I'm looking for confirmation of the parents and other ancestors of Jane McLellan Patten (9/29/1811 Topsham, ME - 9/20/1887 Kennebec, ME). She married Joseph Foster Sanders on 4/3/1834 in China, ME. Their children were:
Eliza Swett Sanders (2/9/1835 Palermo, ME - 1/17/1862 Hallowell, ME) married John Wesley Cross 1/17/1858 Augusta, ME Lydia Maria Sanders (1838-1883) Joseph Foster Sanders (1839-1842) Kelsey Hugh Sanders (1841-1861) Phoebe Ellen "Nellie" Sanders (1844-1932) Charles H. Sanders (1849-?)
I suspect that her parents are Robert Patten (b.1775 Topsham) and Phebe Ricker. Robert's parents are Actor/Hector Patten and Jane McClellan. Jane's father was named Hugh. I have also seen other Patten's with the middle or maiden name Swett who are presumably my Jane's cousins or aunts, which provides a connection to Eliza's middle name.
However, I can't find any confirmation of my suspicion. If someone could confirm - or deny - this for me, and tell or send me whichever documents support it, I would greatly appreciate it. This is a mystery I have wondered about for almost a decade now.
