Here is my research on my wife's line of the LaJeunesse / Lisherness family of Maine. Maybe some of these same Lisherness / LaJeunesse family members are your relations, too. The names, dates, and places listed are pretty solid and might provide you with a basis to continue your research efforts. I don’t know how much else I can be of help, but let me know if you think of anything.
(As an aside, the “Zerviah” Warren you see named here is directly descended from Richard Warren of the Mayflower. Family info I had listed up to her, and the research I did in Plymouth @ the Pilgrim Museum and Mayflower Society listed down to this same woman! Pretty cool!!)
