Looking for parents of Moses. His diary, in possession of Maine Historical Society has been transcribed. He states he was born in Hampton Falls, NH, carried to Boston at 5 yrs old, etc. Married Sarah 1766 in Newburyport, MA, and he was listed "of Newbury." He never mentions parents or siblings in this diary. Died in Edgecomb, Lincoln Co., Maine.

I just read your message. Would you happen to know if Moses & Sarah were from Bristol, RI & had a daughter Lois, who would have married a Joseph Shove in 1785? Lois would be my ggggrandmother. Thanks. Carol Mullen

Moses reported that he was born in Hampton Falls, New Hampshire and moved to MA. From MA, he moved to Maine. I don't see any record of him being in RI.
Sarah was born in MA and I don't have any record of her being in RI.
They had 5 daughters, 3 sons, none that I have are named Lois.
Sorry I could not help you.
Regards,
Janece
