RE: Grosses
What I find interesting is that Clement is not named in any ancestors that I have found, and that is unusual. Isaac and Edmund are named quite frequently in the ancestry lines.

RE: Grosses
Hi, We are also from Ebenezer. Our line is 1. Simon c-1650 Hingham, MA; 2. Micah 1676 Hingham to Truro, MA; 3. Ebenezer 1713 Truro, MA, 4. Ebenezer 1737 Truro, MA to Orland, ME; 5. John 1766, Truro, MA to Orland, ME; 6. Edward Trueworthy 1796 Orland, ME;
7. Amos Treat 1832 Bucksport, ME; 8. Alexis Edward 1875 Frankfort, ME; 9. Lloyd Osborne 1908 Belfast, ME; 10. myself b. Camden, ME. Now living in Connecticut. Many say Simon was son of Clement but there is no proof of his birth. That is my brick wall. Do you have any more info than I do?

Hello Ben;

Moses was my husband 2nd Gr. Grandfather. Thank you
for taking time to photograph his headstone.
Since I don't know Maine, is this a private cemetery? Is there a way I could contact the

I hope to hear from you.

I'm a bit late, but, I want to "Thank You" for acquiring and posting the headstone photos. Great shots, both close-up and distant. I will use them in my research and credit you for the photos...

RE: Benjamin Gross
That's very thoughtful of you! Glad I could help. I don't think I have any Ben Grosses in my family tree.

RE: Benjamin Harris
I have seen that one, but my only issue is that he seems to still be alive in the 1870 Census, living with his son Benjamin and my relative Albion. It's a real mystery. At least at that time, we can't say the family was still cashing his Social Security checks in 1870...there wasn't any SS then.
Love your sense of humor.

RE: Benjamin Harris
No, Another good guess, though.
It would have been about 1869 or later, within about 15 years. Benjamin Harris Sr, born about 1786 or 7 was alive in 1850 at age 64 in Montville, Waldo ME. I don't find him in later censuses. He is the father of Benjamin, born 1819-20, and my relative Albion Franklin Harris. I am trying to find proof of all of their births, deaths, etc. Thank you for your help, though.
