I began searching my family tree in the 1970s after my grandmother told me her grandmother was Italian. I had no idea! So here I am, still searching for the relatives, the skeletons and the truth to who they were, where they were and perhaps why they made the decisions they did. Truly a Nancy Drew mystery waiting to be solved.|

|Nor Kleppa||RE: 101757921 Mrs L W Hale|
Thanks so much for all the work you have done recording the Hales and others in the Castine Cemetery! I never saw your message until today.
Lois Wright Rice m. Hale (1825-1873) was originally from Conway, Massachusetts and was the daughter of Col. Austin Rice and Charlotte Baker m. Rice (source - Col Austin Rice, Charlotte Baker Rice: A Memorial by Charles Baker Rice).
Lois graduated Mt. Holyoke Seminary in 1845. Then, she worked as a teacher in Marietta, Ohio, and for several years at 4-5 schools in Massachusetts. She taught for a year at Mt. Holyoke before marrying Thomas E. Hale (1818-1910) of Castine in 1854. Alumni catalogues document this, as does the Holyoke website. Her husband, Thomas E. Hale was a farmer and the son of Thomas E. Hale Esq. (1782-1821) the Castine Historical Society has a painting of Thomas E Esq that hung in the historic Hale House on Court Street in Castine for years. TEHale Esq. b. 1782 was originally from Rutland, Vermont. He was actually only 39 years old when he died (I think your listing has him 69 years) and was a graduate of Middlebury College in 1804 (this documented in alumni catalogues).
Lois W Rice and Thomas E. Hale (b.1818) had 6 children:
Lucy Elizabeth Hale m. Fiske 1855-1934
Charlotte Rice Hale m. Stodder 1857-1939 (my great grandmother)
Mary Louise Hale m. Oakshette 1859-1908
Harriet (Hattie) Ives Hale m. Poeton 1863-1960
Thomas Edward Hale Jr. 1865-1938
Jane (Jennie) Russell Hale m. Hill 1869-1559
There are some other individual Hales I know about from the Castine Cemetery as well. For instance, Ruth Hale (1790-1814 (1)) and Capt. James Hale (1792-1821) were both born in Rutland and were Thomas E. Hale Esq. 's sister and brother. Capt. James of the Brig Ann, actually died at sea. Their deaths, ages and Castine connections are documented in newspaper obituaries from the time. There are other Hales in the Cemetery that can be connected to this family as well.
It should also be noted that Thomas E. Hale, the farmer, was married twice. His first wife was Mary E. Cobb died the year they married (1943).

|Ben Talley||Josiah Clark|
Hi. Josiah Clark is my 6th great grandfather. He served in the Revolutionary War yet nobody knows where he is buried. The SAR lists "area" cemetery in Maine. Wondering whether you have any other information.
Birth date ? He was Baptized on 20 Feb 1739 in Harwich, Barnstable, Massachusetts, United States
22 Dec 1830 in Harpswell, Cumberland, Maine, United States
Thanks and Cheers. Ben Talley

Thanks for the reply.
Two unrelated Sawyer families at Castine at that time.
David, jr was born 1831 on Deer Isle, son of David and Rachel Pressley Sawyer. [David,sr marr 2nd Adeline Dunham [Lot A 156]
David, jr was single when he enlisted in the CW.
David, jr is with the Mark + Lucinda Hatch family in 1850.
David, jr died of wounds Washington, DC 1864.
David H [ 101018890 ] was born 1832 in Castine son of David and Hepsebeth Foster Sawyer. David H marr  Susan J Coombs She d. 1874. David H is with his mother "Hepyebith" Sawyer in 1850.
David H died Castine 1914
No need for a transfer as I've linked David jr to his father. Mother is likely bur. Deer Isle.
I now have the Castine Town Cem records and will try to sort the two families on Find A Grave.
