Apr 1881 divorce, Cumberland County

I was able to download a zip file to my desktop but cannot open it. Do I have to order a hard copy from the Maine State Archives or is there a simple (free) way to access the information? William F. Irwin v. Catherine McKennon Irwin.

Are these places the same place?

Penobscot Expedition

Can anyone recommend a good book on this. I'd like one that also covers the rescue of the settlers.

Family Search Records

The batch film source numbers are the same for each of Abraham Winslow's eight children, but the batch and source numbers for his marriage to Betsey Welch 12 Feb 1789 differ from those of the children. Can these numbers be used to find information online or by writing to the state? I was wondering if the marriage numbers might reveal the names of parents of the bride and groom?

Hello cousin Elizabeth! It's so great to hear from you. Well, I'm still stuck on Abraham's parents, but I have a couple things left to search out before I give up. It's true that most of the Winslow's that settled there were decedents of Kenelm Winslow of Marshfield. His house still stands and is privately owned. Your posts were very helpful to me on this site and Ancestry. It would be so great to solve this mystery. Let's keep in touch, and share what we find. It will be a good winter project.

Thank you for your kind message.  We have a lot of folks who come here for genealogy and recently found this forum and thought it would be a good way to let people know about what is happening.  This is a great resource in itself.

The vital records of the town give your grandmothers name as Emma L. Coffin (birth) and some other records refer to her as "Lizzie". Emma married Charles R Woodman in 1891 (intentions 7 Nov 1891 in Freeport). In general, the work tracks people named Coffin and their spouses (Some exceptions like name changes,etc.). The 2006 work is obsolete, but would give one a feeling of where in the grand scheme of things one fits. I would be glad to send you a copy in return for Emma's death date and Charle's birth and death dates and say $5 for handling, postage, etc. Book is paperbound, over 80 pages, 8.5 x 11. Send surface address to eleven11@roadrunner.com for privacy concerns.

The Coffin's in Freeport, Brunswick, Phiipsbug, etc. area are 99% descended from Abner who came to Freeport c. 1760. The Coffin's in Wiscasset are a different branch (Alna--sometimes called Head Tide is on the Sheepscot adjacent and above Wiscasset).
I have tracked Abner's descendants for 30 years--I think the library has a copy of my 2006 release. Since 2006 I have added another 50% of pages, sources, checking, etc.

Samuel K (Eliz Winslow), Stephen (Mary Ann Gross), Stephen (Rhoda Welch), Stephen (Martha Chapman), Abner ((Mary Rawlins).
Will get back later. Ed Coffin
