Spillers of North Raymond

Does anyone have information about Native American heritage in the Spiller family of North Raymond?  I believe my great, great grandmother, Dorcas Cobb Verrill was Native American.  Does anyone have any updated information?  Thanks.

Looking for information on Olive Landers

I am looking for death information on Olive Landers, Born: 16 Feb 1789 in Greene, Maine daughter of Albisha Landers and Mary Fuller. She married Silas Ireland in Greene on 6 Aug 1807. I have seen various family trees that have posted she died in Canaan, Maine in 1815 but no documentation attached to prove that. Any help would be appreciated.
