Hi Laura!

It looks like we may have to modify your line a bit!!

I wrote to the Fernald mailing list on Rootsweb and I got the follwing response.

Hi Bob!

The Jonathan Fernald you say that was married to Martha “Patty” Randall I have information on that states he was the son of Abraham/Amos Fernald and the grandson of Abraham and Mary (Trickey) Fernald (which is my line). They had 10 children:

Lydia married a Stevens
George married Mary Kneeland
Thomas married Lois Kneeland
Arthur Randall (M.D.) married Rebecca Marsh [Canaan, Somerset, ME area]
Jonathan W., Jr., married Martha T. Files and had 10 children [Troy, Waldo, ME area]

Henry Nelson Fernald, son of George H. Fernald and Arvesta Jane Smith was married to Roxanna “Roxy” Thorndike Hall and I know of two of their children. They are also part of the Troy, Waldo, ME group. Henry Nelson’s father George H. is the son of a Henry N. Fernald and Mary Elizabeth Holt, they lived in Clinton, Kennebec, ME area. But so far have not connected him with enough definite proof.

Does any of this help?


...........end of msg......................

It looks like I had most of Jonathans male children correct! But as I stated in an earlier posting there were some discrepancies concerning Jonathan.
I am trying to get more info on Abraham/Amos for you.
and confirm Debbie's data. But it appears she may be correct. If so, your line from Renald goes as follows:

1. Renald/Reginald Fernald and Joanna Warbarton
2. John Fernald and Mary Norman Spinney
3. Thomas Fernald and Mary Thompson
4. Abraham Fernald and Mary Trickey
5. Abraham/Amos Fernald
6. Jonathan Fernald and Martha Randall
7. Sherburne Furnald and Serina/Martha
8. Ira Furnald and Mary Catterson

I will keep you posted,
