I am searching for information on Elizabeth Pillsbury Tolman and her husband, William Tolman.  They were probably born in the mid 1800's.  They may or may not have lived in Maine.  

I'm interested in finding more specific information about them.

They had a son named James Henderson Tolman who is buried in the South Solon Burial Ground, Solon, Somerset County, USA.  He was born on Aug. 10,1885 and died in 1954.  He would've been my great grandfather.
