Re: Pease Family Information-Maine// Penobscot Indians
melissa - what a delight it has been to read through your msg history - I found out things I didn't know were available.If you would, please head me in the right direction - My GGgrandmother, Hannah Pease, married John Conery in 1815 in Nashua New Hampshire.Hannah was 1/2
Penobscot Indian.I have a letter written by my
Ggrandfather written in 1907 that states - Hannah's
family used to visit us once a year, they would travel altogether in canoes and the head man was her nearest relative, he was the seventh son of the seventh son
and was supposed to have a great power to heal the sick
and he was a great prophet.They would eat one meal with us and then go down river and set up camp - as soon as arrangements could be made mother would take us younger children to stay a day or two with them.We're talking around 1839 or 40 time frame.Hannah was from Maine or Lowell Mass. - I've found nothing on her or her family other then the date of the marriage.
Still looking for the Chief Joseph Pease posting.
