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]
