I am looking for information on my grandmother , Marion Mitchell Wiggins, who was born in Bangor, Penobscot County, Maine in the late 1800's.

I have a copy of her DAR application. Her father was Charles Pound Wiggins and her mother was Alice Bradford Mitchell. Alice Bradford Mitchell was the daughter of Hazen Mitchell and Hannah Phillis Hammatt. Hannah Phillis Hammatt was the daughter of William Hammatt and Ester Phillips Parsons. Ester Phillips Parsons was the daughter of William Walter Parsons and Eesther Phillips. William Walter Parsons was the son of Samuel Holden Parsons and Mehitable Mather. Samuel Holden Parsons, 14 May 1737 - 17 November 1798, was a Major General in the Revolutionry War.

Grandmother moved from Bangor to Ashville, North Carolina some time around 1905. I believe she had one or more borthers who made the same move but I do not know their names. She died in the Ashville area.

Her husbands name was John Dimitri Caldwell, Sr. The had three sons: John Jr., George and Harry. I am the only son of John Jr.

Information on any of the others people named would be appreciated.

I've got Hannah Phillips Hammatt:
Born in Plymouth, MA 25 Jun 1809.
Died 26 Mar 1889.
Married Hazen Mitchell 2 Jun 1829

Hammatt family moved from Plymouth to Maine circa 1820.

One interesting fact is the William Walter Parsons was captured by the British during the Penobscot Expedition in 1779.

Sorry I don't know more, I'm actually tracing the family of Hannah's brother William Cushing Hammatt.

I have Alice Bradford Mitchell marrying Watson Emery Plummer 4-Oct-1864. No children listed, but...

Now I find a census household sheet from 1880 that lists very interestingly:
Charles P. Wiggin, Self, 52, Fire & Life Ins Agent.
Alice B. Wiggin, Wife, 38, Keeping House
Harry W. Plummer, Son, 14
Hazen M. Plummer, Son, 13
Annie Bell, Other, 21 (Irish Maidservant probably)

Your grandmother it seems, hadn't been born yet in 1880
Hope this helps a bit.
