Maine (abt 1824 - ?). In the 1860 census in Bloomfield, Wisconsin he is listed as William C Main with wife Elizabeth and son Martin. Then in 1870 and 1880, he is W. C. Main with Elizabeth and Martin, and Eugene and Effie (Ella). However, many people have public trees with a Wesley C (Charles) Maine with this family and I'm not convinced that my William is there Wesley.
