I am seeking information on my ancestors who were in the Palermo, Maine area. I have very little to go on but this is what I have.
Esther Edwards was b. 2 Mar 1803. In Apr. 1828 she married William H. Goddard b. 25 Apr 1801. They lived in the Palermo area for a while owning some property and raising a family.
I am trying to determine who the parents of this couple was. I know nothing about William Goddard before his marriage to Esther Edwards.
From writings that I have inherited from an old great aunt, I have learned that Esther Edwards was one of nine (9) children. There were five sons:
#1. John who had the following children - Lizzie, Harriet, John and George.
#2. Eben had Mary Emma, Julia Ella, Albert and one other boy.
#3. Samuel who had Charlie, Freddie and Abbie
#4. David never married and died at sea.
#5. Johnathan who died young of a fever.
The girls were:
#1. Betsy (who I believe married a Longfellow and had 12 chilcren) She may have married Jonathan Perkins Longfellow.
#2. Mina who had 10 or 12 children - may have married a Towle.
#3. Esther who married William Goddard and had 6 children. This is my line.
#4. Martha who died when her father died.
The writing says that the father dint at 40 yrs.
Any help with this will be greatly appreciated.
