Looking for Birth record for Cynthia SHERMAN, 1808
Cynthia SHERMAN married Ebenezer PREBLE, in Newcastle, Lincoln, ME in 1830. Records imply she was the daughter of Roger SHERMAN and Elizabeth DUNTON. But records of Roger's children do not include Cynthia. Either there is an omission in the birth records, or ...
I have found SHERMAN family pedigree information with conflicts so I question some of the SHERMAN data. Researchers keep associating wives with the wrong person and adding or loosing generations. Of course my data could be wrong. The SHERMAN family settled (1600's) in the Plymouth county of Massachusetts, but one son, Eleazer moved to the Boothbay, ME for some unknown reason.
I suspect Eleazer's move might have something to do with the political feelings of many people in Marshfield, MA leading up to the Revolution. That area was a Tory stronghold.
Does anyone have access to Lincoln county Maine birth records for early 1800ís? Could Cynthia have come into the family group of Roger from relative (maybe a child of a parents sibling, maybe from Mass.)? Any other suggestions?
