Hello all, I am a new member and looking for contacts who share my Adams, Smith, Fish, and Lamb Maine relatives. I am also looking for information about the Bartletts and Ulmers in Rockland Maine.

The Whiting Women Introduction

The Whiting Women Introduction

 

          What if almost everything your parents told you about their families wasn't true?  The stories they told you were just that, pieces of fiction woven together to create a better past than what really existed.  You might think that everyone's family closet has a skeleton or two.  Well, how about fifteen skeletons in the span of slightly more than 100 years?  I would say that you will probably…

Mary A (Fickett) Campbell

I am looking for information on a Mary Fickett born roughly 1815 (died after 1870) who married a Levi Campbell in Calais Maine.  I found their intent to marry which said her family was from Perry Maine but nothing more than that.  Does anyone have information on a Mary Fickett?  Some family members that I have spoken to have suggested that she could possibly be an Indian.

Edward Stephen Harris

I'm searching for Edward Harris, born 1802 in Portland, Maine, died 1883 in Dixmont, my GGGrandfather. I have direct descendants in Dixmont - various Stephen Edwards (my namesake). i can't seem to get any further back. I'm interested to know where he came from. I've found some hints that he came through Newfoundland, but I don't know when that would have been. Any hints, etc., greatly appreciated.
