In Reply to: Kingsbury DONNELL who m. Nancy Chase - Maine - who were his parents? by melissa1 of 687

I wanted to post this info in case anyone else is researching the name of Kingsbury DONNELL. I have found the following info from the Early Families of Sabattus, Androscoggin Co., ME -
Charles K. DONNELL (Kingsbury) b. 1822 farmer d. 1897, married Mary HARRIS b. 1827 d. 1909.
Children: Rebecca b. 1854 d. 1863
John E. b. 1856 d. 187
B. (Benjamin) Franklin b. 1852 d. 1910
Lucinda E. b. 1861 d. 1883
Emma b. 1868 d. 1910
(see the Davis - Bryant Cem in Webster/Sabattus, Androscoggin Co., ME)

Another entry has the following info which you will notice when compared to the above is basically the same-

Kingsbury DONNELL b. Feb. 9, 1822 farmer d. 1897 at 76 yrs. old Webster, ME son of Benjamin DONNELL and Rebecca DAVIS.
Kingsbury DONNELL married Mary HARRIS who was b. 1826 in Greene, ME d. June 22, 1909 at age 83 yrs. etc. Their home burned in Webster, ME just a few years before Kingsbury died. At the time of his death he was living with his son who owned a mill in Lisbon, ME.
Benjamin Franklin b. July 30, 1852
Rebecca J. b. March 11, 1854
John E. b. 1856
Charles DONNELL (no date given)

I hope this is helpful -
This Benjamin DONNELL b. 1787 who married Rebecca DAVIS, is a son of a Benjamin DONNELL who married Susannah DAVIS and he was a brother to my 5th grt. grandmother Elizabeth DONALD (as she spelled her name) and she was a daughter of Capt. Benjamin DONNELL and Sarah KINGSBURY, thus the naming of the sons "Kingsbury" throughout these branches.
In the marriage records of the Church of Christ (Congregational) in Buxton, York Co., ME comes the following info - Benjamin DONALD (as his name is spelled on record, just like his sisters name was spelled on her marriage record at this same church 2 years earlier),
Benjamin DONALD, Jr. of Buxton and Susanna DAVIS of Pepperrellborough were married on April 25, 1776 by the Rev. Paul COFFIN.
(my 5th grg. grandmother and this Benjamin's sister, Elizabeth DONALD married my 5th grt. grandfather James MOODY in this church on Jan. 13, 1774, both were listed as "of Buxton").
