I believe I am connected to the Jacob Main and Charlotte Ellis Main Tebbetts couple.
My Great great grandparents were married in 1825 Belgrade, Kennebec, Maine by a Rev. Jacob Main and with the closeness of the ages, I believe he was the brother of my gggrandmother, Olive.

This is what I have so far: The Rev. Jacob Main married Moses White and Olive ? on 14 Nov 1825 Belgrade,Kennebec, Maine. I have no record (unless on the marriage certificate) of her last name and have assumed it to be Main. This family remained in Belgrade until 1849-1850 raising their children of whom I am related to. They lived in Starks, Somerset, Maine for approx. a year and is where their youngest son, was born. They then moved to Aledo, Mercer, Illinois where 4 of the sons enlisted in the Union Civil War.

Any help in solving Olive's surname and the possible relationship of her and the Reverend, would be very appreciated.

Thanks, Gwen
