    REBECCA HICKS and her sister, Mary Elizabeth, married Winslow brothers. Rebecca and Charles married in 1845 and Mary Elizabeth and Ebenezer married in 1847. The brothers were two of the children of Beulah Keene and Carpenter Winslow, who had come to the Punxsutawney area from Massachusetts/ Maine about 1818, with their two eldest sons. They had ten more children after they arrived in Punxsy. The Winslows (Charles line is not a direct decendent) and Keenes were descendants of the Pilgrims in Plymouth Colony. Eventually, Beulah and several of her children made their way to Benezette, where the men engaged in the lumbering and railroad industry. Rebecca and Charles were the parents of eight children, all of whom were raised in Benezette. Each of their children had several children of their own, and the tradition of large families continued. Rebecca was widowed in 1869, after 24 years of marriage. At the time, her youngest daughter, Harriet was only nine years old. In her later years, Rebecca made her home with Hattie and her husband, John Tuttle. The copy of her will indicates that she left her home in Benezette to the Tuttles.
