FAMILY OF JOHN GUPTILL (1726 to ---- ) and Abigail GOODWIN

John GUPTILL, bapt. 26 May, 1726 m, Abigail Goodwin 16 Nov, 1749, possibly dau. of William Goodwin & Abigail Stone [pg. 48 Goodwins of Kittery, Me, by J, S. Goodwin, published 1898], d. in Gouldsboro, where he lived after moving from Berwick, Me. with six sons and three daughters about 1770. The three oldest sons moved to the Island of Grand Manan. The other six children married in and around Gouldsboro and always lived there.

a. Abijah Guptill; b. 1754 m. 1778 Mary Uraun d. 1820 (Note: Grand Manan records show b. 1751- d. 1815)

b. William Guptill; b. 1756 m. 6 June 1777 Jane Downs, d. 7 May 1803

c. Susanna Guptill; b.1758 m.9 Sept. 1770 William Whitaker, d. ----

d. John Guptill; b. 1761 m. 1782 Mary Woodman d. ----

e. Thomas Guptill; b. 1768 m. 1790 Sarah Wilsond.

f. Amos Guptill; b. 1770 m. 1794 Abigail Uraun d. 1798

g. Nehum Guptill; b. 1772 m. Sarah Rolf) d. 1798

h. Mary Guptill; b. 1775 m. 1798 (Jessie Pray; he was in the Revolutionary War), d. ----

i. Fanny Guptill; b. 1777 m. 1798 Ben Spurling d. ----.

Two children of John and Abigail Goodwin died in infancy.

The date of the birth of John is usually given as 1730. The records of the church at S. Berwick give the Baptism as 1726. I think this must be correct. The "Goodwin" family gives the m. of John and Abrigail as 1749, possibly the date of birth of Abijah may be also a few years earlier. The above dates are from the records of Mrs. John Stearns of Chicago and Mrs. Bragg of Gouldsboro, sent by her daughter Mrs. Magill.

2. Ann GOODWIN b. 1760 (Where?) Married James MAHAN, b. 1755 near Winchester, Va. Rev. soldier, Indian spy in and around Fort Pitt 1775-77 while living on the Monongahela River. Was she sister to John GOODWIN who lived in Fayette Co. Pa. during this time?
John GOODWIN was b. 7 Feb. 1746, Baltimore, Md.; parents Benjamin GOODWIN and Hannah URGHUART. Was Ann's full name Nancy Ann GOODWIN? Early records give James? wife as Ann, later records as Nancy. Some say this the same person. They went to Greene Co. Tn. ca 1778 where he raised a Company and was a Capt. under Col. SEVIER, during the Indian Wars. Moved to Knox-Whitley Co.

3. In his research Mr. LEWIS, (Vol. 2, Issue 3), ran across this confusing genealogical puzzle:
Mary GOODWIN who md. Richard LORD Dec. 1707 is listed as the d/o James and Sarah (THOMPSON) GOODWIN in Lord Family History, P.44; in Gen. Dict. of Me, and N.H., p. 272 as d/o Thomas A Elizabeth (BUTLER) GOODWIN, and in Old Kftterv and Her Families on p. 454 as the d/o Thomas and Mehltable (PLAISTED) GOODWIN.
This proves how errors are often contained in family histories. Does anyone have documentation of her parentage? Perhaps it is in the church records in South Berwick. If anyone can help with this puzzle, Contact: The New England Project; include a copy of this query

4. Information on Sam Haze GOODWIN wanted. Parentage unknown. He md. Helen Eddora G0WEN in the 1860's. Poss. from Rochester, N.H.
Contact: The New England Project; please include a copy of this query.

5. Silas and Margaret Wadlin GOODWIN were md. 23 Oct. 1800 and lived in Shapleigh and Acton, Maine. Their sons Moses, Aaron, and Sylvester (and I think David, too,) went to Essex Co. Mass. in the 1840's.
Moses d. 20 Aug. 1851, his wife, Catherine CLARK, d. 12 May 1847 in Gloucester, and they left 3 sons:

a. Nathaniel Clark GOODWIN b. 1840 Essex Co.

b. David Silas GOODWIN, b. 1843 Gloucester

c. George Frank GOODWIN, b. 3 Aug. 1845 Gloucester

Does anyone know of the descendants of Aaron and Sylvester GOODWIN of Essex, Co. Mass? Where did Moses GOODWIN live in 1850? Where did he die?
Where did George Frank GOODWIN live in 1850?
Nathaniel and David GOODWIN are thought to have gone to Calif. Nathaniel GOODWIN md. Sylvia RIDLEY in Dover, N.H. Does anyone know of this family?
Silas and Margaret GOODWIN are listed in the 1850 census in Acton, Me. They seem to leave Acton after 1851. Where did they go?
Contact: The New England Project; please include a copy of this query.

6. Information wanted on Jeremiah GOODWIN, b. 1772, s/o Joseph GOODWIN, came from Wells to Canaan, Me. His wife was Phanier "Fanny" POWERS, b. 1772 in Deer Isle, Me. (Powers genealogical records say Sydney, Me.) They had 5 children, the oldest - Clement is said to have been the first child born in Canaan. He md. Sarah "Sally" THOMAS and they had 8 children;

1. John b. 1838, Hartland, Me. md. (1) Lydia BURRILL (2) Adelaide FLANDERS (my ancestor). John and Lydia had son Charles and his son lives in Valley City, Ohio. John and 2nd wife, Adelaide had dau. Mertie, b. 1872, and [she] md. Jedediah PARKMAN (my great-grand-father).

Other of ch. of Clement and Fanny were:

2. Fanny b. 1840, md. NICHOLS;

3. Thomas b. 1842;

4. Charles b. 1844;

5. Sarah, b. 1847, m. SMITH;

(Cont'd, from Vol. 3, #1)

Eldridqe Almon GOODWIN was their sixth child, born 20 Dec. 1871 and died 25 Jan. 1954 at age 72. He was Road Commissioner in Eliot for many years.
I remember he had a Model T Ford with the gas control on the steering wheel. His nickname as a boy was 'Stubby'. He married 28 July 1893, Caroline Lulu PERKINS, who had a child, Edith, and then they had 5 children, Carrie, Leon, Earle, Rachel and Roland Arthur. Roland is still living [January, 1981] at his father's former home at corner of Cedar Rd. and Rt. 103 in Eliot.
The seventh child was Hattie Eliza, born 29 Jan. 1873 and died 19 Jan. 1954 at age 81. She was severely crippled with arthritis in her later years. Her husband was Job MEADS, who was born in England. They were married. 27 June 1894. They had two children, Beatrice and Frank. Beatrice was handicapped with polio but was able to work in the office of the electric power company in Portsmouth.
Lilla Belle was the eighth child, born 15 Nov. 1874, and died 11 July 1964. She married Aaron Burr COLE (date unknown) who was a judge at one time. They had seven children, Myra Ellen, Mildred Frances, Hollis Burr, Hosmer Lawrence, Marion Goodwin, Hobart Atherton, Hoitt Sumner, and Lena Gertrude. Hollis became a lawyer and Lana served in the State Legislature.
The ninth to be born was Fred Ernest, born 11 Oct. 1876 and died at age 83, 15 May 1959. Married Ethel STACY, 29 June 1901 and they had 6 children, Ernest, Marjorie, Elizabeth, Frederick, Kenneth and Richard. He lived on Cedar Rd, Eliot near the railroad track where Rt. 236 now is. This home burned.
The tenth of their children was Daniel Albert, born 21 Mar. 1878 and died 23 Dec. 1943 at age 65. He was run over by a car on the Portsmouth Navy Yard. He md. Mary Alice MARTIN, 1 June 1904; they lived in the home of his father which they inherited. They had four children, Alexander, Daniel Albert, Jr., Margaret Alice and Mildred. Margaret lived in the family home with her husband and 7 children until she contracted multiple sclerosis and had to sell It. The house is now owned by a family named MORIARTY. They are in process of restoring the house to original condition; beams have been uncovered and old fireplaces opened.
Grace was the llth child, born 7 May 1880 and died 1 Oct. 1881. Her untimely death must have caused the family great sadness.
Manie was their 12th to be born, 20 Feb. 1882, and died 18 Feb. 1961. She married John EMERY on the 24th of June 1903. They lived across from her oldest sister, Hannah Gertrude (Gertie) on Goodwin Rd. not far from Ambush Rock, in a house which John had moved there. When first married they lived in the house across from the GOODWIN homestead and their first child was born there. They had 6 children, John Maynard, Rina, Ella Gertrude, Ruth, Ernest and Sherman.
Daniel GOODWIN died of a heart attack, 26 Jan. 1916, in the shed behind the house and was discovered by his grandson, Daniel Albert, Jr. who was seven at the time. His wife died 22 April 1923. They are burled in Mt. Pleasant Cemetery, Eliot, Me. He was 83 at his death and she was 80.
The birth dates of all Daniel's children and several marriage records were written in the family Bible the genealogical pages of which are in my [Alice sharp] possession.

Not having the privilege of knowing my grandfather because he died before I was born, it has been necessary to depend on genealogical facts gathered in my family research and from memories shared with me by relatives who knew him.

My 2nd cousin one generation removed, Ralph GOODWIN, son of Millard and wife Frances L. BRIGGS wrote to me telling what he remembered of my grandfather. The following is quoted directly from his letter:
"I recall two things vividly about your grandfather. One day my father and I were cutting firewood with a circular power saw. I was taking the wood away from the saw when (Gramp) came along to talk to me and he was absent mindedly going to rest his hand on the revolving saw. I knocked his hand away but he still got a very bad cut. He looked at me in amazement as he did not realize what he had done. Your Uncle Bert took him in the house and took care of it. I also remember that he was lying dead in his home on the night of the Marshal House fire in York Harbor and we could see the reflection of it in the sky."
I wish that I had known my grandfather. He and his wife were certainly a most fruitful bough on the family tree. They had 41 grandchildren and an unknown number of great-grandchildren. He must have been proud of his family. He was an honest, hard working man and provided well for them.
By Alice B. Goodwin Sharp


Information for the Goodwins obtained from Davis' Ancient Landmarks of Plymouth, page 119 of Part II; Genealogies.
Information regarding the LeBaron Genealogy is from a book called Descendants of Francis LeBaron of Plymouth, published at 73 Federal Street, Boston, in 1904, by T.R. Marvin and Son, Printers. The book was written by Mary LeBaron Stockwell, and is a excellent genealogy of the LeBaron family. In it are all these Goodwins who were related to them. The line follows:

1. Christopher GOODWIN of Charlestown, Massachusetts. He was probably born in England about 1620 as his eldest son was born in 1643 in this country.

2. John GOODWIN, born in 1644; married 1689

3. John GOODWIN, born in 1677; no data about family.

4. Nathaniel GOODWIN, born 14 May, 1724 in Boston; died 21 May, 1771; married 25 December, 1746 Lydia LeBaron, born 3 December, 1724, d. 24 March, 1801, daughter of Lazarus LeBaron of Plymouth, at Plymouth.

They had eleven children; their ninth child was Francis LeBaron GOODWIN, the surgeon, born 29 September, 1762; married in his 25th year at Plymouth, Massachusetts Jane Prince [ROBBINS?], daughter of Rev. Chandler Robbins, minister at Plymouth. He died at Frankfort, Me. February 20, 1816. I could not find the ten sisters and brothers of Francis LeBaron Goodwin, except one brother named Nathaniel who married Molly, daughter of Thomas Jackson. There was also a John GOODWIN, son of the first Nathaniel, who in 1774 married Hannah, daughter of Thomas Jackson.
