I will add a note about the Niskanens. I saw this online, but no one has added since 2013, so I am not sure this will be seen.
I am related to quite a few Niskanens through Julia Kuula Stein, who came to Maine in the early 1900's. Julia moved to New Hampshire after marrying my grandfather, John Elmer Stein. Her mother was Gustava Niskanen Kuula, who moved to Fithcburg, Mass around that time.
Brother of Gustava Niskanen is Johan Niskanen. Distant couisns are Matts Niskanen ,…Continue

I am looking into my grandmother's family; Irene M. Potter Brown. She married my grandfather Hector MacNeil Brown. I believe her father's name was George B. Potter and mother was Blanch S. Kilgore. I believe her brothers were Rufus L. Potter (1902-1937) and Lawrence Potter. I am wondering if Robert Leon "Bob" Potter is related. Rufus Potter married Margaret F. Gillman. Irene M. Potter Brown lived in Gray, Cumberland, Maine.

I am transcribing the VRs of Mount Vernon, Maine, and have recently discovered many pauper records from the 1840-1870 era. This has led to much curiosity about how paupers were treated during this period. It looks like people bid at the town meeting to keep paupers in their homes. However, the curious part is that it looks like they were bidding to take care of their own parents or other relatives. Another curious aspect is that sometimes they were paid in shillings - why would this happen…Continue

I still have work to do but I am at a point I never thought I would be as someone that was adopted.

The Mayo family has a problem that has not been resolved in over 119 years. Actually, it may have been understood years ago but the knowledge did not filter down to their descendants.
John Mayo came to Maine before the detailed records of border crossings came into being about 1895. George Lessor came here before that date, too.
I can easily track John Mayo's family through the census. George Lessor is not so easily tracked. but there are records of him living in Dover, ME.…Continue
