Hi Mertie

I enjoyed our phone conversation very much.  My ancester is Suan Sawyer Cole wife of Peter Haskell III  b. 1863-1944.  I don't as of yet now why her middle is Sawyer and am assuming that its because of a connection to the Sawyer Family,  Both this side of the family and the family that adopted me have Stinson family relationships.  We have connections on the adopted side way up to the St John NB

Hi Mertie
Did u find the info u were looking for? Do u need.more help?

That's ok You didn't need too.  You see my whole family was born and died there too.  You will find your family very well maped out and I you have any question about them just e-mail the Deer Isle Stonington Historical Society and they will tell you everything you would ever need to know I bet.  They most likely have a file and whole box of informatin about your family there.  kk  If I can help you any more just drop me a note.  Some of the Stinsons also can be found in Bath, With is alos Woolwich / Linclon, maine.  In other words Woolwich = Linclon=Arrowsic=  these are all Bath Maine. KK

Well their were Stinsons and Sawyers both on Deer Isle.  Here is a link to the Cementery's where you most likely will find most of you clan..

Some of the Stinsons also came from over in Bath they are part of the same family. 

I also most likely have other infor for you will try to look it up and find it for you tomorrow.  The Deer Isle Stonington historical society also have extensive records on the early history of the people there.  And by the was I guess we are cousins of some sort LOL

Hi Mertie I am also researching the Stinson Family,   My family mostly come from Deer Isle.  In Deer Isle they have kept trake of there families so here is a link to the cementery's there,  The stinsons lived on Stinsons Neck but they also have family members in Arrowsic, Linclon, Maine.  Here the linclon is the country not the city and is no where neer linclon maine.  Ok.  Arrowsic is now called Bath, Maine.

here is the cemetery link.  You can also check Dr. Bemjamin Lame Noyes geneaology book,  He listed all thehabitents from the mid 1800's to the mid 1900's,
