Harriett Lucinda Goble

 

Born: 29 Oct 1839, Alexander County, NC
Died:  03 Jul 1911, Catawba County, NC

 

 

                           

Harriett Lucinda Goble was born 29 Oct 1839 in Alexander County to Lewis Carlan Goble and Evi Hefner.

According to the 1850 Catawba County Census, she was living in Catawba County with her parents, Lewis & Evi, as well as her younger siblings.  She was 11 years old at the time.

                             

In the mid 1800's Lucinda Goble was living with her parents on their large farm in Catawba County.  The life of ease and tranquility had diminished with the onset of the Civil War.  The young men were off fighting in the war while the women, children, and old men were left to carry on the best they could.  The farms were lying fallow and food was getting harder to come by.  Supplies were going to the army and civilians were having a hard time.  They had to make do with what they had.

According to the 1860 Catawba County Census, Lucinda is still single and living at home with her parents and other siblings.  The absence of Caroline from this Census suggests that she has died since the last Census.

                             

Lucinda was no different from any other young woman since the beginning of time.  She had dreams of love and romance and the man that she would someday share her life with.  But due to the hardships of war, the beautiful Lucinda fell for the charms of a much older neighbor by the name of Jacob Hedrick.  She became pregnant and gave birth to a child that she named Jacob Hedrick Goble on 22 Oct 1860.

                             

It appears that the father of Jacob Goble was Jacob Hedrick, who was born about 1802.  He would have been about 58 when Jacob was born.  Jacob Hedrick is the son of John Hedrick and Louiza Lovi. 

                             

It does not appear that Jacob Hedrick ever married, and he seems to have been in-and-out of the area.  There are several bastardy cases brought against him through the years, including a case in 1861 with Lucinda Goble and in 1866 with Susan Shepard.

In the 1870 Catawba County Census (below), Jacob Hedrick, age 68, was living with Alfred & Matilda Pope close to the Lewis Goble Family.  Not a lot is known about Jacob Hedrick.  He had no occupation or property.

Lucinda’s child, Jacob Hedrick Goble, was being raised by her father and mother, Lewis & Eve.

                             

Around 1865, Harriett Lucinda Goble married Andrew Jackson Christopher.  Jack was  born 17 Feb 1839.  Lucinda and Jack lived in the Cline Township area, just like her parents.

                             

Lucinda and Jack are listed on the 1880 Catawba County Census.  They have five children.
