In Memory of Sylvia Fitts Getchell B. July 3, 1925-Nov. 17 2012  Wife of Leonard Getchell. It was my honor to have known you and speak with you about the Getchells line, you will be missed.   Hope to continue some of your work.!.

I wish to thank all of you who spent time sending emails etc to me on the lines of the Getchells.  I hope these blogs explain the history and most important the marriages and where they are buried in Maine.  The Getchells are related by marriage to the Bakers, Mckenneys, Nasons, Pearsons, Taylors.

The Getchells spelling is also noted as Gatchell, Gitchell, Gitchel.

I also finally got a hold of copy of Elizabeth Mosher book on Northport Getchells, More on this later.

I started this journey in 1995 with my brother rick who was also interested in the lines of our parents.  Although my brother is no longer here I will continue the work, sad to say that this Genealogy Journey is almost at a end.

Thanks for being with me bubba.   

I have had a lot of Questions about the Getchells DNA. so Lets start here my brother had a DNA test done which show  40 % Irish-37 % Scandiavian & 23 % other.    My dad always said there was dutch in the lines.  So where do we go from here?  My mothers Grand Parents were from Ireland. There buried in Lewiston Maine.

Pg. 499 Wiscasset V.R. states :  Mrs. _____Getchell Widow of the late Mr. _______Getchell D. May 19 1814.  I think this is Hannah Wittum Getchell.  No grave found.


John Getchell Jr. b. 8 Dec 1766  died in Wiscasset.

William b. ?  married Anna  no children found.

According to Embden Town of Yore  Dr. Edward Savage acquired John Getchell lot on Seven Mile Brook, Pg. 101.

Pg. 2 States "John Getchell Jr. who returned to Wiscasset in 1793, this property was 50 rods wide and one mile long,North and South from the brook."

This John b. 8 Dec. 1766 marries Keziah Mckenney, then Nancy Bailey.- ok his grave is in Wiscassett, with Marcy Getchell who's dates if there are correct belong to Marcy Dickerson , now Marcy Dickerson was surpose to marry John Getchell Nason.  He is son of Abraham Nason & Anna Hearl (errils) .John Getchell Nason married Marcy Dickerson  7 Nov. 1794.  John Getchell Nason b. Oct. 19 1770.  If this is the wife of John Getchell Nason Wiscassett Vital Records reads as follows:  Mrs. Marcy Getchell d. Jan. 16 1861 but does not state who she is wife of.    Headstone reading states she is wife of John Getchell.    Mercy Dickerson is the Daug. of Abjah Dickerson & Hannah. 

My question is where is John Getchell Nason buried?

Lucetta b. 1815 - May 10, 1856  Married Simion Weymouth. She is buried Tuttle Corner 

Cemt. Freeman Franklin Co. Me.

Now comes a debate about Ezra Getchell b. 1808. Ernest G. Walker's book states he is the son of Nehemiah Getchell and Rhoda Dawes pg. 380. This Ezra marries Margaret Savage and has one son John Getchell. Walker states that Ezra Died at North Anson. Ezra's grave is in Anson .   Now Simmions Getchell & Cynitha Chase was surpose to have a son by the name of Ezra also with the same dates.   I have found no Ezra in the Brunswick V.R's that he ever existed.  So Simmions Getchell is also buried in Anson. (this would be Capt. John's Line of Brunswick)

Ezra's wife margaret died in Mass.

The saying of this family is that we have gone home.

This means we believe that we will all see each other again.

My brother has gone home to be with his people and his friends.

Friends like Dave Walker, and family to hold him close until his pain passes.

I know that you have gone home my brother and I will see you again.

I know your pain will pass and so will mine but until then my family and friends will wait for me to come home and be in the place where there is no pain, just memories and love and honor.

So go home my brother be with mother and father, they await your honor to stand beside them.

good bye bubba.

Susan depending on where they were married in maine, and the date, you might find the records in that town, or go threw and see if they have the cds for that town and time. They do have a wonderfull source of the original copies.  Hope this helps, let me know what you find. Thanks, and good luck.

Hi, I have Getchell/Gatchell's from Lisbon and Durham. Ann who married Reuben Kimball and is buried in Gardiner, was born 1804 in Durham. I would like to find her parents. Any help here would be much appreciated. Thank you.
