1882. The pair settled in East Rutherford, NJ, and had four children: Cora, Mabel, Everett, and Edith (see below for dates). By 1920, Sadie is listed as a widow and living with children Cora and Everett, by then in their thirties. I could not view the actual records for 1910 and 1920 since you have to be an ancestry.com subscriber to access them (one of my pet peeves). So, who knows what other little morsels lie within those records…

Hemion Family in 1900 Census

Another big plus was finding out the year of the Sargent family’s emigration to the US: 1870! I discovered this morsel in the original 1900 census record as well (available free of charge through FamilySearch).

So hip hip hooray–another little piece of the family puzzle solved! I would love to hear from any Hemion descendants out there.
