Any assistance in locating birth date, parents names, cemetery would be wonderful.  Taylor Fritz Worthington-Gilchrist

The Tragic Death Of Lucreatia K. Douglass

Back in 1853 there was no Acadia National Park here, and the town of Bar Harbor back than was called Eden.  But even back than locals made their way to the precipice on the side of Champlain Mountain, and made their way up to a popular spot on the side of the Precipice known as The Great Cave.  The cave was a popular picnic site.  In those days Champlain Mountain was named Newport Mountain.

Now if you have read about this tragic accident on here in the past, you will now find new…

MY NEWSPAPER ARCHIVE REVIEW

NEWSPAPER ARCHIVE



This my my review of this product or tool often touted as a great tool for genealogy.  I had very high hopes for this site, since i not only do a lot of family genealogy but I also do a lot of research on Acadia National Park and its past history.  As it turned out this was one of the worst genealogy tools I have ever used which is riddled with problems from the get go.

The main problem, and there are several, is that now matter how well you craft your…

New member introduction

Hello all, I am a new member and looking for contacts who share my Adams, Smith, Fish, and Lamb Maine relatives. I am also looking for information about the Bartletts and Ulmers in Rockland Maine. My great grandmother was adopted by the Walleys of Middleboro, Massachussetts between 1865 and 1870. She is not on the MA 1865 MA census but is on the 1870 as a 6 year old. A recent contact indicated that it was thought that she may have been born in Rockland, Maine in July of 1863 and perhaps…

The Whiting Women Introduction

The Whiting Women Introduction

 

          What if almost everything your parents told you about their families wasn't true?  The stories they told you were just that, pieces of fiction woven together to create a better past than what really existed.  You might think that everyone's family closet has a skeleton or two.  Well, how about fifteen skeletons in the span of slightly more than 100 years?  I would say that you will probably…

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.
