I am trying to understand something and may be someone out there can help me please. I am researching George W. Bachelder born abt Feb. 1838 in Maine died abt 1919 in Maine. He married Mary Anne Moore abt 1857 and then married Florida D. Flagg abt 1881.
When trying to find his parents, I read message boards and saw postings stating that his parents are Zadock Bachelder and Polly Blaisdell. Here is my confusion. Zadock and Polly from what I have researched had one son named Zadock G. Bachelder born Mar 22, 1840. The rest of their children were girls. Is this Zadock G. Bachelder born in 1840 indeed George W. Bachelder OR am I at a stumbling block? Any help would be appreciated, thank you.
