Sarah Mabel Glines 1886 – 1937

Sarah Mabel Glines   1886 – 1937

Sarah Mabel Glines was born 14 March 1886 in Bristol, NH the daughter of Charles W Glines.  The person transcribing the vital records failed to name the mother, but a later marriage record identifies her as Hattie C. J. Pickett.  The 1900 census lists Charles and Hattie with four children living in Lempster.  At this point, Hattie has had 8 children, but only five are still living.  Sarah was not part of the household, and is probably the Mabel Glines who was living in Eliot, Maine, with Sylvester and Margaret Paul.  She was listed as a boarder, not a relative, and was attending school.  In this census, she was called Mabel, and she seems to have used both her names, throughout her life. The following information will show her name as it was used in that record.

On 29 July, 1901, in Unity, NH Sarah age 15 married Philip Laclair, age 37, son of Barnabas Laclair and Sarah Ann Hawkins.  He was a laborer, she was a domestic.  Both listed this as their first marriage, but Philip was actually divorced. 

Sarah and Philip had three daughters – Dora M J, born about 1903, Gladys Evelyn born 14 April 1905, in Lebanon, and Daisy M B Laclair, born 10 Jan 1907, also in Lebanon NH. 

The Laclair family was listed in the 1910 census at #10 Barrows, in Lebanon.  Sarah, called Mabel in this record, had had three children, all three still living. Philip worked as an extractor in a woolen mill.  This is the last record I have (so far) for Dora and Daisy.  I have not been able to locate them in the 1920 census with either parent, so don’t know if Philip and Mabel have any descendants from those lines.  

Sarah and Philip divorced, and Philip remarried twice more before dying in 1926.  Sarah married Thomas Joseph Lessard on 24 February 1914 in Laconia, NH.  This was recorded as his first, her second marriage.  They were in the 1920 census in Tilton NH.  Thomas was a general laborer, and Mabel was a laundress working at her home.  They lived near her parents at Lochmere Station, an unincorporated village in the town of Tilton. 

Sarah and Philip’s daughter Gladys married James Robinson in 1923 in Tilton.  Gladys had two daughters – Evelyn born prematurely who died at age one month of bronchitis, and Alice who married at age 15, and died at age 16.  I do not know if Sarah’s granddaughter Alice had any children.  

In 1930, Mabel and Thomas lived in Tilton.  Thomas was a laborer on a road construction crew, and Sarah did not have an occupation listed.  They lived on River Road near Mabel’s brother Leon Glines. 

Mabel S Lessard died 26 November 1937, cause of death was apoplexy, caused by diabetes.  She was buried at Currier cemetery in Belmont NH.  Thomas still lived in Tilton in 1940, working at odd jobs and still living on River Road.  My last record for Thomas is his WII draft registration card.  I do not have his death date.
