Hi Peter,

What I know for sure is that Mercy Winslow m. Jeremiah Clough on 14 Apr 1791 in N. Yarmouth (certificate says Cumberland, Cumberland, Maine). They had at least 5 children perhaps more, but Mercy (Marcey on the birth records) does not appear after the birth of Joseph in 1800. I'm descended from their daughter Esther b. 1795 m. Thomas W. Winslow. He was the son of Rev War Pvt. Abraham Winslow. Based on the 1791 marriage date, I thought Mercy was the daughter of Elijah and Eliza, b, 1775. Now, I'm not so sure. Old Times in N. Yarmouth says that Jeremiah married 3 times (Mercy Winslow, Mercy York, and unknown). I am baffled. I find Jeremiah on the Freeport road tax list for about 5 years in the early 1800s. Often he is near Samuel Clough. I have no parents for Abraham Winslow (m. 1789) or Jeremiah Clough. Although on the 1800 census Abraham is next to Samuel Winslow. I plan to try to see if Mercy might possibly have been a sister or cousin of Abraham. That might explain the marriage of young Esther and Thomas. Please keep me in mind if you discover anything, and I will you.
