Mammoth Mart

The Geneabloggers daily prompt of Shopping Saturday got me thinking about my earliest shopping experiences. When I was born, we lived on the same farm as my dad's parents. There were two houses with the barn dooryard between the two. I was the first grandchild and my grandmother spoiled me rotten. She took me everywhere with her. One of her favorite places to shop was the Mammoth Mart in Rumford (Maine). We would go in her VW bug and my favorite place to ride was in the well above the motor…

A Wall of Fire

I'm sure you've heard the term "brick wall" in genealogy. Well, I have a  "fire wall." I am trying to find the parents of Elizabeth "Betsy" Clark born 9 Oct 1758 in Falmouth (Portland) and died 23 Feb 1839 in Minot (Auburn), according to records in Woodstock, Maine. Betsy married Lazarus Rand just about time that the Revolutionary War broke out. She was recovering from the very difficult birth of their first child, James, when Lazarus sailed on the Bagaduce Expedition (more on that in…

Thought this might interest you. It's from the Lewiston Evening Journal of Tuesday, 5 Nov. 1878:

Sorry, no luck tracking down "Grammy Philbrick."


Since you mentioned the possible name "Lizzie," I did wonder about the aunt Lizzie Merrill who was living with the Cottons in 1900. She was Elizabeth (Cox) Merrill, a sister of Christiana (Cox) Cotton, born March 1822 in Auburn, died 5 Apr. 1906 in South Paris. But I couldn't find any record of her having married a Philbrick, and she died before Ray and Annie Cotton's children were born.

Hi Cousin!

I have some files and images I can send you if you don't have them. Do you have Asa's Civil War Pension File? I've been posting the transcriptions to my blog West in New England. I can send you that if you want.  Do you attend the Ellingwood Family Reunion? I'll be there this year,

Hello Pam! Welcome to this site. I recognized your grandparents in these photos, I remember them to be some of the nicest people I have ever met. I am Yvonne Micklon's daughter, our parents dated awhile back and are still good friends. I think that I am Lorna's age, if I remember correctly, anyway, good luck with your searches. The people on this site are very helpful and will do what they can, for you. I don't think that we're in the same groups but I'll still keep my eyes and ears open to your queries. I would love to see some more of your family photos... Good luck to you and your searches!!
