    • However, her brother Capt Joseph Mansell describes (Bangor Hist Mag 1894/5):

      Text:
      Capt. Mansell says he lived in the family of Silas Harthorn, on the spot where Widow Webster lives. He also states, that "in 1774, Isaac Simons, my grandfather, "on my mother's side, went with me on to Fort Hill, in Bangor.

      Subsequent work by Chuck Simmons makes it clear that Leah is daughter of Abigail English of Scituate and either Nathaniel Tilden (with whom she had a bastard) or the legitimate child of Isaac Simmons, her husband. It is not clear which theory is correct at the moment.

      If it is Isaac, there are Alden and Mullins Mayflower descents, if Tilden, interesting gentry lines in Kent. Abigail herself is a bit of a mystery. I guess she might be of the well known Englisn family of Salem, but have not a shred of evidence for that yet.
