Descendants of James McFarland

 

Generation No. 1

1. JAMES1 MCFARLAND died 1816 in Grand Manan,NB1. He married MARGARET SMITH. She died 1833 in Trenton, Maine1.

Notes for JAMES MCFARLAND:

Trenton Maine which at first included Lamoine and parts of Hancock and Ellsworth ,was first settled by Ebenezer Thorndike in 1765.Around 1765 Thomas and James McFarland,James Smith,Rogers,Thomas and Joseph Googins began a settlemant at Kilkenny Stream( a district in the northern part of Trenton, was set off to form part of Hancock in 1898)

The exact date of the coming of the Mcfarlands to Hancock County cannot be ascertained.That they came previous to 1768 is shown by an item in the account of Ebenezer Thorndike, agent for Township #1,Trenton,:"To going up to

Skillings River to forwarn McFarlands Co. from building a mill on their falls"....

The Mcfarlands and their companions came from the vicinity of Saco, in 1765, according to tradition that has been handed down in the family of Thomas McFarland.The Mcfarland brothers married sisters,James marrying Margaret and Thomas marrying Jane Smith about year 1770 at londonerry,New Hampshire.With few exceptions the Mcfarlands of Hancock County trace their ancestry back to these brothers ,and ,as will appear later,most of them are traceable to Thomas rather than to James McFarland.

James McFarland, one of the early settlers at Killenney stream,Trenton, took up a lot of 54 acres 124 rods on thewest side of Skillings River adjoining the lots of his brother Thomas, on the south where he engaged in farming and milling.

His farmhouse was located abiut four rods south of the present road and thirty rods from the river bank.We have no knowledge of his parents or when and where he was born, nor his wifes parents or date and place of her birth.

During the Revolutionary War he was Lieutenant in Capt.Daniel Sullivans Company,Col.Benjamin Fosters 6th Lincoln Co.Militia Regt and served at machias.His commission was dated April 30,1777: he was discharged Oct.7,1777.The company was called out for service three times.The town records show that James McFarland was selectman of Trenton for several years.Late in life he moved to Grand Manan,N.B., where it is supposed he died

in 1816-1818.He married Margaret Smith who died in Trenton in 1833-34.There children are on Family page.
