MORTON

I have been searching since 1979 for parents/siblings of Ithamar D. MORTON, b. 1821-23 in Maine.  He was married to Mahala Elizabeth RUSSELL on 24 Aug 1845 in Brighton, Maine, by Stephen RUSSELL.  Their children:  Pauline and Hermann b. between 1845-47; Charles Edgar and Edwin b. 18 Jun 1851 in Old Town; Henry Allston b. 24 Nov 1856; Ella Elizabeth and Cora Maria b. 22 Jun 1859 in New Brunswick, Canada; and Herbert Ithamar b. 20 Sep 1861.  They were running a boarding home in Old Town when Ithamar enlisted in the Civil War.  K.I.A. 19 May 1964 Pension Papers only list wife and children.  Can anyone help me?

MOODY

I have some letters found in a box that was bought at an auction.  The letters are addressed to Dana B. MOODY and his wife, Jennie, dated 1923-24, with one letter to Dana dated 1915, which was the year Dana B. MOODY married Jennie A. BARKER.  Are there any relatives of Dana or Jennie who would like to have the letters?  They apparently lived in Troy after they married, and spent winters in Florida.

DELANO

I have some very limited information (and I am very new to this), but I thought the Society members might be able to help.  Thank you in advance for whatever assistance you might be able to provide.  Here is what I do know:

1)  My great-great-grandfather, John DELANO, was b. 13 Oct 1845 in Bangor, Maine.

2) At the age of 13 (approx 1858) he moved with his parents (names unknown) and five brothers (Hatsil, Silas) to Wisconsin.

3)   I know other DELANO's of the same approximate age were in Bangor at that time -- William F. and Cephres -- as they are buried in a cemetery there.  However, I do not know their relationship to John.  If you know of any remaining DELANO's in the area (I noted cemetery entries as late as the 1990s) who are familiar with the DELANO family history, I would appreciate you putting me in contact with them.

I also have a note that said my great-great-grandfather served with his father and brother, Hatsil, in the Civil War.  In checking the Wisconsin Volunteer rosters for DELANOs out of Rantoul, Wisconsin (where I am told they settled), I find that the only three DELANO volunteers were John, Hatsil and Abram.  Therefore, I am lead to believe that my great-great-great-grandfather's name was prob. Abram DELANO if that will be of any help.

BLANCHARD

My great-great-grandmother was Carter BLANCHARD who lived in Exeter, Maine, according to the census data in 1870 and 1880, with wife Hannah.  I have located a map of residents of Exeter in 1875 and found a C. BLANCHARD on a shown property.  His dau. Sarah Jane BLANCHARD m. Edwin WILLARD, a close neighbor according to that map, in 1858.  They had 2 children.  Sarah d. 1874 and was buried in the Tibbetts Cemetery.  A son, Daniel, m. Mary SIMPSON and lived in Dexter until he d. in 1942.  I am not certain where my great-grandfather, James Milton BLANCHARD, was born although he lists Maine as his birthplace.  He was b. 1844, and may have been born, or lived in, the Exeter area prior to 1870 when he is found in California.  It would be very helpful if someone can direct me to records that are not available on the Internet.  Actually, any information on this family would be appreciated!

BRIGGS

I am looking for any information on my great-grandfather, George Ulmer BRIGGS, b. abt. 1842, possibly in Bangor, Maine.  Extensive web searches have returned only one George Ulmer BRIGGS, his son, my great uncle.  George BRIGGS is believed to have run away from home at the age of 14, about 1856.  He was in Utah Territory by 1873 when he m. Elizabeth OAKLEY.  He was enumerated as George BRIGGS (from Maine), cattle dealer, in the 1880 census.  He is believed to have moved to Wyoming alone in 1885, then to Colorado about 1890, dying in Denver in 1908.  He named his children Charles Quincy, George Ulmer, Frank W., Catherine and William.  None of those names occur in his wife's family, so might be a clue to Maine relatives.  Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

KNOWLEN / BOOBER

My ancestors Thomas KNOWLEN and his wife, Martha BOOBER, initially raised a family in Levant, Maine.  He purchased land in 1800 on the Corinth / Levant line.  Their son John was b. 1802, but Levant vital records didn't exist then.  Where should I search then for birth records of he and his siblings and also a marriage record for Thomas and Martha?  They were neighbors of a Benjamin BOOBER.  It has been proved that Martha is neither a daughter or a sister of Benjamin's.  My speculation is that she is his niece or cousin.  Prior to coming back to Maine, the Benjamin BOOBER family resided in Maugerville, Sunbury, New Brunswick.  Benjamin was b. in Georgetown, Sagadahoc Co., Maine, and his wife Abigail CAMPBELL was b. in New Brunswick.  Benjamin and his family appear in the 1790 census of Conduskeag Plantation, Maine.

NEWCOMB, Delon  

I am assisting my local historical society in York, Maine, with research into American Civil War Veterans.  My task is to research citizens of York who served in the military.  It is quite apparent from what I have found in the US census that Delon NEWCOMB, b. early 1840's, was from Carmel, Maine.  However one reference to his civil war record indicates a connection to York.  Another indicates that he used the name John PRATT as an alias.  Is this name in anyone's database and do you have any information that would help me clarify his apparent connection to York and his use of an alias?  If you also have knowledge as to where he is buried, that would also be of interest in this research.

BAILEY

Seeking info on William C. BAILEY, b. 1836 in Milford.  He was the son of Charles C. BAILEY (1805-1859) and Mary J. RING (1807-1857), who lived in and ran a tavern in Milford.  William's siblings include Catherine "Katie" D. (m. Nathaniel C. DEERING), Lucretia (m. Nathaniel C. DEERING after her sister Catherine's death), Charles R. (d. in the Civil War in Dec 1862 in Chesapeake, Virginia), Mary Eveline, Allen Woodbury (my great-grandfather), and Caroline B.  William was given guardianship over Charles R. BAILEY and Allen Woodbury BAILEY after their father died in 1859.  They would have been 16 and 12 at the time and William would have been 23.  I would love to be able to find out what happened to him and see if there are any living descendants.

CHANEY / CHENEY / CHANAY

Looking for parents/ancestors of my 3rd great grandfather, Jonathan CHANEY, said to be b. 22 Jul 1783 in Orrington, Maine.  He m. Elizabeth NICKERSON, dau. of Warren NICKERSON and Anna ALDEN, on 22 Jun 1812 in Orrington, Maine (they were m. by the well-known Methodist preacher, Enoch MUDGE).  Elizabeth is an ALDEN descendant (Mayflower).  She's well documented, but Jonathan is always mentioned as her spouse with no information about him.  My research shows Jonathan to have been an itinerant Methodist preacher on the Penobscot Circuit.  About 1817 he and his family left Maine, with a group of other settlers for Ohio, taking an infant daughter, Martha, with them.  Martha's middle name was LOVEJOY, making me wonder if Jonathan's mother or grandmother was a LOVEJOY, as that was a common practice.  Please contact me if you have further information about this family; it would be very much appreciated.

CREASY / CREASEY / CRESSEY

Searching for my CREASY / CREASEY / CRESSEY ancestors from Maine.  Family stories say we are from Bangor, Maine.  Specifically, I am looking for the parents of Tristam CREASY / CRESSEY of Orono, Maine.  The early Penobscot Marriage books show that my great-great-grandparents, Tristam CREASY of Orono and Mary MAYO of Hampden, Maine, were married by Ezekiel ROBINSON on 5 Mar 1836.  They are listed in the 1850 Maine census as Tristram CRESSEY.  Their children's birth records in Maine are listed as Mary Malvina, Sarah Jean, William Neal and Martin Greeley (my great-grandfather).  The MAYO Genealogy records state that Mary MAYO, b. 18 Sep 1809, was the daughter of Howes MAYO and that she married a William or Trustum CREASEY and lived in Wisconsin for a while.  I have found in my search that Mary and Tristam married in Maine, then moved to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (1840 census) where their first four children were born prior to moving back to Maine (1850 census) where their fifth child Henry was born.  Then sometime prior to 1860 they moved to Oasis, Wisconsin, where they lived until 1883 when they both died, Mary in May and Tristam in December, where they are both buried in North Dearfield Cemetery.  According to Tristam's headstone and the census records, he was b. Feb 1813.  The 1880 census for Oasis, Wisconsin, says T.T. (Tristam) CREASY's father was born in Maine, and his mother in Scotland.  This is the only lead I have to identify his parents.  Any help in my search for Tristam T. CREASY's parents of Maine will be greatly appreciated.

SOULE / TABIE

I am trying to find information on the Gaius SOULE family. Gaius born 1803, Rome, Maine; Lavinia TOBIE born 1809 Montville, Maine, and their daughter(?) Helen Augusta M. SOULE b. 1829.  Gaius and Lavinia's publishment and marriage were 1828/1829 - he of Liberty, she of Montville. Helen  was of Montville when she married Cleveland BACHELDER in 1845. I believe the family lived with Asa SOULE in 1830 in Garland. Gaius is mentioned in Garland History as being there in 1820's with father Asa and brothers. The ages of males/females in Asa's household match Asa, Ruth, his wife, Gaius, Lavinia, and Helen. Gaius may have died early before 1838 as he is not mentioned in Asa's will. He may be buried in a Penobscot cemetery Are there any other sources of Garland history that may be accessed? Thank you.

YOUNG / SWAN / COBB  

We have researched the genealogy of my great-great-grandmother Zillah (YOUNG) SWAN/COBB.  Her death certificate shows that she was born in Maine in 1810, and that her parents were Ebenezer YOUNG and Ruth YOUNG.  The Maine census records indicate that her father may have been Ebenezer SWAN Jr. of Hampden, Maine, and that her mother may have been Ruth DYER of Eastham, Maine.  The connection is made by noting that this Ebenezer YOUNG is the only man in the 1800/1810 Maine census who is the correct age and that his family added two children between 1800 and 1810.  The census records also indicate that Ebenezer SWAN m. Ruth DYER in Eastham, Maine, in 1795.  This Ebenezer's parents were living in Eastham in the 1800 census.  In addition, we have found marriage intentions for Zillah to Ebenezer YOUNG Jr. at Hampden is strong, but not definitive as we have not found a birth record for Zillah YOUNG.  Therefore we are looking for additional documentation; considering a search of churches in the area for baptismal records.  Can someone help with our search or suggest other approaches.

Louise CALL in Bangor 1861.  At the time he lived in Milford and she lived in Bradley.  By 1880 they were living in Orono.  This is the direct line and I'm sure of it.  Prior to that everything is fuzzy.  Even suggestions on what to try next would be welcome.  (Neither of these is one of the George A.

My great-great-grandfather Calvin COWING, d. in Glenburn 18 Oct 1865, at the age of 84 (this was recorded in the top margin of a page in the town records, so I surmise it was entered at a later date).  His wife, Deborah (COOMBS) COWING subsequently lived with their son Benjamin COWAN/COWING and apparently died sometime between the census of 1870 and 1880, but I did not find a record of death in town records.  The daughter-in-law, Matilda COWAN/COWING d. 1852 and granddaughter Rachel COWING d. 1864, both buried in Lake View Cemetery, Glenburn, but I have been unable to find any gravestone or cemetery record for either Calvin or Deborah COWING.  Does anyone have any suggestions as to where I might find a record of Deborah's death or both of their burial places?  For example, would there be any church or funeral home records for the Glenburn area in the 1865-1880 timeframe?

My wife's grandfather was Alphonso Wilson HORNE/HORN, b. 29 Mar 1849 in Old Town, Maine.  We have been unable to locate his birth certificate.  He may have been the son of Henry and Mahitable HORN.  They had a daughter, Marietta, and a son, Alphonso.  According to our info, Marietta was b. 24 Apr 1855.  Alphonso married at least 3 times: their names being Genjuard JOHNSTON, Nancy (Last Name Unknown), and Georgia Alma LITTLEFIELD.  He married Georgia in Somerville, Massachusetts.  In Maine, Alphonso was a cooper.  He moved to the state of Washington where he became a steamboat captain.  We have most of the family information from his marriage to Georgia, but would appreciate any confirmation of his ancestry.

SAGAWINIA 

It was said that "sagawinia" came from Orono, Maine, was b. between 1890-1915.  Could he have come from a Native American town near there?  My blood grandfather died in 1953, Gloucester, Massachusetts.  There was no info at all about him or his family when he was buried.  There are many rumors about him that I did not put on my website - that he was Italian or Portuguese or Native American.  I do not care what race-I just want to know.  There is only one picture I have of him on my website.  I have researched City, State, Federal, Mormon, DMV, SS - all to no avail.  Would love to hear from anyone that might have information on my blood grandfather.  Please see my website:  LeRoysagawinia.
