    One more excerpt from the 1858 Piscataquis map. Here the proximity of J Ames and M Ames is obvious. It appears that there were multiple plots owned by these Ames. Note also Edwin L Ames, and John Ames (I know its them from deeds, Edwin is of the Phineas 1757 line) and proximity of N Parsons to a Moses Ames property. Its POSSIBLE that there is a misprint here and the M Ames by N Parsons should be N Ames instead, since its known that Nathaniel Parsons lived by Nathl Ames in 1850. Or did Moses buy it from Nathaniel who did leave for Cape Elizabeth?? ex-Library of Congress see the webpage http://www.loc.gov/item/2012592369. Its a great map of the entire county with several nice vignettes.

  • Notes 
    • I note that James K Ames lived with Patience his wife near Dover, Maine. For a map of this whole area, see 'map' under pictures for JKA. I have recently added a plot map that shows that he lived very near Rev Moses Ames in a fantastic 1858 map of the county.

      http://worldconnect.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=PED&db=ames-maine&id=I29035

      Cemetery record of Patience:
      http://files.usgwarchives.net/me/piscataquis/cemetery/southdover.txt
      Note that Patience is buried by Rev Moses Ames in South Dover. I am essentially certain that Moses was James K's elder brother (b. Sullivan, Hancock, ME in 1812).

      I note that James K Ames lived with Patience his wife near Alton, Maine -- quite near Bradford.
      He married an Eliza Brown and she divorced him. Her name appears on a deed in Dover.

      JKA moves a lot.

      1822: Born in Bradford, ME -- NW of Bangor Note: Bradford was first settled 1803-05 by James White and Robert Marshall of Thomaston. It became aplantation in 1820 and a town in 1831.
      1850 : In Amherst, SE of Bangor
      1860: In Alton, NW of Bangor, about 10 miles E of Bradford, where he was born
      Patience is buried in Dover, ME -- not so far from Bradford and Alton
      Married Louisa in Lowell, Maine (close to Bangor) [he is listed as a Tanner with three boarders]
      1870, 1880 (With Louisa) in Washington, MI
