So glad to get your message!This line confuses me no end..The Nathaniel I have was born in 1846 in Hallowell, Kennebec Co,Maine. So there must be a connection. On the LDS site his parents are listed as Nathaniel and Charlotte. I got his birthdate from his tombstone and his place of birth from the census record. So I started searching in Maine and found Nathaniel and Charlotte..but have not been able to find much more about them. I tried every spelling of which there are many. My Nathaniel is listed as Lumen on the Arkansas census. If Nathaniel,Sr. was b.in 1797, he would have been 49 when my Nathaniel was born...not unheard of but reaching! I found 3 Nathaniel Leaman's who md. in Kennebec Co.,Me. but none early enough to be my Nathaniel's father.Then I found another Nathaniel who was b. in Kennebec Co. to Nathaniel & Charlotte 21 Dec. 1834.This one sounds more plausible. Do you have more info on Sarah? I cannot begin to imagine how my Nathaniel got to Arkansas from Maine. Did the ones you know of stay in Maine? I would so appreciate anything at all you can tell me about your line. You are the first person to know anything about these people at all. Thanks so much for responding!
