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.

Joseph C. CALEF

Joseph is my first cousin seven times removed through Dominicus and Hannah (TRISTRAM) JORDAN.

Joseph C. CALEF was born 4 November 1724 and/or baptized 8 November 1724 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts.[1]   His parents were Joseph C. and Hannah (JORDAN) CALEF.  He died 31 May 1776 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[2]  He is interred at Milton Cemetery in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[3]  Joseph married Mehitable C. MILLER 12 September 1758 in Boston, Suffolk, Maine also listed as intention 21 September 1758 in Boston, Suffolk, Maine, which I believe was a typographical error.[4]  Mehitable was born 27 April 1735 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts other dates listed for her are 3 and 4 May 1735, I believe one of the May dates may be her baptism date.[5]  She was the daughter of Col. Samuel and Rebecca (MINOT) MILLER.  She died 13 April 1790 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts there is also recorded date 30 September 1790 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[6]  She is interred at Milton Cemetery in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[7]

Joseph and Mehitable had the following children;

  1. Joseph CALEF born 12 December 1758 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[8]  He died 29 March 1797 in Scarborough, Cumberland, Maine.[9]  He was a yeoman.[10]  He served in the Revolutionary War for twelve days guarding the shores of Maine in Capt. Jonah Voses’s Co. 1776.[11]  Joseph married Abigail MARR 29 March 1797 in Scarborough, Cumberland, Maine.[12]  Abigail is my second cousin seven times removed; we are related through Roger and Mary (CROSS) HILL.  Joseph and Abigail are not related by blood.
  2. Samuel CALEF born 12 December 1758 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[13] He died unmarried in Cape Elizabeth, Cumberland, Maine.[14]  He served in the Revolutionary War for twelve days guarding the shores of Maine in Capt. Jonah Voses’s Co. 1776.[15]
  3. Ebenezer Winter CALEF born 17 August 1760 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[16] He died 9 February 1829.[17]  He was a merchant in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts.[18]  Ebenezer married Sarah GIBSON 1 February 1800 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts.[19]
  4. Hannah CALEF born 1 March 1763 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[20] She died 1855 in Brooklyn, Kings, New York.  She is interred in Braintree, Norfolk, Massachusetts.  Hannah married Samuel Miller THAYER 24 July 1793 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts.[21]
  5. Mehitable Miller CALEF was born 1 September 1765 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[22] According to her death record she was born 30 September 1765 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[23]  She died in 26 October 1844 or November 1844 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[24]  Mehitable married Col. Thomas LEGETT.[25]  They had no children.
  6. Stephen Miller CALEF was born 9 September 1767 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[26] He died after 1820.[27]  Stephen married Rebecca 7 December 1807 in Cape Elizabeth, Cumberland, Maine by George E. Vaughan, justice of the peace; intentions filed 26 November 1807 in Cape Elizabeth, Cumberland, Maine.[28]
  7. Robert Jordan CALEF was born 9 May 1770 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[29] He died 22 March 1776 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[30]  He is interred at Milton Cemetery in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[31]
  8. Rebecca Thayer CALEF was born 17 September 1772 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts; although there are three dates listed as her birth date, 17 September 1772, 27 May 1772 and 17 September 1762, I believe that the 17 September 1772 date is the correct date since her birth records are showing that date the other dates are from other records recorded at a later time.[32] She died of dropsy 4 October 1858 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts.[33]  She is interred at Milton Cemetery in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[34]  Rebecca married Joseph Neals HOWE, they had no children.[35]
  9. John CALF was born 27 May 1776 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts; as with other children in the family there are numerous birth dates listed for him; 1767, 9 May 1776 and 27 May 1776, I believe the 27 May date to be correct since that is the date of both birth records on file.[36] He died 30 March 1777 in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[37]  He is interred at Milton Cemetery in Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts.[38]

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]

Clement JORDAN

Clement is my first cousin seven times removed through his grandparents, Dominicus and Hannah (TRISTRAM) JORDAN, my seventh great grandparents.  “By the will of his father, Clement became the owner of Richmond’s Island, where he made his residence and where a number of his children were born. He then removed to his farm on the mainland, just opposite to Richmond’s Island, and here his first wife Elizabeth died. Tradition says of Clement Jordan that he was always looked up to by his neighbors for advice, as a counselor in public trouble, and as a healer of disease. He was nearly always chosen on the committee of safety in the troublesome times with the Indians, and with the mother country previous to the Revolution. As a doctor, he had a widespread practice, treating diseases principally with herbs and roots collected by himself from the earth. His daughter Elizabeth has been heard to say that she with the rest of the children had spent days and weeks collecting them for him. His salves and ointments were made by himself or by his directions, and his patients came from far and near, even from Boston, to have their fever-sores, ulcers and other bad sores cured. As there was no way of traveling in those days, except on horseback or on foot, there were more or less persons stopping at the house the year round for advice and treatment. He was very zealous about attending meeting. His large families of children were always required to go, and having no conveyance, had to go afoot, the distance to church being five miles.”[1]

Some of my ancestors who died too young

Many of us believe that the death of child is becoming rarer than in the past, but ten million children die before their fifth birthday each year.  With numbers like that, death will touch each family in one way or another.  Leading causes are birth asphyxia, pneumonia, pre-term birth complications, diarrhea, malaria, measles and malnutrition.[1]  In modern history death was even more prevalent then it is today.  Children and youth were subject to many more diseases and physical hardships.  Plagues were a big part of childhood deaths, and many things that current medicines can cure easily, were deadly in those days.  Diet or lack thereof was another factor in childhood deaths.  30% of England’s children died before the age of 15 between the 16th and 18th centuries.  Death was higher in urban than rural areas.  Accidents were another common source of death, drowning was one of the number one causes of death in children.  Children were also killed when working in dangerous situations.  It was also rare to hire a doctor to care for family members, especially children in the average family, due to cost, if a doctor’s help was sought for, it was only to give a diagnosis, not the care of the child.[2]

 

With this information in mind here are ten children from my family tree:

 

Hannah CALEF was baptized 22 February 1735 at the New South Church, Boston, Suffolk, MA.[3] Hannah is the daughter of Joseph C. and Hannah (JORDAN) CALEF.  She died before 12 December 1742 in Boston, Suffolk, MA.  Hannah is my first cousin seven times removed through her grandparents, my seventh great grandparents Dominicus and Hannah (TRISTRAM) JORDAN. [her date of birth is unknown, only the date of baptism, and date of death is also unknown, only that she had a sister that was named Hannah baptized 12 December 1742.]

 

Antoine BOUTEILLIER was born February 1788 in Chambly, La Vallée-du-Richelieu, Quebec, Canada.  He was christened 15 February at St. Antoine de Lonqueuil, in Lonqueuil, Quebec, Canada.[4] He was the son of Joseph and Marie Veronique (ARCHAMBAULT) BOUTHEILLER.   He died 18 December 1802 in Lonqueuil, Quebec, Canada.[5]  He is interred at St. Antoine de Lonqueuil, in Lonqueuil, Quebec, Canada.  He was my fourth great granduncle, related through his parents.

 

Elizabeth A. JELLISON was born February 1843 according to her headstone or 20 February 1837 in Waltham, Hancock, ME according to The Family Jordan book.[6]  She was the daughter of Joseph H. and Abigail (JORDAN) JELLISON.  She died 20 July 1853 in Waltham, Hancock, ME.[7]  She is interred at Hillside Cemetery in Waltham, Hancock, ME.[8]  She is my third great grandaunt through her parents, and my fifth cousin eight times removed through her fourth great grandparents John and Elizabeth (BIRCHARD) ALCOCK, my ninth and twelfth great grandparents.

 

Eva M. JELLISON was born 13 January 1853 in ME.[9]  She is the daughter of Moses Adams and Clarinda R. (GILES) JELLISON.  She died 13 February 1862 in Waltham, Hancock, ME.[10]  Her death notice appeared in the Ellsworth American 28 February 1862.  She is my first cousin four times removed through her grandparents Joseph H. and Abigail (JORDAN) JELLISON and my sixth cousin seven times removed through her fifth great grandparents John and Elizabeth (BIRCHARD) ALCOCK, my ninth and twelfth great grandparents.  Copied from The Ellsworth American February 28, 1862 edition Friday DIED Waltham-13th inst., Eva M, daughter of Moses A. Jellison, aged 9 years. “The flowers that bloomed the brightest, Are soonest doomed to fade; The forms that move the lightest, In earth are soonest laid.”

 

Louis LAGÜE was born 11 October 1727 in Chambly, La Vallée-du-Richelieu, Quebec, Canada.  He was the son of Michel and Catherine (LECLERC) LAGÜE SANCARTIER.  He died 20 February 1728 in Chambly, La Vallée-du-Richelieu, Quebec, Canada.  He is my sixth great granduncle related through his parents.

 

Georgianna T. SNELL was born 1 March 1851 in Ellsworth, Hancock, ME.[11]  She is the daughter of Albion King and Martha Jane (JELLISON) SNELL.  She died of diphtheria on 18 March 1862 in Waltham, Hancock, ME.[12]  She is interred at Hillside Cemetery in Waltham, Hancock, ME.[13]  She is my first cousin four times removed through her grandparents Joseph H. and Abigail (JORDAN) JELLISON and my sixth cousin seven times removed through her fifth great grandparents, my ninth and twelfth great grandparents John and Elizabeth (BIRCHARD) ALCOCK.

 

Abbey E SNELL was born 24 October 1852 in Portland, Cumberland, ME.[14]  She was the daughter of Albion King and Martha Jane (JELLISON) SNELL.  She died of diphtheria on 6 August 1862 in Waltham, Hancock, ME, just 19 days after her sister Georgianna (above).[15]  She is interred at Hillside Cemetery in Waltham, Hancock, ME.[16]  She is my first cousin four times removed through her grandparents Joseph H. and Abigail (JORDAN) JELLISON and my sixth cousin seven times removed through her fifth great grandparents, my ninth and twelfth great grandparents John and Elizabeth (BIRCHARD) ALCOCK.
