The Yeatons are from the Shoal of Maine. Most of this work that I am writing from was not done by me it was done by Martin Hollick who has done a lot of work on the Yeatons line. I will be searching for Cemetery info and where there buried.

I am a descendent of the Verrill's of Patch Mountain. I am trying to piece together their geneology. My grandmother was Ruby Verrill Rogers and she passed away in August 1934 when my mother and her twin were born. One twin lived with the uncle and grandfather, George and Charles while the other (my Mom) went to live with an unrelated person (Celia Davis) in Lovell.
Would love any information on the Verrills.
What we know is William Bryant along with his father and we thing two brothers, settled in Appleton (though I believe it was…Continue

In Maine we don't usually go to the county courthouse to find vital records. In this and other New England states, birth, death and marriage records have been kept by towns and cities since colonial days. Municipal clerks in Maine were sometimes expected to return copies of these records to the state, but only in 1892 did this become standard practice. There is, though, one important set of vital records that may be found at Maine courthouses.…Continue
