NEALLEY: Does any one out there have information on the Nealley families that came to Monroe between 1802 & 1804? In 1802,  John B. Nealley & his younger brother Joseph came to Monroe.

In 1804, they were joined in Monroe by Daniel Nealley, the son of Andrew also from Nottingham, N. H.

OVERLOCK:  George F. Overlock was born in Stockton in 1870 and lived there his whole life. He married 3 times: Florence Thomas, Nellie Harriman and Lida (Eliza) B. Larrabee. All three wives are buried together in Mt. Prospect Cemetery in Stockton. There is a depression in the plot where someone was buried but there is no stone. I think George lived long enough to bury his third wife in 1957. However, I cannot find his death or his burial. I am told it is not in the Stockton death records and it is not listed in the on-line Maine deaths. I am told that he was a spiritualist and that he lived a long life "up on the hill." If you know anything about him or especially his death and final resting place, please let me know. Reply to:  Isabelle Hallam  14 Jan 05

PARK:  I've just discovered that I'm almost definitely related to the Park family of Searsport, Maine. Specifically, my Gr. Gr. Grandmother was Irene Park, born 23 Oct 1831 in Ohio. In the 1850 census, she's listed in the 1850 census (Searsport) with Oliver C. Park & his wife, Catherine E. & their children, Louisa E. & Oliver W., along with Richard J. Morithow? (Perhaps Merrithew) & his wife Harriet.
Oliver & Mr. Morithow are listed as sailors. Oliver was born about 1828 in Maine, Richard was born about 1820 in Maine.
I'm trying to figure out if Irene's father is Benjamin Park, or if he's someone else in that area. (Oliver C. is too young to be her father.) There sure look like there were a lot of Park families in Searsport that lived close to each other... Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

PATTERSON: Looking for the ancestors of Martin Francis Patterson, born Jan. 6, 1830 in Belfast, Maine. He married Ellen Lancaster, daughter of Valentine Lancaster and Jane Townsend. He is listed in the 1850 Belfast census with Geo W. Patterson in the household of James G. Sumner. Reply to: Judith Coy  18 Oct 02

PATTERSON: I am still seeking Mary Patterson's family. The birth date I have for Mary is Nov.25, 1783. I'm not certain of this as I have seen a 1784 date also. Mary Patterson married Thomas Russell of Mason, New Hampshire on March 6, 1808. The couple soon relocated to Mason. Their children were: Nelson 1809,  David 1811, Emily 1813, George 1818, and finally Thomas Barzillai, born 1826. I am thinking that this unusual middle name of Thomas' is possibly a Patterson family name. It certainly didn't come from the Russells. I don't have a clue which of the 5 or so Patterson families living in Belfast in 1790 was Mary's. Reply to: Judith Patterson 18 May 03

PENDLETON:  I was on the Waldo County, Maine website and noticed that the family name Pendleton was one of the seagoing families recorded in the book "Searsport Sea Captains" and that several generations of this family had been traced in this book.  There was a picture of a Capt. Phineas Pendleton I, b. Sept. 26, 1780, Stonington, Connecticut, d. Feb. 27, 1873, Searsport, Maine; Photograph from Searsport Sea Captains, p181.
That Pendleton family is an allied family of mine that I am researching.
I am interested in a Caleb Tweksbury Pendleton. The only help I can offer is the marriage notice from NB newspapers listed below:
Vital Statistics From New Brunswick (Canada) Newspapers, Vol. 55, Entry #1700:
“m. Smith’s Cove, N. S. ., 21st inst., by Rev. W. M. . Godfrey, at the house of Jabez Snow, Tewksberry Pendleton, Deer Island (Charlotte Co.) N.B. / Miss Eugenie GILLIS, [1] Smith’s Cove.* 27 September 1881 D.T.; 27 September 1881 D.N.; 6 October 1881 COURIER.”
By the way he m. a Eugenia Snow, NOT Gillis.
C.  T.  Pendleton died in NS on March 18 1903, aged 77 > born ca 1825. 
A lady on the Charlotte County, NB website informed me that the Pendletons of Charlotte County were related to the Pendletons of Islesboro, Maine.  I was hoping maybe my C. T.

PENDLETON: I am looking for info on Isaac Gilkey Pendleton.  According to the book by E .H. Pendleton he was living in Islesboro, ME in the early 1900's. Would like to know where, when he died and also who are listed as his surviving family members.  Reply to:  J. M. Pendleton 10 Oct 01

PENDLETON James Gilkey Pendleton was born in 1783 either in Islesboro or on Deer Island depending on whether you consider E. H. Pendleton or his headstone transcription more accurate.  He lived on Job's Island and Seven-hundred Acre Island until 1819, when he moved to Licking county, Ohio.  He is buried in Gaffiedl Cemetery in St. Albans Twp., Licking County, Ohio.  Two of his sons, Joel and Darius (my  gg grandfather), later moved to Hancock County, Ohio  (not to be confused with Hancock county,  Maine) where Darius ' homestead still stands  near McComb, Ohio.  The frustration I have with this family is that I have not been able to document the fact that many of his children were born on Job's Island..   I contacted the Islesboro clerk in 1999 and she could not locate the family.  I purchased "The vital Records of Islesboro " when it came out in 2000., but the James Gilkey Pendleton family was not listed.  The real frustration is that Cyrus, the son born between Joel and Darius,  went south and married a girl in Kentucky who was "descended from French aristocracy."   He also reportedly served in the Confederate Army, although I have not been able to document that.  I don't have a problem with his being a Confederate (the Pendletons historically seemed to be pretty independent about who they aligned with) , but in a History of Daviess county Kentucky, he says that he was born in VIRGINIA.   He still claimed James Gilkey Pendleton and Betsy Philbrook as his parents, but Virginia was where he was born.  For some time I have felt that he made up the Virginia story to give himself a more aristocratic background than the Maine Pendletons.  However, I have just discovered this week that there is a JOB'S ISLAND in Virginia, so maybe it was an honest mistake. 

    Darius had at least 15 children with two wives  in Hancock County, OHIO.  First wife was Rachael Philbrook from Maine.   A disturbing percentage of his children from both wives were a little "off" or disturbed to the point of being put in a mental instutution.    I can't help wondering if that cropped up in any other Pendleton lines.  Leah Pendleton Raney  31 Aug 07

PENDLETON:  Lavenia Eliza Pendleton ( b. Nov. 18,1850 in Islesboro, ME ) married Lester A. Lewis ( b. Feb.4, 1845 ) on August 29, 1875. Lester A. Lewis had a three mast schooner, the Lester A. Lewis or Schooner Lewis. The schooner wrecked in Provincetown Harbor November 26,1898. The Bangor Daily News reported it.  My husband is Lester A. Lewis and this is my only missing link in the Lewis history . Of course it is the most important to us. I would appreciate any information. I have exhausted nautical records.

PENDLETON/PHILBROOK: Are birth records available for Islesboro and/or Vinalhaven around 1807-1816? I am specifically looking for the children of James Gilkey Pendleton and Elizabeth Philbrook, m 1806 in Waldo Co. Most importantly, Joel, b. Jan. 26, 1812, Islesboro; Gideon, b. May 10, 1813, Vinalhaven, Knox/Jobs Island; Cyrus (Edmund Cyrus???) b. April 22, 1815, Jobs Island; Darius, b. November 14, 1816, Islesboro, South Fox Island. Contrary to what E.H. Pendleton recorded, there is a claim on the internet that Cyrus was born in Albemarle County Virginia and a convincing Daviess County, KY, history to back this up. So I am hoping that the source records exist. I'd like to get this straight. Can anyone help? Reply to: Leah Pendleton Raney 7 Nov 99

PERKINS:  I am looking for any information about Gordon (Garden) Perkins, born Palermo 1805.  I believe his father was John Perkins.  Also, Gordon's wife Olive Cressey, born Palermo 1805.  I believe they married in Palermo and had two children while in Palermo.  They then moved to Linneus,  Maine.    Reply to:  Donna Perkins  11 Jul 07

PERKINS: I am looking for the ancestors of John Chase Perkins who was born in Maine in the mid 1800. I have no record of his parents and was wondering if the 1790 census included names. If so maybe he would be a member of one of the many Perkins listed. Folklore and his death certificate stated that he was born in Bangor, ME and was 91 in 1925 when he died. However, FL census show two different ages so confusion reigns. Reply to: Harmonelle Perkins Jul 99

Abigail also married a John Perry.  Does anyone have a clue who this John was??  Where he was from......Was he maybe from Vinalhaven (Fox Island)??  The John who lived three doors down from a William on Fox Island.  It's a long shot but still I have no answers!!!! 

Does anyone have the lines of all the Perry brothers that were the first settlers in Maine-Mass at the time??  I am thinking that maybe Mark-William was a son of one of these brothers but which one?? 

If anyone knows  the answer's please ........help me.  I am hoping that someone out there has a book or or something that I don't and can answer this for me.

  My line goes like this:

  1. Mark Perry  (William M. Perry??)- Abigail Philbrook -Georgetown, Sagadahoc, ME...Where was Abigail buried??  Was she buried with William or John???  Or with her Philbrook-Philbrick family ??

  2. William Perry 1772 Camden, Knox, Maine - Martha Lindsey 1772, Thomaston, Maine

  3. Mark Perry  Thomaston, Maine - Esther M. Burgess 12 Oct 1807, Appleton, Knox, Maine.

  4. Mark Perry Jr. 10 Jul 1825 Appleton , Knox, Maine. - Hannah Catherine McKinny 13 Nov 1834, Lincolnville, ME

REYNOLDS: I'm trying to ascertain if my ggg-grandmother, Thankful Reynolds (maiden name) who married Joshua Reynolds in Burnham in 1842 is the daughter of John B. Reynolds and his wife, Betsy Dodge of Burnham. I understand that they had a daughter Thankful b 1824. I'd also like info on any other children of John B and Betsy (Dodge) Reynolds. Anyone know what the "B." in John B. stands for? John B. Reynolds parents were Daniel and Thankful (Haskell) Reynolds of Burnham. I found the town vital records (LDS microfilm) for Burnham that listed their intentions in 1842, listing them as Joshua Reynolds and Thankful Reynolds both of Burnham so I'm sure she was a Reynolds before marriage. Also, if anyone has info on Joshua's children. After Thankful Reynolds died, he allegedly married Adella but due to a combination of circumstances, I'm not sure if Joshua married Adella or maybe Joshua had a son named Joshua Jr who married her. Did Joshua really have 24 children between his two wives? Joshua and Thankful had a daughter Olive b 1854 who married (1) Nathen McCausland and married (2) Eben Fairbrother and died 1940. My mother remembers Olive as "Gram Fabbie". Reply to: Linda Wilson 28 Apr 00

RICHARDSON: Abriather Richardson was a Baptist Minister from Appleton, Maine. In 1830, a woman by the name of Mary (Chandler) Wellington was placed in his care by a Judge Johnson of Belfast, Maine. Mary died in Appleton the following year, 4 May,1831. She was declared "insane" by Johnson. I found Richardson's grave in a small cemetery on Appleton Ridge and was wondering if he kept any records of events such as these and would it be possible to view them. I have tried to make contact with the Appleton Baptist Church, but have not been successful. I think there is a possible link between the Wellingtons and Richardsons and have been attempting to link Peter Wellington to Mary ( Chandler) and George Wellington, also of Appleton. Mary was George's second wife. According to Sibley's History of Union, George removed from Union to Appleton, thence to Albion where he died. When Mary was brought to Belfast the court records show that she was a widow with no estate and was brought there by relatives Peter Wellington and James Clark Jr., who married Peter's sister, Mary Wellington. Any information would be appreciated. Reply to: Charles B.Whiting Jr. 33 Beechwood Drive Harwinton, Connecticut 06791   25 Mar 07

ROBBINS:  In the History of the Robbins Family of Walpole, Mass. - Descendants of William and Priscilla Robbins by Dana W. Robbins - 1949: on page 168 is Bela [4] Robbins, son of Ebenezer. Bela married in 1785 to Margaret Meservey. They lived in Union, Knox County, Maine. The very first child of Bela and Margaret was Lewis [5] Robbins, who married Nancy Fales. Lewis lived in the upper part of Lincolnville, Maine. I have extracted all that I can find of Lewis and Nancy and their descendants from the Lincolnville Census. In Camden, Maine, when Camden was in Waldo County, the next-door coastal town to Lincolnville, is an Almond Robbins, born circa 1815, who married 21 July 1837 [in Camden by Abram ogier, Justice of the Peace] to Lavinia Decker. The children that I have found for them are: Wilbert L., born 14 March 1843, Harriet E., born 18 Nov. 1846; John Thompson Robbins, born 6 Apr. 1848, and William Theodore Robbins, born 1 Nov. 1852. Now, in the above-named Robbins genealogy is an Almond Gushee Robbins, who only lived two years. With a name like Almond, wouldn't it seem that they were related? There seem to be no proofs that Almond Robbins, born circa 1815 is the son of Lewis and Nancy (Fales) Robbins, yet Lewis was the only Robbins family in Lincolnville. I'd appreciate any thoughts, proofs, or anything to break this line for me. Reply to: Isabel Morse Maresh 19 Oct 02

ROBBINS:  Possible  Belfast connections to: Benjamin and James  Robbins > Hezekiah b abt 1801, m Lucretia MOREY - Lived Deer  Isle, ME.
I just tried to contact a Monika Thomas who, I believe, is related to a Winston Thomas and/or Winston Thomas, Jr  of Belfast, abt 1900-1930.  My e-mail bounced. She had posted re a ROBBINS line on World Connect at rootsweb.com in 2001. 
Winston Thomas was a descendant of a Sarah Edna Robbins, abt 1855-1900 of Belfast, who m  Elbridge A Thomas. That Robbins line goes back to a Benjamin Robbins who was an ancestor of  Samuel Robbins, b. abt 1796. I have every reason to believe that my James Robbins (who was the father of  my GG gf, Hezekiah Robbins, b abt 1801 - d aft 1870 Census, but bef  1880 Census, who m Lucretia Morey and lived Deer Isle) may be a bother, cousin, or other relative of  Samuel Robbins, b abt 1796.  There are a number of given names in my Deer Isle family that are the same as those Monika named in the Robbins family of Belfast.
Can anyone put me in contact with someone in this family who might lead me to whoever now has the data about this family?  Reply to: Janice Freeman 16 Dec 05

ROBBINS:  I want to hear from anybody who has or knows of  a Robbins ancestor or other relative, male or female, from 1750 - present
along the Maine coast from Rockland thru Washington Co and into NB, especially around Campobello.

Where are the descendants of  the Samuel Robbins' family that lived around Belfast from bef 1850 - ???  ?

My e-mail program failed because I had overloaded my Inbox and as of now I seem to have lost all my e-mails since about 8  July  2006  -  5  March  2007.  Hopefully, I can find them somewhere and retrieve them.  In the meantime, if we have exchanged any direct emails between last July and this past March 5th, please send me copies if  you still have them. It would be a great help if you could put Robbins and some first name, date, and / or place in the subject line.

While I do have questions about some specific Robbins of the 1750 - 1850 time period, especially finding all the children of my GG gf's (Hezekiah's) father, James Robbins (if I can ever positively identify the correct  James in Census records), and determining for sure who James' father was  (supposedly Benjamin Robbins b 1750 RI),  I need to to find anyone who is working on  ANY   Robbins from Rockland thru (at least) Campobello, NB in the 1750 - 1850 (and hopefully well into the 1900's) time period. We especially need to identify as many parents / siblings, grandparents, Great grandparents, etc for all those Robbins families in the 1850 Census records (including the married females when possible).

I fully believe that if we'd all work cooperatively together, perhaps we can get these families straightened out, organized, compiled, etc. I want to include as many daughters, granddaughters, Great granddaughters, etc. and their descendants as we can possibly identify.

I want to hear from anybody who has or knows of  a Robbins ancestor or other relative, male or female, from 1750 - present, but especially before 1875 anywhere along the Maine coast, islands, or nearby mainland areas from Rockland thru Washington Co and NB, especially around Campobello. This does include the Union Robbins because I believe they are related to at least some of the Deer Isle and other coastal Robbins families.

I would appreciate any names of Robbins researchers who do not use the computer and an address / phone number where I may contact them. I will then see that they have an address / phone number where they can contact me.

I want to get to the library, historical / genealogical resources that are in the coastal area from Rockland  - Washington Co this summer. If you have any recommendations among such sources, please send me the information on who / what, where they are, days / hours open, etc, especially if you know they have any Robbins material.  I am a life member of the Deer Isle - Stonington Historical Society and am aware of their fabulous research room and data.  Meanwhile I'm working on organizing the data re the Robbins in Dr Benjamin Lake Noyes' data for Deer Isle.  There are some conflicting statements re which Robbins line that I would like to be able to resolve for certainty.

Most grateful for any additions, corrections, help in this endeavor.  We do not want to waste our time redoing what has already been done, but rather get our Robbins data  pooled together so we can all help each other.

ROGERS: My GGGrandfather, Atherton Wales Rogers, was born 14 November 1793, in Castine , Maine. He later moved to Lincolnville, Maine and became a Ship's Captain. He is mentioned as "a mariner" in 1815. Captain Rogers sailed the following ships:
                                             Commodore Perry - Sch., built 1814
                                             Samuel & John - Brig., built 1822
                                             Mount Moriah - Sch., built 1832
Captain A. W. Rogers, was lost at sea in 1845. I have read in December. I would like to know if anyone has any records or articles regarding the above ships. I have found that both the Commodore Perry - & the Mount Moriah, were lost in 1845. I believe that the Commodore Perry - was lost off the coast of Deer Isle, Maine. I have written several maritime museums without any success. No one has been able to provide any information on the circumstances of these two wrecks. I am in hopes that maybe someone has records that might give some detailed account of one or both of these ships.

ROSE/DODGE: Am interested in finding roots of the Waldo County Rose and Dodge families. James R Dodge married Deborah ROSE. Who were her parents? They lived in Islesboro, Waldo Co., Maine. Other names I'm seeking: Noah Dodge, James Dodge Jr. , Henry Hancock Rose, Rosannah Rose. I can't find out anything on these families.

RUSSELL: Nelson Russell was born in Belfast, Maine, 23 Apr 1809 to, I am told, Mary Patterson and Thomas Russell (1727-1803). These dates don't add up. Does anyone have any record of Nelson Russell or Mary Patterson? Dr. Thomas Russell was from Wilton, New Hampshire. According to the 1800 Waldo census, there were at least 9 Patterson families in the area. Reply to: Judith Patterson 16 Jul 02
