Hello again Kathleen. This part of the country can be as beautiful as it is harsh. I don't think farming was an easy task at all for the early settlers. I know I can't even plant a tulip bulb without hitting a rock where I live!
I often wonder during some of these bitterly cold winter nights how our ancestors survived at all without our current luxuries of insulation, central heating and corner markets.
Yes, I'm a deep rooted Mainer, born and raised in Greenwood myself, and now living in the neighboring town of Woodstock. It makes tracing the tree a little easier when 75% of your ancestors never left New England. :)
What part of the Paddock family were you looking at? There are several groups, and make sure to watch for the spelling change. My family background has many people as Paddock, and the same people are Paddack. Just a heads up. I am searching into them as well.
