My great-grandmother Abbie Estelle Swift was the daughter of Benjamin G Swift and Catherine Webber. I am trying to figure who the parents of Benjamin Swift, The Annals of Oxford, when mentioning his marriage to Catherine Webber, call him Benjamin Swift of Paris, but all the other records say his birthplace was Oxford.
At this point, I tend to think that he might be a son of Samuel Swift, son of Joseph Swift and nephew of Caleb Swift, two of the founders of Paris, Maine, but I haven't been able to prove it.
Samuel and his first wife, Statira Gammon settled in Oxford and had a daughter Abigail born in 1820. Supposedly Samuel "had other children", but I haven't found documentation so far, other than the 1830 census which shows Samuel living in Oxford and as having a son between 5 and 10, (could this be Benjamin?), 2 daughters under 5 and a daughter 5-9 (that would be Abigail) and the 1840 census where Samuel is listed as having 1 male under 5, 1 male 15-19, 1 female 15-19 (Abigail).
I'm hoping that someone can help me fill in the blanks and provide parents for Benjamin G Swift.
