Hunting the Kittelle Line – An Update – Part 2

This post continues with the new information on the Kittelle line.

The Kittell family was not finished dealing with miscreant behavior. John Wesley Kittell married for the first time to Sarah E. Bennett, daughter of William Bennett and M. J. Ferguson Bennett in Davenport, Scott, Iowa on Wednesday, 28 July 188616, just thirteen days after his father’s death.

Fortunately John Kittell did not live to see how his son behaved and considering the times, he had been shamed enough with Anna Lodisca’s unwed pregnancy. Sarah Catherine would see the results of her son’s criminal acts which must have caused her great anguish.

These are transcriptions of articles from The daily Argus/Rock Island Argus.

Police Points17

     Martin Renfro and Geo. Hillerm were

each fined $2 and costs Saturday evening,

by Magistrate Bennett for intoxication.

     Claus Ehmke, having furnished the

$200 bonds to keep the peace, was re-

leased by Justice Haws Saturday.

     Henry Hoffman was fined $5 and costs

by Magistrate Bennett for intoxication,

this morning.

     John Westly Kittell was before Justice

Hawes this morning charged with three

offenses, embezzling 500 bushels of

coal from J. B. Ellis, September 1, last,

forging a receipt purporting to have been

made by the Davenport Pottery com-

pany, for fifty-five bushels of coal, on

July 31 last, and forging a receipt, pur-

porting to have been made by William

Boldt, for fifty-two bushels of coal July

10, last. Kittell has been delivering coal

for Mr. Ellis for some time and has been

taking out coal for certain parties and

selling it in Davenport, bringing back a

forged receipt from the party to whom the

coal was ordered delivered. He confessed,

and plead guilty to all the charges. The

amount of his embezzlement is from $75

to $100. Justice Hawes held him in

bond- of $700, and he went to jail.

Other Court Doings18

     The grand jury met this afternoon pur-

suant to the call from Judge Glenn. It

is understood the cases of Kittelle and

Browning, held for forgery, are to receive

attention.

Court Callings19

     The grand jury returned into court this

morning with the following indictments

and were finally discharged by Judge

Glenn:

     Charles A. Browning, forgery.

     John Westley Kittell, embezzlement

one indictment, forgery two indict

ments.

     Jas. Allen and Robert Lee, robbery.

    The prisoners were brought into court,

and pleas of guilty entered in all cases,

except, at to Lee, who plead not guilty.

The court appointed Col. Curtis to de-

fend Brown, and Mr. Kenworthy to

defend Kittell and Allen. The prisoners

insisted upon their pleas, and Judge

Glenn sentenced Browning to eighteen

months in the penitentiary, Kittell to

three years and Allen to ten years.

     Browning is the man who attempted

to pass a forged order on the Golden

Eagle clothing house. Kittell is the man

who committed embezzlement and for-

gery on J. B. Ellis, and Allen the man,

who with Lee and others, held up farmer

Twelftree near the C., B. & Q. yards

the other day.

     It was shown that Allen and Lee after

robbing their victim and beat him until

he was unconscious, laid him across the

track so that a train being switched down

before he recovered consciousness would

have caused him a frightful death. These

important facts were not covered in the

indictment, however.

     Lee is about as tough looking custo-

mer as one generally meets.

There is no record I have found to date that confirms the prison sentence was served. It is likely he did serve at least part of the sentence. It is certain that his wife of four months was in a sorry position. The next record I found was the record of the birth of a child so John Wesley was around in January and February of 1887.

Event Date: 06 Nov 1887

Gender: Female
Father’s Name: J W Kittell
Mother’s Name: Sarah E Bennett Kittell

 Considering the place of birth, it is likely Sarah E. was staying with family which would indicate that John Wesley was probably in custody or serving his sentence and not providing any income. A hardship Sarah E. was sure to find very difficult.

For this marriage I have found no evidence of divorce or death of Sarah E. Bennett Kittelle. There may be another child born to John Wesley and Sarah E. Bennett Kittelle, a daughter, Irene, possibly born about 1889 or the above may be her birth record, I have not found anything with a name of this child nor have I found a death record.

John Wesley Kittelle was not born in , , Illinois, he was born in Indiana, probably in Swan or Orange Township, Noble, Indiana since his parents were living in the area during the period before and after his birth (see Part 1 – 1860 and 1870 U. S. Censuses1, 2).

The marriage of John Wesley Kittelle and Mary Elizabeth Murphy was likely late in 1893 or early in 1894 as there is the record of a stillborn daughter on Wednesday, 12 Sep 1894 in Chicago, Cook, Illinois with only the last name of the father, which may or may not be this couple.

On Monday, 01 November 1897 at her home Sarah Catherine Corbin Kittelle died at 70 years of age.

There is a newspaper article on Thursday, 03 November 1904 in the Inter Ocean22 about a major disruption in the Kittelle household. This is an OCR transcript (with my corrections in brackets).

Evelyne Jane Kittelle, already a delicate child, evidently weakened by the effort to fight off smallpox and who had already been in the hospital for several weeks, died 02 January 1905 at home at 3654 Hamilton Avenue, Chicago, Cook, Illinois at 8 years and 4 or 5 months of age she was buried in Mount Olivet Catholic Cemetery, Chicago, Cook, Illinois according to the death record (Find A Grave Memorial # 191076150).

John Wesley Kittelle married for the third time after his divorce from Mary Elizabeth Murphy Kittelle which occurred between 1905 and 1908. Between 1908 and 1910 he married Theresa G. Reif, who was born 13 March 1891 in , , Illinois and died in 1983 probably in , , New York. They appear on the 1920 U. S. Census24. John Wesley and Theresa G. were the parents of Dorothy Viola Kittelle who was born 23 November 1910 in , , New York and died 11 July 1997 in , , New York. Dorothy Viola married Louis Thomas Evers, who was born 07 January 1916 and died 08 October 2008 in Mount Kisco, Westchester, New York. There was issue of this marriage living with issue living.

It is now more unlikely that there is any connection to the family lines of Sumner Eli Wetmore Kittelle, although not impossible.

And, just because I made reference to not being able to find a marriage record for Anna Lodisca Kittelle, one turned up. Anna Lodisca is named Lucille A. Kittelle and W. R. Williams is named  Roland W. Williams, son of J. Jay Williams and Mary E. Sharpstein. They married in Prescott, Pierce, Wisconsin on Saturday, 19 May 1888. There is probably more to find on this family.

It is true, there is no end to the researching in genealogy and as more records become available on-line, it will make going over old ground worth the trouble as the record above shows, I was only doing a quick check search on John Kittell when it turned up.
