Note: Your posting about Deborah Niles sounds as though you might have seen my little article in Maine Families in 1790 for the brothers Benaiah & Nathan Niles. Deborah Niles was the daughter of Benaiah/Benajah & Martha (Allen) Niles of Turner, ME, & Bridgewater, Ma. Benaiah came with his brother to what is now Turner about 1778 from Bridgewater. He is buried at the Fern St. Cemetery just north of Auburn, Androscoggin Co., Maine. He's there with his only son, James (age 97), and James' wife Mercy. His grave has a Rev War marker. Martha, for some reason, is buried at the cemetery on High Street, a short ways away. The High St. Cem is at the crest of a hill, next to a church,nicely kept, with the graves facing the rising sun from the east in the christian tradition. James left descendants but none are living now at Turner that I know of, but there may be some of his line at Kittery, Me.
Benaiah's will is filed in Oxford County, which at the time, included Turner. Benajah was born about 1747 and descends from Nathan 4 & his wife Freelove (Sweet)Niles (John 3, Increase 2, John 1) Niles. Nathan & Freelove married in 1741 at E. Greenwich, RI, where Nathan lived for several years. Freelove's parents were Richard 4 & Fear (Jones) Sweet; Richard was a church elder at E. Greenwich.
"Maine Families in 1790, vol. 4," is published by Picton Press of Maine. Benaiah is incorrectly called Benjamin in the Maine Old Cemetery (MOA)records at Augusta, Me. Many of the families at Turner were from Pembroke & Bridgewater,Ma.
