Looking for my Father's family. They were all born in Penobscot County. My Father's name is Clifford Lincoln Lansill, changed to Lansil later.He was born 10/13/1904 in Bradley, ME. His Father is Wilbur Lansill, born 9/24/1872 in Orono, ME. His mother is Inez Cram, birth and death unknown. My Dad's grandparents were William Lansill, born 3/8/1843 in Bangor, ME. died 10/01/1919 in Bradley, ME. Zilpha Spencer, born 12/16/1849 in Bradley, ME. Died 11/26/1911 in Bradley, Me. I would like more info and to see if we are part of the Penobscot Indian Tribe.

I believe all of the Bangor Lansil's descend from Charles V. Lansil of France born abt 1768, came to Chatham, MA, married Ruth (probably Paine) from Truro and settled in Bangor where he had at least 8 children before he drowned in 1831. See Who's who in New England: a biographical dictionary of leading living men ... edited by Albert Nelson Marquis, page 652.

Possible that Ruth Paine is connected to Mayflower passenger Stephen Hopkins.

Sure!! I posted the vitals/photos so that maybe all the trees out there that are wrong will get corrected :-) Spead the word!! How are you related to the Lansil's? I am still trying to get Charles back to France (even took a week long French genealogy course in Salt Lake), no luck yet!

The Lansils would be cousins. They are in the Mayhew line. My interest is in Mary McFadden and her marriage to Nathaniel Mayhew.

Andrew Mayhew m. Mary (Polly) Howard

Martha Colby m. James Lansil

How would this look to you?
Nathaniel Mayhew and Mary McFadden
Arad Powers Mayhew and Elizabeth Clark
Mary Mayhew and Timothy Colby
Martha Colby and James P. Lansil

Our family was told they came from the first white child born in Bangor ME for years. This family story had us turned in circles for years until we figured it out.
