Searching for information on the Keniston's of Brownfield, Oxford County, Maine. The 1850 Census for Brownfield lists several Kenistons in the town. My gggrandmother is listed as "Orvila" Brown in the 1850 census. (Marriage records give her name as "Aurela", and other records show "Orellia"). She was born in Brownfield in 1819 and married Sylvanus Brown, a shoemaker (according to the 1850 census)on March 27, 1837. Marriage records show her name as Kennison, but I've been unable to locate any Kennisons in the Brownfield area at that time. I suspect that her name was probably Keniston. Any information will be greatly appreciated.
