Mary Ann Power
Father: William Power (a sea captain of Waterford, Ireland; later a fisherman in Herring Cove, Nova Scotia)
Mother: Mary Roche from Bristol, England (She ran away with sea captain leaving her sister in a faint on the floor).

Maria J. Shaw
Vertie May Moore recorded this: "I am a descendent of Farquehar Shaw who was born in Highland Scotland.
The eldest son was Joseph Shaw and so on down and one Joseph Shaw - about 1790 or 1800 came to Yarmouth, Nova Scotia.
Maria J. Shaw married John Knox Moore on 26 November 1851 at Danvers, Massachusetts.
At the time of the Civil War, they lived at Candia, New Hampshire in the Moore family home.
As a child I can just remember my great, grandmother Shaw, she came to the United States to live with her daughter in her old age.
Her youngest son was Joseph Shaw, but he had no boys, although well known in Massachusetts as Fire Marshall of the State."

William B. Thorne
Perhaps the son of Amos and Hannah (age 64 and 66 and living with him in 1850).
And perhaps the grandson of Nathan (age 91 and living with William in 1850 census, farmer).
Siblings: George Everett, John Herbert, Nathan Idelbert, Maria Florence (Rand), Joseph Shaw
