Thanks, Zoe, but I really have that information. Just wondered if you knew where Clarissa was born & parents of Josiah & George. I have seen the Brockett book that mentions how long Asahel & Clarissa were married, & that he had lost his sight. (That was from sunstroke in the war.) I have tried all towns around Portland for Clarissa's birth & came up with nothing, but I'll keep trying. Took me over 50 years to find my Dad's mother, so I won't give up!
