I am looking for anyone who can help me or is related to Stillman Watson & Susan Hinkley they were in Milbridge and the Cherryfield area between 1850-1870's . Stillman was born in Robinston, Maine Susan unknown. Their children were:

Julia born abt 1854 she married George Kelliher and lived  in Cherryfield

Warren born abt 1856 -1858 is found in Cherryfield Town records being married to Effie Leighton in 1876

and in census for 1880 with Laura ( not sure which one is the son of Stillman)

Mary A born in 1859 or Annie marries John E Young of Gouldsboro ( they are my great grandparents)

Freddie born abt 1864 , Charles born abt 1867 , George abt 1870. My father told me a story he got from his grandmother Annie about how 2 of her brothers meet each other in a saloon or such and began talking and in furthering the conversation realized they were brothers but had not recognized each other initially. One of the brothers is Charles he settled in Dakota Territory which turned out to be Towner, North Dakota I can only trace him until 1900 and into 1904 thru BLM records. I do not know the identity of the other brother the family lost contact with him and thought maybe he went to California. Their story is supposed to be mentioned in a story called "Last Of The Chisholm Trail" published in the Boston Globe. I have spent many hours looking for the story but have not yet found it.  If anyone is related to this family or has heard the story please let me know. I would love to hear from you.
