In Reply to: Wyman's born in Maine by John Wyman of 942

In the "History & Genealoghy of Chester, Maine" on page 175
" Joseph Wyman came from Oxford. He bought lot 31 recorded Jan 22, 1838. He lived in the northern part of Chester. m. Jennie Sibly of Burlington, Maine" the wife appears to be wrong she is listed in Maine state archives married to a Joseph on 12-31-1898. The 1850 ceneus lists Joseph Wyman's wife as Sally.
Cemetries in Chester list Wyman, Marandia dau of Joseph & Sally Wyman died Sept 19, 1850 AE 2 yrs 7 mo. 11 days. Wyman, Joseph died Oct 24, 1853 Ae 44yrs 2 mo.

Mattawamkeag Cemetry is where Bradford May 28, 1835-Feb 23, 1909 and his wife Abbie A. Jan 5, 1841-Jan 13, 1923 are buried. Richmond 1823-1888 and wife Cynyhia 1833-1913 are buried in South Winn Cemetry.

"Bela Wyman of Woodstock had seven children, of whom the eldest three. William, Joseph, and Seward, came to Lincoln about 1828; the last probably did not remain long.
