Mark & Hannah Welch, Georgetown, 1750s-60s; sons John & Mark, Jr of Northport

Want to establish origins of Mark & Hannah Welch. They were living in Georgetown, Maine when 4 children born there: Robert (1756), John (1758), Mary (1760) & Mark (1762). Kids births are per Georgetown VRs.

Mark, Sr. appears on the 1790, 1800 and 1810 census in Georgetown, Maine, living with a younger female, perhaps his unmarried daughter - Mary - as a Mary Welch (who falls in the correct age range) appears on the 1820 & 1830 Georgetown census (& she's the only Welch in Georgetown).

Meanwhile, sons John and Mark, Jr appear in Ducktrap (now Lincolnville, just south of Northport), Maine in 1790 and then in Northport, Maine on the 1800, 1810 & 1820 censuses. Per an online gazetteer, they were among the first settlers of the town. Northport was finally incorporated in 1796. On the 1800 census, John & Mark say they emigrated to Northport from Hallowell.

John married widow Deborah McFarland (widow of Solomon McFarland) in Bristol, Maine in 1787 (Bristol VRs). John died around 1829/30, and Deborah remarried in Nov 1830 to Thomas Parker Scribner. Deborah supposedly died in 1842 in Brighton, Maine. John and Deborah had at least one child who survived to adulthood (Deborah Welch Bushee), but the census data indicate other children, perhaps 3 boys & a girl.

Have not found any trail for Robert, the eldest child of Mark & Hannah.

Can anyone help with further info? Many thanks! - Suzanne
