About Ruel Seekins

This Ruel Seekins of Swanville is sometimes confused with his first cousin Ruel, born around the same time, but who lived some hundred miles north at Enfield, Penobscot, Maine with his first wife Anna Seekins who died in 1870, and with his second wife Lorenah (Folsom) Seekins. That family is all buried at Dodlin Cemetery in Enfield, along with that Ruel's father Benjamin Seekins.

It is not yet clear whether the "Dianna," as married to this Ruel, is his correct wife, or is she merely confusion with the other Anna who married the Enfield Ruel.

The Maine marriage record for "Ruel Seekens" of 13 March 1834, to "Dianna Seekins" seems to be a good match for that other Ruel's marriage to Anna instead. The timeline is a perfect fit, for the birth of the children and the ages of those parents.

Nothing further can be found for this Ruel or "Dianna." There is no other Anna Seekins, or Dianna Seekins, who can be found in the right age range to account for this marriage record belonging to this Ruel. And in any case, the supposed maiden name of Seekins is probably in error, especially for that other small Enfield branch of the family, sons of Benjamin.
