2. Re: [MEPENOBS] Bangor to Minnesota [1]
Hi Linda, I have an Abigail Greeley in my line and after noting your response, I checked the IGI and found that she had married a Stephen Longfellow, so guess we do have a common ancestor. Abigail is my 3 great grand aunt. Talk about a "shirt tail" relative. No, I have not researched the Longfellow line. Can you tell me how Stephen Longfellow b 4/27/1760 is related to Henry Wadsworth Longfellow b 2/20/1807. Do you, by any chance, have a web site on the Longfellows? Th

Yes, but in the Bangor area there were plenty of woods around. The area was very wooded even tho the city did encroach and bring civilization..they didn't have to go to Minnesota for trees...or fish for that matter. Maybe they were wanting to farm. New enterprises. One goes and many follow. Go west, young man, go west. Some got as far as California eventually. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Mary Bakeman" To: Sent: Wednesday, January 16, 2008 1

Yes! Do transcribe them to the list. I have Bunkers coming from Gouldsboro, Maine to the Rum River (north of Minneapolis). I am curious to see how many of that family came there, if possible.

9. Re: [MEPENOBS] Bangor to Minnesota - CHAMBERLAIN, MILTON [1]
It's always seemed to me that by 1880 about half my home town (Anoka, MN, just north of the Twin Cities) had moved there either from Maine or from English Canada. My MILTON family came from Woodstock, Carleton Co., New Brunswick, via Jackson Brook, Washington Co. ME, to Anoka by about 1860, if I remember correctly. My CHAMBERLAIN ancestor got to town a little later - probably about 1880 - and I think from somewhere in Penobscot Co. ME. He's my main missing link. Based on the little bit I've been able to

Hi, Phyllis -- All good greetings for the New Year to you, too, Phyllis. Haven't accomplished much lately on the Mansell line, have been drowning in paperwork tryiing to get Clyde's affairs settled. He left things in excellent order, but still required to change names on deeds, etc., and settle up with the tax man. Never got to ME last Spring, too much going on here, but hopefully can go this year, as am still hoping to pull together all of Hiram's huge family, not an easy task since none of them

I live in Minnesota, however, both my maternal great grandparents were born in Maine. Augustus Buell Greeley was born in Palermo and his wife, Phoebe Elizabeth Gray was born in Blue Hill, Hancock, Maine. Thanks again for your help Blanche **************Start the year off right. Ea

Blanche, I'll make an attempt! William Longfellow, the immigrant,(1650-1690) m Anne Sewall in 1676/78. This couple had 6 children.
