Thank you so much you have been a big help to me on this journey. I appreciate this and now looks like its going in an entirely different direction. I can not wait to see where this takes me. That just goes to prove that some things are not what they appear to be. I will post my findings thanks again

Wow that is very interesting. I was not sure if that was the same thomas. That would put his parents born in canada. And take this a whole new way from what I am seeing. How do you trace canadian roots and is there a way to chase them back to mass or new hampshire or even Maine for that matter. I am totally confused. I saw that one for thomas being born in 1899 but was not sure if it was him considering both his parents were born in canada. But I will go from there. thank you this helps a great deal.

Exactly! Thought I'd found the only one but a trip around the cemetery revealed one more. There are no traditional GAR markers (star-shaped) in the cemetery. Checked for possible link with GAR Ladies Auxiliary but nothing. Thinking that this may be a local chapter medallion. Am half tempted to catalog location and take to the state archives. The one shown here was sticking in a hole in the base of a tipped over stone but the woman buried there was not the wife of a soldier. May have been placed there by mowing crew.

Recently came across this GAR grave marker, one of only two in a very large cemetery. Can't seem to find anything similar to it online in an image search. The two cast iron markers are in front of the wive's gravestones of their Civil War Soldier husbands. Is this marker unique to Maine?

Greetings Chris!

My name is Renee Groleau, I live in MA, and I’m researching my family tree, along with my brother, and in doing so, a couple of branches have led me up to Maine – one being predominately, the Brickett family.

When Googling the name Alonzo B. Brickett, I came upon two pictures of gravestones that you took. That of Alonzo B. Brickett and Hannah B. Brickett and her husband Jonathan Herrick, in Chapel Cemetery, Norway, Oxford, County ME. Alonzo, I've discovered, is my 3rd great-uncle, and Hannah, my 3rd great-aunt. They were brother and sister. Their father was also named Alonzo B. Brickett. However, he's buried in Evergreen Cemetery in Portland, along with his wife and other children.


Along with seeing your pictures, we've come upon their death records, censuses and that of their brothers, sisters and parents and we’ve created memorial pages for the Brickett family on findagrave.com and obtained transfers from a couple people who already created pages before us.

The reason why I write to you today, is to ask if we could use the two pictures that you took, of Alonzo Jr.'s and Hannah's graves, on findagrave.com, on the pages we have for them? We would give you credit on each of their page and we'd be most appreciative if you grant this to us! If you wish not to share, we completely understand!

As they say, it doesn’t hurt to ask, and nothing ventured, is nothing gained...

Sincerely, & with kind regards,

Renee G.

I had trouble opening several Universalist and one Methodist church article.  As near as I can tell the problem obtains for all on the list.

In your column for Aug. 4, 2010 you list various churches for which there are articles in the Lewiston Eve. Journal.  I have looked at several and find them unreadable and unprintable.  Do you know what procedure may open them up?

Thank you so much.  I never would have found this in a zillion years.  You are so good at this.  I so appricate your taking the time to find this for me...

At 1:13am on February 10, 2013, Barbara Foster said…

Oh thank you very much....I was haveing a problem their with that, but I thought I saw that you had a link or connection to the Fox Family up in Fortfair Field, Eaton area.

Chris are u connected to the Luney Family from Westfield, Maine and If so do you have any information on Lizzy Fox and her husband Frank Shorey married around 8 Nov 1919.  Frank was born sometime in 1853 and came down from Canada.  Lizzy is from canada to.  They had sons Melvin and Erman and may have had other children.  Any information you could give would be greatly appriciated.

Dear Chris, how did you find out this information so quickly?  Do you have any more information about William Wood, where he was from etc., also if you knew, Lucius Henry Woods.  On Lucius' death certificate he names Lemuel as his father.  According to vital records, Lemuel had three sons and one daughter who died.  I can not find the connection between Lemuel and Lucius.  I did read that there was a Lucius Brainard where Lemuel was living but the dates of birth do not line us with Lucius' birth.  I can't find a birth certificate for Lucius.  Death cert. says he was born in Charlestown with Lemuel's other sons but Boston does not have anyone with that name and date of birth. 1869 January.  He would be the same age as Percival Lemuel's son.  I would love to think he adopted his young cousin but the DOB does not line up.  thanks again for filling in some blanks, I was stuck!

Thanks so much for the newspaper article you posted for me. I am definitely interested! You've been a great help to me and I've been promoting this site on my blog (I just started in late February) and by word of mouth.

Hi Chris,

I am curious how you are related to the Coolidge line. The newest addition to the Coolidge Clan from Bethel is my grandson. I will try to go to your website and see if anything rings a bell.
