James7 Quimby
(John6, Daniel5, John4, John3, Robert2), Married Diadame Sallivena (Sally Lavenia) PUK/PECK September 10, 1812 at Clinton, Maine.. She petitioned the government for a pension due to his military service, but was denied. They were married in Clinton, Kennebec, Maine on September 10, 1812. She was the daughter of Joshua and Diadame S. PECK. Mrs. Quimby had first married William KENDALL in 1809, also at Clinton, and she later married Michael CASEY/CASY evidently after the death of James. Since his only heirs are his siblings, it would appear he had no children at the time of his death. (Diadame's family had deep roots in Bristol, Massachusetts and Clinton, Kennebec, Maine.)

James Quimby served as a member of Timothy L. Stevens Company at Mt. Vermon, Maine in Lt. Col. Ellis Sweet's Regiment in the War of 1812 which served at Wiscasset, Maine September 12th through September 25th, 1814 (see Portland Argus, March 2, 1914)

Benjamin7 Quimby
(John6, Daniel5, John4, John3, Robert2), born about 1795. Married July 25, 1819 at Clinton, Kennebec, Maine to Naoma HOBBS.

No children confirmed, but by 1870 in Palmer, there are Mary Quimby, aged 44, born in Canada living with James and Eunice SHARP and family and also in a boarding are Evaline Quimby aged 19 and Ahnna Quimby aged 14 all born in Canada. By 1880 none of them are found in the census extractions. Per his death record, he died in Salem, Essex, Mass., August 11, 1859, he was the son of "Ethan" and Tanesora/Tamera Quimby and married.

Joseph7 Quimby
(John6, Daniel5, John4, John3, Robert2), born 1801 in Maine, married Ann OSBORN, living 1830 in Clinton, Kennebec, Maine with 1 son and 2 daughters, and evidently his mother Tamson. In 1840 Ann is the head of the household according to the enumeration at Winslow, Kennebec, Maine with 2 sons and 4 daughters. By 1850 Joseph has returned home in Winslow and also has **Ephraim WILSON, aged 64 living in his household, and Joseph is still in Winslow in 1860, but by 1870 Ann is in Winslow, and Joseph is in Waterville at the town farm. I find no further enumerations for Joseph7, but Ann is still in Winslow in 1880, living with married daughter Mary.
