    The D. Bradford Damon complete copy was received 18 Nov 1991 from
    {101 Newbury St, Boston MA 02116}
    KIDS:
    Abstract of Albion ME records as seen in old record cards in ME archives
    as reported by Virginia T. Merrill, profes-
    sional genealogist Box 316 Solon ME 04979, ARE NOT SO COMPLETELY
    CONFIRMING OF THE DAMON GENEALOGY STORY! Never is Seth Damon mentioned
    in the births of Damon kids, either just Damon or father called John
    Damon! "John Damon b. Fairfax(albion) 2 Oct 1801, 1st child of ----- and
    Margarett (Douglas) Damon, Mason b. 26 Jun 1803 2nd child of John and
    Margarett (Douglas) Damon, similarly Rebecca b. 26 Mar 1805";
    DEATH: 16 Apr 1993 D.B. Damon says somewhat inexplicably that Seth went to
    Sparta, Monroe Co, WI but that he died in Rutland Dane Co WI. Doesn't
    make sense because he died around 1850 while family was still in
    Dane Co, they didn't go to Monroe Co until about 1854;
    17 Mar 1993 letter from Betty Demmming of FL says that D. Bradford
    Damon is still alive 2723 Shipley Rd Apt 109 Wilmington DE 19810-3296;
    NEHGS in Boston. It doesn't give descendants any further than listed
    under the notes here of Seth Damman b. 1803/1807. The only descendant
    information obtained from complete copy is that the crosses (+ plus
    signs) by the names clearly refer to additional descendants known to
    the author. And since Seth b. ca 1803/1807 had a plus mark on page
    94, he may be the ancestor of the Dammans we're searching ;
    PAGE 94, 26, 9, 2, page 1 trace the line of ancestry indicated for
    above Seth Dammon by the above D. B. Damon book;
    NARRATIVE OF 2 Nov 1991 in Ellensburg,Kittitas,WA FROM RUTH DAMMAN, born about
    1910:
    the most ancient Damman ancestor that she knows for sure is her paternal
    grandfather, Jeremiah Douglas Damman. So I started this chart with him
    as number 1 for this study. She says she has more recent people and
    events completely under control.;
    SPELLING OF SURNAME: her father's sister spelled it DAMMON, but she
    reports that the 1850 census spelled it DAMMAN. Apparently the
    immigrant ancestor spelled it John DAMON in 1600's in Scituate.
    Plymouth,MA, but were jumping to conclusions too fast there!;
    JEREMIAH DOUGLAS DAMMON about 1890 in Kittitas Co, WA wrote in a Co. History
    "mugbook" that he was born 22 Jun 1825 in 'Seabeck' Maine and that he
    had moved to Wisconsin in 1843--verified by her transcription of 1850
    census of Rutland,Dane, WI where in family #250 or 251 we see kid born
    about 1842 ME and next kid about 1845 WI--this is a Seth Damman family,
    #250 is, but maybe not her direct ancestor. Possibly from Co. History,
    and his Civil War pension file, she learned that J. D. Damman and second
    wife and family came from IA or WI to Ogden UT in fall of 1870, then on
    to Kittitas Co, WA in 1871.;
    MARRIAGES: Ruth sent for her grandfathers marriage license information:
    1847 Rutland,Dane WI he married Mary Jane Cushing, a witness was an
    Abigail. Ruth notices that Abigail Damman on the 1850 census wan't born
    until just AFTER the marriage, so not THAT Abigail. Perhaps from Co. History
    Ruth learned that Mary Jane Cushing died after 3 sons;
    10 May 1865 Montfort,Grant,WI in SW corner of state, her grandfather
    married Sabrina June by Rev S.L. Lake, whose wife Sarah lies buried
    right here in IOOF cemetary in Kittitas Co,WA.
    OTHER INFORMATION: possibly from Co. History Ruth learned that her grand-
    mother Sabrina was born in 1838 in Brookville,Ont,Canada. Presumably
    among several kids, her father Arthur June Damman was born Algona,IA
    and her aunt, who spelled her name Dammon, was born 1872 in Naneum
    Canyon area of Kittitas Co, WA. Her father at one time ran a sawmill
    and a grist mill right along the Yakima River. ;

    Ruth remarked that there were family stories of an uncle Israel who
    was a freeloading itinerant preacher. He once kicked someone in the
    stomach who refused to give him a handout;
    ##############################################################################
    WEAKEST LINK IN TENTATIVE PEDIGREE CHART: That Margaret Douglas was actually
    as stated 78 yrs 10 mos 3 days old at death 3 Jan 1856: if there's any
    error there to make her a much younger person,then Margaret Douglas would
    more likely be the mother, rather than the grandmother of Jeremiah
    Douglas Damman b. 22 Jun 1825. But as it stands, she would've been
    48 years old at his birth--which requires another generation according
    to current genealogical standards, e.g. Marsha Hoffman Rising's lectures
    at NGS 1991 convention;
