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!!

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.

Thanks,
David H.

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.

Thanks,
David H.

HELP !!!! LOL
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,

Samuel Brown #101434325
Hi Dale,

Just wondering if you have any additional info on this Samuel Brown? Name of wife, or parents? I saw that you talked about his home and family on your "History of Readfield" website.

The "Samuel" in my tree is the son of Abraham and Hannah (Osgood) Brown, b. 6/10/1749 Epping, NH. The gravestone birth calculates to 1744. Not sure my info is correct.

I have a list of Samuel's children including Abraham b. 4/19/1770. I'm trying to confirm the correctness of my Brown family connections.

Thanks for you help.
