Penobscot Tombstone Project /Winslows

Hi Elizabeth, yes, I found them shortly after i wrote back, I was looking under the list of Penobscot names, and diden't have the their names linked to the the cemetery site properly...... Glad you could find them ok...... Glad i could help you. and others. I refuse to pay at other sites to look up family information, so i started this as a hobby.

Hi Glen,

I just saw the note on the Penobscot Tombstone Project about Lydia Winslow being John's wife. Could there be a daughter named Lydia born to Elijah and Eliza on 5 Aug 1772 and another Lydia born in 1780 who married their son, John?

I've been struggling with the Maine indexing project. I think that my ancestor was another daughter of Elijah and Eliza named Marcy. It's becoming quite confusing as the records list two children born on 14 Mar 1775 --
Marcy and Nancy but I can't find any record of twins. Any ideas?

I will stop by the town office on tuesday and do some research, check back with me around thursday I don't know how far back the town record go, but i will take a look.
I was thinking the same thing about another lydia who married john.

I find Mercy Winslow married to Jeremiah Clough of Freeport on 14 Apr 1791 and for the births of all their children the spelling of her name is chanced to Marcey. For the children of Elijah Winslow and Eliza, I find Nancy and Marcy both with the 14 Mar 1775 birth date as well as their other children. I'll look around and see what I can find about Nancy. I suspect there was just one child and the transcriber was dealing with a record that was difficult to read.

Bad sentence. It sounds like I found all of Elihah and Eliza'z children with the same birthday. Not the case.
