Re: Dearborn/Noble in Baldwin, Maine

I don't know what became of Edith and her husband, but I can tell you who her ancestors are.

For more details of the first four generations, see my reply, "RE: Dearborn's of Maine" posted to this forum on 2/01/99. Here is the line:


JOHN[5] DEARBORN, baptized at Biddeford [ME] Congregational Church 17 Oct 1756 (MAINE HISTORICAL & GENEALOGICAL RECORDER, 7:8; hereafter MHGR); died Scarborough, ME 3 June 1833; mar at Scarborough 18 Jan 1781 (MHGR, 4:89), HANNAH BOOTHBY, who d at Scarborough, a pauper, 16 May 1835. He served in the Revolution in Col. Thomas Nixon's (6th) regiment from April 1777 to April 1780 and was honorably discharged. He then re-enlisted for the duration of the war, was soon wounded and was assigned to the Invalid Corps. There being little hope for his recovery, he received a furlough; on 13 Aug 1780 he was listed as "deserted" though in fact it was a misunderstanding. John was "too poor and too much broken down to make any attempt to have that entry corrected" (letter of S.V. Loring to Commissioner of Pensions, dated Saco 24 March 1853, in John's pension file). John's military service is completely detailed in MASSACHUSETTS SOLDIERS AND SAILORS IN THE REVOLUTION, 4:691; and in Mass. Archives, 294:23, 26, 32; and Mass. Muster & Pay Rolls, 54:4, File A. In a descriptive list of the men in Col. Nixon's regiment dated Highlands [Somerville, Mass.] 23 Feb 1780, he was described as age 22, stature 5'5", complexion dark, rank: private, term [of service]: during war. John applied for a pension on 10 Aug 1832, signing with his "X" mark, but was rejected on account of the "deserted" notation in his file. On 23 Nov 1852 his daughter Dorcas (Dearborn) Patterson and five of his grandchildren (including WILLIAM H.[7] DEARBORN) petitioned the government for reconsideration but were again rebuffed (Revolutionary War Pensions #R2815; National Archives).

JOHN[6] DEARBORN, b Scarborough circa 1780-90; d there 30 May 1835 (Scarborough VRs); married (1) by 1807, RELIEF ----, probably RELIEF BERRY, b Scarborough 27 Sept 1775, dau of Solomon & Hannah (----) Berry (MHGR, 16 [1889]: 310); he mar (2) at Scarborough 4 May 1820, PRUDENCE BRYANT, b circa 1788; d Saco, ME 23 June 1861, age 73, dau of ----. After John's death she mar (2) at Scarborough (int.) 12 Dec 1835, SAMUEL CHUTE/CHUTE. Prudence is buried in Laurel Hill Cemetery, Saco with her daughters Mary J. (Dearborn) Patch and Hannah L. Dearborn. John is always called "Junior" in Scarborough records to distinguish him from his father of the same name.

WILLIAM H.[7] DEARBORN, b Scarborough 25 Aug 1825. He mar (1) at Fryeburg, ME (cert.) 4 Jan 1847, PHEBE LEWIS, b ME circa 1828; living at Denmark, Oxford Co., ME 1850 Census. He mar (2) at Scarborough 26 July 1856, ALMEDA THORNE, b Limington, ME 31 Dec 1836; d Baldwin, ME 1 Feb 1906, age 69-1-1, angina pectoris, dau of Isaac and Eliza (Garland) Thorne. William was living with his first wife at Denmark, Oxford Co., ME in 1850 and was called a laborer. He was at Biddeford, York Co., ME, a carpenter in 1860 (household ##545-602), and was at West Baldwin, Cumberland Co., ME in the 1880 Census. He died at Baldwin, ME 8 Aug 1896, age 70-11-15, apoplexy, and is buried with Almeda in Sect. 11, Lot 96, West Baldwin Cemetery. William was one of the grandchildren and heirs of John[5] Dearborn who signed the unsuccessful petition of 23 Nov 1852 seeking the granting of a pension on account of John's Revolutionary War service.

EDITH EMMA[8] DEARBORN, b Baldwin, ME circa 1869; d ----; mar at West Baldwin 1 Feb 1893, CHARLES WALTER NOBLE, b Baldwin circa 1859; d ----; son of Charles R. and Olive (Libby) Noble. He was a farmer. Edith E. Noble of West Baldwin was listed as niece on the list of heirs in the petition for probate on the estate of her aunt, HANNAH L.[7] DEARBORN, who died at Lowell, Mass. 9 Oct 1903, intestate; petition dated 26 July 1904 (York Co. [ME] Probate, #52051). Children (Noble):

VICTOR M.[9] NOBLE, b Baldwin, ME 5 Sept 1895
LULU M.[9] NOBLE, b Baldwin 23 Jan 1899; d there 10 May 1899
A child
ANNIE VELLER[9] NOBLE, b Baldwin, ME 9 Dec 1902

I hope that this is helpful, and I would appreciate learning whatever you can tell me about Edith, her husband and children.
