    • Research notes for Hiram & Heman Austin, late additions to my children Francis & Eleanor Austin tree. Have not yet verified beyond doubt that Heman and Hiram were their children.

      Main reason for adding are as follows:

      Heman born in Vermont in 1827
      In census records cites both parents as born in Vermont, which is correct for Francis. In other children of Francis & Eleanor, ‘Father’s birthplace’ is usually cited as Vermont, but ‘Mother’s birthplace’ varies between Vermont, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts.

      Hiram born in Pennsylvania 1831

      Cites ‘Father’s birthplace’ and ‘Mother’s birthplace’ as Vermont.
      In 1880 census, Hiram has a “Frank Austin” living with his family. Frank appears to be the same Frank who was son of Freeman Whitten Austin.
      Freeman Austin was also living and farming at some time in Rough & Ready, where Hiram & Heman both live & farm . This is not a particularly populated area in the late 19th century (nor today).

      Francis & Eleanor Austin moved quite a bit, and went from Vermont to New York to Indiana, Illinois and Kansas. Is it possible Hiram was born on the way west in Pennsylvania?

    Heman Austin Mysterious Shot
    Heman Austin Mysterious Shot
    From Los Angeles Herald, 09 Apr 1881:?

    Mysterious Shot
    Grass Valley, April .8—Nicholas Permewer, a native of Cornwall, England, and a gardener by occupation, aged about 65, was shot dead in an upper hallway of tbe Pacific Hotel this morning. There was no witness to the affair, although the shot was heard by a number of lodgers in tbe house, some of whom also heard Permewer say, "She has shot me." The shooting seems to have occurred near the door of a room occupied by Mrs. Heman Austin. In her was found a shotgun with 1 barrel recently discharged. Mrs. Austin was arrested, but the Coroner's Jury found that deceased came to his death at the hands of a person unknown.
