Lydia Pearson 1st wife of Abiel Pearson Follansbee
Abiel Pearson Follansbee (son of Moody Follansbee and Judith Pearson) married Lydia Pearson after September 14, 1805 (per Newbury, MA intentions), subsequently he married Mary (Molley) Pearson May 16, 1818. I believe I have located the grave of Lydia Pearson Follansbee in the Alna, ME Cemetery.
She is buried under her married name as Lydia Follansbee born 1776 died Jan. 19, 1817 (Newbury births give her birth as Sep. 6, 1776). She is the only Follansbee among 1339 records - but also found is her brother Jeremiah Pearson and his family.
I am descended from Mary Pearson's first marriage to Stephen Brown, but can claim a relationship to the Follansbee clan through the Pearsons - note that both Lydia and Mary were first cousins of Abiel Pearson Follansbee.
