I'm gradually getting many more gravestone photos uploaded. Working on completing Cambridge Maine, plus many other scattered around the state, and trying to get every Leavitt stone, and my many Maine family names. Check back often at www.RolandRhoades.com/cemeteries.htm

Hi Roland,

Good to hear from a new cousin. Sorry I was so long answering.I have 2 questions. Where do you live? and How did you hear about our Leavitt reunion?

We have met for 5 years this Sept' We meet at our Heritage village of Leavitt's Head which is a tiny little village in Charlotte County , New Brun

swick Canada Our ancesters David and Elisha Leavitt,rowed into the shores of what is now Leavitt's Head. They were escaping from their ugly stepmother. David , My great great grandfather settled at Leavitt's Head while his brother Elisha settled in LaTete just a short distance from Leavitts. Head That's how our Leavitt family got started

I have alot more info and love to share. I will look forward to hearing from you    !
