RE: Ann F Wilson
Found a clue on the inernet - they may possibly be buried at Pine Grove Cemetery in Waterville. I will be reaching out to them. Thanks again!

RE: Ann F Wilson
Thank you so much for the research! Adam Wilson's second wife died in Chicago, but I have yet to locate her gravesite as well. She has deep roots in northern Maine (Ricker Family) and Adam was a prominent Baptist pastor with lifelong Maine connections as well - so I am fairly sure they are out there somewhere. Thanks again for everything - I really appreciate your time and assistance!

Blessings, Matt

Ann F Wilson
Thank you so much for the photo of Ann Wilson. My mother just returned from a trip home to Maine from Texas, and the one relative that she could not find was one of our first, Rev. Adam Wilson, who is Ann's husband. Any chance you remember seeing him buried there as well? Thank you so much for your time and assistance!

Capt. Thomas Wilson
Kelle,

Thank you so much for taking the time to photograph my 5x's great grandfather's headstone. He is my earliest relative to the United States (short history below). It means a lot to me to see his final resting place via the web. Blessings to you and yours,

Thomas Wilson came from Ireland when he was about fifteen years of age; arrived in Boston, and later came to Topsham, and when the Indian War was commenced, he returned to Boston. On peace, he returned to Topsham, and there tarried during the last celebrated French and Indian war, and till his decease. He was buried in the graveyard near the old meeting house. The old meeting house, is no longer standing. He was the only one of his family who came into this country. He was a noted hunter, explorer of what is now Farmington, ME. His son Thomas was in the English Navy in the Revolutionary War and died of wounds he received. Thomas Wilson married Ann Cochrane of Londonderry, N.H. and they had seven children.

From the History of Monmouth, Maine by cochran, page 11: Wilson Pond received its name from one Wilson, a hunter, from the town of Topsham or Brunswick, who was caught by the Indians and drowned near the island at the head of the pond. Another tradition is that he fell from his boat while intoxicated.
