Desperately trying to find record of birth for Tryphena Hallett probably about 1787, presumably daughter of Solomon Hallett and Deborah Chapman. Solomon died in Oakland, ME and buried in Old Oakland Cemetery.

Try writing to the public library for that area and ask for a copy of the obit...it may list the birth date...go to www.libraryspot.com to find the library for the area. Most people were born, lived and died in the same area at that time so there is a good chance you may find it. Also write to the cemetery and ask for the "burial records" (use those words). I've that and got an enormouse amount of material (some of which is really of no use but was interesting).

Joanna (Scudder) Hallett, the wife of Solomon is buried in the Old field or Barnard Cemetary in Sidney, Maine, as are some of their children. Solomon came from West Waterville (now Oakland). Winslow, Maine, was a home to some of the Hallett's as well.
