We are looking forward to a visit to Moosehead Lake in a couple of weeks, bringing my mother-in-law, Ruth Templeton Rollason back to Greenville where she grew up. While we are there I plan to make a trip to Augusta to visit the Maine State Library and State Archives. I have received my “official” researcher’s card from the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention (isn’t that interesting?).
I’ll be looking for the story of Ruth’s grandmother, Emily Sears Templeton Jenkins, b 1856 and d. 1932. Other Surnames in Piscataquis and Penobscot counties are Sears, Kirk, Robbins and Ridley. The Templeton family comes from Adam Templeton who lived in Swanville around 1800.
