Judee b. 18 Aug. 1756 Bruns.

Lourana b. 21 June 1757 Bruns.

Nathaniel b. 14 May 1759 Bruns.  He died 12 Jan. 1832.  Married Miriam Blethen  Daug. of John Blethen (4) and Dorcas Getchell of Brunswick.  Second wife Mary Moulton.  Both buried Durham.

Brunswick Vital Records pg. 21 has these Children Listed.

Some say that Anna, Joseph Riggs  and Elizabeth Whitaker are his children also, I can't prove this at this time.  But I will add them for now.

Anna b.   D. 19 Oct. 1825

Elizabeth Whitaker b. 15 Feb. 1764

Joseph Riggs b. 1766.

Gen. 3. 

Dorkes Gatchell 25 Feb. 1743 int show in Brunswick that she was going to marry John Blethen IV son of John Blethen.

1763.  According to Stackpole and The History of Durham pg. 151. John Blethen had 2 brothers Increase Blethen & James Blethen.  He states that John died at his daughter's house in Lisbon Me.  I find no grave for him there, also his daughter Mirriam married Nathaniel Getchell, I can find his grave but not hers.  John Blethen had 13 Children between 3 wifes, 1st wife unknown, 2nd wife Dorkes, 3 rd wife Hannah Hubbard.   So I am  going to say that Mirriam Blethen is the daughter of John & Dorcas.   Children listed on pg 151 History of Durham.  The Genealogy of The Blethen Family states that John 4 had 3 wifes, Dorcas who had 12 children by him, 2nd wife Hannah Hubbard 7 children by John and last wife is Abby Welsh. No Children.  Say John was alive in 1822 and he died at age 94. But according to  New England Families its say Dorcas was John's first wife and had 12 children.  According to Salem Vital Records and what I have read on the Blethen Genealogy lines is that this line is from Salem Mass.

I'll be speaking, on Sunday 10/11/2015, about Gatchell Cemetery in Brunswick and the folks buried there, if you're interested and/or able to attend.  The discussion is at 2pm in the Morrell Meeting Room of the Curtis Memorial Library in town. The talk is 1/2 about the people and 1/2 about the state of the cemetery.  I'm interested in having some Gatchell/Getchell/Getchel/Gitchel (etc)  descendents come over and hear about our work to date at the cemetery and maybe share what they know about the people buried here as well.

I also have a key to get to this cemetery without walking through the tick infested woods if you're ever in the area and interested in going.  My home phone is 207 729 4098.
