Looking for maiden name/parents of Philea, second wife of Gideon Alexander, and any information about this couple.
Gideon Alexander was b. 13 Aug 1767 in Uxbridge, MA.In 1791 he married Lucretia Taylor in Westminster, MA. They had 3 children, Asa, Calvin, and Mary (Polly). Lucretia died around 1797, either in NH or in Lower Canada (now Quebec).
Gideon remarried. His wife's name was Philea or Philia, and she was quite probably born in New England. I have had no luck discovering her maiden name. They had at least one child, a daughter named Jane. Jane married 18 Jan 1821 in Shipton, Quebec, a Moses Follansbee, most probably the one born 16 May 1783 in Strafford, VT.
At this period in Quebec married women were listed in official records under their maiden names. I cannot locate any records of Philea since I don't know her last name. Any help would be much appreciated.
