I am trying to find information on the Gaius SOULE family. Gaius born 1803, Rome, Maine; Lavinia TOBIE born 1809 Montville, Maine, and their daughter(?) Helen Augusta M. SOULE b. 1829.  Gaius and Lavinia's publishment and marriage were 1828/1829 - he of Liberty, she of Montville. Helen  was of Montville when she married Cleveland BACHELDER in 1845. I believe the family lived with Asa SOULE in 1830 in Garland. Gaius is mentioned in Garland History as being there in 1820's with father Asa and brothers. The ages of males/females in Asa's household match Asa, Ruth, his wife, Gaius, Lavinia, and Helen. Gaius may have died early before 1838 as he is not mentioned in Asa's will. He may be buried in a Penobscot cemetery Are there any other sources of Garland history that may be accessed? Thank you.

NEWCOMB, Delon  

I am assisting my local historical society in York, Maine, with research into American Civil War Veterans.  My task is to research citizens of York who served in the military.  It is quite apparent from what I have found in the US census that Delon NEWCOMB, b. early 1840's, was from Carmel, Maine.  However one reference to his civil war record indicates a connection to York.  Another indicates that he used the name John PRATT as an alias.  Is this name in anyone's database and do you have any information that would help me clarify his apparent connection to York and his use of an alias?  If you also have knowledge as to where he is buried, that would also be of interest in this research.
