Hi! I'm new to this site. I'm trying to do my Dalrymple line. I was wondering if you could help me? Jacob Dalrymple is my 5th great grandfather. My mother and I do have some information that we have found at public libraries. My father remembers a story of 4 brothers coming over from Scotland into Canada. He wants me to find out if its true orjust a story. Can you please help me?

Hi Ben, Ken Dicken- Clem A Hart's parents were both born in Maine.  Clem was married to Margaret C Hart (Jonas) around 1907.  I don't know his date of death but he was living in Washington Sate in the 1920 census.  Thank you Ben, Ken

Thank you, Ben, so vey much. He was actually born in 1762, in Prussia.  He came over with the British. He had a son born about 1790, Lewis II and he had a son, Lewis III, so maybe the grandson was born about 1852.  Thanks again for looking. Maybe it was such a quiet, out of the way town of Starks and when someone died no obit was written. Oh well. Thought I"d try to find something on him.

Sometimes, as in a census, his name was referred to as Lewis Skillin without the 'g'.

Sorry I didn't add that!  He died in 1802 and is buried in the Oxbow Cemetery in Norridgewock (used to be in Starks before the land on that side of the Sandy River was ceded over to Norridgewock).  Thank you.

Hello Ben,   I've seen your name on findagrave.com!  I am looking for a newspaper article (if one exists) describing the death of my 5th great grandfather, Lewis Skillings of Starks, ME  He was killed by a falling limb or a falling tree in his 40th year of life.  A young death, leaving several children behind for his widow, Hannah, to care for.  I've tried searching in a few places but have not had any luck. You seem to be a wealth of knowledge so thought I'd see if you could find it. Thanks.

Yes Ben I have the death certificate. She died in Moro plantation on the Town Line Road and I have made three trips up to Aroostock County looking for the grave without any luck.

Thanks for looking
