The Tragedy Of Newport Mountain
To the Editor of the Bar Harbor Times;
I was very much interested in the article and the poem in a recent issue of the Times from Mrs. Smith nee, Miss Jennie Lynam, and it brought to my mind the tragedy of Newport Mountain of long ago, almost forgotten now but which at that time was an awful thing to happen in that quiet little fishing village. For…

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.

A recent contact indicated that it was thought that she may have been born in Rockland, Maine in July of 1863 and perhaps…Continue

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…Continue

Hidden in the woods not far from the summit of Cedar Swamp Mountain in beautiful Acadia National Park are the remains of a plane that crashed into the side of the mountain during bad weather. It was in June 30, 1970 that pilot Robert McGaunn refueled at Boston's Logan International Airport, and as he approached Mount Desert Island he was met by bad weather.
The plane he was flying was a single-engine Piper PA-24 Comanche, and nearly all of the plane remains in the woods near the summit…

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.
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.
