Greetings Chris!

My name is Renee Groleau, I live in MA, and I’m researching my family tree, along with my brother, and in doing so, a couple of branches have led me up to Maine – one being predominately, the Brickett family.

When Googling the name Alonzo B. Brickett, I came upon two pictures of gravestones that you took. That of Alonzo B. Brickett and Hannah B. Brickett and her husband Jonathan Herrick, in Chapel Cemetery, Norway, Oxford, County ME. Alonzo, I've discovered, is my 3rd great-uncle, and Hannah, my 3rd great-aunt. They were brother and sister. Their father was also named Alonzo B. Brickett. However, he's buried in Evergreen Cemetery in Portland, along with his wife and other children.

Along with seeing your pictures, we've come upon their death records, censuses and that of their brothers, sisters and parents and we’ve created memorial pages for the Brickett family on and obtained transfers from a couple people who already created pages before us.

The reason why I write to you today, is to ask if we could use the two pictures that you took, of Alonzo Jr.'s and Hannah's graves, on, on the pages we have for them? We would give you credit on each of their page and we'd be most appreciative if you grant this to us! If you wish not to share, we completely understand!

As they say, it doesn’t hurt to ask, and nothing ventured, is nothing gained...

Sincerely, & with kind regards,

Renee G.

I had trouble opening several Universalist and one Methodist church article.  As near as I can tell the problem obtains for all on the list.

In your column for Aug. 4, 2010 you list various churches for which there are articles in the Lewiston Eve. Journal.  I have looked at several and find them unreadable and unprintable.  Do you know what procedure may open them up?

Thank you so much.  I never would have found this in a zillion years.  You are so good at this.  I so appricate your taking the time to find this for me...

Oh thank you very much....I was haveing a problem their with that, but I thought I saw that you had a link or connection to the Fox Family up in Fortfair Field, Eaton area.

Chris are u connected to the Luney Family from Westfield, Maine and If so do you have any information on Lizzy Fox and her husband Frank Shorey married around 8 Nov 1919.  Frank was born sometime in 1853 and came down from Canada.  Lizzy is from canada to.  They had sons Melvin and Erman and may have had other children.  Any information you could give would be greatly appriciated.

Dear Chris, how did you find out this information so quickly?  Do you have any more information about William Wood, where he was from etc., also if you knew, Lucius Henry Woods.  On Lucius' death certificate he names Lemuel as his father.  According to vital records, Lemuel had three sons and one daughter who died.  I can not find the connection between Lemuel and Lucius.  I did read that there was a Lucius Brainard where Lemuel was living but the dates of birth do not line us with Lucius' birth.  I can't find a birth certificate for Lucius.  Death cert. says he was born in Charlestown with Lemuel's other sons but Boston does not have anyone with that name and date of birth. 1869 January.  He would be the same age as Percival Lemuel's son.  I would love to think he adopted his young cousin but the DOB does not line up.  thanks again for filling in some blanks, I was stuck!
