In doing our research on our Maine Sabans, we have accumulated a lot of data on Sabans in the Northeast and other places as well. We will be putting each one up here, hoping to find a common link. And at the same time, hoping that we can help someone in their research.

Palermo, Waldo County, Maine

1850 U.S. Census, Palermo, Waldo County, Maine

Household 393, 398

Samuel J. BRIMYON (sp?) age 65 M W Farmer $250 Born Maine

Anna age 51 F W Born Maine

Rufus W. SABIN(might be Sabins) age 8 M W Born Maine Attends School

Note: This is close to Louis Saban Jr., Thomas Saban and Hiram Saban. We feel there is a possibility that this is another son of Louis Saban Sr. and Abigail. And also feel there is a possibility that Anna, age 51, is Child #6 of Louis Sr. and Hannah.

We will backtrack through the earlier census for the Brimyon (sp?) family.

Benjamin is listed living with Thomas Saban in 1850, listed as age 23 and working as a millman.

We believe Benjamin is a brother of Thomas.

There is a Benjamin D. Saban listed on pg 784 of Whitefield, Lincoln County, Maine 1860 census.

The Sabin Association shows that a Benjamin D. Saban married Emma Davis on October 15, 1854 in Whitefield, Lincoln County, Maine.

John Sabine - Soldier and Ann Deer, both in this parish. Elder Deacon Douglas

Notes: Apparently the only British unit in Perth at that time was the 42nd Regiment, better known as the Black Watch. We have been told this unit was sent to Ireland before 1745 (final year of the Scot uprisings, and the Battle of Culloden). And also from Ireland the unit was sent to Canada, and the men given land grants in Canada. However, we have not been able to obtain records of the unit. Will post it when we do.
