"Sadly, I didn't find the branch of the Ackley family, much less the Bible records I was looking for.  In spite of the fact that Maine was a territory of MA until 1820, there isn't a lot.  I'm a member, and I've visited…"

I would love to exchange emails. My email is capthitop@juno.com. It's interesting too that Sewell was a captain on the ship and loved the water, my Dad did as well. He would go out on his boat for hours and hours, leaving the house sometimes before the sun came up till after the sun went down. I'm so excited about pictures. It's interesting to see if there's any similarities between my sister and myself to them. So thank you in advance. Theresa

I never really knew my Dads family most of them passed before I was born and he choose not to talk much about them. So any stories you have I would love to hear. Thanks Theresa

I did read the story of Sewell coming back to Syracuse when he wife sent for him. I believe he was in correspondence with her and that they had regular letters sent between them. I'll have to go through some of my notes, but I recall that he was very happy out west and he was going to send for the rest of his family, but something happened that made him come back. I would love to see a picture of him. My grandfather Howard also worked on the railroad too as well as a couple of his sons.

My great great grandfather was Sewell Trafton, his daughter Nettie, married my great grandfather Charles Seabrook, and had my grandfather Howard as one of their children. Several generations of Seabrook men worked on the railroad as did Sewell. It also looks like after looking over several years of census that he was a single father when he came to Syracuse. I'm interested in any stories you may have about the Trafton's. My dad never really talked about his family.

Hi Jeanette  Do you already know your Berry tree?  I am also a Berry descendant from Machias, ME.  Have a Gardner in my line and a Fogg.  Have you checked out the map of 1860 of the state of Maine?  They even have who lived in each house.  I found my Bagley's (John Adam Bagley married Lucy Berry (daughter of Westbrook Berry) on the map in Waite, ME.  Did not expect to find that but thru many hours of checking each county (starting with Washington County) I got lucky
