Does Anyone know if a Benjamin Drouin son of Joseph Drouin and Catherine BOLDUC of St. Francis, Bearce or Beauce Co., Quebec, Canada, changed his name to Abner DELAWARE?
It is said that he and his brother George Drouin came into MAINE from Quebec. George I believe settled in the Penobscot Co. area of Maine and Benjamin / Abner ended up in Brunswick, Cumberland Co., Maine.
Abner DELAWARE is found in the 1850 and 1860 Brunswick, ME census. He married a woman named Catherine STANWOOD and they had children.
Abner lost an arm in a mill accident (lumber mill? cloth mill?), and afterward became the gas lamplighter for the city of Brunswick.
If Anyone has info on this family Especially any known Native American links, PLEASE leave a message here and I will find it.
Thank You
