According to: "The Doane Family", by Alfred Alder Doane, printed by Salem Press Co., Salem, Mass, 1902, page 90, 91, Family #49 it states:

"EBENEZER DOANE 4 (Ebenezer 3, Ephraim 2, John 1)was born at Truro, Mass., Aug. 22, 1706 and was baptized there by Rev. John Avery, Sept. 13, 1713. He married Elizabeth Skillings, who was born Apr. 25, 1713, the daughter of Samuel 3 and Aroda (Haley) Skillings (John,2 Thomas,1) of Kittery, and Falmouth, Me. Mr. Doane went to Falmouth perhaps as early as the spring of 1739, when seven or eight families, among whom were the principal inhabitants, removed from Provincetown to Casco Bay. He was probably a seafaring man. The settled at Long Creek, Cape Elizabeth. After the death of her husband, of which we have no record, Mrs. Doane went to live with her daughter, Joanna Berry, at Buckfield, where she died very aged. But little can be learned of Ebenezer Doane. The probate records were burned in the Portland fire. I copy the history of this family from the Maine Genealogical Recorder.
