I have an Ebenezer Gardner Oakes (b. 16 Oct 1808, Orland, ME) in my family & he was married to Sarah Briggs. They had 8 children (Estella, Mary, Emily, Eliza, Imogene, Fred, David, & Nelson). Ebenezer had been married more than once; I have record that he had been married to a Harriet Mead (and probably others).
Ebenezer's parents were Abel Oakes and Betsey Hamlin. (Betsey's family was that of the Honorable Hannibal Hamlin, 1st VP on the Lincoln ticket. Hannibal had also been Senator & Gov. of Maine.) Abel's parents were Capt. Jonathan Oakes & Abigail Rand. Jonathan is said to have had 24 children by 4 wives but only 16 children lived to be named in his will in 1784.
Could this Ebenezer have been married to Catharine?
