Glad to help.

1860 census of China, Kennebec Co., ME, page 578

Joseph Haskell, 54, farmer
Clarinda, 46
Hannah, 26
Nathaniel, 25
Hartwell B., 23, farmer
Helen M., 21
Dianna, 19
Louisa B., 18
Hilldanus, 17
All have the last name of Haskell and all were born in Maine.

1850 census of China, Kennebec Co., ME, page 214

Joseph Haskell, 43, farmer
Carinda, 37
Hannah D., 17
Nathaniel B., 15
Hartwell, 12
Helen M., 10
Diana, 9
Hildanus, 7
Edgar W., 7/12
All born in Maine.

This is from the Kennebec County, Maine Directory 1913-14, town of China;

Edgar W. Haskell, farmer, Weeks Mills
Elmer Haskell, farmer, Weeks Mills
J. Hildanus Haskell, farmer, South

I did look around for the children you mentioned in your first message, but didn't have very much luck. Here is what I did find:

1920 census of Palmero, Waldo Co., ME, edition #142, page 1A, farm

Raymond Haskell, 41, farmer (general farm)
Olive A., 42
Wellman L., 18
Sydney B., 16, farm laborer (home farm)
Ralph M., 14, farm laborer (home farm)
Maude E., 13
Edith M., 11
Beulah P., 9
Alice R., 6
Sarah C.?, 4 3/12
Joseph H., 2 ?/12
All of the children are the sons and daughters of Raymond and Olive. Everyone and their parents were born in Maine.

From Maine Marriage Records 1892-1996:

Wellman L. Haskell of Palmero and Lucy E. Fuller of Liberty married on June 25, 1923

Ralph M. Haskell of Palmero and Catherine A. Thompson of Albion married on June 23, 1929.

Edith M. Haskell of China and Orlave L. Kitchen of China married on January 24, 1928.

There were many, many Haskell families in the earlier census records (1850/60/70) in China. Let me know if you have any questions.

Good luck!
