UNPLACED: Dudley Hallock (1807-1840), Goshen, CT


Could the Hallock participants in the three marriages shown below be siblings and from an earlier Hallock progenitor? Perhaps early deeds might reveal his identity? I an unable to find these Hallocks in the published Hallock Genealogies. Additional information is welcome.

Transcribed from the Barbour Records Collection:

Dudley F, m Ann M BAILEY, b of Goshen, Dec 15, 1830, by Rev George Carrington
Julia, m Junius BALDWIN, b of Goshen, Sept 14, 1828, by Frederick Marsh
Lydia, m William HURD, Apr 5, 1827, by Rev Francis H Case

MOTHER OF DUDLEY (SR) - LYDIA? - 1820 CENSUS - Did she marry William Hurd?

1820 Note there is a Lydia Hallock, head of household in 1820 in Goshen: Herself-26-44 and one son 10-15. The son fits the age of Dudley, b 1807. She does not re-appear in 1830, suggesting she died or remarried.

Could this widow Lydia Hallock be the Lydia in the above marriage to William Hurd, and who is listed in Find-A-Grave in Center Cemetery with the first two generations of Hallocks as:;

Hurd, Lydia, wife of William, died Jan. 26, 1844, age 61 yrs. 9 mos. 6 days.

She fits the age of the Lydia Hallock in 1820 Goshen census and the 1827 marriage would explain why she is not in the 1830 census.

Note, where is Julia Hallock who married Junius Baldwin in the 1820 census? If she is a sister of Dudley, one would expect her in the 1820 census, but there are no girls in the 1820 census with Lydia and Dudley.

This 1840 census record for William Hurd, if it belongs the William Hurd who married Lydia Hallock, shows a young man the age of Dudley and a much younger woman(wife? Step-daughter?) the same age of the 1820 Lydia:

Note that a Junius Baldwin and William Hurd are on the same page of the above referenced 1840 census. Junius Baldwin married Julia Hallock and William Hurd married Lydia Hallock in the marriages listed above.


Dudley (Sr) is found in the 1840 census (age 30-39), wife 20-29, 1 boy 5-9, and 3 boys under 5.

An entry apparently for Dudley's wife Ann (Bailey) is in the censuses for 1850-1880. She also applied for a Civil War Pension on account of the service of her son, Dudley.


Center Cemetery from the Hale Collection:

Hallock, Ann M. Bailey, wife of Dudley F., born Apr. 3, 1811, died May 27, 1894.
Hallock, Caroline L. Austin, wife of Orian J., born May 31, 1836, died Jan. 21, 1907.
Hallock, Dudley F., died Oct. 28, 1840, age 33.
Hallock, Dudley F., son of Dudley F. & Ann M., died Feb. 6, 1863, age 25. Civil War.
Hallock, H. Gav, born June 1, 1875, died Apr. 14, 1912.
(Note - this is prob Gay H-4, Orion J-3, Dudley-2, Unknown-1 Hallock).
Hallock, Hubie, son of Orion & Caroline, died Sept. 9, 1866, age 7 wks.
Hallock, Orian J., born Sept. 9, 1831, died Aug. 17, 1918.
Hallock, Orson, child of Dudley & Ann H., died June 9, 1841, age 5 yrs, 7 mos.
Hallock, Orson, child of Dudley & Ann M., died June 20, 1835, age 1 yr. 6 mos.

Orian/Orion and Asahel appear in various censuses (separately) later in the 1800s in Goshen. Orion is shown as born nine months after the Dudley Hallock / Ann Bailey marriage. Asahel is shown at age 10 with Ann Hallock, his presumed mother. Orion does not appear with Ann in any cenuses after names for individuals were used in 1850 - unless the 1860 Orion, age 25 is him - and if that entry is him, it is a second entry for him, as he is also listed with his wife, Caroline, in the 1860 census.

There is one fact that is troubling in treating them as brothers. Orion/Orian consistently showed in all censuses 1880 forward that his parents were born NY CT. Asahel showed in all censuses 1880 forward that his parents were born CT CT. Did one brother mis-remember where their father was born? Orian would have only been 9 and Asahel an infant when their father died. Or are they not brothers at all? Further info from a will or real estate records would be helpful. (Note that Ann showed she owned real estate in 1870 and so there should be real estate deeds from her, either after 1870 as a sale or transfer - possibly to heirs, or after 1894, when she died.)

Accounting for the four brothers: Note Orian was born nine months after the marriage date of his parents. The 1840 census showed 1 boy 5-9, which fits Orian. There were three boys under 5. These could be Dudley, Asahel, and the third would be the second boy named Orson, who died 1841. So, at this point all of those four boys seem accounted for. A problem then comes with the boy named Orson /Orian in the 1860 census - 25 years old. Since 28 year old Orian with wife Caroline is also in the 1860 census, was he listed twice? Or is this another person, or was Orian not a son of Dudley at all - as is suggested by his parents birthplaces as NY CT?



There is a Dudley Humphrey in the 1840 census in Goshen on the same page with Junius Baldwin and William Hurd.

Then, in the 1840 census next door to Dudley Hallock are: Eliathan/Eliaken and Obediah Humphrey; and on the same page Mary, Harlow, and Henry Humphrey

Are there any blood connections going on between the Hallocks and the Humphreys??
