John-Have an accounting business and deal in facts all of
my working hours. I get very cranky when someone doesn't
do the same. Sometimes misinformation has cost me a lot of
time. Also get provoked with things that aren't reasonable. One being John Tinker Jr. and John Tinker Sr. were brothers which would make John Sr. years younger
than his wife. Not impossible but not probable. Another
thing was John Jr. was apprenticed to Edward Beal, who
was from York, ME. Edward was not listed as a sea Captain, so how did he get a boy fron Conn.? But it irks me just as
much when someone doesn't want to believe the facts when
they are put before them.
I stumbled on the two John Tinker's in Soldiers and Sailors
of the Revolution and John Sr. in Mt Desert Town records.
Wondered why people were having a problem whith the name of first Tinker who settled on Mt Desert. I then stumbled
on the York, Me militia list with John Tinker's name as
well a lot of men who settled at Deer Isle. Joan Pratt,
another Dawes cousin checked her York, ME VR books and
found the bapt. of John and Elizabeth Tinkers' children,
with a John the correct age to be John Jr. of Ellsworth.
A descendent of David Tinker had a copy of the paper that John Tinker signed at Deer Isle, as well as John Tinker's death date that I just sent to you.
With VR that people have found, we have been able to put
David Tinker's children together. Some of his descendents
lived at Frenchboro. As I said before, there was only one
Tinker family in the original settlers of Maine.
Yes, it has been fun as the pieces fit together with those
written facts that we found.
