      I'm still trying to find more info on my 4th
      ggps, John Bickford & Amy Stevens, mar. 1 Nov 1809 at
      Kennebec, ME. John was s/o Benjamin Bickford & Lydia
      Stanton, b 1782 Goldsboro, ME. Amy was b ca 1785 in ME.
      She is said to be a d/o a Jonathan Stevens who served
      in the Revolution. Several people have posted this
      line, making Amy a d/o Jonathan Stevens & Eleanor
      Adams, but they mar. Oct 1785 & had a known child b
      1786. This doesn't fit w/ the info from the 1850 & 1860
      Censuses of Marion Co., OH, where John died in 1862 & Amy
      in 1870. The Census actually shows them b MA, but ME
      was part of MA in the 1780s. Another Jonathan Stevens
      mar. Bethular Littlefield 25 Oct 1769 in Wells, York,
      ME, but I can't make contact with the poster of the
      data. I don't have names for any siblings of Amy,
      though I do have a listing of her known children.
      Because John & Amy's household contained a Benjamin
      Bickford b ca 1847 & a Ruby Bickford b ca 1839, some
      researchers list them as children of the couple. Amy was too
      old to be their mother. They may have been
      grandchildren (though I have no data on a possible son) or
      niece & nephew. The Bickford surname is often spelled
      "Bigford" or "Brickford" in the records. On my gggmor's
      death certificate, her mother's maiden name appears as
      "Bicford." John & Amy moved to OH about 1815, & lived in
      several localities before settling in Marion Co. in 1831,
      a few months before their daughter Patience married
      my ggggf, Newton Messenger, there (11 Dec 1831).
      Does anyone else have additional info on this family?

        Hi! My Great Grandfather George B. Gardner was born in Mass. His
        father died when George was around six. He then went to live with an
        Uncle. Could your Gardner and my Gardner be related? Connie
