I have found a ~poosible~ link to my family through the DUNNELL name and am wondering if anyone has further info on this man Samuel Dunnell, i.e, parents, siblings, where he was born etc. Samuel married Achsah HILL in Maine in 1804. Achsah was a daughter of Nathaniel Hill and Martha A. CROCKETT (spelled Crockit / Crocket in the old records of Gorham / Buxton, Maine).Martha was a daughter of Samuel H. Crockett b. 1716/17 in NH and Priscilla Swett JACKMAN. Martha and Nathaniel were married 1773 in Buxton, York Co., Maine. Martha had a brother named Samuel CROCKETT who was born 1752 who married to Tabitha HAMLIN/Hamblen prob. in Falmouth, Maine. Samuel and Tabitha had a daughter named Content b. 1779 in Gorham, Cumberland Co., Maine. Content aka "Tenty" Crockett married my 4th grt. grandfather Joseph MOODY who was born c1782 in Buxton, York Co., Maine son of James MOODY and Elizabeth DONALD (but a note in the old church records of Buxton said this name was probably more commonly spelled DONNELL/DUNNELL. Therefore I believe there is a link here to both families.
My apologies for being lengthy in detail, but I thought that might help someone narrow their search if anyone can help me. I have Elizabeth's parents as Benjamin Donnell/Dunnell(?) and Sarah KINGSBURY also of York Co., Maine. I am trying to see if this Samuel O. DUNNELL is also a relative since this surname seems to have been mispelled over and over in the old records. Thank You for anything, I would appreciate the help very much.
