Samuel Hutchinson Eccles 1863 -1900

Hi... Amey was not married to Samuel Hutchinson Eccles. He had a child with her, named Delbert Eccles in 1895. Samuel's religion believed in polygamy at the time (most people still did) but it was illegal. Samuel died in 1900 when Delbert was only 5 years old. My grandfather looked for him the rest of his life but wasn't successful in finding him. I have been in contact with Amey's great great granddaughter and I was able to hear the whole story about Amey's life and her son Delbert. She said Delbert didn't know his dad had died and thought he had been abandoned. (very sad) I hope this was helpful.
