Re: Aubrey Sylvester Maine
There are only 2 Aubrey Sylvesters in the Maine Marriage index and Aubrey E. is mine- Aubrey O. is the one you are looking for.
Aubrey O. Sylvester of Rumford m. Frances W. Downs of Greenwood- May 12, 1917
( The 1910 census for Rumford has Aubrey O.,at age 14, his brothers John M and Everett L, and sister Doris K. living with their mother Dora M.Sylvester)
Aubrey O. Sylvester of Portland m. Dorothy Mason/Nash of Portland - March 27, 1924.
(This could also be your Aubrey since you say Frances was dec'd by 1923)
Brother -John M Sylvester of Rumford m. Orilla Larmey -4/7/1920
the 1900 census for Woodstock, Maine has
John S.Sylvester born July 1850, age 49, married 6 years, born in Mass.,parents born England, John was a CabinetMaker
wife- Dora M- born May 1873, age 27, married 6 yrs, 2 children/ 2 living, born Maine, as were parents
Aubrey O.- son/ born March 1896,age 4, born Maine
John M.- son/ born Feb 1898 age 2, born Maine
also in the 1900 c. Woodstock is Dors'a widowed father- Kingman G. Perham- born June 1833, age 66, born Maine, parents also
The Maine State Archives has the marriage of John Sylvester of Woodstock, Maine to Dora M. Perham of Woodstock- Aug 27, 1894
The 1880 census on line at www.familysearch.org has the Kingman G. Perham family in Woodstock, his wife Ella and 7 children including Dora at age 6
I didn't see anything on John Sylvester in the 1880 c. - not sure where in Mass to look.
The 1870 census for Mass( Chelsea) has a Webster and John Sylvester living in a borarding house- age 17 and 19- both born in Mass, working as Laborers but don't know if they are right family.
As for the Wing/ Thurlow names-
