Hello Debbi,
Thanks for the birth information and the sources you cited. I also want to say I must have had a bad day when I took the photos because I had the gravestones right before my eyes and my fingers still entered the wrong dates.
Thanks again,

Hi Debra,
Thank you so very much for the information on my 4th great-grandmother. I have posted it on her memorial and gave you credit for furnishing the information.
I am related through Daniel and Susannah son Daniel Brown, Jr.
Thank you again for the wonderful information.
Have a nice evening,

Durgin Cemetery, Hiram, Maine
Hi Debbie,

I have been doing Durgin Genealogy since 1989. I have a discrepancy with "The Durgin Cemetery" info that you have listed.
First: Clara's bio mother was Margarette L Kearney.
Second: There must be several little small cemeteries in Hiram with Durgin's. Since they are my mother's immediate family I can tell you that there are 11 graves in the Durgin cemetery on Durgintown Rd, behind the former Durgin Homesteadd and School.
They are: John H and Clara M Durgin, 4 sons who died as babies, Harry Leo, Gardiner, Ralph Evert and Kenneth. Joseph and Priscilla Littlefield (1st wife), Ruth M Bradeen (2nd wife)Durgin. John and Sarah Ordway Durgin.
I have pictures of their stones which I took while living there.
I am now curious as to where the others are that are listed in the Durgin Cemetery.

Dear Debra:

I have recently found out that I am a direct descendant to Josiah Durgin who fought in the American Revolution.

Given your posted photo of his grave marker, I presume you are as well? If so, I am curious about any other living descendants known, as well as locations. I have contacted Victoria, who also has posts connected to yours.

Thank you!

Hi Debra,

It won't let me reverse it. If you will delete it at your end, then let me know when you do, I will re-enter it without your name on it. Hope this makes sense!

Hi Debbi,

I have transferred Leona over to you. There are several other Wilmes buried there in Dubois County, Indiana. Here are their first names:

Pvt. Henry
Joseph B
Joseph H
Maria F
Robert J

Let me know if you want any or all of them transferred over to you.

Best wishes for a happy and healthy 2015!
