I have been doing the research on this family tree for the last six years. I was surprised at the information I found. If what I have found is true some of the information that was in the orginal FAMILY TREE FILE, that Aunt Ruth had, is INCORRECT. Pat, my first wife, had seen the file that I am talking about and the information she passed on to us is not correct. For instance, our grandfather, EDGAR H.'S father was, according to his death certificate, LINCOLN JACOB BABCOCK. Also according to this death certificate LINCOLN was born in PEMBROKE, MAINE. After checking with City Hall in Pembroke the only information that they had was his MARRIAGE CERTIFICATE. When I found that out I went to THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER DAY SAINTS (LDS). I ordered a film number 0010840, which is from EASTPORT,MAINE, where our 2nd great-grandfather, ENOCH BABCOCK, was born. When searching this film I found a JACOB LINCOLN BABCOCK, born MARCH 16, 1836, which by coincidence is also the date of LINCOLN JACOB BABCOCK'S birthday. I also found a marriage certificate for ENOCH BABCOCK marrying MARY BASTON. On LINCOLN JACOB'S death certificate it lists MARY BASTON as his mother. Information I received from HEATHER E. (BABCOCK) CHEVALIER states that LINCOLN OR JACOB'S mother was MARY SHACKFORD. I am still trying to verify this information. I learned that ENOCH BABCOCK was not born in EASTPORT, MAINE, but PERRY, MAINE. I have yet to prove that and possibly a marriage certificate for him and MARY SHACKFORD.
