I have just joined the Maine Genealogy Network. I am researching the Blabon Family. Richard Blaban settled in Wells, York County, Maine. I have located him as a Revolutionary War Soldier from Wells. His son, Richard Jr. was born in 1766 in Wells. I am working on updating a Family History I wrote in 1983. I have found so much more information to add to what I had and correcting mistakes that I had made. I have already found a map of Franklin County on this site and located where two…Continue

I am looking for any of the poetry or songs written by James Milee, also known as James Millea (great great grandfather of Edna St. Vincent Millay). James lived from 1755-1816.

He was well-loved for his verses which took on political as well as personal subject matter, including the "Power of Tyranny" and the "Triumph of Liberty." His songs and jingles were apparently widely sung in Maine and people reportedly…Continue

In his account he names the event Lithobolia and calls it…Continue

Alan, I have the Marriage Registration of Walter but not the birth registration of George, who was my grandfather. Walter and Katherine Tobin (not Mary) and George moved to Cranston, RI around 1930ish. George married a RI girl and moved to CT around 1940, which is where we are still.

Hi, Alan, thank you for your response. I have poured through that excellent book. It was actually one of the first books that I looked at when I started researching the family. I thought I had struck gold. Unfortunately, the author makes the distinction on page 22 that his line differs from the Wells, ME line fathered by Thomas Penny (1653). My line runs up through George P. and Melinda Bickford. I have seen references to baptism records in Wells, but haven't seen copies. I am…Continue

Any information on the Penney family would be greatly appreciated. My great grandfather was Walter Joseph Penney, who was born in Maine and moved to Massachusetts and finally Rhode Island. His son, George Joseph Sr., moved to Connecticut where the rest of my family ended up. My father was George Joseph Jr.
From what I have gathered so far, Walter's parents were George Milton and Anna (Webster) Penney which seems to make the line relatively easy to trace back to Thomas…Continue
