John P. Haslam

John is my first cousin 5 times removed.  His grandparents are Solomon I. and Christiana (Simonton) Jordan is my fifth great grandfather.   He was born 8 March 1799, in Ellsworth, Hancock County, Maine, to George and Hannah (Jordan) Haslam.  He married Louisa P. Hopkins (my third great aunt) on 10 July 1825.  They had the following children:  John Haslam Jr., Alanson, Emily W., Francis (Frank), Rebecca C., Molbry K., and Louisa H.  John was a farmer and was enumerated on at least 2 censuses, possibly more, in Waltham, Hancock County, Maine.[1]  He died 25 November 1877, and is buried at Hillside Cemetery in Waltham.[2]  I am still trying to find his middle name, proof of birth and cause of death.  If you have any information that would be helpful, please contact me.
