Harriet Minette Tillotson and Archibald Stockton


Harriet "Hattie" Minette Tillotson was born in Duplain, Clinton County, Michigan on October 5, 1864. She was the daughter of Franklin James Tillotson and Jane Ann Sexton. Hattie married Archibald Carlisle Stockton late in life. Archibald was a widower who had previously been married to Elizabeth Jane Swan, daughter of Thomas Galley and Mary Jane Jordan (or Jordon). Elizabeth was a widow who had been previously married to Samuel Sumner Swan, son of John Wilson Swan and Margaret Beasley Moore. Archibald Carlisle Stockton was born November 25, 1871 (or November 20) in Milks Grove, Iroquois County, Illinois to Joseph S. Stockton and Annie Updike, who had moved to Illinois from Princeton, New Jersey.

Archibald and Elizabeth Swan had two children.

Hattie actually reared Clifford and Lester since Elizabeth died in 1902 when they were very young. Hattie and Archibald married in Chicago, Cook County, Illinois on June 30, 1904.

Archibald and Hattie lived in Crete, Will County, Illinois, and later in Wheaton, Dupage County, Illinois. Hattie died of a pleurisy at Cook County Hospital in Chicago, Illinois on March 30, 1923. My grandmother Eva Tillotson Burns was in attendance when she died and provided the information for Hattie's death certificate. Hattie was waked at the home of Archibald's brother Raymond Stockton. Hattie is buried in Wheaton cemetery.

Archibald later married a woman named Pauline. She died in 1951. Archibald Stockton died in 1956.
