Subject: Re: [GENMASSACHUSETTS] Mary Sherburne m. Henry Rice
Date: Sat, 18 Aug 2007 16:27:38 +1000
I am in Australia and seeking information on Mary Sherburne, her issue and her ancestors. My husband descends from her son Joseph Waldo Rice but other than names, I do not any information on the other children or her heritage.
What I have to date is:
b. August 1797
d. February 1887
According to her gravestone at Arbvitae (Triangle) Cemetery, Lincoln, MA
m. 20 May 1820, Littleton
The death entry for Mary lists her father as Samuel and his birthplace as Pelham.
In the 1850 Census of Lincoln, MA there is a Joanna Sherburne living with them and at her death of 1880 states her father as Samuel and his place of birth as Gloucester. This assumes that Mary and Joanna were sisters, or that both had a father called Samuel. In 1850 Mary was aged 53 and Joanna 46.
We are looking at the possibility that the parents for Mary were Samuel Sherburne b. 1768 Gloucester, MA and Sarah/Sally Read m. 24 June 1794 Middlesex, MA
If anyone is able to assist me I would be most grateful.
Thanking you in advance
