Capt Isaac W Chauncey b.1810 ME Asst Lighthouse Keeper

Capt. Isaac W. Chauncey, was a lighthouse keeper(assistant, 1867-1868); of Whaleback Lighthouse.

I'm trying to find the ancestry of Capt. Isaac born December 15, 1810 and died Nov. 18, 1871 in Kittery Point, ME. He married Augusta PHILLIPS born July 7, 1815 and died Mar 23, 1855.

1850 Census of York, Maine
Isaac Chauncey 39 Head
Augusta 35 Wife
Charles W 15
Sophronia 13
Mary 11
Julia 9
Lucy 2

Another book lists an Isaac H born in 1844. Maybe an infant who died.

1860 Census of York, Maine
Isaac W. Chauncey 50 Head
Olive 48 Wife
Mary H 21
Julia 18
HENRY 16 (I think we have the same guy.)
Laroy F. 11
Then some GUNNERSONS are listed in the same family. Perhaps Olive married a GUNNERSON.

Where did Isaac come from. Census says he was born in Maine. Who were his parents?
