Application filed May 20, 1893- Serial No. 474.879. (No model.)
Be it known that I, HERBERT W. MARKHAM, of Syracuse, in the county of Onondaga, in the State of New York, have invented new and useful Improvements in Plate-Lifters, of which the following, taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, is a full, clear, and exact description.
This invention relates to the class of implements which are employed for removing pie-plates from the oven and for manipulating other analogous hot plates. And the invention consists in the novel construction and combination of the component parts of the plate-lifter as hereinafter fully described and specifically set forth in the claim.
In 1900 Herbert, born Dec 1854 is single, a real estate agent. With him are brother Ernest R, May 1866, sisters Vivian June 1875 and Marion October 1877, and niece Winifred Nov 1884. In 1910 Syracuse, Herbert is a real estate agent, still single, and his aunt Sarah, 68, divorced, is living with him.
One tree says that he married Lillian (Barrett) (Mason) (Thurston) in 1911.
Herbert's widow, Lilian M. Markham, died 1945 - born in Fulton, New York, she had resided in Syracuse the past 35 years.
Herbert - no grave marker per # 148519760, died in 1933 and is buried in Syracuse.
ANOTHER POSSIBLE - a Methodist minister in New York ANOTHER - remote, but this one with a Colorado connection - the Markham family in Loveland from England - had a cousin Herbert in England who was born 1866 - Herbert, who isn't in U.S. records.
