Clytie R. Worcester, b. 1871 at Columbia Falls, Maine; m. Una Worcester (name changed from William Dawson)

Clytie R. Worcester was born in Columbia Falls, Maine on 22 April 1871, the daughter of Samuel Cummings Worcester and his wife Rosina (Reynolds) Worcester.  


Her paternal grandparents were Clement Fernald Worcester and wife Tamson Willey (Cummings) Worcester.   Her maternal grandparents were Ezekiel and Rosanah W. Robinson.


In a few places online, I found that some have interpreted Clytie as Clinton R. Worcester; however, I found Clytie's birth record showing her to be a female, and Census data bears that out.  Perhaps she had a brother Clinton, maybe even a twin?


In 1888, Clytie signed a page in the autograph book of her friend Berniece E. Allen of Centerville, Maine.



I found Clytie in the 1900 US Census, working as a servant in a large household or boarding house in Putnam, Connecticut.  I couldn't find her again until the 1930 Census, when she was living in Cambridge, Massachusetts, married to Una Worcester, a blacksmith.  Apparently Una, born around 1886 in Lancashire, England, had changed his name from William Dawson.  in this Census, Clytie was working as what I'm interpreting to be a professional lecturer.  


When Una Worcester filled out his World War II Draft Registration card, he was living in Amherst, Massachusetts and gave the name of Mrs. Margaret Worcester as his contact.  Whether this meant that Clytie had died by then or she and Una had divorced, I don't know.  I haven't yet found Clytie's date of death.


If you have any corrections, additions or insights, especially about Una Worcester/William Dawson, regarding the information provided above or in the family tree below, please leave a comment or contact Todd House directly.  Thanks!
