Melissa, Thank you so much for your detailed reply. It will be very helpful in useful. In fact, I have seen several of your posts on other family lines and have found all of them useful, so we must be chasing the same ancestry in many ways. You also mentioned Clement Moody who is an ancestor of mine as well.
Since my initial post on Samuel Bean, this is what I have found and believe to be the ancestry: I have Samuel Bean as the son of Samuel Bean (1707-1800) and Rachel Tuck (1715-1811) Samuel Bean's parents as Samuel Bean(1666-) and Mary Severance (1670-1750). Samuel Bean's parents as John and Margaret Bean (immigrants from Scotland).
Also the ancestry of Mehetable Porter as: Lieutenant Samuel Porter (1709-1786) and Experience Batcheller(1711-). Samuel Porter was son of Samuel Porter (1681-1770) and Sarah Bradstreet (1680-). Samuel Porter was son of John Porter (1658-1753 and Lydia Herrick (1661-1737). John Porter was son of Samuel Porter (1637-1660) and Hannah Dodge (1642-1688). Samuel was son of John Porter (1596-1676) and Mary Endicott (1598-1684)
I have greater details, or if anyone finds this information incorrect, please let me know.
Regarding Clark/Moody. I too have Sarah Clark and Clement Moody in my ancestry. Their son Josiah married Sarah Scribner and had son, Samuel Moody, who married Hannah Severance in Kingston, NH in 1755 and had son, Joseph Moody who married Bridget Davis in Alfred, ME in 1783. This family removed to Kingfield, Maine and after the death of Bridget removed to Ohio with children and his new wife had more children as well.
But, their son Davis Moody remained in Maine as he got married to a Phebe Drake just prior to the Moody family going out to NY and then Ohio.
In regards to the Douglass family my ancestor Dudley Bean (son of Israel Bean and Betsey Paine) married Elvira Jane Douglass about 1834 in Jay, ME. She came from Durham, ME and I have her parents as Abijah Douglass (1790-) and Phebe Estes (1798-1890). Abijah, I have as son of John Douglass (1768-1802) and Judith Collins (1771-1841). John as son of Cornelius Douglass (1749-1821) and Ann Estes (1735-1790).
I have it that Ann's father, Edward Estes (1702-1788) removed from Mass when he received a deed of land in 1770 in Durham, ME (formerly Royalsborough). Ann and Cornelius married about three years earlier, and when father Edward Estes removed to Royalsborough, they went with him. But, they must have lived closer to Brunswick (which I don't know this for sure, but may have been a part of the overall area called Royalsborough at the time)
Now, back to Samuel Bean and Mehetable Porter. I think I've got my ancestry on this couple now unless someone tells me otherwise. It is nice though to double check with others who are working on the same lines of ancestry, just to make sure all is in sinc.
