Lithobolia, or the Stone-Throwing Devil

I read the book by: The Devil of Great Island, by Emerson W. Baker.  It was a very good account a case of "Witch Craft" or poltergeits activity in the town of Great Island in 1682 and the tavern of George and Alice Walton.  The event was witnessed  Richard Chamberlain, the secretary of the colony of New Hampshire,  was boarding at the Walton tavern.  He kept a journal account of the incedent which he published in 1698. In his account he names the event Lithobolia and calls it…

Maps of Salem Villiage and Witch Trials, and Links to other information.

 

Here is a link for maps of Salem Village with property owners name. It is a very good resource.

This is a link to an online book of the first Massachusetts census taken 1765.  It does not give names of land owner, but it is a very good representation of just how many adult males there were living in Massachusetts.  …

Hi Mary Lee Allen

Wow was your granny Catherine Estelle adopted by Avon Curtis?  Waldo, Maine sure was a popular place.  I found many Bagley's there too.

My Grandmother Foster family lived in Aroostock County Maine.  My Great grandmother was called "Addie Mae"  name is Adalaide Melissia Stathem.  Addie Mae married James Cutbush FOSTER. Cutbush Father was Nathaniel Foster from New Brunswick Canada but raised his children in Montecello, Maine.

Addie Mae and Cutbush had following kids:  Orrin, Frank, Olive and Catherine Estelle (my grandmother).  Addie left Cutbush and all the children except my grandmother, Catherine.  Addie ran off with a man name Avon J Curtis and they raised granny as a Curtis in Waldo, Maine.

Hi, Barbara,  I'm hoping this gets to you!  I must have missed a chapter on responding to queries!   This is re the Witch business;  "Qualifying Ancestors for Witch Society Members" has a site:  http://suite101.com/article/qualifying-ancestors-for witch-society-members

 

They have a list of witches, and Susanna (North) Martin is listed.  Take a look, and you may find more leads.  I have a couple in my tree, and I think there are a few more hanging off the limbs!     Let us know if this helps!

I again Barbara.  Thank for for the offer to search, however I don't believe any of my Mercier/Marshall family was in Penobscot County.  They immigrated to Waterville from Canada.  That info I have from a book.
Thank you again!

Hi Barbara,

Thanks for getting in touch.  Maybe you can help me with the Shoreys I am researching.

Carrie F. Shorey was born about 1860 in Palermo, Maine, and died on 5 April 1912 in Palermo.  She was the daughter of Appleton Shorey and Clarissa Varney.  Carrie married George W. Norton, who was born in 1849 in Searsmont, and died in 1933 in China, Maine. 

Appleton Shorey, as I have heard, was in the Civil War.  He was captured, and died in prison in Salisbury, NC.

I would love to get some more information on Carrie and her parents, and hopefully continue with Appleton's ancestry. 

As for the Nortons, Carrie Shorey's husband, George W Norton, was the son of Hiram Norton and Anne Wellman.  I do not have any more info on them.

I would appreciate any info or suggestions that you may have.

Steve

Hi Barbara,
Thank you for the notes.  I don't have a David Mercier, but some were changed and some were not.  As I'm finding out on both sides of the family, names were changed (or not) to disassociate from family members, but I'm finding them.
Would you happen to know if there are Waterville area newspapers available on-line?  I'm not finding any of the Waterville papers available and was hoping to not have to go to Augusta when I vacation up there...
Thanks again for welcoming me!
Kathy

Hi Barbara 

  The map of Machias, ME from 1700's has Fosters on there I believe.  Or maybe it is from 1850 probably the 1850 date.  Where did your family's name come from?  England or Scotland or Ireland
