Well I knew I was behind on my email, but this was a while ago. Thanks for the info. We have a lot of documents, including the land deeds. She returned to Dover-Foxcroft, ME after his death with the children. Some of them we are having difficulty finding as well. Ben Jr died in the Civil War and is Arlington National. Would love to be able to get there one day to see the site and see if they have any of his personal effects. She refers to him as Captain, but we haven't been able to figure out why. His age makes it unlikely he was in any of the wars. He was quite ill a few years before he died. He was a blacksmith and it was said in the deposition I believe that he and Ben Jr would cross over into Fort Kent, Me to work. We have a lot of info, but nothing that has lead us to his birthdate or who his parents might be.
