I am researching a Jennie R. Hale.
Married to Harlan P. Hale. I believed she died 7 Oct 1914.
I believe Jennie is actually my grandmother's niece, Jeanie S. Reid,
born in Monymusk, Aberdeen, Scotland on 21 April 1886.
My grandmother's name was Jessie Reid Park.
My interest in Jennie R. Hale is to confirm she is actually my grandmother's niece.
My father, Harlan Park, and his sister Maime Park were both orphaned,
at the ages of 2 and 7 years of age, respectfully, sometime between 1907 and 1910 to Waterford, Vermont.
I found them in the 1910 and 1920 US Census living in Waterford, Vermont.
The wife of Harlan P. Hale was this Jennie R. Hale.
I have never been able to determine what happened to my grandparents, Alexander & Jessie Park.
They came to New York City, New York in 1900 with Jessie Reid Park's niece and nephew.
Coincidently, the Jennie Hale, according to the 1910 US Census has a very similar first name
and was born in Scotland in the same year as Jessie's niece.
I have never been able to confirm how my father at the age of 2 or 3 moved from New York to Waterford, Vermont.
It seems plausible that Jessie's niece married Harlan Hale and moved her niece and nephew (my father) to Waterford.
If anyone knows anything about Harlan P. and Jennie Hale it would be appreciated.

Thank You, Clinton Park
