Joseph Raynes -the father- was born Oct. 6 1710. He married Hannah Stone Feb 17 1731. They both lived in Scarborough. He was a physician in Biddeford, bought property from Samuel Rounds June 19, 1732,and sold it to John Donell on Oct. 18, 1740. . Hannah signed with an "X" as witness on land transaction in 1732. Nov 20, 1746 Scarborough Vital Records show a Hannah Raynes m. Gideon Bragdon b. 1712, son of Lt. Arthur Bragdon. Is this Joseph's widow. Maybe, then on 19 May 1757 Hannah Raynes Bragdon m. Henry McKenny. Eunice was the daughter of Solomon and Elizabeth Babson. Other children: Elizabeth m. Samuel Parsons- went to Maine Hannah m. 12/4/1776 Lt. Nathaniel Bennet. He was in the Revolutionary War. John, went to Mt. Desert, in North Yarmouth in 1799. Abigail m. Benjamin Haskell - went to Maine Sarah m.RogerStinchfield,went to Leeds,Me.
This (above) was in a Babson Genealogy at the New England Hist. & Gen. Society Library, by Cahterine Finney-MacDougal. In Fisher's Soldiers etc. of Rev. War: Lt. Nathaniel Bennet was in New Gloucester, as were Rogers Stinchfield, Joseph Raynes, Samuel Parsons and Benjamin Haskell. The last three were listed as Patriotic Service. Since Solomon Babson, the father, died before 1763, one of Eunices sisters may have taken her to New Gloucester, (explaining why Joseph Raynes met her there). Cumberland deeds show a William Widgery selling 51 land to a Joseph Pierce, and 80 acres to Solomon Babson, mariner, of Gloucester, Ma in 1779. (The land was next door to Eunice Babson!)That is all!
