|Bio and Links|
Originally a Downeaster from Maine, I married a Montanan and transplanted my roots to Washington State. (How does a girl from Maine meet a guy from Montana? --in the British West Indies, of course. We were both Peace Corps Volunteers.) |
As a "Maineac" I claim Acadian heritage from the Landry branch of my tree but am also interested in the following families of Washington and Hancock Counties, Maine: Huntley, McDevitt, Hodgkins, Wakefield, Sinclair, Cochran, Bailey, Higgins, Messer, Drew, Smith, Shaw, Young, Booth, Cook and Carnon/Carmon/Carman (to name just a few families of my bloodline.)
My husband is directly related to West Virginian Carters and Ashleys, Swedish Petersons who homesteaded in Ontario and Norwegian Paulsons from Minnesota.
My maternal grandparents settled in Woodland (Baileyville) in 1912, my mother and uncles were born there, and I was raised less than a mile from my grandmother's home. Most of my research has centered on cemeteries in Codyville, Topsfield, Princeton, Woodland, Alexander, Crawford and Wesley. Although my research began with family, I have created many memorials to honor classmates and friends, including people who worked with my father in the mill, people my mother cared for as a nurse, my parents' extensive Grange connections, and, occasionally, someone who was once simply nice to me. It's been a sentimental journey, sometimes bittersweet.
Whenever possible, I add family links, genealogy, and photos to the memorials I have created. My mother saved her mother's photo albums and I have saved Mom's. I also have Mom's collection of obituaries. You may copy any photos I have posted but please give me the courtesy of crediting them to me. Credit rewards my efforts and also allows people who view your work to track back to me and perhaps share corrections or updates, which I welcome.
Please remember that people who create memorials for Find A Grave are volunteers. Our efforts cost time and money. I have spent hundreds of hours researching genealogy and hours of vacation time photographing headstones. Gas costs as does the subscription to an ancestry site. Find A Grave is a free resource and that fact was very important in my decision to become involved. It pleases me to think that my efforts are viewable by anyone with Internet access and from any part of the world. If Find A Grave has been helpful to you, I encourage you to reciprocate the favor by committing to create memorials or photograph headstones in your own community.

Hi, Huntley was buried in Bucks Harbor 120790416 The Buck Cemetery hasn't had a burial in over a hundred years.
|TheGhost||RE: Huntley family|
It was Golden Ridge Cemetery #3 that I cataloged. That does't mean that others are not interned there. They could be there without marker stones. Sherman Cemetery #2 is far from complete. Ray

|Chris Gilbert||RE: Not Eva Huntley|
As to why Victoria Wilcox Huntley did not show on census in 1930---I found a record on ancestry.com that showed her dod to be 1928 and that she died in Jonesport.
Remember 1928 was right on the edge of the Depression, so it's possible her grave wasn't marked.
The record was created by a person that I know personally and has always provided info as accurately as possible. So that should at least be a decent hint and not just made up info.
|Chris Gilbert||Eva Huntley|
Eva is buried in Greenwood Cemetery, Jonesport, Maine.
Her memorial is: Find A Grave Memorial# 107998554
|Chris Gilbert||Eva Wilcox|
Eva's death record shows she died of TB at "C.M. Sanatarium" in Fairfield, Maine and was buried at Jonesport, Maine on April 7, 1920.
I found the record on ancestry.com -- and even though a 2nd page for the record wasn't indicated, I clicked to it anyway and located the above info.
I'll keep looking to see if I can find her gravesite.
|Chris Gilbert||Phyllis Huntley Chandler|
She is now linked with her parents. I knew that but just overlooked it. She married my dad's brother, William so she's my aunt.
Aww, I think I remember that. Didn't I send you some info from a record I was typing in for Family search? Im happy that helped, none of that info I sent was to be added in the record so unless they show the document when they make the info available you may have not known that.
|KAREN LOVY||RE: Thank you for the transfer|
I have taken the photos and am waiting for requests to post them.
