      ____________________________________

      from a posting by Travis Miscia:

      I don't know the children for Benjamin & Peobe either, but I can nameone of the children of his brother, Ebenezer. Ebenezer married SusannahVarnum, Phebe's sister, and also moved to Maine. He probably had morechildren, but the one son I have for him was Sylvanus Poor, b. 1808, m.Mary Merill. Sylvanus was the grandfather of Henry Varnum Poor, who isfamous in the railroad industry.

      Benjamin and Ebenezer were sons of Samuel Poor and Deborah Kimball,Samuel being a grandson of Daniel of Andover. I'll see what I can findon the other Benjamin.

      ___________
      and another:

      I've just found the children of Benjamin & Phebe. They are:
      Phebe Poor, b. 24 Jun 1754
      Patty Poor, b. 23 Dec 1758
      Benjamin Poor, b. 15 Sep 1760, m. Joanna Batchelder
      Patty Poor, b. 24 Feb 1765
      Samuel Poor, b. 30 May 1767 m. Ann Moody Merill
      James Poor, b. 13 Dec 1769 m. Nancy Johnson
      Dorothy Poor, b. 2 Feb 1722

      Here are the male children of his brother, Ebenezer Poor:
      Ebenzer Poor II, b. 4 Jan 1758, died young
      Ebenezer Poor II, b. 28 Oct 1765, m. (1)Lucy Wasson and (2)BetseyStevens, died in Andover, ME
      Sylvanus Poor, b. 7 Mar 1768 m. Mary Merill
      William Poor, b. 3 Aug 1770, died young
      William Poor, b. 5 Sep 1776 m. Susan Farrington

      It seems most likely that Benjamin Joy Poor was a great-grandson ofeither Benjamin or Ebenezer. Benjamin II and Joanna Batchelder hadanother son Benjamin, born Feb. 2 1794. Samuel and Anna Merill had ason Benjamin born Sept. 26, 1804.
