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?

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!

Thanks so much for the newspaper article you posted for me. I am definitely interested! You've been a great help to me and I've been promoting this site on my blog (I just started in late February) and by word of mouth.

Hi Chris,

I am curious how you are related to the Coolidge line. The newest addition to the Coolidge Clan from Bethel is my grandson. I will try to go to your website and see if anything rings a bell.
