Civil War Cousin

I am writing to report on some success with guesswork and flexibility...

Leslie Griffin & JB Morse Farm on Butter Hill in Livermore

I am seeking photos of my family and "the farm" in Maine.  My ggrandfather, Leslie Griffin b. 1878 in Livermore, inherited the property from his mother Clara Morse.  My grandfather, Richard Griffin b. 1900 in Somerville, MA, summered there, and I did too.  There he met and married his wife, my grandmother, Hazel Norton b. 1901 in Livermore, in 1920.     

I would also welcome any stories that you can offer of the Griffin, Norton and related families.
