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 www.readfield1791.blogspot.com Happy Hunting!!

Smith Grave in Readfield Corner Cem
Hello Dale,
I am wondering if you can help me find the grave of Matthias Smith (1728-1806) who is buried in this cemetery, according to his descendants. Although your Ancestry page for him states that his place of burial is unknown. His wife was Comfort Carpenter.
His son, also named Matthias, is also buried here and his grave states his name as Capt Matthias Smith Died June 20, 1812: aged 53 years.

Thanks for any help.

Abigail Hunt 111114720
Hi,
Just wanted to let you know that your memorial for Abigail Hunt 111114720 is a duplicate of an earlier memorial for her 71339137. Yours has a photo of the stone and the other does not. Maybe moving your photo to the earlier memorial would work? Neither are mine; I am just adding names to this cemetery from photos I took.

Photos of Harris Family
Hi Dale,
I see that you've included some photos for the Harris family. I think that the book they came from might also have photos of two people of interest for me. I wonder if you have access to that book and/or photos of Mary Frances (Harris) Shaw Attwood and her daughter, Alta May (Shaw) Hill? Thanks.

Captain Matthias Smith
Dale,
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
Hello,
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.
Regards,
Sarah

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!

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!
