Parsons, my maternal g-g-g- grandmother was born Bath, Maine, 21 March 1818; married Benjamin Taylor Rounds in Boston Mass, Dec 1843, died Cambridge Mass 10 Aug. 1906.

Her death certificate lists her father as William Parsons b York, ME and other sources list her name as Elvira Jane, but that didn't help much.  In addition to Susan Lydia, there were many other children whose births can be found on familysearch.org.

There are some census below with some of the other children's names.  Also, there is a picture of her on Ancestry.com.  That is a pay site, so to get any more details on that record you would have to either use their free-trial or join.
