Here are the Hodgkins marriages in Westbrook that might relate:

As you can see, Ebenezer is the only one married early enough to have
a child in 1824. Of course, the parents could have come from elsewhere.

Surnames: Hodgkins, McPhetres,
My grandmother Eva Lucretia McPhetres Boot had a grandfather named John Webb Hodgkins. She always told me he came to visit them in Lynn, Massachusetts in the winter time. In fact many relatives came to visit her home in the winter. There is a photograph of the family at my mom's house. One lady I was told is my grandmother's Aunt Sarah ( a twin of her grandfather). My grandmother Eva was jealous because everyone in her family was born in Maine except her. She was born in Swampscott,Essex Co., Mass. For the record she came to live with us in Washington State and passed away here.

How exciting!!!! I have a marriage to a McPhetres in this tree also....John W ( Webb?) Hodgkins married a Lucretia McPhetres....that cannot be a coincidence....can I have your grandmothers parents names?????

My John W. Hodgkins parents names were Eben( Ebenezer from above?) Hodgkins and Mary Webb. Was Mary married to a Webb??? I don't think so.... It makes perfect sense that my John W and your John Webb are indeed the same man....can't wait to hear more! Please email me at sanjos333@yahoo.com. I will be happy to share what I have...... Sandy

Hi Sandy - Kelly here. We corresponded about Belle Hodgkins Ryan and Phinadis Hodgkins a few months ago. I also hit a wall with John W. Can you share what you have on Eben & Mary? Thanks!
