George H. Maxfield married LUCINDA JANE MOREHOUSE about 1879/80 (1910 census). Lucinda was born at Vermont about 1849/50 (1880 census; 1850/1 New York in 1910 census). She was probably married to GEORGE SCRIBNER before 1870, when George, 25, and Jennie, 20, Scribner appeared in the census (1618:737) at Westford, Vermont, immediately before the household of Daniel, 44, and Susan, 49, Morehouse.
The 1880 census (1343:321B) reported George Maxfield in a Morehouse household at Underhill, Vermont:
|D. W. Morehouse||self||M||M||W||53||VT||carpenter|
|Harriet Morehouse||wife||M||F||W||60||VT||keeping house||VT||Canada|
|L. Jane Maxfield||wife||M||F||W||30||VT||keeping house||VT||VT|
|Milo Scribner||son||S||M||W||7||VT||at home||VT||VT|
Evidently the census taker did not record each persons relationship to the head of the house, but rather each person's relationship to the preceding name.
The 1910 census (1617:1:312B) reported this family on Water Street, Northfield, Washington County, Vermont:
|Maxfield, George H.||head||M||W||58||M1||NY||Unk||Unk||sawyer, lumber|
|Maxfield, Lucinda J.||wife||F||W||59||M2||NY||VT||VT||none|
|Maxfield, Leslie R.||son||M||W||29||S||VT||NY||NY||laborer,
|Andrews, Jennie E.||daughter||F||W||23||M1||VT||NY||NY||merchant,
|Andrews, Alice S.||granddaughter||F||W||1 3/12||S||VT||VT||VT||none|
|Maxfield, Etta May||daughter||F||W||17||S||VT||NY||NY||knitting, hosiery|
|Maxfield, Sanford P.||boarder||M||W||60||M3||NY||Unk||NY||laborer,
The name "Andrews" is written over a line, and extremely difficult to read; it could be in error. The above record also indicated that George and Lucinda had been married 30 years; Lucinda had twelve children, only four of whom were still living. These would be Leslie, Jennie, and Etta May, mentioned here, and Milo by her first marriage. Jennie had been married three years, and had one child, living. Sanford, uncle to George, had been married six years.
George H. Maxfield is named on his son Leslie's draft registration as next of kin. George, therefore, was still living, and in Northfield, in September 1918. I have no further information on George and Lucinda Jane.
George H. Maxfield and his wife Lucinda Jane Morehouse had the following children:
North Main, Northfield, Washington Co., VT age 37; b. Apr 30, 1881
lumbering; Maxfield & Son, North Main, Northfield
relative: George H. Maxfield, Northfield
5' 11" medium build, blue eyes, light brown hair
Lucinda Jane Morehouse, later wife of George H. Maxfield, had the following child by her first husband George Scribner:
