I would like to find the parents of Elizabeth Danforth. She lived in Eaton NH when she got married in 1831. She married Parker Spaulding and shortly after that they relocated to Belgrade, Maine. I have pictures of her parents but they only have the Danforth surname on them.Parker died in 1862 and Elizabeth died in 1882. Than you, Mary Ellen Aube
