I really enjoyed your site. It's fascinating. I've just begun researching my family so I haven't yet determined how my Elizabeth Cousins born c. 1752 in Eden, ME who married John Thomas c. 1776 connects with your Cousins line but I'm assuming the link is there somew

So very nice to find and use your information. Thank you. My family is related to Andrew Knight. We have quite a strong connection to him, in fact my oldest brother is named after him. My family also has a deep and passionate interest in the Civil War. When we found out that Andrew was not only in it, but a major player in some of the most bloody fighting know to date, we became interested almost to a fault. My brother Alex and I have found out a great deal about him. If at ANY time you would like to speak with us, please please give us a call. My mother has always thought us to know and remember where we come from, and who we are, she always thought that Andrew would be proud to know that his ancestors took such an interest in who HE was and the things HE elieved in, and fought and suffered. I know they would love to talk to you. Thank you again for helping us find our roots, and I sincerely hope to speak with you in the future.

Like your page - colorful and full of varied information and links. May even be connected distantly on my mother's side, as well, though didn't see any direct links in the French-language genealogy page. My brother Christopher Welton Babbidge of Kennebunk Maine has done the recent family research. I'm going to show your page to him - perhaps he's already familiar with it! Have a great day, and thank you for your work!

My grandfather,Amasa Lane,was the 9th child born to Hardy Lane and Lavonia Stinson.

I descend from Isaac Cousins who died in the poorhouse in Boston 23 Jul 1702 through his son Abraham b 22 Aug 1665 d 28 Feb 1728, married Mary Eames, daughter of Robert and Elizabeth Eames. Here's what I have on Isaac: Isaac Cousins was an expert gunsmith and locksmith. He and his wife Elizabeth appear to be people of education since they both signed various legal documents. The earliest record of him is living in Rowley, Massachusetts, in 1647 when it was recorded that Samuel Fogg was apprenticed to him. New London, Connecticut, offered him inducements to settle there in 1651 (a skilled craftsman was a valuable asset to a community), but he stayed in Rowley until 1652 when he moved to Haverhill, Massachusetts. Haverill had voted on 1 December 1651 to give permission to Isaac Cousins and others of the town who might join him permission to build a sawmill. Court records in this time period give evidence of his consistent ill-luck in horse trading. He participated in the division of land in Haverhill in 1652 and 1653, then transferred his business to Ipswich. He sold his house in Ipswich and moved to Boston, leaving several lawsuits behind him - in one the town sued him for bringing in an old woman and leaving her there without providing for her. Elizabeth died in Boston and he married Ann Hunt, widow of John Edwards. On 16 December 1659 he was received as a tradesman at Portsmouth, New Hampshire. He was back in Boston in 1668. He had some dealings with North Yarmouth, Maine, and witnessed several deeds for them in Boston. The town committee of North Yarmouth offered him a tract of land in 1681 "hee or his sonn ingaging to come & dwell ye, & to accommodate the inhabitants by ye work of his Trade" but continued Indian hostilities prevented him from accepting the offer. He experienced real poverty in his later years. Was warned out (a method of getting rid of undesirables and dissenters) of Dorchester in 1691 "having a long time bin an inhabitant of Boston and now being aged." He tried to bring a lawsuit without fees, stating he was "an ancient inhabitant of this country�fallen much into decay and waxen so poore�" in Boston in 1696 against Richard Priest for withholding household goods which "were in the house where the plaintiff and Martha his late wife lived next to t e mill bridge on the north side thereof." Finally, on his death record 23 July 1702 we find the old man, 74 years old, a town charge.

I think that mine came down from the NY/NJ area in the late 1700's, but have not made that conclusive connection.... ..yet. I read an old genealogy that connects the KY Formans to William Forman, Lord Mayor of London, about 1536-37. I'd love to hear from you if there is a connection or if you have any info. Nice WebPage!
