Feeling the frustration of not being able to find that elusive connection I need, I thought I might be able to provide some help as to a connection between the Brackett family and the Jewell family which occurred before 1800. In Maine at I believe Vinalhaven or thereabouts, James Jewell (1748-1803), married Susannah Brackett(1748-1838) a daughter of Abraham Brackett of Falmouth, (N.H.)Susannah's mother was Joanna Springer daughter of James Springer and from Georgetown, Me., now Bath. Source 'The Brackett Genealogy' and a probate record for James Springer there. There is an entry on findagrave.com, my most favorite site, at the Roberts Harbor Cemetery, Vinalhaven, Knox County, Maine at the plot for Susannah (Jewell) Carver which gives a little history of the Jewell family. I hope this helps, and please feel free to find my Joanna Jewell's parents or a record of her birth. -A Doescher
