Re: Aseneth Southard

In Reply to: Re: Penobscot Co., Maine surnames by Jean E. Mcclure Mahoney of 680

Hi again,

Forgot to tell you that Aseneth Southard was Dora's aunt.

Aseneth Y. Southard (b. Abt. 1854 in Bradford, Penobscot Co., ME) was the youngest of 8 children born to John and Louisa (Sampson) Southard, and the younger sister of Dora Southard's father, Bradford Southard, who I mentioned in my prior post. (He probably got his name from the town of Bradford, ME to which the family removed, come to think of it!)

My family file indicates that Aseneth Y. Southard married Llewellyn McClure on 8 Jan 1876 in Bradford, Penobscot Co., ME and that they had 2 children: Walter F. McClure (b. Abt. 1876) and Charles H. McClure (b. Feb 1880). I have no further information on their descendants, but if you do I would love it if you'd share that data with me so I could fill in these gaps.

FYI, Louisa Sampson was John Southard's second wife. He had 13 children with his first wife, Fannie Gulliver/Gullifer, and when she died he married Louisa Sampson with whom he had 8 more children for a total of 21 children in all. He also lived to be 103 years old!

The children of John and Louisa (Sampson) Southard are as follows:

1. Mariah Southard (b. 1836 in St. Albans, Somerset Co., ME), married (1) Lewis Frost, and (2) William Merrill.
2. Melissa Southard (b. Abt. 1837 in St. Albans, Somerset Co., ME), married Lucian Tucker. She died in Southborough, Worcester Co., MA.
3. Cyrus Southard (b. Abt. 1839 in St. Albans, Somerset Co., ME), married Marcia M. Arnold on 1 May 1863 in Penobscot Co., ME.
4. Levi Southard (b. Abt. 1841 in St. Albans, Somerset Co., ME). Died at 6 years of age.
5. Henry Southard (b. Abt. 1843 in St. Albans, Somerset Co., ME). Died at 6 years of age.
6. Adeline Southard (b. Abt. 1847 in St. Albans, Somerset Co., ME). May have die din childhood. I have no further info on her.
7. Bradford B. Southard (b. Abt. 1849 in Ripley, Somerset Co., ME), married Elba D.
8. Aseneth Y. Southard (b. Abt. 1854 in Bradford, Penobscot Co., ME), married Llewellyn McClure on 8 Jan 1876 in Bradford, Penobscot Co., ME.

I can also give you, for your additional information, the children of John Southard and his first wife, Fannie Gulliver/Gullifer. There are 13 children of that union, and these would be the half-siblings of the above-listed children with John Southard's second wife, Louisa Sampson.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
