Verbane "Irving" Fenlason was the son of Reuben Tuttle Fenlason (b 10-10-1810 E. Machias, ME, d 8-10-1852 Alexander, ME) and Deborah Gooch (b 3-18-1814 Alexander, ME, d before 1848 Alexander, ME. Reuben suffocated in a water well while trying to save his uncle, who also suffocated. Reuben and Deborah had 4 children. At the time of his death, Reuben was married to a second wife, Livonia N. Gooch, with whom he had a single child. His death left a widow and 5 children.Livonia remarried, to James M. Fenlason, within a few months. James was b abt 1826. However, I am not sure who his parents were, nor when either he or Livonia died. If you find any info on this, please let me know.
