Elizabeth MITCHELL

 

Elizabeth is my third cousin five times removed; we are related through Dominicus and Hannah (TRISTRAM) JORDAN.  I found it interesting that no family tree found on Ancestry.com, FamilySearch.org or even in The Jordan Family listed all of the children; each only listed two to three children for the family.  It took some interesting search methods to finally piece the family together.  Although not all children have full information, there is enough on each family member to get a good sense of who the family was.

Elizabeth “Betsey” MITCHELL was born 8 November 1775 in Cape Elizabeth, Cumberland, Maine.[1]  She is the daughter of Jonathan and Anna (LOVETT) MITCHELL.  She died 17 June 1856 in Danville, Androscoggin, Maine.[2]  She is interred at McKenney-Murray Cemetery in Auburn, Androscoggin, Maine.[3]  Elizabeth married twice; first she married Luke LIBBY 21 September 1795 in Danville, Androscoggin, Maine, mistakenly listed as 20 August 1796 in The Family Jordan.[4]  Luke was born 1767 in Scarborough, Cumberland, Maine.[5]  He was the son of Luke and Dorothy (MCKENNEY) LIBBY.    He died 13 October 1800 in Danville, Androscoggin, Maine.[6]  He is interred at McKenney-Murray Cemetery in Auburn, Androscoggin, Maine.[7]  Elizabeth married second to Thomas MURRAY 20 December 1801 in New Gloucester, Cumberland, Maine; with intentions filed 27 November 1801 in New Gloucester, Cumberland, Maine; the marriage date was mistakenly given as 17 June 1801 in The Family Jordan.[8]  Thomas was born 29 March 1778 in Gorham, Cumberland, Maine.

Alexander Jellison

Alexander JELLISON is my first cousin eight times removed; we are related through his grandparents, my eighth grandparents Nicholas and Barbara (GREENE) JELLISON.  Alexander is the son of Joseph and Sarah (GRAY) JELLISON.  He was baptized at the First Church of Berwick 20 Jun 1723 in Berwick, Maine.[1]  He married Margaret NASON 31 August 1749 in Berwick, they had fifteen children:  George, James, Margaret, Eunice, Stephen, Nathaniel, David, Nancy, Alexander Jr., Olive, John, Joseph, Lydia, Benjamin and Sally.[2]  Alexander died before 13 Jun 1781 in South Berwick, Maine, he died intestate, and his probate was finalized 13 June 1782 in Berwick.[3]

 

I’ve noticed tracing the Jellison family that there are many variations of the name used commonly:  Jellison, Jellerson, Gillison, Gellison, and many more.  Good luck and share what you have learned I’d love to hear it.

John Abbott

John ABBOTT is my first cousin nine times removed; we are related through his grandparents John and Judith[1] (BLOTT) GREENE, my ninth great grandparents.  John was born 24 January 1673 in Kittery, Maine the fifth son of nine children to Thomas and Elizabeth (GREENE) ABBOTT.[2]  John was a weaver by trade.  He married first Abigail NASON 2 January 1694 in Berwick, Maine.[3]  He and Abigail had the following children:  Abigail, John, Samuel, Jonathan, Moses, Elizabeth, Sarah, Aaron and Joshua.  He married second Martha LITTLEFIELD in Berwick, Maine.  John died 23 July 1719 in Kittery, Maine.


[1] There is question as to whether this Judith/Julian/Julia BLOTT is the correct person, there are many names used as the wife all beginning with “J” and BLOTT as the surname.
