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 and was called "Lucinda".

 

According to the 1850 Catawba County Census, Lucinda was living in Catawba County with her parents, Lewis & Evi, as well as her younger siblings (David, John, Martha, Mary and Caroline).  She was 11 years old at the time.

By the 1860'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 at home 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 sometime after 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 B. Hedrick.  She became pregnant and gave birth to a child that she named Jacob Hedrick Goble on 22 Oct 1860.

It appears that Jacob B. Hedrick, who was born about 1802.  He would have been about 58 when Jacob Hedrick Goble was born.  Jacob Hedrick was 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 over the years.  There were several bastardy cases brought against him through the years, including a case in 1861 with Lucinda Goble and again in 1866 with Susan Shepard.

The 1870 census shows Jacob Hedrick, age 68, living in Catawba County, North Carolina,  with Alfred & Matilda Pope close to the Lewis Carlan Goble Family.  The census indicates that Jacob had "no occupation or property".

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

 

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

 

Lucinda had at least ten children according to the 1900 and 1910 Catawba County Census records. We know about the seven she had with Jack Christopher (Harriett J., John C., Adolphus M., Martha E., Mary Louvanda, Quintus, George Washington) and the one she had with Jacob B. Hedrick (Jacob Hedrick Goble) but there is no record of the other two.

Only their eldest daughter, Harriett  (age 44) was still living with her parents and was working as a "spooler" at a cotton mill.
