was born in the year 1811 and baptized 2/17/1811. Church records show she was born out of wedlock (bbd… base born daughter) to Sarah Larcomb(e) who was age 14. She was a twin.
Her sister Elizabeth did not survive long and was buried 7/21/1811.
Court records show the father of the twin girls to be James Stevens.
Charlotte’s mother, Sarah was born to William and Martha Larcombe. She was baptized 3/12/1797
and buried 10/3/1816 at the young age of 20, leaving Charlotte an orphan at the age of 5.
It is interesting to note, that Sarah Larcombe and Charlotte’s future husband, Malachi were born within a month of each other and probably knew each other.
The above records are a classic example of why when researching genealogy one should check and double check for accuracy. Two of these documents state that Sarah was buried 10 (October) 1816. The third states burial in November. In light that there are several documents that show Sarah buried in October, we must conclude that the November one is a mistake.
Charlotte is buried next to Malachi in Summit Cemetery
