  • Notes 
    • Joshua is said to have lived in Dover and Harmony Maine as well as the locations from the census.

      Feb 2014: Just noted something very interesting. Two of his sons (Nathaniel and Peter Q) lived in Dover, Pisca., Maine. Peter moved to New York about 1860, but did several land transactions in Dover. Note that this is also where Rev Moses Ames lived and for that matter where James Kenniston Ames came about 1860.
      The Ames book page that I attach says he lived in Dover. This is Dover, Piscataquis, I am pretty sure, since two of his sons lived in Dover too. Supposedly he died in Somerset County, but I dont know the evidence.
