Well by now you may have figured out your Adeline Billington Problem.
On the Original recording of the birth of Adeline and Abigail Billington In the Wayne ,MAine Vital Records they are listed as the children of Seth Billington and Mrs Polly. Clearly the children of Seth and Mary(Polly) Norris as they were born prior to the Marriage of Seth and Polly Knowlton Billington.
Additionally the children of Seth and Polly are listed Separately as refered to as Book 2 pge 6 and This other Couple are listed as Seth Billington b. Middleborough Sept. 26 1784 and Mrs Polly Billington born in Northwood (NH) Sept 5,1784 with children Aseth Page and Ruth Page born Northwood Aug 17,1809. The Northwood records however only record the birth of Ruth.
This issue is further complicated as some well intentioned soul mixed the families together on one page . Many Wayne "original" Records were hand copies of earlier records,and later individuals added what they thought they knew, as Wifes maiden name for example. Thus the Wayne, Records are a MESS.
As you go back beyond the Seth Problem The Mayflower family In Progress by Hodge ,Harriet Woodbury, Published by the Genealogical Society of Mayflower Descendents 1988 will go to the Mayflower Billingtons, and Eleanor Warren Goes To Richard Warren
If you discover Where the birth of Aseth is recorded or more children clearly for Seth and Polly Knowlton Billington I am collecting. Also would like your sources for the marriage of Adeline . Hattie
