Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

Josiah Bailey 1778-1867
I am trying to link Josiah Bailey to his son, Silas Bailey and am having trouble find a document that will prove this connection. In your notes for Josiah Bailey you mention a sale of land with a list of signers including Silas Bailey and his wife, Lydia. Could you please tell me where I could find this land sale document or if I might get a copy of this from you. I am happy to pay for this and would appreciate any help you can give me. Thank you so much! Lanita

RE: Ross Aubrey Merrill
I have already deleted my memorial. I only made mine as a place holder until yours was moved over. You've done so much of the research on your memorial that it would be a shame for me to take any credit.

I have been trying to link up the maine/mass thurstons in our family, and just was told by a member of my family (Bailey) that Cleveland was a cousin of my grandfather Hammond. I would like to add a bunch of info to that family and wonder if you would transfer them to me, you have 119806900, George...who is named after his uncle. Thanks so much for all the work you have done. BTW my GGF married a Bailey out of rockport mass. Dick Hammond

Great job on your memorials. Your investment of yourself in the memorials you create will always be a great asset to others.

Thanks for the dedication!

RE: Vernal Steen
I would love one! Thank you! I cannot find a burial record for Vernal on Find A Grave. I believe he is buried in the same cemetary. Any idea on how I can find out and get a record added? He passed in 1959 and I was never able to meet him since I wasn't born until 1962.

Thank you so much for your help!
