John Patten JELLISON

John is my first cousin six times removed; we are related through his grandparents, my sixth great grandparents, Benjamin and Agnes (PATTEN) JELLISON.  John and wife Susan were enumerated with one or more children in the 1850, 1860 and 1870 censuses taken in Ellsworth, Hancock, ME.[1]

John Patten JELLISON was born 10 May 1803 in Ellsworth, Hancock, ME.  He died 15 February 1876 in Ellsworth, Hancock, ME.  He was interred at Nicolin Cemetery [also known as North Ellsworth Cemetery] in Ellsworth, Hancock, ME.[2]  John married Susan TOURTELLOT in 1837.  Susan was born 1807 in ME.  She was the daughter of Abraham and Rebecca (MADDOX) TOURTELLOT.  Susan died due to a fracture of the thigh on 19 January 1898 in Ellsworth, Hancock, ME.[3]  She was interred at South Ellsworth Cemetery, Ellsworth, Hancock, ME.

John and Susan had the following children:

  1. Malissa was born 3 October 1836 and died 11 October 1836. She was interred at Nicolin Cemetery [also known as North Ellsworth Cemetery] in Ellsworth, Hancock, ME.[4]
  2. Julia Ann was born September 1834. She died 19 August 1835.  She is interred at Nicolin Cemetery [also known as North Ellsworth Cemetery], in Ellsworth, Hancock, ME.[5]
  3. Arvilla was born 1838 in Maine. Arvilla married Sans B. SALIBURY 30 April 1857 in Otis, Hancock, ME.  Sans was born 8 September 1824 in Trenton, Hancock, ME.  He is the son of Aaron and Margaret (BUNKER) SALISBURY.  Sans died 8 August 1906 in Otis, Hancock, ME. [I’m unsure what happened to Arvilla, it seems that Sans married again two years after their marriage or marriage intention and had many children with a woman named Margaret A., is she the same woman as Arvilla?  I’ve checked divorce records, death records and a few other types of records and no Arvilla have died with the SALISBURY surname in Maine to this day.]
  4. Rebecca P. was born in 1845. She married Asahel T. ROWELL 23 March 1867 in Holden, Penobscot, ME.[6] Ashel was born in 1839.  He is the son of Stephen and Mary C. ROWELL.  [I believe they moved to Indiana, Ohio or other western area, as there are no records of them in the state of Maine after their marriage.]
  5. Adelaide P. was born 1848 in Ellsworth, Hancock, ME. She died 28 June 1878 in Ellsworth, Hancock, ME. She was interred at Nicolin Cemetery [also known as North Ellsworth Cemetery], in Ellsworth, Hancock, ME.[7]   Adelaide married George Washington WENTWORTH 30 March 1876 in Maine.  George was born 24 February 1841 in Ellsworth, Hancock, ME.  He was the son of John and Mary (ALLEY) WENTWORTH.  George died 1914 in Ellsworth, Hancock, ME.  [Adelaide’s mother Susan moved in with George after her death to help with raising her daughter Carrie.  I don’t know how long she Susan lived in his home as he married again, and Susan didn’t die until 1898]

Captain Joseph Jellison

Captain Joseph JELLISON is my fifth great grandfather; he is the second of eleven children born to Benjamin and Agnes (PATTEN) JELLISON.  He was baptized along with his brother, 22 September 1754 in Biddeford, Maine[1], he was most likely born after 21 Jan 1753, the baptism of his older brother William, it is likely he and Benjamin were twins, there is also a three year age gap between William and sister Elizabeth, making twins more likely.  He served in the Revolutionary War (see below).[2]  He married Maria JORDAN about 1780 in Maine.  Although Maria has the surname Jordan, I can find no connection to my Jordan ancestors at this time.  Joseph and Maria had three children:  Joseph H., Sally and Sylvanus.  Joseph died 17 July 1827 in Mariaville, Maine and was buried on the family farm in Waltham, Maine.

 

There is some question as to the correct Joseph Jellison when it comes to Revolutionary War records.  There are two Joseph’s listed in the Massachusetts Soldiers and Sailors of the Revolutionary War:

Vol. 8:739: Jellerson, Joseph, Biddeford.  Capt. Samuel Leighton’s co., Col. Ebenezer Francis’s regt.; return of officers to be commissioned, dated Sept. 23, 1776; reported not joined; company made up from Col. Frost’s, Col. Sawyer’s, and Col. Jordan’s regts., Brig. Moulton’s brigade.

Vol. 8:740:  Jellison, Joseph.  Private, in a detachment from Capt. George Haslen’s co., Col. Benjamin Foster’s (Lincoln Co.) regt.; service, 17 days; detachment marched to Machias three different times and served in Capt. Daniel Sullivan’s co.  Roll sworn to Feb. 28, 1778.

 

I believe the first to be the correct Joseph as that is where he lived; he never lived in Lincoln county from any records I can find.  Until I can find a complete listing of the units made up by local or who was in each unit, looking for siblings and neighbors, I need to believe that he is one of these two Joseph’s.

William Jellison

William JELLISON is my first cousin six times removed; we are related through his grandparents Benjamin and Agnes (PATTEN) JELLISON.  William is one of fourteen children born to Major John and Elizabeth Tarbox (MILLIKEN) JELLISON on 5 September 1792 in Ellsworth, Maine.  William married Julia Ann TISDALE 12 May 1721.  William and Julia had ten children:  Charles William, Edward Augustus, Caroline Leonard, Mellon, George Burbank, Zachariah, Webster, Julia Tisdale, John Dean, and Seth Tisdale.   William was enumerated with his wife and children in the 1850 and 1860 censuses in Dedham and Ellsworth, Maine respectively.[1]   William died 23 July 1866 and is interred at Woodbine Cemetery in Ellsworth.

 

Due the commonness of his name, I cannot pinpoint him in most records (I have in my records over twelve with the same name living in the same general area).  The 1800 through 1840 censuses do not list other family members, thus making it hard to determine the correct person.  I will keep looking for more information on him.  I am hoping when searching for more information on one of his siblings that I will find more information on him in that way.  Stay tuned for more to come.
