Biography

According to Little, "He was a captain of the war of 1812. He became one of the original settlers of Durham, Maine, the number of his lot being 89, and his farm was cleared by him from the unbroken forest; he also engaged in the manufacture of plows; ox yokes; and other implements for the use of farmers. He married Hannah, daughyter of John and Elizabeth (Dunning) Stackpole, sister of his brother Joseph's wife, who died at Durham, June 29, 1851."

Hi again! Being a former resident of Durham myself, I just created http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Durham%2C_Maine, which links to this profile as well. An important aspect of the WikiTree project (but so far underutilized) is the potential for adding historical context to family history and the unusual collaboration this can spark. By creating general pages with links to individual ancestors we're giving Google something to index. This way, down the road if someone out there searches for "Durham" or "Durham, Maine", they have a good chance of ending up here and hopefully participating - and connecting. Crystal

Hi Emily! This public profile caught my eye when I saw Durham, Maine. I lived in Durham until I was 20... On Stackpole Road... The house I was raised in was moved by oxen... Fascinating! I wonder if there are some connections here... Crystal Williams - WikiTree Community Assistant - crystal @ wikitree.com (no spaces)
