Elizabeth, i'm not finding much " on the internet" about Elijah & Elizabeth Winslow's family around Penobscot Area being connected to Mercy / Marcey Winslow and Jeremiah from Freeport, Yarmount areas. Can you tell me where to find this information ?

Hi Glen,

I went to the Maine Genealogy section that says "Search Databases. I put Elijah Winslow's dates 1739-1822 and he comes up often with his wife Eliza and their children. Nancy is #10 and Marcy is #13 if you search this way. One of my many great grandmothers Esther Clough was the daughter of Jeremiah Clough of Freeport and Mercy Winslow. I owe my thanks to Chris Dunham for helping me find Mercy/Marcey. Please let me know what you think about the possibility of twins. At this point, I don't know what to think.

Just an added note: Esther Clough married Thomas Winslow (b. 1792) in Freeport. Thomas was the son of Abraham Winslow and Betsey Welch. Abraham was a private in the Revolutionary War; Elizabeth received his pension after his accidental death in 1806 (a tree fell on him in Feb 1806).
