Biography of Charles William Scribner

Charles William Scribner was the third son of Aaron Scribner and Rhoda Carll, born 1830 in Brighton, Somerset County, Maine. Minerva was the oldest daughter of Frederick G. Hetchler, Aaron's next-door-neighbor. She was born (May 30 [? - per Muriel Steele Smith]) 1841, probably in Elba, Genesee County, New York. Charles is listed in his father's family group as a farmer in Michigan in the 1850 census. Thus, from that information Charles must have come to Michigan with his family between 1842 and 1850 from Ohio. Charles and Minerva were married December 3, 1859, in Utica, Macomb County, Michigan. Charles was a farmer and a carpenter. Charles appears with wife Minerva in the 1860 census in Michigan, Macomb County, Sterling Township, page 916, dwelling number 720, family number 667. In this census, it indicates that Charles was a farmer with real estate valued at $1100 and personal property valued at $200. His birthplace was listed as Maine, and Minerva's was listed as New York. Charles was thus a farmer and carpenter who "married the girl next door."

Charles W. Scribner volunteered in Utica, Michigan, and was mustered in to Company F, 22nd Regiment of the Michigan Infantry as a private on January 21, 1864 at Pontiac, Michigan for a 3-year enlistment. He came from the 5th Michigan congressional district in Macomb County, Sterling Township. At that time he was 33 years old, with blue eyes, auburn hair, standing 5' 8 " tall. He died during the war shortly after enlistment, and the final statement indicates his birthplace as "Somersett, Maine." The circumstances of Charles' death are very unfortunate. Per an affidavit contained in the pension application file of his wife Minerva (#52-206), after enlistment, he proceeded to Grand Rapids where measles were prevailing and he took the measles at camp. He nevertheless proceeded as far as Indianapolis, then took worse and had to be taken to the hospital. He died in the hospital in Indianapolis of this illness. He was never able to join his Company. He died on February 28, 1864, barely 30 days after his muster. He apparently died in a hospital in Indianapolis, Indiana of "lung congestion" or "consumption of the lungs."

The pension record for the application of Minerva (#52-206) makes the relationship of Charles' children clear: Charles is listed as the father of Charles W. Scribner, born on 11/5/1860, and Thomas J., born on 5/28/1862. The children's application (#138086) was filed by a person named Robert Jean, who was appointed as their Guardian by a probate judge on 12/26/1865; Robert Jean was listed as a resident of Clinton (in Macomb County, Michigan), although the children are listed as residing with their mother. [Robert Jean may have been the father-in-law for Enoch, since his wife is reputedly Sarah Jean, the daughter of Robert Jean; the Robert Jean referred to could also have been the husband of Catherine Norton, who was first cousin to Peter Steele; in fact, it is possible that these two Robert Jeans are related -- and perhaps even the same individual?] The pension record also contains evidence of the marriage of Minerva and Peter Steele, evidence of the marriage of Charles and Minerva, physician attestations for the live births for both minor sons, and evidence of the death along with a description of the circumstances of the death of Charles.

The pension record certificate of marriage evidenced that Charles W. Scribner of Sterling, Macomb County, Michigan (age 29) married Minerva A. Hetsler of Sterling, Macomb County, Michigan (age 18) on December 3, 1859, in Utica, Macomb County, Michigan. Present as witnesses were J.L. Hetsler of Sterling and Mary M. Hetsler, also of Sterling. A death certification for Charles W. is contained in the widow's pension application file. The minor pension application also contains declarations in support of authenticity by "Thomas P. Scribner" and "Catherine Scribner" from Macomb County, residents of Sterling, who were claimed to be personal acquaintences of the deceased Charles. These are Charles' brother Thomas and Thomas' wife Catherine, who was also the older sister of Peter Steele.

Documentation of the location of Charles' burial has not been found; one source states he was buried in Indiana, but no location was specified; from contents of the Pension File on Civil War Service for Peter Aaron Steele, we can infer that Charles must have been buried in Michigan sometime after his memorial service, which was held on 3 March 1864 in Detroit. Most likely, Charles is buried in a national cemetery somewhere in the Detroit, Michigan area, with civil war-era soldiers.

Biography of Thomas P. Scribner

In 1860, Thomas and Catherine were living in Clinton, outside Detroit, where he was a farm laborer. By 1870, they had moved to Shiawassee Township in Shiawassee County (near the center of the state) where he operated a farm. Per the 1870 census, Thomas is 37 years old and has a wife Catherine who is 29 years old. He is listed as a farmer, and his wife as a housekeeper. One child, Cora, is listed as age 7 and Millie age 5 at home. All were born in Michigan. In 1880, they were in Detroit (116 Woodbridge Street), where he worked as a carpenter. In 1900, he was operating a corner grocery store in Detroit, at 581 McClellan Avenue. They had 5 children, of whom 3 were living in 1900.
