Re: Dolley Family of Maine

In Reply to: Re: Dolley Family of Maine by Susan Dolley-Burgess of 68

I have a Dorcas Dolley, m. Moses Twitchell, 27 NOV 1781, Gray, Cumberland, Maine*

Then from unsourced material, I show Dorcas as a daughter of John Dolley and Sarah Goddard, born about 1766. (She died after 21 DEC 1850, New Portland, Somerset, Maine). Her husband Moses Twitchell changed his and his family's surname to Mitchell in 1828 [Sourrce: Maine Legislature], so her name at time of death was Dorcas Mitchell.

Can anyone confirm that Dorcas Dolley is the daughter of John Dolley and Sarah Goddard?

Also, I have found an article in the "Genealogical Dictionary of Maine and New Hampshire" suggesting that John's parents are John Dolley and Elizabeth Follett (Daughter of John Follett and Sarah, Kittery, ME)

Any other info connecting? Please help.
Thanks.
