Family Tree Maker 2010 for the Mac Issue

Today as I was documenting another branch of my Foss family tree and I hit a snag in Family Tree Maker 2010 for the Mac. The issue seems to manifest itself when I attach two people that already exist in my Family Tree Maker file.

Issue: Israel Foss and Dorcas Foss are siblings. They are both children of Benjamin Foss and Sarah Mitchell. One of Israel’s daughters, Caroline, married Jonathan Clark. As always, I wanted to document his parents for my file. I found that his parents were Edward Clark and Dorcas Foss. I entered Edward Clark manually as the father of Jonathan Clark and then used the “Attach Mother” menu item to attach Dorcas Foss as the mother of Jonathan. Unfortunately, the relationship does not show in the 4-generation chart.

In the screenshot in the chart above you can see Dorcas Foss does not show her mother and father, but it shows the parents correctly for Israel Foss.

In the next screenshot you can see Israel as the sibling to Dorcas. Also, Benjamin & Sarah are shown as the parents. However, in the small chart above the relationships, note that her parents are not shown in the chart.

I checked to see if there was a software update available and there was not one available at this time.

Has anyone else seen this issue?

Narrative for Israel Foss b c1772-1773

Today I began putting a narrative together for Israel Foss. I like to use the format from the series “Maine Families in 1790”. I like being able to read the sources as I read the narrative.  Unfortunately, it doesn’t look as nice on wordpress as it does in MS Word.

Israel and Betsey had 13 children. I think that documenting them in this narrative will be my focus for the next several weeks. For this week I have only added their first child, Charles. I am a descendant of Charles and Sarah (Davis) Foss.

Patrick and Sarah Conners of Machias, Me – Where did they come from?

After determining the approximate birth date for Betsey (Conners) Foss from the census, I went to the back to the Original Records of Maine Towns and Cities: The Town of Machias to find Betsey Conners birth and parents. After researching the census, her birth is estimated to be between July 16, 1786 and Jul 15, 1787. I was quickly able to locate what I needed to determine her birth date and parents.

On page 57 of the PDF I found the following:

Betsey Conners May 4 1787 Patrick & Sarah Conners
John Conners July 22 1789
Peggy Conners Aug 24 1791 Sept 24 1791
James Conners April 12 1793
Jerome Conners April 18 1795

After finding that I went back to the other Conners entry on page 55.

Holy Conners March 5 1785 Patrick & Sarah Conners

Interestingly, in both historical books that I have from Machias Betsey’s last name is written as Connors. Patrick Connors is also mentioned in the tax payers list. However, in the Machias VR the last name is spelled Conners. Which is right? Well what I did to determine the right spelling of the last name was to look at the grave records found in the Maine Old Cemetery Association for Washington County. I found two of Betsey’s brothers records. Both of the stones have the last named spelled as Conners.

Machias Cemetery, Court Street, Machias, Maine, Washington County

Page 573: Conners, John died 12-15-1855, Ae 66 Yrs.
Betsey, wf. died 3-4-1870, Ae 69 Yrs. 10 Months

Page 587: Conners, James F d. Sept. 8, 1865 Ae 72 yrs 5 mos.

I have not found the marriage record for Patrick and Sarah Conners. I was not able to find Sarah’s last name. Furthermore, I am unsure where they came from. This mystery will have to stay on the back burner for a little while.

Birth date for Israel Foss based on the US Census

I was not able to find a recorded birth for Benjamin & Sarah (Mitchell) Foss’s son, Israel Foss, in the Original Records of Maine Towns and Cities: The Town of Machias. Because of this I need to use alternate sources. Today I am checking out the Machias census records on ancestry.com to see if I can find new leads.

1810 U.S. Census: Maine, Washington County, Machias

By 1810 Israel had three children. However, one of them had passed away in 1808.  This left two adults and two children in the household at the time of enumeration. After reviewing the household composition in the census I can then build out a comparison table to the known birth records. This is very helpful when working in a census in a city that has a lot of households with the same names.

Males

1 – Under 10  (Charles)

1 – 26-44 (Israel)

1820 U.S. Census: Maine, Washington County, Machias

The total number in the household in 1820 is 9. This is made up of 2 parents and 7 children. Census enumeration and comparison chart is below.

1830 U.S. Census: Maine, Washington County, Machias

By 1830 Israel had 12 children.  Two of them had passed away by 1830. Furthermore, both Charles and Betsey, the two oldest children, should no longer living in Israel’s household.  This would make the composition be the two parents and eight children.

1850 U.S. Census: Maine, Washington County, Machias

In 1850 the Census began enumerating all members of the household and detailed each persons age. In addition to the complete enumeration of the entire family, they also started clearly labeling the day when the enumeration took place.

Israel is listed at 77 years old and the date of enumeration was on July 16, 1850.  This would put his birth between July 16, 1772 and Jul 15, 1773.

Betsey is listed at 63 years old.  This would put her birth between July 16, 1786 and Jul 15, 1787.

    Betsey  “ 63 f    
    Henry   “ 19 m    

The last thing for me to do is line up the age of Israel and Betsey with the 1810 to 1840 Censuses. I like to verify that the ages match the range.

  1810 1820 1830 1840
Israel 26-44 37 45-over 47 50-59 57 60-69 67
Betsey 16-25 23 26-44 33 40-49 43 50-59 53

Based on the evidence above I think I can conclusively state that Israel was born between July 16, 1772 and Jul 15, 1773.

Next steps for me is to go back through the Town Records to see if I can find a Betsey or Elizabeth Connors that was born between Jul 1786 and Jul 1787.

Children of Israel and Elizabeth “Betsy” (Connors) Foss

This week I am documenting a little bit about Israel Foss. Israel was the son of Benjamin and Sarah (Mitchell) Foss. I believe that I am a descendant of Benjamin through Israel. So I am going to flip through the original records of Machias to see what I can find about the children of Israel & Betsey (Connors) Foss.

On page 9 the first name is missing, but the birth date matches Sarah Foss from later on in the records.

Ann Foss     Israel and Betsey Foss     1 March 1807

On page 19 the marriage of Israel and Betsey Connors is recorded. Unfortunately there is no date that can be found with the record. It looks as though the original page is torn where the date would have been. It also ripped partially through Betsey’s name.

Israel Foss               } Machias
tsey Connors

On page 31 the death of Sarah Ann Foss is recorded. The date is in conflict with the date Betsey Foss provided later in the records. I am going to use the date found on this page as the death date.

Sarah Ann Foss    29 Nov 1808

On page 41 Lucy’s birth is recorded. The page is torn and the L in Lucy is missing. Interestingly, this is the first entry that I find that calls Betsey by Elizabeth.

ucy Foss    Israel + Elizabeth Foss     March 2nd 1813

On page 64 the birth of Charles is found. It looks like the day is written as 12, but is written as a 14 in the report by Betsey later.

Charles Foss    Decem 12 1805    Israel & Eliza Foss

On page 71 the birth of Lucy is recorded again.

Lucy Foss    2 March 1813    Israel + Elizth Foss

On page 115 the births of the children Israel and Betsey (Connors) Foss can be found. This was submitted to the town clerk by Betsey Connor. I feel very fortunate that this record was submitted.

Names When Born Parents Name Deaths
Foss Charles Dec 14 1805 Israel + Betsey Foss
Foss Sarah March 1 1807 March 1 1809
Foss Betsey March 13 1809
Foss Mary January 1 1812
Foss Lucy March 2 1814 Sept 2 1825
Foss James August 25 1815
Foss John July 25 1817 June 24 1833
Foss Sarah Sept 19 1819
Foss Caroline Sept 7 1822
Foss Albert July 10 1824
Foss Lucy July 11 1826
Foss Lucius Bowles July 25 1829
Foss Henry April 23 1831

Reported by Mrs Betsey Foss March 28, 1834 + recorded by John S Kelly Town Clerk

Unfortunately, that is all of the time that I have this week. I need to go to the office today.

Benjamin Foss Revolutionary War Records

Massachusetts soldiers and sailors of the Revolutionary War is a set of books that contain the soldiers and sailors that lived in Massachusetts and Maine. Remember Maine was part of Massachusetts and did not become a state until 1820. I bought this set of books a few years back.

The records are now also available online at the Mass.gov website. Here is the link. Below is the text that can be found for Benjamin Foss in this book.

Birth Record for Sarah (Mitchell) Foss

Well the mystery has been solved. I have found a birth record for Sarah Mitchell who was the wife of Benjamin Foss. I found the record in the Vital Records of Brunswick, Maine. I ended up looking in these records due to a lead in the book Old Kittery and Her Families.

When Israel passed away Mary (Berry) Mitchell remarried Joseph Getchell in 1750. In 1765 both the Foss and Getchell families moved to Machias. When the history of the town was written it was probably assumed that Sarah was Joseph’s daughter. Furthermore, Benjamin Foss and Sarah Mitchell were married in 1762. If she was the daughter of Joseph Getchell she would have been born after 1750. This would have made her 12 years or younger when Benjamin and Sarah got married. This would have been highly unlikely. The only record I was missing was a birth record to prove whose daughter Sarah was. Below is the information from the Vital Records. Interestingly, neither John or Sarah were recorded in the baptism records in Records of the First Congregational Church in Scarborough, Maine. However, some of Israel and Mary’s other children were recorded, which included Mary who was born on May 17th, 1736.

Israel Mitchel and Mary Mitchel and his wife
–1 their Daughter Mary Mitchel was born May 17th 1736
–2 John Mitchel son of Israel Mitchel and Mary and his wife was born October the 22th 1739
–3 Sarah Mitchel Daughter of Israel Mitchel and Mary and his wife was Born Jully the 9th 1742

Sarah Mitchell or Sarah Getchell

This week I thought I would try to find out a little more about the wife of Benjamin Foss, Sarah Mitchell. Especially since there is a discrepancy with the Machias books stating her name is Sarah Getchell versus Sarah Mitchell. Is she a Mitchell or Getchell? I went to Google books to start my search. I found a couple of sources, but I think this one is going to be a little tough to track down.

The first book I found with some lead information was Old Kittery and Her Families by Everett Stackpole. On page 610 the genealogy of the Mitchell family can be found.

  1. William Mitchell marred before 1702 Honor ——-, (2) before 1715 Elizabeth, dau. of John Tenny of Kittery and Scarborough. He lived at the Isles of Sholes and at Black Point, Scarborough, where he was killed by Indians in his field 17 April 1724. Widow Elizabeth married Benjamin Haskins, and was living in 1748. Deeds show the following children “of William Mitchel of Scarborough, formerly of Kittery.”

— Israel. M. 24 Dec. 1729, Mary Berry. He moved to New Meadows, Brunswick. His widow m. 17 July 1750, Joseph Getchell in Scarborough Children of Israel Mitchel bapt. In Scarborough, William, Mary, and Margaret.
— Christopher m. Deborah ——-, Ch. Bapt. In Scarborough,    Jonathan, Mary, William, Deborah, Josiah, Jesse and Lucy. He moved to West Bath, Me.
— John of Scituate, Mass, in 1761.
— Job m. Susanna Brown 5 Han. 1743-4. Ch. Bapt. In Scarborough, Benjamin, John, Jeremiah and William.
— William m. 31 May 1744. Hannah Berry in Scarborough.
Elizabeth m. Joseph Drisco.
— Relief m. John Berry.
— Mercy m.  James Marr 19 Mar 1746-7.

I found this read interesting for a couple of reasons. 1) If I am related to the Mitchell’s a grandfather of mine was killed Indians, This interesting part is that I am also a descendant of sachem Autumsquin. 2) Is Israel Mitchell or Joseph Getchell the father of Sarah, which was Benjamin’s wife? This is where the confusion lies.

I figured I should go back to see if there were any matches in the Church records in Scarborough for the Mitchell family. Below is what I found in the Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, VI.

[p171] 1745: June. 16, Margaret, daughter of Israel and Mary Mitchel.

In Volume III of the Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder I found the marriage of Israel Mitchell and Mary Berry. I also found the remarriage to Joseph Getchell that was mentioned in the book Old Kittery and Her Families.

By Rev. Wm. Thompson.

[p083] 1730: Dec. 24, Israel Mitchel and Mary Berry.
[p086] 1750: July 17, Joseph Gatchell and Mary Mitchell.

In Volume VIII of The Maine Historical Magazine there is a section called Notes of Machias. This section is further evidence of the marriage of Joseph Getchell and Mary (Berry) Mitchell. The date matches the record in the Scarborough records. The following text is from the Notes of Machias.

Benjamin Foss, from Scarborough, 1765: Married first Sarah Getchell Nov. 7, 1762, and second Hannah Miller prior to 1800; nineteen children, sixteen of whom had families.

Joseph Getchell, Scarborough, 1765: Married Mary Mitchell (?) July 17, 1750; Revolutionary soldier, Machias, 1777, Revolutionary pensioner; sold one-half of his homestead to Joseph Getchell, Jr., Dec. 28, 1780; two or more children.

Next I take a look at the Original Records of Maine Towns and Cities:  Town of Scarborough to see what records I can find in there.

[CD1 P189] Israel Mitchel + Mary Berry were married Dec. 24, 1730
[CD1 P200] Margret the daughter of Israel Mitchel and Mary his wife was born the 2nd Day of May 1743
[CD1 P206] Israill Mitchell ad Mary Beary his intention of marriage was entered ye 17th of October 1730.

Yes the spelling is that good in the records. I found nothing new in the records.

I am now thinking that I should look in the original records of Brunswick to see if there are any records that show the birth of Sarah or ties to Israel and Mary. However, I think I can conclude that since Mary was remarried to Joseph in 1750, Sarah would have only been 12 or younger when she was married in 1762 to Benjamin if Sarah was born as a result of that marriage.

That is all for this week.
