You might want to see if this text is available in a local library near you as it seems these families resided in the area of Cumberland, ME and many were sailors.  You might get more thorough data.

Vital records of Cumberland, Maine 1701-1892

Some records can also be found on familysearch.org  https://familysearch.org/

Although you would have to confirm that these matches are correct.  Census data on dob of Wm H is confusing.  I am not related until you get back to the Littlefield lineage, and then only laterally, so I have never actually researched these lines.
