I am doing some genealogy research and was wondering who is the historical expert on Roxbury, Maine that might be able to help me with some details.
I am specifically looking for more information on Ebenezer and Ruth (Cogswell) Allen who may have lived in Roxbury in the 1800's. Ebenezer's parents are Reuben and Lydia (Thurston) Allen. Ruth's parents are Dr. Joseph and Judith (Colby) Cogswell. It is rumored that Ebenezer may have also been married to a Nancy Judkins or a Mary before Ruth. This is indicated by the tombstone of Deborah "the daughter of Ebenezer and Mary" He was also married to an Elizabeth ? as stated in the 1850 census. Elizabeth is not buried in the family plot. I am descended from their son Thomas and his wife Diantha Huston who married Daniel Oldham after Thomas death. Any advice and insight you can provide is appreciated. Thanks Dawnie Hodgkins

I am looking for information on Zebediah MITCHELL, and his wife, Sarah (PORTER) MITCHELL, possible ancestors, who lived in Mexico in 1820 and then apparently in Rumford. They died Aft 1820 and are buried in the yard near the house that was once Fred A. Porter's of Rumford Falls, ME (maybe still is-I have no dates on Fred Porter). Their children were Nancy, Jonathan, Darius, Salome and Sarah. Zebediah was probably b in Providence Co, RI, and Sarah in Windham Co, CT.
Any additional information would be welcomed, especially on any of Zebediah's sibs or parents, dates of death for Zebediah and Sarah and any married names of their daughters and any known grandchildren for Zebediah and Sarah. Thanks. Georgianna Mitchell
