My Richardsons go back to Philip P Richardson and Lydia Dow who married in Pembroke, Merrimack NH in 1794. Their son Philip married Esther Laughton (2nd wife) in New Sharon Maine in 1834 and then their daughter Louisa Amata Richardson married my great great grandfather Jonathan Phelps West in 1865, probably in Upton, Maine.
My great, great grandfather William N. Gower married Eliza Ellen (Lizzie) Metcalf. (I have a picture.) Her father was Andrew S. Metcalf b. about 1803 Vermont, died 19 Dec 1845 Bucksport. Mother Mary Jane Kenney. Andrew - Andrew was son of Jason Metcalf and Mary Slyfield., James Regan Gower - 24th or 25th US Inf - taken prisoner Fort Niagara Dec 1813 - held Montreal over winter - almost starved - transported to St. John, NB in spring (St Lawrence - Reviere du Loup - St. John) - escaped near Fredericton - made to US near Randolf, Maine.
Yes, the Angel Gabriels story is worth a novel or a movie - and the biggest coincidence is that my paternal ancestor - William Furber - arrived on the same ship! William eventually goes to Dover NH and some of his descdendants come to Maine abt 1813. Ralph Blaisdell - my maternal ancestor - goes first to York then to Salisbury Mass and his descendant Ebenezer comes to York Maine about 1815. Three hundred years later their descendants met and married!!!!
Charlotte Buzzell (b abt 1796) is dau of Elijah and Mary/Polly (Emery) Blaisdell. Polly is dau of John & Adah (Emery) Emery of York (I can give those lines back if you want). Elijah is son of Daniel and Mary (Allen) Blaisdell; Daniel is son of Ebenezer and Lydia (Webber) Blaisdell; Ebenezer is son of Ebenezer and Abigail (Ingersol) Blaisdell; Ebenezer is son of Ebenezer and Sarah (Colby) Blaisdell; Ebenezer is son of Henry and Mary (Haddon) Blaisdell; Henry is son of Ralph and Elizabeth (Parker) Blaisdell. Ralph Blaisdell, his wife, and son Henry arrived in America on the Angel Gabriel which was wrecked in Pemaquid Aug 15, 1635. A memorial plaque was erected last summer at Colonial Pemaquid State Park.
Canaan VRs lists family of Enos Jewell and his wife Fanny on pp 17-18 - 13 ch inc Anson b 24 May 1810 - first 4 ch b in Gardiner, Kennebec County - rest b in Canaan - Anson and wife Mary's family listed on pp 70-71 - 6 sons, 1 dau who dy - Anson d 20 Sept 1888 - p 141 lists marriage intention for Anson Jewell and Mary Buzzell dated 3 Oct 1836 but I cannot find a marriage for them.
Maine Families in 1790 also notes that both Charlotte and Joseph were of York - perhaps you could find more about him in York VRs - what is your connection to Blaisdells? I have lots and lots of stuff on them as I am now the Editor of Blaisdell Papers.
Canaan VRs list ch of Joseph Buzzell and Charlotte on pp 43-44 as well as Joseph's death 23 June 1842 - Charlotte m Samuel Moore of Sidney 3 Mar 1845 (p 154) --Maine Families in 1790, Vol 10, p 46, cites Berwick VRs with marriage of Joseph Buzzel and Charlotte Blaisdell 23 Jan 1814 in So Berwick
That's what I thought - I have tintype pictures of Lucy Burrill Chase and Benjamin Chase Sr but my scanner isn't working right now so I can't send them. They are posted on Canaan Historical Society website - Sally
