I started researching the Blanche side of the family last year. Somehow I found my way here and now I'm hooked.It has become a great pastime hobby.I work as an analyist and this is right up my alley. And my wife approves of my new hobby.
I was born in Maine, and have lived in Maine all of my life. I'm married to a wonderful wife and partner who loves to fish as much as I do.We have 3 grown children who are all doing well. I have 2 others with my first wife,both doing well and giving us grandchildren.Not much else to ask for.
I am not certain I ever answered your message. She was my Great-Grandmother. If you check wikitree ( http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Drew-304) I posted some pictures of her that I found in my grandmothers belongings. She did have a fascinating but confusing story. I wasn't sure if I should trace Blanche or Drew! :)
Edwin F. Small Hi, I posted a photo and some Bio info on Edwin I found. The photo was in my collection of photography collected over the last 45 years. Seems only fitting that his site has a photo of him now. There is "some" material on him on Ancestry, but I have yet to find any photos of him. Possibly you might want to use this to add to his memorial page? Bob Gantz
Ebenezer Cousens grave Hello Jim: We had some email contact a few months ago when you posted pictures of the grave of my husband's great-great-grandfather, Capt. Joseph P. Pratt, on the find-a-grave website. My husband, Arthur Pratt, and I visited Saccarappa Cemetery over Thanksgiving weekend to view the restoration of the gravestones for Joseph and his daughter, Little Katie Pratt. I had paid a local contractor in Westbrook, ME, to restore them earlier in the year, and he did a great job. When you and I first communicated, you very kindly transferred ownership of those sites to my husband's Pratt family tree. On a whim today, I went looking for another of Art's ancestors, Ebenezer Cousens. I was excited to see that you had posted a picture of his gravestone, too. Eben was the father of Art's great-great-grandmother, Elizabeth Cousens Pratt, and was in fact the father-in-law of Joseph P. Pratt. We knew Eben was buried in Saccarappa Cemetery, but we didn't know there was an existing gravestone. I was thrilled to see there was. By any chance, could you describe its location in the cemetery to me? Is it anywhere near Joseph Pratt's grave? Elizabeth Pratt is supposedly buried in Saccarappa, too, but we found no tombstone for her. Do you know of one? Meanwhile, I hope you have had a satisfying Christmas holiday and are looking forward to a good New Year. Thanks for your help, Ilana Pratt
steve boisvert Thanks for the photo of Sadie and Henry Wilcox stone in steep falls. It was so heartwarming to see the stone again. Since I live in Florida now,I don't know what I would do without sincere people like you to help keep me connected. I did not receive the photo of my mom and dads stone Florence and Raymond boisvert just behind my grandmothers Sadie Wilcox.I was wondering if you sent it and it did not go through. Thank you,
