Re: Jonathan Knowlton-Mary Blunt m. 1777 Maine

In Reply to: Jonathan Knowlton-Mary Blunt m. 1777 Maine by Maggie of 924

I know nothing about these people, but in looking at the LDS files I notice that only one has what appears to be a source one could easily check. There is one file for a Jonathan born on the date you specify which cites the town records of Farmington, Franklin Co., Maine as its source. You can click to the source information and get the FHL number for the microfilm of the original town records of Franklin. Oddly, that file did not give parents, and it is hard to imagine that the town records do not, but perhaps they don't. I did look at the Essex County, MA, VR and not only is there not a birth for Jonathan, but I believe there are not births for any of the two or three different couples offered in various LDS submitted files as parents of Jonathan.


This seems to be the only "solid" source the LDS site offers, so you might want to rent the film and look at the Farmington records.

There is a web page here

http://www.knowlton.org/genregn.htm#i179

which says that Jonathan's children were born at Farmington, so one would expect that he might have married there and that the same film could give you the details you're looking for. It would appear from the LDS records and various web pages that Mary Blunt and Mary Oakes are the same woman, apparently a widow when she married Jonathan.
