Anyone have connections with William LEIGHTON born Robbinston, had children with Mary CHAMBERS and Elizabeth "Lizzie" SUTHERLAND.  My grandmother, Margaret Georgia LEIGHTON was 3rd child of William and Mary, born 12 April 1898 at Eastport.  Looking for further evidence of William's 2 marriages, and death date of Mary CHAMBERS.

I realize this is an old thread but I'm wondering if anyone has come across any information on the wife and or children of Alpheus' son Michael?

Yes, I also think it might be Uncle Stephen.  But who is the Elizabeth Pine?  I thought Stephen's wife was Polly Treadwell.  Any ideas?

I'm fairly sure Alpheus is the father of Stephen Pine (1815) as the latter gave that name as a middle name to two of his sons.  I found a couple online sources that gave Alpheus as the father.  When Alpheus' brother Steven was living in household with Stephen (1815), it could have been uncle/nephew as easily as son/son.  Guy?

It's an excellent resource. I have four families on the list.

It doesn't answer his question as to confirmation of parents of Stephen Pine (1815) but probably filled a few holes. Robbinston vital records prior to 1860 have been lost. Unless there is something in Eastport Sentinel, it's going to take land or probate records.

My Stephen B. Pine was born 3 Dec 1815 in Robbinston, ME and died 11 Apr 1878 in Eastport, ME.  He married Mary Eliza Pike on 22 Nov 1841 in Eastport, ME, the daughter of James Pike and Jane Herrington/Harrington.  She was born 20 Feb 1824 in Eastport and died 16 Jun 1878 in Eastport.  Still not sure who Stephen's parents were.  The 1850 census for Eastport has him living with Stephen and Elizabeth Pine, both born in Mass. or possibly NY.  Frustrating!!!

i missed this because we were looking for Mary. The Arnie Krause St Croix Valley website lists Elizabeth Pike, which maybe Mary Elizabeth Pike, born  21 Feb 1803 in Calais, ME, dau of William Pike (1775) and Elizabeth Christopher (1777) . She married Aaron G Chandler. Is this what we are looking for?
