What a job- and all for naught!
In 1850 the town of Benton( never large enough for City status) was known as Sebasicook!
Benton is 23 miles N.N.E. of Augusta. It was first settled in 1775 and was formerly part of Clinton. Sebasicook was incorp. 16 March, 1842 Unity Gore was set off to Sebasicook (Benton) on 26 July, 1847. The name changed from S. to Benton in 1850( after the census).
Ancestry.com is a very helpfull site but when it comes to reading census pages I prefer the Family Tree Maker set up. I have the 1850 and 1900 Maine census and it is much easier to view and print.
I have printed out the pages on the Parkers and the Browns (who are on previous page) that might be related to Elvira. There is a Charles Parker( age 45) and wife Eliza( 37) who may be related to Nehemiah.
I also printed out the Thomas Parker ( age 57) in Fairfield, Somerset County- but I don't have a CD on this county 's cemeteries - I do have the Kennebce County one.
I did find a Thomas Parker( b. 1767- d. 1834)and wife Sarah(b. 1770- d. 1831) burried in Pine Grove Cemetery in Waterville. There is mention of a son Nehemiah but stone is burried.
Nehemiah Parker(1823/4- 1889) and wife Elvira(1828-1868) are burried in the Ames cemetery in Benton.
The Charles Parker I mentioned is burried in Riverview Cemetery in Clinton with wife Eliza Roundy.
You can have all these pages to look over if you e-mail me your land mail address- don't post it here.
