PEOPLE WHO HAVE DIED IN ACADIA NATIONAL PARK

It is hard to imagine that a place as peaceful and beautiful as Acadia National Park is - that people die there from horrible accidents nearly every year. The most tragic death to me seems to be the young college student who had his entire life before him, who roped down to Anemone Cave, and ancient sea cave that can be entered and explored at low tide, with a friend. The two became trapped in the cave when a storm approached, which stirred up huge waves. Each time the pair attempted to exit…

PLANE CRASH ON CEDAR SWAMP MOUNTAIN - ACADIA NATIONAL PARK

Hidden in the woods not far from the summit of Cedar Swamp Mountain in beautiful Acadia National Park are the remains of a plane that crashed into the side of the mountain during bad weather. It was in June 30, 1970 that pilot Robert McGaunn refueled at Boston's Logan International Airport, and as he approached Mount Desert Island he was met by bad weather.

The plane he was flying was a single-engine Piper PA-24 Comanche, and nearly all of the plane remains in the woods near the summit…

Mary A (Fickett) Campbell

I am looking for information on a Mary Fickett born roughly 1815 (died after 1870) who married a Levi Campbell in Calais Maine.  I found their intent to marry which said her family was from Perry Maine but nothing more than that.  Does anyone have information on a Mary Fickett?  Some family members that I have spoken to have suggested that she could possibly be an Indian.

Edward Stephen Harris

I'm searching for Edward Harris, born 1802 in Portland, Maine, died 1883 in Dixmont, my GGGrandfather. I have direct descendants in Dixmont - various Stephen Edwards (my namesake). i can't seem to get any further back. I'm interested to know where he came from. I've found some hints that he came through Newfoundland, but I don't know when that would have been. Any hints, etc., greatly appreciated.
