I am trying to find documentation to connect my husband's great-great grandfather David Place Palmer to his parents.

According to my husband's grandfather's notes David Place Palmer was born in Maine 1 Sep 1832 and died 8 May 1873. I have an article in the newspaper documenting his death in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I cannot find a death certificate for him nor additional birth records. I also have documentation (Intentions of Marriage) that David Place Palmer from Brownsville, Piscataquis County, Maine married Jerusha Sutherland from Sebec, Piscataquis County, Maine - 8 Aug 1854.

Family trees I have found on Ancestry and FamilySearch list Jonathan Palmer and Roxana (Whittemore) as David Palmer's parents, but not any documentation.

Information below is documented.

Jonathan Palmer
1806–1837
BIRTH 18 MAY 1806 • Athens, Somerset County, ME
DEATH 5 FEB 1837 • Foxcroft, Piscataquis County, Maine

Roxana Whittemore
1805–1834
BIRTH 11 SEP 1805 • Hebron, Oxford, Maine, USA
DEATH 01 SEP 1834 (not documented)

Jonathan and Roxana Palmer Marriage
27 Oct 1829 • Hebron, Oxford, Maine, USA

I also would like to find their gravestones. No luck on Findagrave.

Have you tried the probate records for Piscataquis? (I do realize I might be asking you if grass is green....)
