Jane Crabtree was born to Phebe Snow Higgins and Agreen Crabtree on 8/31/1823 in Hancock, Hancock, Maine, USA. She died Oct 1888 in Gouldsboro, Hancock, Maine, USA. On 1/14/1841 in Gouldsboro, Hancock, Maine, USA she married Freeman Bunker. Freeman Bunker was born 12/25/1809 in Gouldsboro, Hancock, Maine, USA to Jacob Bunker and Lydia Sargent. He died on 12/25/1875 in Gouldsboro, Hancock, Maine, USA. Their children were Rufus H. Bunker born 9/27/1842 in Gouldsboro, Hancock, Maine, USA and Hulda Ann Bunker born 11/17/1850 in (South) Gouldsboro, Hancock, Maine, USA and died Bar Harbor, Hancock, Maine, USA. Hulda Ann Bunker was married 4/7/1869 in Gouldsboro, Hancock, Maine, USA to Simon Leeds Andrews. Simon Leeds Andrews was born 10/12/1843 in Camden, Knox, Maine, USA to George C. Andrews and Harriet Newell Leeds. He died 4/7/1892 in (South) Gouldsboro, Hancock, Maine, USA. I descend from one of their nine children who was Bertha Estella Andrews born 7/31/1888 in Gouldsboro, Hancock, Maine, USA and died after Sept 1942 in Maine, USA. Her last known residence was in Rockland, Knox, Maine, USA in the 4/16/1940 Census. On 12/9/1903 in Gouldsboro, Hancock, Maine, USA she married Roland B. Young. Roland B. Young was born 1868 in Gouldsboro, Hancock, Maine, USA and died between 1920-1930 in Gouldsboro, Hancock, Maine, USA. They were my great-grandparents. On 10/2/1940 Bertha Estella Andrews married John Franklin Gross in Rockland, Knox, Maine, USA. In Sept 1942 she went by Bertha Young Gross. After this date no more info regarding her death date could be located. Any help in this tree would be greatly appreciated.

Geni shows parents of Agreen Crabtree as William Crabtree and Hannah Bagley

It does show William Crabtree was married twice to a Sarah Hodgkins and Hannah Bagley

William Crabtree and Hannah Bagley were married 12 May 1798 in Portland, Cumberland, Maine, USA which is 8 years after Agreen Crabtree was born. Agreen's mother is Sarah Hodgkins in my tree who married William Crabtree c 1778 in Sullivan, Hancock, Maine, USA. Geni can't be right.

Phebe Crabtree’s FindAGrave

Father: Jesse Higgins FindAGrave

Mother: Priscilla (Snow) Higgins FindAGrave

Agreen Crabtree (1790 - 1871 parents don’t match what family search has for his parents which is George Crabtree and Rebecca Hopkins. He is currently connected to William Crabtree (1760 - 1843) and Hannah (Hodgkins) Crabtree (1758 - abt. 1865)

Agreen Crabtree’s FindAGrave. It appears there is two Agree Crabtrees. Dates are not a match see other Agreen Crabtree’s 1790-1871 FindAGrave

Thanks Andrew!

Your welcome!

I’m hoping others will comment also.

I would add the tags Maine and connectors or sourcerers it might get more answers.


Priscilla (Snow) Higgins (1756 - 1843) is related to a Mayflower passenger through her grandfather Micajah Snow (1669 - bef. 1754)  See Mayflower Passenger Stephen Hopkins (bef. 1581 - abt. 1644)

Thank you for your detailed information. What I can't find is the daughter of Simon Leeds Andrews and Hulda Ann Bunker who is Bertha Estella Andrews and her first husband Roland B. Young. I don't know their dates and places of death. Bertha's second husband was John Franklin Gross. If anyone knows of the deaths of Bertha Estella (Andrews) Young Gross and her husband Roland B. Young I would probably faint. I have been searching for years. Please help.
