James and Nathaniel Springer, Bath/Georgetown

I am trying to document the lineage of Sarah Springer, born 25 April 1767 in Georgetown and wife of Consider Turner (m 1784?) and then of Adam Lemont; she died 28 August 1845 in Bath.

Sarah Springer is said on one online genealogy to have been the daughter of Nathaniel Springer and Sarah Hodgkins. There seems to be considerable confusion about Nathaniel Springer, and I am wondering if there were not at least two and possibly three men of this name in Georgetown at the time of…

Jeremiah and Alexis Abbott, Portland

Dear folks,

I am trying to establish a definitive set of parents for Alexis Abbot b January 1804 somewhere in Massachusetts and died 6 Feb 1889 in Portland. His death record does not list parents. He is buried in Deering (now Portland), at Evergreen Cemetery, which I have not yet visited.

Some family information, and the Abiel Abbott genealogy of the George Abbott family, suggests he is the son of Jeremiah Abbot 17 May 1776-d 1834, but that's not confirmed, and I find…

By Way of Introduction...

Greetings!

I’m Jeff Martin, a retired family physician and, not so retired, family historian from York Beach. I’ve been doing genealogy for the past 45 years and between my wife and I, I’m convinced that we’re related to EVERYBODY in the state of Maine! My first publication was “A New England Genealogy” in 1987, and I taught a genealogy course through the Windham Adult Ed. Dept for several years. At this point I’m trying to finish an update to “A New England Genealogy” which…

Epilogue - The Whiting Women

Epilogue

 

          So, maybe I was off base about first cousin marriage in rural Maine being rare.  Most of the time people did not marry someone with the same last name, but at other times, it obviously just didn’t matter to them. The current laws in Maine prohibit first cousin marriage, unless you obtain a physician’s certificate indicating that you have received genetic counseling prior to the…

The Whiting Women - Synopsis

The Whiting Women - Synopsis

 

          The legend of Gladys Mable Hunt[1] began many years before she was even born in Wellington, Maine, on the cusp of the 20th century.  She was born to "White" parents, whose own parents were all "White", as were all of their ancestors.  Not a single Narragansett Indian. Zero.

 

          Gladys Mable (Hunt) Whiting would die just as the 21st…

Paul myrick and son in law Josiah harding

Paul Myrick married Mary Coombs in 1798 on Vinalhaven. They had 10 children and he was in 3 censuses. I need proof of his birthdate so I can connect him to the Paul Myrick who was born in 1744 in Dartmouth,Mass. Lucinda Myrick, his daughter married Josiah Harding on Vinalhaven in 1820. I need proof of his birthdate and father and grandfather's names. find a grave is a guess that he is joshua's son.
