Mehitable7 Quimby
(Eliphalet6, Daniel5, John4, John3, Robert2), born about 1799, married first, March 15, 1821 to Jonathan FOGG, both listed  'of Clinton (Maine)', and married second, May 1, 1844 at Athens, Somerset, Maine to Caleb CLOUGH (his second wife). Caleb served in the 33 US Infantry in the War of 1812. In 1850 Mehitable and Caleb are living in Moscow, Somerset, Maine, in the housefold of Alpheus B. WHITE and family. They are still present in Moscow in 1860, he aged 78 and she aged 60. By 1870 Mehitable, aged 73, is living in Moscow with James B. MESSER and wife Elvira, but Caleb is not present, and  there is also a (double) entry for a Mehitable CLOUGH, aged 73 also living in Buxton, York, Maine with Charles CLOUGH, she listed as mother, and in 1880 she is aged 84 living in Hollis, York, Maine still with Charles and family.

[**NOTE: It is unclear at this time if the later two entries from York county are the same Mehitable CLOUGH, research is ongoing. ~Dee~]

***The missing pieces that allowed the family connection for Mehitable was kindly provided by Mary Miller, without whom, we would  merely have another brick wall still standing!

(Eliphalet6, Daniel5, John4, John3, Robert2), born between 1782 and 1794, was living with his brother Eliphalet7 in Athens, Maine as late as 1810, but not present in 1820.
