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:

Childhood deaths month of April

“There is no footprint too small to leave an imprint on this world.” Author unknown.  The death of a child is one of the hardest things a parent has to endure, but the death of more than one child must be a living hell.  Many of the families I’ve researched have had that happen, some losing all their children before they attain adulthood.  Below are the few children I’ve come across this week of the young lives that would be forgotten, but with genealogy, and the search of the families that came before me I have come across these little heroes.

Tristram JORDAN was born 11 April 1726 in Cape Elizabeth, Cumberland, ME.[1]  He was the son of Major Dominicus and Johanna (DEERING) JORDAN.  He died at the age of 11 months and 7 days on 18 March 1727 in Falmouth, Cumberland, ME. “Maine, Death Records, 1617-1922,” copy of old death records, Ancestry.com, Ancestry.com (http://ancestry.com : online 18 March 2014), Trustem [Tristram] Jordan 18 Mar 1727.

Ashley GOWEN was born 4 January 1836 in Winslow, Kennebec, ME.  He was the son of George and Anna (ABBOT) GOWEN.  He died at the age of 3 years, 8 months, 16 days on 20 September 1839 in Winslow, Kennebec, ME.

Esther JORDAN was born about 1778 in Cape Elizabeth, Cumberland, ME.  She was the daughter of Clement and Sarah (GRAY) JORDAN.  She “died young,” which generally means before the age of consent.

Martha JORDAN was born about 1776 in Cape Elizabeth, Cumberland, ME.  She was the daughter of Clement and Sarah (GRAY) JORDAN.  She “died young,” which generally means before the age of consent.

Edward Trufry STANLEY was born 16 November 1830 in Mount Desert, Hancock, ME.[2]  He was the son of Isaac and Eliza A. (JORDAN) STANLEY.  He died about age 7 in 1837.[3]

Freeman COFFIN was born 13 May 1806.  He was the son of Thomas and Elizabeth (PARKER) COFFIN.  He died at the age of 1 year, 10 months and 29 days, on 11 April 1808.

Louisa JORDAN was born 21 May 1819 in Gorham, Cumberland, ME.[4]  She was the daughter of Benjamin Allen and Elizabeth (ADAMS) JORDAN.  She died at the age of 1 year, 10 months and 30 days, on 20 April 1821.[5]

Louisa JORDAN was born 11 May 1824 in Gorham, Cumberland, ME.[6]  She was the daughter of Benjamin Allen and Elizabeth (ADAMS) JORDAN.  She died at the age of 1 year, 8 days on 19 May 1825 in Gorham, Cumberland, ME.[7]

Rebecca JORDAN was born 10 July 1821 in Gorham, Cumberland, ME.[8] She was the daughter of Benjamin Allen and Elizabeth (ADAMS) JORDAN. She died at the age of 7 years, 9 months on 10 April 1829 in Gorham, Cumberland, ME.[9]

Harriet A. JORDAN was born 6 September 1840 in Portland, Cumberland ME.[10]  Her parents were Gardner and Hannah (RACKLEFF) JORDAN.  She died of consumption at age 11 years, 8 months and 22 days on 28 May 1852 in Portland, Cumberland, ME.[11]

Son JORDAN was born 25 July 1842 in Portland, Cumberland, ME.  He was the son of Gardner and Hannah (RACKLEFF) JORDAN.  He died of “infantile” at 1 day on 26 July 1842 in Portland, Cumberland, ME.[12]

Cornelia JORDAN was born in 1849 in Portland, Cumberland, ME.  She was the daughter of Gardner and Hannah (RACKLEFF) JORDAN.  She died of consumption at age 7 on 11 September 1856 in Portland, Cumberland, ME.[13]
