Trying to figure out my CHESLEY links...can you help?

I have an Asa CHESLEY b.c1758 where I don't know who married a Catherine ____ b.c1760 where I don't know.
They supposedly had a daughter Catherine Chesley b.c1785 who married Dec. 11, 1810 in Edgecomb, Maine to Stephen COFFIN. Stephen COFFIN was born 1783 in Pownalboro, Maine a son of Benjamin COFFIN and Anna KINCAID. Stephen died Nov. 25, 1846 in Wiscasset, ME (which is what Pownalboro became known as). Stephen's COFFIN lineage line goes back to Tristram 1 COFFIN of Newbury, MA. (Stephen > Benjamin > Benjamin & Miriam Woodman > Stephen & Sarah Atkinson COFFIN - my 7th grt. grandparents > Tristram > Tristram 1 COFFIN).
Can anyone help me fill in the blanks on this Asa's Parents and grandparents and where he was born or his family from etc. Also if you have his wife's last name that would be great too.

The other CHESLEY's I have in my family tree are Elizabeth "Betty" CHESLEY who married George BOWLBY around c1788 in Annapolis Co., Nova Scotia.
Elizabeth was born 1766 Annapolis Co., Nova Scotia, IF my info is correct that is. Elizabeth's parents are listed as Maj. Samuel CHESLEY b. April 26, 1738 Durham, Strafford Co., NH and Eleanor MOORE b.c1740 (where I don't know).
George BOWLBY was born c1760 poss. Morristown, New Jersey son of Richard BOWLBY and Mary DRAKE.

They supposedly had a son Abraham BOWLBY b. June 10, 1792 in Wilmot, Annapolis Co., Nova Scotia who married May 12, 1818 in Granville, Annapolis Co., NS to Rachel PHINNEY.
Rachel PHINNEY's parents were Zaccheus Phinney, Jr. and Lois STARRATT who was of Irish descent from Falmouth, Cumberland Co., Maine.

Another daughter of Maj. Samuel and Eleanor's Achsah BOWLBY b.1796 married July 19, 1817 to William Smith CHESLEY.

Maj. Samuel and Eleanor CHESLEY also had a daughter named Hepzibah CHESLEY b. April 23, 1773 in Granville, Annapolis Co., Nova Scotia who married May 18, 1796 to Elijah PHINNEY.

This Bowlby family line is linked to my MOODY/MUDIE family who supposedly came to Nova Scotia by way of New Jersey as well, so I am trying to gather as much info on the connecting family lines as possible.

Still another CHESLEY link in my family tree is that of Rachel CHESLEY b.c1732 daughter of Ichabod CHESLEY and Temperance _____? Rachel married Surplus MARR in 1764 prob. in York Co., Maine somewhere. Surplus MARR was born Sept. 15, 1729 in Kittery, York, Maine son of John 1 MARR and Catherine SURPLUS. Surplus MARR died April 8, 1816 in So. Berwick, York, Maine.

If anyone can help fill in the blanks on my CHESLEY family lines I would be most greatful.
Thank you for any info at all.
