Thank you so much for searching. I am still trying to find their ancesty. Sorry for the delay in responding.
I have located Francis in a couple of US Census repots for Rockport, 1840 to 1860 in Camden and in 1870 in Rockland Maine. Believe he died after 1870, but not positive what year. I beleive he dies in Rockland but cannot locate his burial location.
I know he was residing in Camden in 1840 beause of the census, but his 6 children were all registered as being born or christened in Rockport from 1835 to 1845.
Not being a native of Maine I don;t know the town relationships during this era between the neighboring communities of Camden & Rockland.
