Posted by Picasa
Boston Daily Globe, 25 May 1916

According to Edna Warren Mason, on p.311 of her Descendants of Capt. Hugh Mason in America, (New Haven, Conn.:Tuttle, Morehouse & Taylor, 1992):

   "Harlan Roscoe Mason (Capt. Hugh, John, John Jr., Jonas, Ebenezer, Willard, Samuel), son of Samuel and Jennet (Warren) Mason, born Buckfield, Maine, March 19, 1840, died Brockton, Mass., 1921*. Married North Bridgewater, Mass., March 1, 1869, Anna J. Seavey, born Bridgton, Maine, March 3, 1841, died Brockton, August 10, 1925, daughter of Jonathan and Mary (Blake) Seavey.
   Mr. Mason was a last maker, in politics a Republican, in religion a Universalist.
   No children."

Mr. Mason enlisted on July 22, 1864 and was mustered out on November 11th of the same year, according to U.S. Civil War Soldier Records and Profiles, available on

Anna J. Seavey was actually born Julia Anne, the 6th child, and 4th daughter, of my 2nd great grandfather and his first wife. She married Mr. Mason in 1869, after the Civil War had ended
(Massachusetts Marriages, 1841-1915)

The mystery of his daughter, mentioned in the obituary, is still to be solved.
