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.

Bailey/Cochran families
I am connected thru Bailey family to Cochran. Your great uncle Andrew Cochran married my grandmother Cora Scribner Hunnewell. Your cousin Irene married my uncle Howard. I don't have a question at the moment, but just checking in.

Bailey Family from Newbury MA
Part of the Bailey family from MA and Plantation 7 Baileyville, Washington, Maine has settled in Michigan, which I am descended from. Nathaniel Bailey I was following up on, married Martha Emery in Newbury and then settled in Poland, Androscoggin Maine. It might be another person. Thank you.

RE: regarding Edmund Bailey
Thank you for confirming his middle name. I was at first confused when I read it. I was trying to find the father of Nathaniel Bailey who was born in Newbury Essex Ma in 1739/1740. His father was Edmund, and Edmund's father was Isaac. Thank you for clearing this up for me.

RE: Josiah Bailey
Hi... Glad to help and thankful that the snow finally melted away to get access to the cemetery. I looked all over for Minnie but was not successful. Please feel very free to use the photo, that's what this is all about. Best of luck in your research.

Hi. I'd love to connect as we trace from the same Martin line in Bangor. My parents knew Arthur and Gladys Wilson very well.
