Descendants of Abraham and Lydia (Lombard) Nason of Standish, Maine
Abraham Nason was born at Gorham, Maine, in 1765, son of Uriah5 and Abigail (Knight) Nason. Hugh D. McLellan's History of Gorham, Me., published in 1903, included an extensive genealogical treatment of the Nason families of Gorham, but provided little information about Abraham, reporting only his birth, marriage to Lydia Lombard, and noting he lived on Standish Neck. In fact, Abraham and Lydia (Lombard) Nason were parents of eleven children, all of them attaining adult age and marrying. Following the end of the War of 1812, some of the children participated in the westward expansion, living in upstate New York, southern Quebec, Ohio, Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, and eventually points beyond. Descendants of some of the westward migrants have long been frustrated by lack of knowledge of the Nason origins of their ancestors, and this book provides some answers - a view over the proverbial brick wall, and a genealogical trail back to Maine. The first sections of the book provide an abbreviated surname ancestry for both Abraham Nason and Lydia Lombard. It is intended to connect each of them to the respective immigrant ancestor, and provide resources for those wanting to pursue their own research. From Abraham6 Nason to Renne B.12 Nason, the book provides documentation of more than 600 Nason-surnamed descendants of Abraham and Lydia, and genealogical data on more than 300 households, including married Nason daughters.
