Ebenezer Cleaves

Fellow MGS member Jim Richard is looking for his 6th great-grandfather Ebenezer Cleaves. Ebenezer was in Danville, Maine, he then migrated to Norway Maine.

His son, Charles Cleaves was born in 1793. He too was in Norway, then moved to Abbot, Maine. He died before Sept 1862. First found in Norway Maine in 1814, married Betsy Lombard, served in Capt. Bailey Bodwell's Company, Lt. Col. Ryerson's Regt. 14-24 Sept 1814. Does any one know anything about Ebenezer and Charles and there families and/or their ancestors?

Also Charles had a brother named Humphrey Cleaves born 1789/90? Perhaps coming from Greenwood, Maine, a farmer who lived near Crooked River in West Norway, married ca. 1811 Abigail Pool, b 1790, dau. of Joshua Pool. They had a number of children.

Charles & Betsy also had children. I have the names and dates of Humphrey and Charles' children and some info about them.

If anyone has any info about Ebenezer and Charles and their families and/or ancestors, he would appreciate your getting in touch with him.
