Hello Kate,

I wish I could delete the previous 2 messages, but this is what I have found for you, but unfortunately I have NO Alexander Taintor's listed in either book, that I can find at this time, I will keep looking, but Ruth Robbins may be a clue.:

Alexander W. (Washington) Taintor who first married Lavina Benson on Sept. 24, 1854, she was born 08 Nov. 1831. After Lavina Benson died, Alexander W. Taintor must have married an Ellen & returned to MA before 1880 Census. Note, son Edward A. says he was born in NH, so "Loring A." who listed MA, may have been mistaken or it is an error & perhaps he was born in MA and this is where Lavina Benson Taintor died. She was born in NH. Marilyn, see below:

So, the line thus far is:

1. Alexander T. Taintor & Ruth ROBBINS. They had Alexander W. Taintor on Nov. 08, 1831 in Deerfield, Franklin, MA.

2. Alexander W. Taintor (b. ca 1832) married Lavina BENSON on 28 Sept. 1854, they had James A. & Edward A. (listed in 1880 Census), then in Feb. 1866 Lavina Benson Taintor died, she would be the mother of "Loring"/LOREN (1880 Census misspelling) A. Taintor" listed age 14 in 1880 Census with Alexander & Ellen. The other children listed would be the children, I suppose, be the children of Ellen & Alexander Taintor.

3. Loren (aka "Loring" A. in 1880 Census) Taintor married Grace Richardson and they had Loren Russell Taintor on March 18, 1897, he died March 15, 1995.

4. Loren Russell Taintor (Loren A., Alexandet W., Alexander T. Taintor)

History is coming together:

Lavina (Benson) Taintor died Feb. 1866, she was married to Alexander W. Taintor, but this man Alexander Wasshington Taintor is well documented.
