Solomon B. MESERVE

Solomon is my third cousin five times removed; we are related through Dominicus and Hannah (TRISTRAM) JORDAN.  He is the son of Solomon and Arabella J. (JORDAN) MESERVE.  Solomon and Parmelia were first cousins once removed through Daniel and Mehitable (BRAGDON) MESERVE.  Solomon and his family were enumerated in the 1840, 1850 and 1870 censuses taken in Machias, Washington, Maine.[1]  He was listed as a farmer in both the 1850 and 1870 censuses.  This family was hard to find anything of the children.  I found that son George served in the Civil War and that son Solomon Lewis married, but that is all I could find other than burial information on most of the children.[2]

Solomon B. MESERVE was born 30 April 1798 in Machias, Washington, Maine.  He died 23 May 1875 in Machias, Washington, Maine.[3]  He was interred at Meserve Cemetery in Machias, Washington, Maine.[4]

Solomon married Parmelia MESERVE 27 November 1823 in Machias, Washington, Maine[5].  Parmelia was born 20 December 1802 in Machias, Washington, Maine.[6]  She was the daughter of Joseph Libbee and Elizabeth B. (BURNHAM) MESERVE.  She died April 1888 in Machias, Washington, Maine.  She was interred at Meserve Cemetery in Machias, Washington, Maine.[7]

Solomon and Parmelia had the following children:

  1. Elizabeth F. MESERVE was born 1827.  She died unmarried in 1851.  She was interred at Meserve Cemetery in Machias, Washington, Maine.[8]
  2. Sarah A. MESERVE was born 1832.
  3. Leonard MESERVE was born 1836. He died 19 December 1866 in Steilacoom, Washington.
  4. George F. MESERVE was born 1838. He died 1873 in Machias, Washington, Maine.  He is interred at Meserve Cemetery in Machias, Washington, Maine.[9]
  5. Solomon Lewis MESERVE was born 1845 in Maine. He married Lizzie E.
  6. Leonora B. MESERVE was born 1849. She died 1851.  She is interred at Meserve Cemetery in Machias, Washington, Maine.[10]

Abigail GOODRIDGE

Abigail is my second cousin eight times removed; we are related through John and Lia (BLOTT) GREENE.  The name GOODRICH and GOODRIDGE are used interchangeably in records, I’m going to stick to GOODRIDGE for the purpose of this narrative since it is the name that became common use in the mid 1800’s.  This family has very few records to be found at this time.  I will update this in the future as records become available online.

Abigail GOODRIDGE was born 6 September 1715 in Berwick, York, Maine. [1] She was baptized 29 June 1718 at the First Church of Berwick, in Berwick, York, Maine.[2]  She was the daughter of Josiah and Mary (ABBOT) GOODRICH.  Abigail died 1 November 1806 in Salisbury, Essex, Massachusetts.[3]  Abigail married twice, first to Nathaniel BURBANK 18 October 1742 in Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts.[4]  Nathaniel was born 14 December 1715 in Rowley, Essex, Massachusetts.[5]  He was the son of Eleazer and Lydia (GAGE) BURBANK.  He died 1758 in Massachusetts.  She married second to Captain Jacob MORRILL 9 April 1771.[6]  Jacob died 23 March 1788.[7]

Abigail and Nathaniel had the following children:

  1. Sarah BURBANK was born 14 May 1743 in Rowley, Essex, Massachusetts.[8]
  2. Josiah BURBANK was born 14 June 1745 in Rowley, Essex, Massachusetts.[9] He was baptized 16 June 1745 in Byfield, Essex, Massachusetts by Rev. Moses PARSONS.[10]
  3. Mary BURBANK was born 15 March 1747. She was baptized 15 March 1747 in Byfield, Essex, Massachusetts by Rev. Moses PARSONS.[11]  She died of quinsy or throat distemper 12 June 1748.[12]
  4. Abigail BURBANK was born 19 October 1748 in Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts.[13] She was baptized 30 October 1749 in Byfield, Essex, Massachusetts by Rev. Moses PARSONS.[14]  Abigail married William MOODY.[15]
  5. Mary BURBANK was born 23 November 1750 in Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts.[16]
  6. John BURBANK was born 13 November 1755 in Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts.[17] He died 23 December 1831 in Freeman, Franklin, Maine. He is interred at Tuttle Corner Cemetery in Freeman, Franklin, Maine.[18]   John married Mary JOHNSON 22 April 1777 in Ipswich, Essex, Massachusetts.  While still married to Mary, John married Dorcas WELCH 23 July 1787 in North Yarmouth, Cumberland, Maine.

Almira S. GARCELON

Almira is my third cousin four times removed through Nathaniel and Dorothy (HILL) JORDAN; fourth cousin three times removed through Nathaniel and unknown spouse JORDAN; sixth cousin six times removed through John and Elizabeth (BIRCHARD) ALCOCK; and sixth cousin three times removed through Reverend Robert and Sarah (WINTER) JORDAN.  She is the daughter of Ebenezer Annis and Catherine (JORDAN) GARCELON.

 

Almira S. GARCELON was born 26 September 1824 or 1826 in New Portland, Somerset, Maine.[1]  She died of old age 1 February 1899 in Mapleton, Aroostook, Maine.[2]  She is interred at Old Mill Town Cemetery in Mapleton, Aroostook, Maine.[3]  Almira married John B. MOODY 17 April 1844 in New Portland, Somerset, Maine.[4]  John was born 1819 in Maine.[5]  He is the son of Robert and Rebecca (CHANDLER) MOODY.  He died 31 March 1887 in Perham, Aroostook, Maine.[6]  He is interred at Old Mill Town Cemetery in Mapleton, Aroostook, Maine.[7]

 

I could not find verifiable evidence of any children for Almira and John.  There was listed in the 1870 U.S. census an Edward E. MOODY born about 1857, but he was not listed with the family in the 1860 census or any other records connecting him to Almira and John.[8]
