Towne Lineage

My great great grandparents on my fathers side are Eliza Jane Towne born September 20, 1833 in Altabase, Quebec, Canada and George Washington Wentworth born May 17, 1834, joining the Massachusettes and New Hampshire colonial Wentworth and Towne families in matrimony and creating hundreds of descendants who are alive today.

I am also searching for the following who were married to Towne and/or Wentworth ancestors and who lived in Massachusettes and/or New Hampshire primarily: Nancy Young (m.William Towne @ 1820), Hannah Frost of Exeter, ME (m. Benjamin Towne, @1790), Lydia Hopkins (m. Israel Towne, July 1760, d. 1826 at age 89, Grace Gardner (m. Israel Towne, 1720, Topsfield, Mass.), Margaret Case, (m. Joseph Towne @1699), Phebe Perkins (m. Joseph Towne @1664 in Topsfield, Mass.)
