er Chris Dunham on Maine Genealogy:
“I transcribed early Turner marriage records several years ago, and according to my notes Zadock Keen of Hebron and Rebeca Marthers of Buckfield married 19 July 1796. Rebecca was evidently the daughter of John and Hannah Mathews of Buckfield, though she is not listed among their children in the History of Buckfield (probably because she died at a fairly young age):

“John Matthews, a Revolutionary soldier, with wife, Hannah, settled in the s. e. part of the town before 1800. They came here from the vicinity of Portland. We have no dates of their deaths, children all born before coming here: Valentine, b. Sept. 3, 1767, m. Sarah Coburn ; Hannah, b. Mar. 9, 1770, m. Jonas Coburn; Lucy, b. Aug. 15, 1773; John, Jr., b. Aug. 23, 1777; Samuel, b. June 22, 1779 ; Caroline, b. Aug. 7, 1782 ; Wm. b. Mar. 29, 1784, m. Eliza Buck.”

The Vital Records of Hartford, Oxford Co., ME, lists “Mr. John Mathews died March 10, 1826, about 85” (73).

John and Hannah Matthews’ children are listed in Buckfield records and Rebecca is not there; however, all handwriting in these records are the same: it looks like they’ve been transcribed from earlier records. They may not be definitive.
