Bio and Links
My wife and I have been very interested in tracing our family history back as far as we can for a couple of years now. After my grandparents and other relatives have passed away I was given all the pictures from their houses so I have a lot of very old pictures as well as very old family Bibles. My wife, children, and I have traveled all over Maine and into New Hampshire visiting cemeteries and taking pictures of our ancesters. It is a great project and we have learned a lot of interesting facts about our family heritage. Some of the names we have in our immediate pedegree are Hodsdon, Waltz, Kimball, Bowley, Garland, Thyng, Creamer, Leavitt, and Bartlett. Robert and Heidi Hodsdon

Abigail Hodsdon/Hodgdon Noble
I'm looking for information (ideally parents) on Abigail Hodsdon Noble 1741-1823. She lived (and died) in Alfred, ME and may have been from Berwick. Possibly her father was Joseph T Hodgdon and mother was Patience Wittom/Whitten/Whittum. She was married to Thomas Noble Jr and was the mother of Mary Polly Noble who died around 1805, in Alfred. I think. I would like to confirm her parents, and then also figure out where she was buried because it may help clear up where/when/why Mary Polly Noble (who married Tripp) died around 1805. Any info would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Gideon Bowley
Hi Robert, I have been working with the Gardiner, Maine Library which has the cemetery records for Oak Grove Cemetery. I believe the Gideon and Nancy Bowley you have made memorials for, but list as unknown are buried here in Oak Grove Cemetery. Gideon Bowley bought a lot in Oak Grove in 1872 right after the death of his daughter Mary A. Bowley in Feb 1872. Gideon's death is recorded here in Gardiner as Dec. 24, 1885 and his wife Nancy as Oct 5, 1885 age 71yrs. As Gideon bought the lot, it would be likely he was buried in the lot with other family members who died later and have better records of where they were buried. There were no records of burials in Oak Grove recorded before 1893 that exist now, only who bought which lots at Oak Grove. It is a large lot that could the graves of at least individuals, or more if cremated or children. The Lot number is 579.

RE: Esther Kimball
I've transferred the one other person listed on the same gravestone, Sabra Campbell. The memorial for Esther's son, Paul (135924860), is maintained by someone else so I can't transfer that one.

I transferred this memorial to you. Let me know if you'd like any others related to her - I'm no relation.

Jones Cushman
I apologize, I thought I had Jones Cushman's headstone, however, I believe I have what may of been a son of his also Named: Jones Cushman, because the date of death is 1847 (not 1825) and this Jones was only 41 years of age when he died in 1847. I will have to look again, and I apologize for my error. I am unclaiming your photo request for Jones Cushman.

Newington Hodgdons
We will be happy to revisit the Newington Cemetery to photograph Hodgdon headstones. George and Lavinia Hodgdon are not listed on the cemetery transcript on file in the town library. Their birth and death dates might be of assistance in locating them. The Hodgdons recently requested are on the transcript so locating their plots won't be a problem.

Blessings, Alice

George and Annie Greenslade photo request
Greetings Robert,

I have just filled your photo request for George and Annie. I have also linked them to their infant daughter who died at birth, and I have sent an edit to link them to their other daughter Irene who died in California.
These are not in my family tree, I photographed the cemetery. If you would like a transfer just let me know.

Info on Waltz
Hi Robert.

I'm very impressed with your devotion to your research! I've traced my mothers side of the family back to Andreas Waltz. It was a shock to learn that my mother's side of the family (Wallace) traced back to the name Waltz. From what I can tell, Charles Waltz (1779-1860) may have changed the name over. I trace my line back to his first son Peter Wallace (1807-1895). I'm still trying to figure it all out.

I would be very excited to learn any more info that you could provide. Sometimes I see the spelling "Woltz" which is confusing. It was fascinating learning about the German immigration to Waldoboro around 1750s. I went hunting around some old cemeteries in Waldoboro today and saw some Waltz but the dates did not go very far back.

Thanks for any info you can provide!
