    The orange arrow points to J. Varney, stepfather of Warren McPhetres. Eleanor Tourtillott, his mother, had lived at this spot, and in 1850, Warren and his family lived in these environs, by comparing census data.

    This is an important testimony of Thomas T, son of Capt. Abraham T and Leah Mansell. He clearly states that in 1836 he has four living siblings: Mary, Rachel, Stephen and Olive. Eleanor T is NOT mentioned. She is often made d, of AT and Leah. This is essentially proof that she was d. of Reuben T (who was son of Capt A. T.) and Lucy Mansell (sister of Leah!).

    • A testimony by Thomas T, undoubted son of AT (1744) and Leah Mansell shows that Eleanor is not his sister. As such, she must be d. of Reuben and Lucy Mansell, as shown.

  • Notes 
    • Note: DNA tests support this line..

      Bangor Hist. Mag Vol VI states that ET was d. of Abraham T and Leah Mansell (p 84) "Records of Deeds in Lincoln Records"

      However, there is also this (from a Message Board):

      I took a trip recently to Maxfield Maine and Orono Maine. I found the following in the town records of Orono Maine:

      Abraham Tourtellott Jr. b. 5 Jan 1795
      Eleanor Tourtellott b. 27 Feb 1796
      Joseph Tourtellott b. 5 Jan 1797
      Amia (?) Tourtellott b. 19 Nov 1793
      Nancy Tourtellott b. 14 Feb 1802
      Rebecca Tourtellott b. 23 Mar 1806
      Reuben Tourtellott Jr. b. 25 Jun 1807
      Combs Tourtellott b. 1 Feb 1810 (Children of Reuben Tourtellott and Lucy Mansell)

      Note also that in the Lowell, Penobscot, ME 1850 census, she is listed as being in the adjacent dwelling (with her husband J. Varney) to Warren Mcpheters, her son. She is listed as 54 yr in 1850.

      Grave reads:

      A household's tomb to Faith; how dear
      A part have gone, part linger here
      United all in love and hope;
      One household still
      Together we shall sleep
      Together may we rise
      And sing our morning hymn.
      One household still.
