Biography

Gorham Genthner was born est. September 1835-1836 in Waldoboro, Lincoln Co., Maine, where he lived his entire life. He was the son of John and Margaret Genthner.

09 August 1850- Gorham was 13 and lived with his parents and siblings. In the household: John W Genthner, a 57 year-old farmer; Margaret-50; Geo W-23, a ship carpenter; Francy-18; Bertha-16; Gorham -13; Mary C-11 and Wm H H, aged 9. All family members had been born in Maine.

Gorham Genthner and Mary E. Genthner were married 26 November 1859. His wife appears to have been a distant cousin. Exact relationship not yet determined. She was the daughter of Jacob and Elizabeth (Voltz?) Genthner.

22 June 1860--Gorham-22 and Mary E.-18 lived in Waldoboro. He was a sailor.

10 June 1870--When he was 34 years old, Gorham Genthner lived and farmed in Waldoboro with his wife, Mary E -27. Children in the household: Cora E -9 and Willie H, aged 5. All members of the family had been born in Maine. Several Genthner families lived nearby--perhaps extended family.

14 June 1880--Gorham Genthner-43, a farmer in Waldoboro, resided with wife, Mary E-36 and sons, Willie-15 and Orrin, aged 9.

04 September 1888, Gorham was widowed when Mary passed away.

He passed away 23 March 1900, at the age of 64 yrs., 6 months and 10 days. BURIAL with his wife and parents in Genthner Cemetery West Waldoboro, Lincoln County, Maine, He may have been originally buried in the French cemetery, then later here, as there is a second burial record which gives his DOD as 23 March 1900. [1] A man with the surname of French was buried a second time in the Genthner Cemetery, so this is a possibility.
