Hoping Soon to See you Both, Kimber Letter 22
Jane Eliza Seely writes from Troy, Pennsylvania to her sister Abbie in New Hampton, Orange County, New York in Kimber Letter 22.
Jane and Abbie’s father, 4th Great Grandfather Benjamin Kimber, is visiting “Old Orange” along with Abbie. Third Great-Grandaunt Abbie and her parents recently moved to Pennsylvania.
Aunt Jane Eliza addressed her letter to New Hampton located in the Town of Wawayanda. My 3rd Great Grandmother Charity (Kimber) Clark lived in that area. Another Kimber sister, Phebe (Kimber) Decker, also resided in Orange County in the Town of Minisink. I’m sure Aunt Abbie and Great Grandfather Benjamin spent time with their families.
Jane shares her news with Abbie and sounds pleased that her daughter, Isabell, could take over the washing. Husband Moses Seely has been keeping up with his chores; even the weather’s been good.
