Ada U Wicksall

As mentioned previously, Ada U Wicksall was born in 1858 or 1859 in Missouri as documented in the 1860 United States Federal Census. In 1870 Ada is listed with the family on the 1870 United States Federal Census in Paw Paw Michigan.

On October 3rd 1878 Ada U Wicksall at the age of 20 marries Albert Harrison Hinckley aged 31 in Pine Grove Michigan with Will Wicksall and Rebbeca Perrin as witnesses. Albert is the son of Asa and Caroline Hinckley of Paw Paw. This was his second marriage. His first was to Sabrina (Bina) Orr which ended on March 13th 1875 when Bina died in childbirth.

The 1880 United States Federal Census shows Ada and Albert Hinckley are living in Columbia Township, Van Buren County Michigan. Ada is "keeping house" and Albert is listed as a farmer. Ada's sister Grace is also there as a boarder.

On February 24th 1881 Vietta Wicksall married Andrew J Becker in Columbia Michigan with Albert Hinckley and William Wicksall as witnesses. Later that year on November 13th, Ada and Albert have a still-born child. This is the last record I have of Ada.

On the 1900 United States Federal Census Albert N(H) Hinckley is in Lynden, Whatcom, Washington. He is listed as a widowed boarder with an occupation of "day laborer". His age is correct and he is listed as being born in Michigan.

In June 1920 Albert gets remarried to Agnes Crabtree in Lynden, Whatcom, Washington.

FamilySearch has a source "Washington Death Certificates, 1907-1960" which lists the death of Albert H Hinkley on January 22nd 1912 in Lynden, Whatcom, Washington. His birth is listed as about 1849 and his father is Asa Hinkley. His Headstone can be found on Find a Grave.
