Narrative

Eli Dyment was born 18 Jan 1861 and baptized 26 May 1861 in O'Leary, P.E.I., the eldest son of Humphrey Dyment Jr. and his second wife Nancy MacDougald (record in PEI Baptismal Index says Elizabeth, but just a couple of weeks earlier, on 5 May 1861, the same minister had baptized a child of Charles Dyment and Elizabeth McDougald, possibly leading to this error). There was an Eli Dyment on 25 acres in Lot 14, but on maps dated 1847 and before 1866 - much to early to be this Eli Dyment. But perhaps Eli was an uncle or cousin. There was no Dyment in Lot 14 in the 1861 census, so perhaps Humphrey's Eli was named for this person. There was a J.Dyment on 10 acres in this area in the 1928 Cummins map of Lot 14.

Eli worked as a painter. He emigrated to the United States in 1884.

In 1892, Eli Dyment, son of Humphrey and Nancy, married Susan Poole, born Aug 1869 in New Brunswick, in Maine. Susan was the daughter of John Thomas Poole and Agnes Matilda Richards from New Brunswick.

They had a son, Charles James, who died as an infant.

In the 1900 census, Eli and Susan had one child, John. They had been married for 8 years, and had had two children, but only one living. On John's birth record in New Hampshire it is indicated that he was their second child.

In 1908, Miss Maude T. Hamner of Malden and Thomas Dyment of Boston were married in New Hampshire at the home of Eli Dyment, the groom's uncle. It's nice to see some proof that Humphrey's two families were close, although separated by many miles.

A Nashua newspaper reported in 1909 that Eli Dyment has been offered an important position in a refrigerator factory at New Brunswick, and is contemplating accepting ...However, he and Susan appeared in the next US census.

In 1910, the family of Ely Diamond (age 36) was living in Nashua, New Hampshire with sons John (14) and Willis (9). A son Henry E., born in October 1900, was not listed with the family in 1900 (census taken June of that year) or 1910, and it is likely that Henry was the same son as Willis. Susan said she had had 2 children, 2 living. Eli and Susan had been married 16 years.

According to the Nashua Telegraph, Eli had a serious accident in 1912, and was off work for almost a year. And there were business problems:
1910: Harris Glnsburg, of this city, has been sued for $1,000 in an action of contract by Eli Dyment, of Nashua, N. H. Dyment sues to recover on a business contract.
Civil Suits Filed: John F. Shaw, of this city, has been sued for (3,0000, In an action of tort, by Eli Dyment, of Nashua, N. H. The Cambridge Trust company is included in the action as trustee. It is alleged that the defendant has converted to his own use certain machinery owned by Dyment. (1914)

John died in 1917 from Addison's Disease; he had not been well for several years before his death according to the enlistment form he filled out for WW1. In 1920 the couple was living with Willis.

In 1928, the local newspaper reported that the Dyment family had moved to Boston, and then to Everett Massachusetts where they had relatives. This could have been Susan's family, since by then most of Thomas' family had moved to Washington State, and his half-sister Elizabeth had died in 1925.

Eli died 7 Mar 1929, in Everett, Middlesex Co, Massachusetts. After Eli's death, Susana returned to Nashua. There seems to have been a fire around 1930, and the house was later rebuilt. It was noted in the paper that Mrs. Eli Dyment had been active in the church in her community.

Their only surviving son, Willis, married Isobel MacLean from Prince Edward Island in 1930.

Susan died 19 September 1933, in Melrose, Middlesex Co, Massachusetts.

There are birth records in New Hampshire for John W. and Henry E., but no birth record for Willis E. There is a death record for John W., but none for Henry E. Although the information on Willis E.'s death certificate could be wrong, it gives his name as Henry and date of birth as October 4 1900. Information came from a funeral home in Massachusetts. The newspaper reports also gave Willis' name as Henry, and his wife as Isabelle McLean.
