SUSANNAH WILSON

                               August 6, 1780 To March 22, 1857

John1 Beedle was born 16 January 1770 in Devonshire, England (possibly

 Tiverton) {16, 18, 19}. He married 11 April 1799 to Susannah Wilson {19}. She was a native of Dorchester, Mass., born 6 August 1780, the daughter of Abiather and Mary(?) Wilson. Susannah was living with the family of James Bowdoin at the time of her marriage. She came to the household when only nine years old, working as a servant without any stated wages, and without schooling. She managed to learn to read and to write her name, but that about all the education Miss Wilson had with the Bowdoin family. John Beedle, age 28, and Susanna Wilson, age 18, married in April 1799. At the time of the wedding, Mr. Bowdoin gave Susanna 50 acres of undeveloped land in Bowdoinham, which was worth 50 dollars at the time.{19}

 

John died 19 December 1839 at Richmond, ME. Susannah died 22 March 1857. {16, 18}
