From The History of Milo, Vol. II, by Lloyd Treworgy, page 372:

“In 1827, nevertheless, only a step in time beyond the pioneers’ life-and-death struggle for subsistence in a hostile environment – and only four years after its organization as a town- Milo’s voters authorized the expenditure of $300, a large sum to them then, ‘To support the preaching of the gospel.’

George Levi Cramp (1942-2013)

I have not seen the actual Obituary notice but I am aware that George Levi Cramp (Jr) born in Woolwich or Wiscasset, Maine died in Lakeland, Florida on Nov 26, 2013.  George was my Uncle by my birth family.  I was put up for adoption after I was born and had found George as part of my genealogy research.  Unfortunatly the family was estranged and I was not able to get a lot of information but George was very nice and shared what he knew.  Thank you George and RIP.

John B Armstrong, Civil War Veteran or Not?

I am unsure any of ancestors fought in the Civil War.  Which seems strange, since many of my ancestors resided in the United States during the war.  I have uncovered evidence that two of my relatives took part in the Civil War Battle of Portland, Maine which I blogged about in a previous post.  I don't believe either of those relatives were active…

Danville home


I have been doing family geneology for Dunham and Wilbur- all in the Rangeley area but today my interest is different.

A house is being purchased in Danville and it was built in 1789 and I would love to know, if possible who built the home and who were the prior owners. The last owner was Dr. Paul and Barbara Beegel.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you, Lori
