Would appreciate some help with the GOODWIN family of Maine.

There were 4 sisters, no brothers.
Ardelia - Delia - per 1920 Fed Census, Durham, Androscoggin Cty, ME m
to Herman GRIFFIN, her age 39 so b c 1884.
Bertha C - per 1920 Fed Census, Lisbon, Androscoggin Cty, ME Lisbon,
m to Robert WHITTIER with age 36 so b c 1884
Harriet E - in same 1920 Fed Census, living with Bertha, Harriet age 46
so b c 1874. By family tradition, Harriet never married.
Olive R in same 1920 Fed Census, Lisbon, as a widow of STONE with two
sons, her age 57 so b c 1863. STONE son Carl my husband's father.

Have searched Fed Census1860, 1870, 1880, 1900, 1910 and cannot find
them or their parents for further genealogical progress. Am almost
convinced the whole family are aliens and simply dropped into Maine in
1920 . Or something. All b Maine, parents were b in Maine.

Thank you,
Avery Booth Stone
