Yes Henry Sewell Albee Was a son of Ebenezer, He was called Sewell , Josiah Parsons wifes maiden name.Quite a guy. A sea Captain at 22 .He sailed all over the world from Wiscasset Maine. I have a list of the ships he sailed their tonage etc, picked up at the Maine Maitime museum in Bath. Even his size 5' 6". Even had a mutiny on his ship with 7 men being hung in Post Haiti. He had 3 sons lost a sea one a sea captain whose wife and 2 year son were also lost. When wife had her last child at 39, she said this son is not going to sea. Fortunate because this son became a farmer and his son Dr Fred Albee became one the worlds greatest orthropedic surgeons, the first to use bone grafting techniques, he taught and operated all over the world . He received the highest civilian award from 12different countries , wrote several books, one The "Reconstruction of Man" dedicated by Lowell Thomas who called him one of the 4 greatess Phyicians of all time. He was also doctor for the Byrd expedition to the artic. Founded the town of Venice Florida, built a hospital there.
I was fortunate to meet and talk to his sister before she died she was 24 years younger than him and learned alot He was my great uncle.
If your interested have lot of info on Parsons.
