I have a George E. Fernald, son of Robert and Mary Jane (Donnell) Fernald. Robert and Mary married Oct 5, 1848. This George was probably b. ca 1850 or after, in the Kittery, Maine area. Children of Robert and Mary are Frederick W., Daniel E., Charles F., and George E., maybe others too. Sources: Old Kittery and Her Families by Stackpole, Kittery Family Records & Marriages, book 2, and Maine Old Cemetery Records (MOCA). I'll keep looking for more proof of a connection if you can sent any later family information on George and their descendants.
