I've seen one genealogy done for Edward Albee...it doesn't mention Arthur Dillaway. In fact, I think I have it somewhere tucked away.And the Arthur Dillaway who m. Betsey was one of William's kids, but you know that.
Also, I have two books written in the early 1900s which list Nathaniel Cole (my ancestor) as the son of James of Plymouth.TGMB states that's not true and provides a great deal of support information (but no real sources).In other words, books can be wrong and I'm still waiting for a more reliable source on Arthur.I'd settle for circumstantial info.A few years ago, I made it a point to search out the Dillaways. (It's an on-going quest)I have pages of information on several Dillaways, including Arthur, all of them in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine.I have nothing to indicate he was ever married or ever had children.Nor can I find a Eunice Allen in R.I. or anywhere else.But I have a lot of circumstantial evidence to support my idea that James was Esther's father, so that's why I'm sticking with him until somebody can present source (or close) evidence to the contrary...and a book without sources doesn't cut it.
In Vol. 8 of Maine Families, Anderson says Arthur was the son of James.James was b. in 1719, m. in 1741.Timing wouldn't work for Arthur.
Bob Albee and I have had this on-going debate.He's sticking with Arthur.No problem.You guys stick with Arthur, I'm staying with James.
And you never did tell me who Arthur's father was.
Added note - I have two books to my credit, (both on the town of Atkinson, NH) and was a reporter for several years before I began working for the Town as a clerk-secretary and finally administrator.My credentials aren't all that bad.
