HALL: Where might I find vital records for a person described as born in Brooks about 1810-1812?  From the census it appears that the Brooks area was listed as Washington, Hancock, Maine on the 1810 census.  I'm interested in Shadrack Hall who arrived in this area from Buckfield about 1802 and may be the father of Simeon Hall, who was born in Brooks about 1810-12.

HANDSPIKER:  Have been trying to locate my great-grandmother's grave for years.  I have been told by two great aunts she was buried in Searsmont. Her death record, however, did not divulge in which cemetery she was buried, and it is QUITE likely there is no stone to mark her grave.  Any suggestions on how I might find that information?  Seems to town clerk was unable to locate a separate burial record (lost? never completed?)  She died in 1929, so one would suppose there'd have been an undertaker in the area who may or may not still be in business (under same or different name) who MIGHT have a record of burial??  Here's her info:
Samantha "Mattie" (nee Purdy) Handspiker
b. Bear River, NS, 05-Dec-1882
d. Searsmont, ME, 11-Jan-1929
wife of Jeremiah Ellis Handspiker (m. 20-Jun-1906, Landsdowne, Bear River, NS. 
One would THINK, as her burial was less than 100 years ago, that SOME record of WHERE must have survived???  As her widower, Jeremiah, later remarried to Mabel Fenner, and HE was buried in York, ME, where another unmarked grave was only recently "marked" in a family ceremony... Mabel died much later in CT, and Lord knows WHERE she's buried (was not a family favorite from what I've heard).   Both Aunts "swear" that their mother was buried in Searsmont... I can only hope their memories are still solid!
ANY help with determining her grave's location would be so appreciated!  I'd LIKE to have another marker (nearly identical to my great-grandfather's) place upon HER grave, so others might remember, as well.

HARRIMAN: I am researching, genealogically and biographically, some sailing captains, and ship owners starting with Hezekiah Harriman. I believe Hezekiah's brother owned a sailing ship named Ivanhoe and it sailed to the port of San Francisco a few times until a Hurricane got it off Point Flaherty.
Aboard this ship was a young mariner, Charles F. Herriman, Hezekiah's son, and Charles ended up staying in the Bay Area. While here he captained the Alameda to Australia and, as captain, he brought the steamship Sonoma from the East to the West coast, he captained this ship for a number of years.
Another Herriman, was Hezekiah Edgar, a son of Hezekiah above, who captained ships to Australia and he settled in Australia.
I would appreciate any information anyone has on these individuals. In later years, Charles F. Herriman was quite well known in the Bay Area; he served as an inspector of ship in his later years.
Ralph Harriman, these Harrimans are my cousins.

The primary Harrimans I am interested in is Hezekiah and his descendants who were mariners or sea captains with the home port of Stockton, Maine as in the following:
  1870 fed. census for Stockton, Waldo Co., ME, page 348, fam. 282.
      Harriman, Hezekiah, age 49, b. (1821) in ME, R.E. $10,000, p.v. $200, MASTER MARINER;
      Harriman, Sarah, age 41, b. (1829) in MO, housekeeping;
      Harriman, Henry W., age 21, b. (1844) in AR, mariner;
      Harriman, Albert F., age 19, b. (1851) in AR, mariner;
      Harriman, Charles F., age 16, b. (1854) in MI, mariner;
      Harriman, Margaret A., age 11, b. (1859) in ME;
      Harriman, Hezekiah, age 4/12, b. (1870) in ME.

Hezakiah was a sea ship captain on the East Coast. His two sons, after 1870, Henry W. and Albert F, became captains and commanded ships on the East Coast. Albert F. sailed ships to Australia and eventually settled there.
Charles F. Harriman grew up in Stockton, trained as a mariner on the Ivanhoe (owned by his uncle, Hezekiah, Sr.). This ship sailed around the horn to the port of San Francisco a number of times. Charles, settled in Oakland and he captained the ships Alamada and Sonoma from this port. I have the West Coast information.
This above is just one family in Waldo Co. with ship captains. A Francis M. Harriman of Prospect, was a master mariner and Dearborn Harriman of Prospect, a ship master. All these Harrimans mentioned and myself, are related and have the same immigrant ancestor, Leonard Harriman, of Rowley, MA.
Basically, I'm seeking any information on these individuals you might have. On the West Coast, we even had a whaling ship named Emma Herriman, captained by James Warder.

HARRIMAN: I am searching for any information on the Harriman/Herriman/Horriman families of Prospect, Waldo Co., Maine.  Almost every male, save but a few, in this family was listed as master sailor or sailor in the census records.  In particular, I am trying to locate records of the Joshua Harriman line.  I believe he was born circa 1805.  Reply to: Patricia (Boyer) Dickman 7 Oct 04

HARRIS:  I am trying to acquire any information on Captain Joseph Harris of Prospect Maine (Circa 1800).   I have located a Joseph Harris in Mt.

HARVEST:  I would like to add my Harvest ancestry here. My great-great grandfather was Johan Adams Harvest. The little I know about him and his family is as follows: "Johan Adams Harvest was born ca 1756, probably in Germany. Several years ago, a contact in N. H.. found his Revolutionary War Pension records from the National Archives in Washington, D.C. giving the only information that I have. His file # is S35386. He supposedly moved to Swanville, Waldo County, Maine from Providence, R. I. I believe that he is the Jno. A. Harbet in the !820 Census of Swanville, [then in Hancock County], Me. with 1 male, aged 45, 1 male aged 16-18, 2 males under 10; 1 female, 45; and 1 female 16-25. In 1830 he was in Waldo Plantation, [now in Waldo County], Maine, with 1 male 15-20 yrs.; 1 male 70-80 yrs.; and 1 female 40-50 yrs. In the Town Records of Harlem [now China, Kennebec County, Maine] and of Vassalboro, Kennebec County, Me., John Adams Harvest married 5 Jan. 1797 to Rachel Dow. It is not known by me at this time who her parents were, but it has been suggested that her father was Benjamin Dow. On an early map of Fairfax [now Albion, Kennebec County, Maine], J. Harvest had Lot # 10, which touched on the western shore of Pickerel Pond. It can be assumed that Rachel (Dow) Harvest died before 1818, for in the Washington [now Knox County], Maine records, John A. Harvest married 2) 1 Dec. 1818 in Washington, by James Rust, Jr. to Anna Meservy of Palermo, [now in Waldo County], Maine. She was born circa 1778. Johan [or John] Adams Harvest enlisted in the Spring of 1779 A.D. in the State of 'New Hampshire' in the Company commanded by Captain Wait in the Regiment of Colonel Reed. John A. Harvest continued to serve in said Corps until 1783 when he was discharged from the said service at West Point, in the State of New York. His name is not on the roll of any State but New Hampshire. John Adam "Garfest" in his pension affidavit stated: "I further swear that I have no real nor personal property, except my necessary bedding and apparel and I am a common laborer, but unable to earn my living by reason of age, infirmity and blindness. I have a wife aged forty-five but sickly. [She would have been the female in the 1830 Census]. I have three children, underage, Marier eleven years age; Thomas eighteen years age - Autumn aged twenty, but all my children have left me and I am dependent upon charity for my existence. Signed Johan Adams 'Garfest' [or something very similar], eighteenth day of Nov. A.D. 1823:. He would have been about sixty-seven years of age at that time. On 21 July 1835, Anna, wife of John Adams Harvest applied in a sworn statement to obtain a widow's pension or grant of land. She stated that John Adams Harvest enlisted early in the War, that he resided in Waldoboro, Maine at the time of his enlistment, that he was a Pensioner of the United States as a Revolutionary soldier and that he died the 17th of June 1835 in Waldo Plantation in the County of Waldo and State of Maine. She stated that John had been an inhabitant of Waldo Plantation for twenty-five years before his decease. Anna Harvest's application for pension land was rejected. The Belfast, Maine newspaper, 'The Republican Journal' of 25 June 1835 printed the death of John A Harvest, Revolutionary Soldier, aged 82 years. This would have made his birth year circa 1765. Anna Harvest married 2) by Manasseh Sleeper, Esq., Justice of the Peace to Thomas Keating, recorded in Belfast, Waldo County, Maine. The children of Johan Adams and Rachel (Dow) Harvest were: ? Christopher Harvest, who married 14 Dec. 1819 Joanna Hill, both of Belmont, Maine [found in the Belfast, Me. History]; and the three mentioned by John in his Pension records: Autumn Harvest, born circa 1803; Thomas Harvest, born circa 1805; and Maria Louise Harvest, born circa 1813, who married [Certificate issued 9 Nov. 1828 in Belfast, Me.] to Joseph Burns Lermond of Washington, Knox County, Maine. Maria (Harvest) and Joseph Burns Lermond, [called Burns Lermond] were my great-grandparents. They are almost phantoms, known by name only. They appear in the Washington, Maine Census records, but do not show up in Town Records, newspaper or cemetery records, so do not know when and where they died. Two of their sons who died young are buried in the Moody-Hannan Cemetery on Route 220 in South Liberty, Maine. I do have a very, very old photo of 'Burns' Lermond and his son, my great-grandfather, George Washington Lermond, who was born in 1843. In the photo, George is a child of about ten years of age, showing how old the photo is. I would love any information on any of the names mentioned above. Johan Adams Harvest is one of those names we have on a Pedigree chart, and have no actual information about. Thank God for Pension records which gives me an inkling of Johan's life. Somewhere I got the impression that he might have been a 'Hessian'.   Reply to: Isabel Morse Maresh  30 Nov 07

HAYNES: Who was Sarah C. Haynes?
Aaron Gould and Miss Sarah C. Haynes, "both of Corinth", were married in Corinth 1833, per Corinth VRs on film from LDS. (These were my great-grandparents). The only Haynes family in Corinth in 1830 census was Spencer Haynes "of Swanville in the county of Hancock" who had married Miss Hannah Pearson of Corinth June 24, 1825, too late to be Sarah's father. He was b. 1799, probably in Searsport, to  Simeon Haynes b. 1758 in Exeter NH, and Wealthy Spencer.

Haynes of Bangor had  m. Miriam Pearson in Corinth in 1824, but in 1830 census he had in his household a female 15-20 as well as another his own age, likely his wife.  He was b. in 1797 (he gave his age as 83 in 1880 census) so likely Spencer's brother.  So likely Sarah was their relative, and these brothers were finding a husband for her, much as Nathaniel had found a wife for Spencer.
Now let's look back twenty-or-so years:
Simeon Haines of Prospect & Sarah Cochran, m. 30 Sep 1812.  LDS film #0010573

(Cochran) Haines b.1794, d. 1812 of Belfast ME  LDS film #1149519
from Greg Bemus:   (dead URL)
ID: I98 Name: Sarah COCHRAN Sex: F Birth: 1794 in of Belfast, Waldo, MAINE Death: 1812 in of Belfast, Waldo, MAINE LDS Baptism: 14 SEP 1870 Temple: EHOUS Endowment: 20 APR 1923 Temple: SLAKE Sealing Child: 21 NOV 1924 Temple: SLAKE Note: Taken from records of Harriet S. Speirs
The Swanville 1820 census lists Simeon Haynes 0-2-(0)2-0-1   1-0-1-0-1. This would be Simeon and Wealthy (Spencer) who married in Durham, NH 15 July 1781. Simeon who married Sarah Cochrane was their oldest son, b. 1791.
Notice that there is a female b. 1810-1820 who was not listed in the 1818 census (Wealthy and Simeon's last recorded child, John, was born in 1805).
A descendant of Simeon Jr. writes that at the early age of 26, he went west, married Jane Cockins on Dec 4, 1817 in Washington Co., PA; moved on to Bridgeville, OH where he died 16 Sep 1854. His wife survived to 1873.  IGI
Alternative hypotheses:
Could Simeon and Wealthy have had a another child - possible Sarah? Wealthy was born in 1764, so she would have been aged 48 in 1812.
Or could this be a child born to Simeon Jr. and Sarah Cochrane who m. 1812, mother Sarah died in childbirth?
Either way, she would be brought up by Simeon and Wealthy and the extended family, and be the right age for marrying in 1833.
Anyone with knowledge of other sources which I might search to resolve this dilemma (or of errors in what I have said above) please let me hear from you. Reply to: Stewart Rowe  17 Apr 06

HIGGINS: Searching for marriage of Yates Higgins and his wife Mehitable C., whose maiden name I don't know.
was born 1799 in Standish, Cumberland County, ME. He was the son of Elkanah and Jemima (Cole) Higgins
1830 finds him married and in Liberty, Waldo County, ME. 
1840 Yates Higgins was in Thorndike, Waldo County, ME
1850 Yates & Mehitable Higgins were in Lincolnville, Waldo County, with children Hellen  and Louis Yates Higgins living with them. Also, another boy whose relationship is unclear by the name of Norman L. D. Low. He later went by Louis L. LowYates was a minister on the 1850 census. I believe they were associated with the Christian Advent Church.
Living next door in 1850 and near are two married daughters:  Mehitable & Daniel Rust Mansfield. Daniel is a minister and later Mehitable became one, too. Another daughter, Irene was living not far with her husband, Daniel Willard.
By 1860 Yates and family had migrated to Bad Axe County, Wisconson and later to Linn County, Missouri where Yates died after November 1870. Mehitable then moved to Allen County, Kansas where she died in 1875. She lived in Allen County with L. L. Low who is with them on earlier census records.  Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am unsure where to write for marriage records for these families.  Reply to:  Nancy J. Willis

HILL: I am looking for the parents of, and the county of origin for, Capt. David H. Hill  (b. abt. 1840) and his brother, Capt. John S. Hill. Both were sea captains and both were born in Maine, but were in San Francisco as late as 1852 (then on to Seattle). According to the death certificate of Capt. David H.

HILL:  I am looking for more information about William and Sally Hill, especially if they are connected to Rebecca (Hill) Files. Rebecca, 22, is married to Joseph Phinney Files in 1850 and living in Thorndike, Waldo County, Maine. She may have been born in Belfast, Waldo County, Maine.
Here are my clues that may connect Rebecca to the family below:
I found William, 54, a farmer and Sally, 53, Hill in the 1850 Census (p. 2) for Thorndike, Waldo County, Maine.
Living with them in 1850 are the following:
John S. Hill 24, teacher
Living in the same household (#20)
Albert Files 31, Farmer
Sarah Files 32
Sarah F. Files 6
Charles T. Files 4

HILLMAN:  I am attempting to find the the relationship between the Hillman family and the Waldron family.  More specifically, I am researching one Mary Ann Hillman.  I can find nothing to connect these two families or to positively connect her to the family of Henry Hillman other than census reports.   Mary Ann Hillman is my wife's great grandmother, born March of 1859, Frankfort, Waldo, ME.  She later married a John S. Aiken of Bucksport, Hancock, ME.
1.) Census, 1860: enumerates a Mary A. Hillman, 1 year of age, born ME., living with a family of Nathanial Waldron, age 24, and Hannah Waldron, age 24.    A Charles Waldron, age 2 also listed, in Frankfort Mills [ed. aka Frankfort, Waldo, ME.]
1a.) Note: A Henry Hillman, age 55, wife, Clarinda, age 44,  family also in Frankfort Mills w/seven children inclusive of Mehitable, age 12 and an Arnold age 25, and George Hillman, age 17. (See 1870 census and Mary A. age 11).
2.) 1870 Census: Mary A. Hillman age 11, now living with Henry age 65, and Clarinda Hillman, age, 51.  Both born in Maine, no Rhode Island connection.
2a.) Note: Now there is only one child living with Henry and Clarinda.  This is Mary A. Hillman age 11.  (She seems  be no longer associated with the Waldron family).
I have two questions!!
1.) Question: Why would Mary A. Hillman, age 1 be living w/Waldon(s) in 1860?
2.) Question: Could there have been something between Waldron and one of the Hillman males, Arnold, age 25 or George age 17?  Probably not as there were no older Waldron women, except for Hannah age 24, spouse of Nathanial Waldron 1860 census and they had been married at least 2 years, as they had a child age 2.  Reply to:  Det.

HOLBROOK, George L., b. May 1873 in Maine, died sometime before 1920.  He was married to a Josie M ??? (b. Dec 1873).  My fiancée is descended through their daughter Iris V. Holbrook (4 Feb 1900 - 18 May 1966).  Info on Josie M. ??? would be equally appreciated, as the tombstone inscriptions I found only confused me as she was buried in Knox in a Stephenson plot, though I couldn't find any records of a Josie Stephenson that would match her age in the census.  Reply to: Jody Roberts  15 Oct 2005

HOPKINS: Seeking info. concerning  Elkanah Hopkins and/or Thankful Hopkins.  Both were living on Cape Cod, in or near Eastham, around 1798.  According to The Mayflower Descendent, XIII, No 4, p. 108, James Young and Thankful, (Hopkins) sold their farm in Eastham, the deed was signed before I. Sparrow, JP in Barnstable County, by James and by Thankful, before F. L. B. Goodwin, JP, in Frankfort, in the summer of 1798.  I am assuming, from the deed, that Thankful is the daughter, niece of the two Hopkins men, and since I am unable to trace James' line back beyond him, I am hoping to come from the other direction, via Thankful.

HOPKINS:  I am attempting to straighten out the mess I have regarding the children of Captain Smith Hopkins and his wife Susan Dwelley who lived in Frankfort.  There seems to be a problem with my late mother's Mayflower Society paperwork, and from piecing together the names she had from different family group sheets, I think I can understand why.  It now looks to me like she has grandchildren of Smith and Susan listed as their children.  Things don't match up very well from looking at the census reports at Ancestry.com for all the Hopkins family members in Frankfort.  My mother's information came from Hopkins Family Marriage Records by William M. Clemens, 1916; Frank L. Hopkins (former town clerk of Frankfort) personal journals; Lillian A. Parker (former town clerk of Frankfort) personal records; Joseph M. Dwelle of Lake City, MN: and a lady named Hazel Hammond.  In order for me to apply for membership with Mayflower I must clear up the problems concerning my mother's papers that at first were accepted but were later rejected.  What a mess!  Any help anyone can give on this problem would be greatly appreciated.  Kathleen Parker-Hopkins  31 Jan 08

HOPKINS:  Am looking for birth of Theophilus Hopkins as son of Simeon Hopkins and his wife Mehitable Hardy Hopkins.  He was born June 25, 1825...perhaps Searsmont, Belfast, Camden...his oldest bro. was born in Bangor in 1835 but since Simeon's mother died on Vinalhaven in 1848 and he did not move to Wisconsin until 1850...I think he may have been in Waldo or Knox Co....at least when Theophilus was born.  Some records show that Simeon was married in Searsmont. Theophilus was married Dec 15, 1850...and shortly after moved to Wisconsin.  I do not know where Mary Francis Farnham (Varnum) was from.. her obit only said she was the oldest of 12--- a daughter of Simeon Farnham of Brooksville, Maine and his wife, Mary Stover of Castine, Maine.  I know he was Simeon Hopkins' son...but do not have a birth record or marriage record.  Ann Hopkins 9 Jun 05

He fell trying to escape. One record says it was on the Miramiche River in New Brunswick, Canada. A letter says it was in the Moosehead Lake, Maine region." [from notes - no documented source found yet]. He married Roxana Caroline Hatch in Knox, Waldo Co., Maine in 1812. Roxana was born 16 March 1795 in Marshfield, Massachusetts.

This is a little long and I apologize for the length, but hopefully some will find it useful. I have much more information on my Hutchins line and am willing to provide my sources for those interested. Reply to: Clayton D. Hutchins  21 July 01.

HUTCHINS:  Looking for additional information on this family:
John Hutchins was born in Mount Vernon, Kennebec, Maine on 20 Apr 1792. He was a son of Henry and Rhoda (Peterson) Hutchings. His parents moved to Knox, Hancock County, [now Waldo County], Maine about 1803. John married Roxana Caroline Hatch in Knox in 1812 with the ceremony performed by Elder Ebenezer Hamblin. Roxana was born 16 March 1795 in Marshfield, Massachusetts and was a daughter of Prince Hatch and Hannah Phillips.

John Hutchins appears to have purchased one hundred acres of land from his father in 1813 soon after his marriage to Roxanna, but then sold it back to his father two years later. It is not yet known where he and his family lived from 1815 until his death in 1818.

John Hutchins apparently died in April 1818 of a logging accident, leaving his wife and three small children. However, the only evidence found other than Fred Hutchins research notes which did not list sources, is Roxana's marriage to George Swett of Knox, Maine in March 1820.
Roxana apparently died on 30 Apr 1825 in Knox, Maine, at 30 years of age and the children appear to have been raised by grandparents, Henry and Rhoda Hutchings.
John Hutchins and Roxana Caroline Hatch had at least the following children:
  1. Caroline Hutchins was born in Knox, Maine on 30 Jul 1813.
  2. Hannah Hutchins was born in Knox, Maine on 21 Jun 1815.
  3. John Hutchins was born in Knox, Maine on 24 Feb 1818.

Does anyone have further information on this family?

ISLESBORO RESEARCH:  Need advice / help re researching some of my lines on Islesboro. I'm aware of the ferry schedule, but need information about the days and hours that the historical society is open for research and hopefully some advice/help on the following lines, at least some of whom I understand were on Islesboro before later generations went to Crotch Island and Deer Isle where they married into the ROBBINS on Deer Isle.

The lines I am researching are:

AREY comes down from Isaac Arey and wife Mary Crosby thru their son, Crosby Arey, who I believe married Annie Philbrick or Philbrook possibly b abt 1800-1815. 

The brick wall here is with Annie Philbrick / Philbrook. I've nothing on her parents. Isaac and Mary (Crosby) Arey are Rev. War period. My line is thru Crosby and Annie's dau Azuba "Ruby" Arey who married  Ira  Newman Mer(r)ithew and they were the parents of my G gm Adavilla Frances Mer(r)ithew, 1855 - 1920  who 1m James Marsh, d 1877 and 2m Edson Leander Morse. The Morses lived in Stonington.

COOMBS  comes in with Sarah Coombs who married Benjamin Mer(r)ithew and they were the parents of  Ira Newman Mer(r)ithew  (see above)  who m

Azuba Arey. I have Benjamin's parents as Roger Mer(r)ithew and Rhoda Mallory.

I have that Sarah Coombs is the dau of one of the numerous Anthony's in the Coombs line that married Anna Stinson. Anthony and Anna are late Rev. War period.  I have this Anthony Coombs, d 1843 and Anna Stinson Coombs,  d. 1846,  both on Vinalhaven.  I have Anthony's parents as Anthony Coombs 1715 - 1815 who was m to  Ruth who died 1826,  but I don't have any sources and don't know whether this is correct or not. Is this line right, partially right, or all mixed up ?  Do I have the wrong Anthony ?  Am I missing a generation(s) ?

STINSON is the other brick wall here as I have nothing on the parents of

Anna ( Stinson Coombs who d 1846.

Any help on any of these lines and advice re the best utilization of the materials at the historical society will be most gratefully appreciated. Reply to: Janice R. Freeman 31 Aug 04

JACOBS, Alger & Thankful: I'm trying to find Alger (below), I have found him on the 1850 census, have been told he's on the 1830 census but have never found him there, and he and Thankful make a guest appearance on the vital statistics (death) of their son James (my line). I am looking for Alger's resting place, though I'm starting to think he feels me coming and skips elsewhere. The dates below for Alger are harvested from a wall hanging in the Stockton Springs historical society and are suspect, he departs the scene pre-1864 as Thankfull and her son, James purchase property then.
Alger (Aulguar, Alguar, or Algar) Jacobs (b. about 7 Sept 1797 - d. about 1 June 1854); wife Thankful Huntoon (b. about 5 Sept 1802 - D 13 Oct 1870); marr. about 25 Dec 1820. Their children are/were Charles, Joseph, Lucy, Robert, ***James and Mary. Reply to: Kathleen 31 May 00

JACKSON:  I came across the following, taken from 'The Biographical Review of Sagadahoc, Lincoln, Knox and Waldo Counties - Maine' 1897, in a biographical sketch about Robie Frye Jackson, a son of William and Sylvia (Jackson) Jackson, who was a prominent farmer in the town of Montville, Waldo County, Maine: "William Jackson was a native of Paris, Maine. He settled in Montville in young manhood, when the place was principally a wilderness. He bought a tract of land, upon which he built a log house; and in course of time, as the result of his energy and perseverance, he owned a valuable farm, with fine substantial buildings. His death occurred at the age of sixty years. He was an able and industrious farmer, a man of careful judgment, and took an important part in town councils. For many years he was a member of the Baptist church. His wife, Sylvia Jackson, became the mother of fourteen children, but three of whom are living, namely: Harriet, Robie F., the subject of this sketch, and Lucy. Six sons established their residence in the Western States when young men, and all won a good reputation for honesty, uprightness, and energy, and became substantial property owners." [It was written about Robie Frye Jackson, the subject of the sketch, that he owned six, large prosperous farms in the town of Montville. Quite a feat from his father coming to an unsettled wilderness!] But the facts that jumped out at me was that six [6] of the sons had gone to the Western States. I would like to know more about the descendants of the six, who I believe are: Lincoln L. Jackson, born 4 June 1826 in Montville, Me.; Benjamin Franklin [called Franklin] Jackson born 18 June 1828 in Montville, Me., Perhaps Josiah H., born 12 Jan. 1821, and died 20 Feb. 1871 in Montville. William Jackson, Jr. born 12 Jan. 1813, married 14 Oct. 1833 to Hannah Melvin, of whom there is little in the Census records in this area. Perhaps they went West.

LOW:  Seeking information relevant to the origins of Sewall C.

Littlefield around 1832.  Elizabeth died 14 Mar 14, 1893 at the age of 80 years, 7 months, which means she was likely born in August of 1812.  Her death record giver her parents as John Littlefield and Hannah Rowell, both of Winterport.  I am hoping that Sewall's death record (1882) would provide his parents' names.  I have my suspicions as to his parentage, but would appreciate any information that could confirm or disconfirm my suspicions as to the lineage of Sewall C.

McDONALD:  I am descended from Mathew and Betsy McDonald, through their son, Andrew Richard McDonald.   I have a great deal on his descendants but have tried to limit this to his immediate family.
I am too far from Maine to do local research and would very much appreciate any information anyone there could share about the McDonalds' ancestry.
Although Mathew McDonald was born in Maine, he first shows up (online) in the 1830 census:

1830 Census, Monroe, Waldo County, Maine, p. 381 (I suspect, comparing Mathew and Betsy's ages and census info, that he was married twice, and this 1830 census reflects the first marriage; the oldest child on the 1860 census, Maria, would not have been born on this census, and wife Betsy would have been 26)
McDonald, Mathew, Males:  0010001000 - one male 10-15, one male 40-50
Females: 03200010, three females 5-10, 2 females 10-15, one female 40-50

He doesn't show up in 1840 or 1850, but I suspect the online census indexes are incomplete.

1860 July 12 Census, Winterport, Waldo County, Maine, p. 54,   Series: M653  Roll: 453   Page: 932

McKEAN:  I am looking for info. on my paternal Great grandparents, Nathaniel Patterson McKean and Mary McGlothin.  He was born in Belfast, Waldo Co., Maine in 1802. Nathaniel's parents were: Capt. Abner Graham McKeen and Sarah (Sally) PattersonSally, born 1779, died in Belfast, 1813.  Abner, born in 1774, place unknown, died in 1820, place unknown. Abner's father was Samuel McKeen, Jr. , and his mother was Janet (Jane) Graham.   What I am most concerned with is Nathaniel Patterson's family , especially his daughter, Mary Catherine McKean, who married Thomas Andrew Pettijohn ( sometimes Pettyjohn or Pettajohn).  I would like to determine where she died and is buried.  She was born in Iowa , abt. 1852.

McKEEN: Would be grateful for any information about my g-grandmother, Mary Elizabeth McKeen, born 1861-1865, (Belfast?), Waldo Co, ME, daughter of Charles McKeen and Eliza Sanborn.  The family migrated--apparently during the years after her birth (but could have been earlier)--to Edgar Co, IL.  There she married my g-grandfather, Jedidiah (George??) Burnham, direct descendant of Thomas Burnham, one of three brothers who founded the prominent New England Burnham family after their uncle's ship, The Angel Gabriel, was shipwrecked off Pemaquid Point, ME, during the great hurricane of 1635. According to the tradition I've heard, Mary Elizabeth McKeen came from Scotland with her family--including 3-4 brawny brothers.  (Think we have a photo of them.)  But entry in 1880 Illinois Census gives birthplace of her parents--and her own, as I recall--as Maine.)  So the family must have come from Scotland--or possibly No Ireland--at an earlier date.  I find signs of McKeens in Belfast (or at least Waldo) during the earlier part of 1800s, if not earlier.  And I'm told "the Sanborns" were an "old Yankee" family. Would appreciate any info on either family that might lead me to something--as well as data on my specific forebears. Reply to: Brian 16 Apr 02

George & Edna were married March 16, 1902, both were residences of Troy, Waldo, Maine at the time of marriage.
I have them in the 1910 Census: Maine, Waldo, Troy
Town Enumeration District # 265; Pg 244 A; Sheet 3A; Enumerated on April 20, 1910 by Arnold W. Dodge
Lines 4 & Line 18; Dwelling # 39; Family # 43
Meservie, George H.; Head; male; white; age 30; 1st marriage; married 7 years; born in Maine; both parents born Maine; Speaks English; Farmer; General Farm; Own Account; was not out of work on April 15th; Out of work 0 weeks during census year; can read & write; Own Free; Farm; Farm # 36.
Meservie, Edna; Wife (of line #4); female; white; age 25; 1st marriage; married 7 years; had 1 child; 0 children living; born Maine; both parents born Maine; Speaks English; can read & write.
So I suspect the child was born and died in the vicinity of Troy, Waldo, Maine.

MERSEVE or MERSERVEY:  I am searching for information on John Merserve or Merservey who died 24 Apr 1865 in Monroe.  He was 90 years old.  I am not sure if he lived there in 1860.  He was married to Eunice Myrick Bither the widow of Stephen Bither.  They were married in Albion, Maine on 1 Dec 1816.  I am looking for an obituary or any records that may be available on John Meserve.

MOODY:  Any information at all on the life of Amos Moody.  Contrary to popular belief he is not of the Newbury, Mass. Moody clan.  His line gets switched at this point to a Joshua Moody which is convenient but not proved.  He supposedly lived for 100 years in and around Waldo county.  All researchers I know have him as born August 12, 1747 and dying 30 January 1847 in Nobleboro.  He married Elizabeth Chamberlain, in 1798 in Liberty. Other than the marriage record, his birth or death has not been proved by anyone with hard proof and there are lot's of people out here pursuing what I think is a wrong line.  I think Amos's are derived from a Clement Moody from New Hampshire whose family members migrated to Maine independent of the Newbury Moody'sReply to: Pete Martin  4 Dec 06

MOODY: Searching for the parents and ancestry of Chandler Moody, Born: about 1783, probably in New Hampshire, married Susanna Field in Prospect, Maine on May 26, 1808.

MOODY: am looking for the parents of David Moody and his wife, Ann Maria Pine Deering Jenkins. David was born about 1805 in Maine and his wife, Ann Maria Pine Deering Jenkins was born about 1810 in Maine. They were married about 1830 or so. They and their children are found in the 1850, 1860 and 1870 Censuses in Monroe Town, Waldo County, Maine. The censuses are appended below.
I suspect the middle names of Pine and Deering are family names of Ann's parents or grandparents. There are many Moody, Pine, Deering and Jenkins families in Maine in the early 1800's and late 1700's.

MORLEY: Looking for a death record of my 4x great grandfather, Philip Morey (also spelled Mowry). He died sometime between 1850 and 1860 in Northport. He was married to a "Jane". They show up in the 1850 census; Philip was 86 years old in 1850. The 1860 census only shows Jane (still in Northport). Given Philip was 86 in 1850, he probably died in the earlier part of the 1850's. I would like to know who were listed as his parents (Philip was born in Ireland about 1763).

MORRIS:  I am researching my husband's g.grandfather, Wm.E.Morris or William Ephraim Morris whom I have been told is listed in the 1860 census for Belfast, Waldo Co., Maine .  I am also trying to establish his birth date which is anywhere from 1854 to 1864. He was supposedly born in Worcester Co., Massachuetts in 1861. Can anyone find a Wm. E. Morris in the 1860 census & what does it say about his family.
The reason that I am having so much trouble, I think, is that there are at least 4 Wm.E. Morris' & I think the one listed in Belfast(?) is the father of the one I am researching right now. The father was married to L. Tibbetts.  They were actually from the Boston, Mass. area (I think). My husband's great grandfather is Wm. E. Morris & was with Custer at Little Big Horn. I have a copy of his obit. & photo of the headstone in New York & his death of 11-26-1933. He was married to Sarah Angela Kench of Brooksville, Hancock County, Maine, she being the daughter of John T. Kench & Abigail Cousins. Sarah was born Oct. 22, 1857.  Sarah & William were married in Manhattan, N.Y. in 1879. I am trying to establish the correct birth date for this William & for his parents......also Wm.E.Morris (1831 ?) & mother, Lavina (Lavinia) Tibbetts (Tibbitts) (Tarbox-first marriage). My husband's GRANDFATHER(also Wm.E.Morris-dob 1880)was married to Edith M. Combes(1889).Reply to: Barbara Morris 30 Jan 05

MORSE: I am researching my husband's surname. His grandfather, George Everett Morse was born in 1915, and was raised by his grandfather, George Washington Morse in Belfast, Brooks or surrounding area. Reply to:  Michelle Morse 24 May 02

MORSE: Fact:  John P. (or O.) Morse married Abby Y(oung) Cottrell (rill) on 23 Oct 1847 in Belfast, Waldo, Maine.   They had Frances b./d. in 1850 and John B. b./d. in 1851.  This is pretty well verified in Belfast books/records and they are all buried under one stone in the Grove Cemetery in Belfast.  They then had Fannie A. (or Abbie F.) b. on 11 Feb1854 in Belfast. (pretty sure on that).
I thought I had followed him to Chelsea, Mass where he died in  1882 but now I see (from History of Belfast book) that this John P. Morse's widow "Bertha" then died in Chelsea in 1897.   This may be a second wife as I can't verify Abbie's death.  Did they leave Belfast?  Why doesn't Belfast have Fannie's birth in their town records?  (I have copies of pages from books sent to me by Belfast). 
I can't find appropriate names on 1850 or 1860 census for this John Morse.   1850 Belfast Census has John Morse with wife Sarah and  4 or 6/12 month old Frances, this census was taken August 5, 1850.   Can anyone give me suggestions on where to go next or what to do?  
Reply to:  Janet  4 Dec 02

MORSE:  I am seeking any information on a John P. Morse married to Abbie Y. Cottrell in Belfast 1847.  I am pretty sure he was born in Belfast or at least spent early childhood there.  His parents may have come from NH.  Reply to: Janet Buchanan 16 Jul 02

MORSE/ WEBB:  New to this list and from Melbourne Australia.  My enquiry relates to Martha Ellen Morse who married Henry Webb at Montville in August 1858.  The couple moved to Rockland where Henry died in August 1863. They might have had two children, Clara Ellen and William Riley however Martha later married William J. Brown and had more children. It seems Martha died in Belfast in 1906.  I'm attempting to establish the names of Martha's parents, her father might have been Adam, her mother I don't know, also confirmation of the names of her children with Henry Webb and later with William J Brown - and any other information that might be available relating to this family.  Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

MORTON / GILKEY:  I read on the internet that the marriage date for Thomas Morton and Sylvina Gilkey was November 29, 1792 in Maine (probably Hancock County). My Rebecca Morton was born about June 20, 1800 in Maine.
The daughter, Rebecca Morton married George Washington Parks in Northport on Feb 13, 1815. I was wondering if there are any publications out there that would list the Morton families in Northport at that time. I believe that several may have migrated to Ohio.
One more question. In many of my sources, Northport appears to be in Hancock County; however, today it seems to be in Waldo County. Did the borders change? If so, would I need to post this on the Hancock County board? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

MUDGETT: To the best of my knowledge, my great grandfather, Wilson Mudgett, fought in the Civil War as a member of Co. G, 17th Maine Infantry, enlisting on February 21, 1865 as a substitute for a William F. Longfellow.  The enlistment took place in Belfast, Maine.  He mustered out on May 13, 1865 in Portland.  According to his enlistment papers, he was born in Maine.
I've found additional records for Andrew W. Mudgett, J. Wilson Mudgett and William Mudgett, who may be relatives, but I have no proof.
So far, I haven't been able to find much additional information about him, or his family, either before his enlistment or after his discharge.  The only thing I know is that he was probably in Minneapolis on October 21, 1884 (the year my grandmother was born).  Sixteen years later, my grandmother shows up in Fargo, ND, with my great grandmother listed as a widow.  Can anyone share additional information on Wilson Mudgett, i.e. parents, siblings and/or children?  Mark Stephens 28 Feb 06 

MURCH:  I am trying to find the descendants of granite cutters, stone workers and quarry workers from Maine. Also looking for descendants of Thompson Henry Murch, born 1838 in Hampden ME

I am doing a project for some of the historical societies in New England on the Honorable Mr. T. H. Murch and his union. I have a group called NEW ENGLAND QUARRY PRESERVATION SOCIETY.

Thompson was a U.S. House of Representative from Maine from 1879-1883,and the founder of the Granite Cutters International Union, president and secretary and editor of its journal and a remarkable man. The G.C.I.U. had its origins in Clark Island and then its first official international meeting in Rockland on March 10th 1877. The union was a very strong and outstanding union of its time.

I am doing a remembrance and celebration of Murch's life and of the G.C.I.U. on March 10th in Rockland Maine and would like to find any descendants of the granite workers,whom might like to attend in honor of their ancestors. I am taking my project on tour to other museums during the Spring and Summer of 2008, throughout New England.

Everyone is invited to attend the celebration of life of the Granite Workers of Maine and the Honorable Mr. Murch in Rockland. I will have more information as time goes on. I am hoping to be able to use the Rockland library's conference hall and to meet after at Main and Park st, where the Lynn hotel used to be. I believe there is a restaurant there now.

Thank you for any help in this matter, and look forward to seeing you there.

MURPHY:  Pursuant to information provided by the Maine Historical society, a William Murphy registered in the 1830 census as a resident of Hope in Waldo County. A son, also named William, is also named (in a household of eight people). The younger William might be my great-great grandfather who went to New Zealand on the Nantucket whale ship "Mary Mitchell" in 1835, before coming to Australia where he was a pioneer in the State of Victoria. On one of his children's birth certificates, he gave his birth place as Maine, USA and his father's name as William. He was born in 1816-17.
Is there any way of finding out more about this Murphy household, from Hope or Waldo County documents? It is a matter of great interest to two or three of us working on this, our 'William Project'.
I hope you might be able to suggest avenues for further research and thank you in anticipation of your reply.  Reply to: Jeffrey J. Murphy
