Families

    Family of Charles A Hixon and Selina May North
Married Husband Charles A Hixon
   
Event Date Place Description Sources
Marriage about 1912      
General

I didn't find a marriage record in the Rhode Island records at familysearch.

Charles was boarding with his father in the 1912 Woonsocket City Directory, but he owned the home at 207 Highland St in the 1913 Directory. Directories usually reflect the situation in the previous year.

Likewise Selina is listed as a teacher in 1912, boarding at 282 Park Ave, but is not listed in 1913. The spouses were not included with the heads of the household in these directories.

In 1913 John North is listed as boarding at 207 Highland St.

Narrative

Selina (North) Hixon was not teaching in 1920, but was in 1935.
They were still there in 1935, and her husband was living there in 1940. Selina died on a weekday in Woonsocket, not North Smithfield. Did she die at work, or in a hospital?
