Amy Wing was born at Livermore, Maine (then in Massachusetts), on 1 Dec 1801, the daughter of William Wing and Cynthia (Cooper) Wing.[1] (See the Research Note below.)


Amy Wing married Stephen Wing,[2] as his second wife.


No record has been found of the death of Amy (Wing) Wing. She was living at Stetson, Maine, at the time of the 1850 census,[3] but by the 1860 census her husband was living in the household of his son Howard, and Amy is not listed.[4]

Research Note

The entry in the Livermore vital records of the birth of the child born to William and Cynthia Wing on 1 Dec 1801 can be read as "Anna" or "Ama." It is likely that it is "Ama" and a variant of "Amy." There is no other child named Amy in the family shown in the Livermore records, and the Wing family lived there until William sold his farm and moved to Freeman, Maine in 1813.[5] Amy's age of 47 in the 1850 census[3] is only a year off for a child born in December 1801. The Livermore records appear to be a complete list of the births and deaths of the children of William and Cynthia Wing through 1812, and there no other record has been found of a child named Anna.
