Charles T Folsom - Birth

Charles T Folsom - Birth

Surnames: Folsom
My 4x great grandfather, Charles T Folsom was born (according to the death records of three of his children) in Leeds, Androscoggin, Maine on 3 Aug 1808.

I'm wondering if birth records exist from this place and time. I've tried numerous avenues to determine his parents and so far I've not found anything. I'm hoping that his birth record, if it could be found, would finally settle this matter.

Thanks for any information!

I am going to the state library/archives this week and can look there for his birth record. Do you know if he married? Marriage records also sometimes had parents names listed.

He was married, but the record does not list his parents. According to the Folsom Genealogy, his parents were Gordon Folsom and Nancy Taylor, and he was born in Leeds on 1 Aug 1808. I would love to verify this with an actual document, however.

Ok, I'll see if I can find any record of his birth in the Maine State Archives when I go on Wednesday.

Sorry to report, we could not find any records pertaining to Charles T Folsom. We looked for a birth record and potential death records and found nothing. Sorry!!
