Seeking info on marriage of a Joseph Patten of Maine and Elizabeth or "Betsey" Southard in the 1790's in Maine. Betsey is the daughter of Abraham Southard. She was born approx 1777 or 78. All I have been able to find is Betsey Southard married a "Joseph Patten of Maine." There are many Joseph Pattens in Maine.
I am descended from a Joseph Patten, born in Skowhegan, Maine around 1777, who was married to a Betsey (maiden name unknown). I am trying to find out if Betsey Southard is the Betsey who is married to my ancestor, Joseph Patten.
It seems quite likely, since two of Betsey Southard's brothers each named a son Leander Patten Southard. My Joseph and Betsey Patten had a son named Leander Patten. Another brother named a son Elbridge G. Southard and my Joseph and Betsey had a son named Elbridge G. Patten.And then Betsey's brother, John Southard named a daughter, Elizabeth Patten (Betsey) Southard! This all seems too much to be a coincedence, but would like something more to confirm it. Any info or suggestions welcome.
