Philena was my great grandmother.

From the Portland Express, August 5, 1964:


Mrs. Philena A. Martin, 85, widow of Almond Martin, formerly of Bangor, died at her residence, 39 Neal St., today following a long illness.

She was born on Jan. 19, 1879, in Cutler, daughter of the late Heman and Deborah Cates Seavey. She attended Cutler schools and lived in Bangor most of her life. She came to Portland 12 years ago. She was a member of the old Pine Street Methodist Church and Tuscan Chapter, OES, Bangor. Her husband died in 1954.

Mrs. Martin is survived by a daughter, Mrs. Thelma A. Clark of Portland with whom she resided; a granddaughter, Mrs. Harold H. Soule of Falmouth; a grandson, Alton H. Clark of Ithaca, N.Y.; one sister, Miss Mabel M. Seavey of Rockland, and several nieces and nephews.

Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday at 749 Congress St. with the Rev. Louis H. Staples, officiating. Interment will be in Brooklawn Memorial Park.

Philena has Mayflower lines from both Richard Warren and William Brewster.
