I am looking for information on the Hobarts who came to Edmunds, Maine from Mass. in the early 1800's.

My research to date tells me that Isaac Hobart who's father was Aaron had a son named Benjamin who lived there.

Benjamin's son Isaac E. Hobart married Margaret Fizzell (who came from Ireland via Canada) and they subsequently moved to Michigan.  Their son, Pearl Edwin, was my great great grandfather,  His daugter was Veeda Hobart.  Unfortunately, they had no male children so this branch of the Hobart tree goes no further than St. Johns, Michigan.

 

Anyone else looking for this family / information?  If so, let's share!

 

Thanks.

For anyone interested: I have been able to trace backwards from Benjamin Hobart of Edmunds, Maine to Edmund Hobart who came over from Hingham, Norfolk England on the Elizabeth Bonaventure II to Boston in 1633.  It is for Edmund that I understand the city of Edmunds,Maine is named.

One of Edmunds sons, Thomas, who came over with him is my ancestor and the GGG grandfather of Benjamin.  Rev. Peter Hobart was Thomas' (twin?) brother and served as pastor of the church in Highmam, Mass.  The Hobart family also helped settle another Boston area city, Abington.  Benjamin's grandfather, Col. Aaron Hobart, lived in Abington, Mass. and played a role in the Revolutionary War,  Amongst other accomplishments, he was the 1st to cast Meeting Bells and Cannons in America.
