If your research is in York Maine or you have history from York Maine check out this news story.
Just found out last week my 7x great uncle Thomas Curtis was in the Candelmas Massacre.
Oh ya, please tell me more?
Barbara, I Googled his name and found the story. I think his sister Elizabeth found the same fate.
Wow I just looked at some of this on the web. I will be trying to find out more about this story. I had no Idea, can you imagine a forced march to Canada of 300 people, with some dying along the way. People being killed in there homes and their homes distroyed. Oh my, it was a very wild place, not all what we learned about history books in school and what a nice meal our ancesters had with the friendly Natives. That is not to say at all that the Natives of this land were treated well by either.
