a.Joseph B.Mayo:b.1821 in Brownville, Maine.
b.Moses Mayo:b.Sept.2,1823 and moved to Monicello,Minn.

Isaac Mayo( Thomas, Joseph, John, Capt. Samuel Mayo,Rev. John Mayo),father of Allen Mayo above, was born in Harwich, Mass.on Nov. 21, 1758.He married in Pembroke, Mass.in Aug. 1781, to Hannah Calroon of Plymouth, Mass.She was born ca. 1761.Isaac died in Brownville, Maine on Oct. 12, 1844.Isaac moved from Boston to Provincetown to Brownville, Maine.His progeny found their way to Milo, Maine.He was a blacksmith and a Methodist preacher.He served in the Revolutionary War in Capt.

That's all of the Mayo's that I could find in my research from Milo, Maine that were descended from Rev. John Mayo.
I know you probably can't connect these Mayo's above to your own Milo Mayo's yet, but it might be a good idea to keep them on file for future reference when you go back further on your research.Good luck!
