More Benjamin Foss Sources from Google

I decided to spend more time on Google this week to continue my search for Benjamin Foss.

First, I found out another great piece of source information that pointed me to who Benjamin’s parents were and possibly the emigrating ancestor. This information came from the Genealogical and family history of the state of Maine, Vol. IV

FOSS

Benjamin Foss was probably a grandson of John Foss, the emigrant mentioned in the preceding narrative. He was in Scarborough in 1700 upon the resettlement of the town after its evacuation in 1676 on account of the Indian delegations. His wife’s name was Silence. They had Samuel, William, Susanna, Benjamin, Mary, John, Hannah, Peletiah and Thomas. His wife died in 1757. He removed to Machias in 1765 to help set up civilization in that sea-blown town.

In Volume III of the Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder I found the marriage of Benjamin Foss and Silence Winch.

I think this is the last of my Google books searches for Benjamin Foss. I could not find anything else meaningful going through the results.
