    Census  1884  Dayton Twp, Newaygo Co, Michigan Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • 1884 Michigan State Census p. 82
      Juliet is listed age 53, mother-in-law, married (Wooster is not in the census - probably traveling as he was a traveling salesman), and living in the household of Adolph, her son. The census indicates she was born in New York, but "don't know" was the entry for the places of her parents' births. She is entered as "wash woman" and in Michigan 5 years.

      There are several discrepancies here:
      1) Juliet would have been 49 years old in 1884, not 53.
      2) She in other census years knew the birthplace of her parents.
      3) She had been in Michigan 28 years, not 5.
      4) Juliet was listed as mother-in-law.

      Probable explanation:
      The census taker had probably been speaking to Liddia. This would explain the lack of knowledge about Juliet's age. Juliet's status as "mother-in-law" (relation to head of household who was Adolph) supports this theory. Liddia had not known the BRYANTs more than at most 5 years. That is the approximate time the BRYANT's moved from Berrien County to Newaygo County and could very likely be the exact time. We know they were there in 1880.

      The only other explanation is that this was a different Juliet and indeed Liddia's mother. This is doubtful, as Liddia has in several census' indicated the birthplace of her parents as "unknown." If this Juliet were her mother, she would likely know where she was born. Also, Juliet's name is Bryant in the census.

      One other comment. In this entry, the place of birth entries for parents of Adolph and Liddia seem to be reversed. Adolph's parents listed as being born in "unknown" places and Liddia's parents listed as born in New York. Again, in every other census, Liddia lists those locations as unknown and this further proves, I think, the census taker was confused as to the answers given.

    • Cerebral HemorrhagOn Juliette's death record, her parents are listed as Frank Bryant (b. NY) and Charity Campbell (b. NY). The name Frank was probably an error and may have been the name of the informant as Juliette had a grandson named Frank Bryant.
    Buried  26 Dec 1924  Maple Grove Cemetery, Fremont, Newaygo Co, Michigan Find all individuals with events at this location 
    Notes 
    • 1880 Census indicates that Juliette had heart disease. She listed that both her parents were born in New York. In 1900 she lists both her parents born in Connecticut.

      26 Sep 1916, Juliette used a mailing address at 219 Bostwick NE, Grand Rapids according to a document in the Widows Pension file. She gives her former address as 23 Lyon NE, Grand Rapids. Juliette deposes she was born 17 Nov 1834 at Conklin, Broome Co, NY. Her widow's pension was increased from $8.00 a month to $30.00 a month in 1920.

      According to her obituary in the Fremont Times-Indicator 31 Dec, 1924, she was a member of the Disciple Church of Fremont. The Funeral service was held Friday, 26 Dec 1924, at the Disciple Church at 10 AM., Rev. Jay N. Booth officiating.
