Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have had an interest in local history for over 40years, mostly in Readfield, Maine. In addition to the genalogical research I have done, for my and several other Readfield families, I have self-published two books of Readfield VR's 1768-1976, and several monographs; I have taped several oral histories and "tromped" a good many cemeteries over the years! Am currently researching old houses in Readfield (book pending) and also delving into the history of resorts and kids camps Readfield and the immediate area (book pending). I am happy to help find and take pictures of gravestones, in Readfield and Vassalboro, when able. I also have a complete listing of all burials in Readfield up to about 1975, so can do look ups from home upon request. If your roots lead to Readfield I am a good resource and enjoy helping when able. Also be sure to see my web site Happy Hunting!!

Captain Matthias Smith
Your F-a-G entry and bio for Dorcas Smith Baker helped me find Matthias Smith, a brother to my 5th great grandfather, Benjamin Smith. After contacting the Smith descendants it appears that Matthias and wife Comfort Carpenter Smith are buried in Readfield Corner Cemetery. However, the only Matthias Smith that appears in F-a-G is their son Matthias who is also buried there (d.1812). Would you be able to go to the cemetery, find Matthias and his wife Comfort, take pictures of their graves and put them onto Find-a-Grave? His dates are: b. 1728 in MA and d. 1806 in ME. Wife is b. 1739 d. 1814. Thank you so much because I know this is a lot to ask!

Alice Eaton in Middleboro
I have rec'd your request for edits for Alice Eaton someone I've only known as "Miss Eaton". Did you know her or her immediate family? Curious. My family has taken care of her plot for what seems forever. She was a friend of my great-aunt and so we've always put flowers on the plot. As I say never met her but we honor our aunt by taking care of her friend.

RE: Need directions to Pike's Corner Cemetery, Industry, ME
Take a right onto route 43 in the center of Farmington, heading to Industry. The cemetery is about 10 miles out of Farmington in Industry. There is a 90 degree corner that bears to the right. At the apex of that corner, on the left side of the road is a house. If you face the house, there is a dirt road to the left of the house. That dirt road where Pike's corner cemetery is. You can drive right in, the cemetery is on the left and there's a turnaround just past the cemetery. You can almost see the cemetery from route 43.
If you look at a map, the 90 degree corner is pretty obvious. If you get to the town line of Starks (Somerset County line, too), you've gone too far.
Good luck and if I can be of further help, just ask. If all else fails, I can lead you there next spring!

RE: Need directions to Pike's Corner Cemetery, Industry, ME
Sorry to take so long. Intended to reply Oct 20th but had a life threatening emergency, emergency surgery, the whole works. just got out of the hospital today. So much for always bragging about being as healthy as a horse! Will try to get the directions to you this week. Want to double check the accuracy before you go on another wild goose chase! My directions will bring you to the cemetery from Farmington. Is this okay? I think it's the easiest way to get there!

RE: Samuel Brown #101434325
Thanks so much Dale. I thought that I had read all of your stuff, but the 1791 blog eluded me. I appreciate your efforts at preserving history. It has been a great aid to me in confirming my Brown family connections.

I suspect Samuel's wife was a "Gilman." If not, then son Abraham's wife must have been.

Samuel Brown #101434325
Hi Dale,

I left a message a few days ago regarding this Samuel Brown from Readfield. You wrote about his house and family in your rootsweb "History of Readfield." On that website you mentioned he was from Gilmanton, NH. I was curious about where that info came from. Any other info about him, wife, parents, etc.? Any chance the gravestone says "Aged 73" not 78?

I apologize if I'm being a pest. Thankful for any help and info you might have.

Hi Dale, I'm hoping you can help me with this since I'm in Delaware and your live a little closer to this area then I do.

Everett V. Scott was a soldier that was KIA in WW II and he was from Aroostook County ... Now, my problem is that his burial card info says he is interred in the "Wypotiplock" cemetery which I can't find in Find A Grave or even looking on the map. Do you have any idea? Are they talking about Drew Cemetery? Here is his record:

( He is also noted on the below webpage with a link to his grave )

Thanks My Friend for any help you can give,
