WALDO: How did WALDO CO. get its name? Was it after a founding family or famous person? I have been researching my WALDO family history and am wondering if there is a connection between my ancestors and Waldo Co.? My ancestor Hannah COGSWELL shipwrecked aboard the Angel Gabriel at Pemaquid Pt. ME on 1635 and then married my ancestor Cornelius WALDO in Chelmsford MA in 1652, but I have no history on Cornelius WALDO before that except he came from London. Was he from somewhere in WALDO CO or did he have relatives there? I have lots of interesting info/reocrd/photos/history I would love to share with someone and hope to find a WALDO cousin in the process!! Is there someone you know who may know the answer to this? A historian or WALDO family member or the library? Please write me.Happy trails;

COLMAN.  I would like to find out some information on my great great grandfather. I believe his name is Elijah Coleman (Colman) Dec, 1844. His wife names was Lizzie Dec 1848, he had a son named Arthur Feb 1870, daughter in law Hattie Carlon May 1869, grandson Robert Arthur Oct 1899, grand daughter Thelma, a daughter Ethel Sept 1876, who married an Emery, she had two children, Carl, May 1898, and Hazel, Aug 1899. I obtained this information from the 1900 census of Waldo County Stockton Springs. He was a farm laborer, His son Arthur was a salmon fisherman. According to the census ? Elijah father came from Mass. Which could have been Maine territory just before Maine became a state. He lived in the harbor in Searsport. Next to the old Harbor school. Which has since burnt down. What I need to know is that Elijah was his correct first name. Lizzie's last name so I can try to follow it back further. I know that I do have a lot of information so hopefully someone can help me.Thank you for your time and cooperation.

SMITH. Looking for a Manual SMITH who married a Sarah RAYMOND. They had a daughter who married Josiah Seekins of Swanville, ME in 1803. --- I can find no trace of them in the 1820 - 1830 or 1840 cenus, however I find a head of household Sarah SMITH in Castine, 1820. I thought she may be the widow of Manual, but she appears to be younger than the above Sarah (Raymond) SMITH. ?? Any SMITH or RAYMOND family researchers in Maine that someone could point me to? Has anyone run across the name of Manual SMITH? A look at the census index for Maine tells me that tracing the family name SMITH in Maine is no easy task! -- Another "remote" clue -- He "may" have come to Maine from New Brunswick? Thanks

My grandfather brought the tea back in time and was given command of a ship. We are looking for any record of his life as a Clipper Ship Captain and any record of ships which he may have sailed. Unfortunately, his Captain's Logs were lost long ago. His last name was McLellan, but he may have used at one time the name 'McLennan'. Any information would be deeply appreciated.

  • CLARK: Lemuel CLARK is listed in the 1790 Census in Frankfort Town, ME (now in Waldo Co.), but it states that he came from "Gouldsborough." This leads me to believe he may have been born there, but I have no access to vital records or other sources. I know very little about him-- no birth, marriage, or death dates, although I know he is buried in the cemetary off Goshen Road in Winterport, ME, and that his wife's name is said to be Nancy LITCHFIELD. His son Stephen CLARK was born in Frankfort, ME on 03/27/1807 and died in Winterport, ME on 06/?8/1845. He married, c. 1819, probably in Frankfort, one Prudence MARTIN, daughter of Holbrook MARTIN and Lydia HOSMER, originally of Marblehead, MA. Steven CLARK had a son, Colonel Joshua Martin CLARK, born in Winterport, ME on 04/24/1824, died Topeka, KS 10/09/1912. He married, date unknown, place unknown (perhaps in Ohio), one Lucy CHAMBERS, daughter of John CHAMBERS and Sarah NIXON (no further information known).
    Do you have any records of this Lemuel CLARK, or of his wife Nancy LITCHFIELD, or any of the other family members mentioned above? I am specifically trying to find out the names and dates of their parents, and from whence they came before they settled in Frankfort.
    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Please let me know if you need any more information from me; feel free to edit and post this query as needed.

I found two Rhodeses listed as heads of households, James and Thomas, from Bristol. Might you have any additional information on them? Can you tell me if either Jacob of Edward A. appear in local historical records, and if so, do the records go beyond them? Any record of a Bowles family?

  • REED: I recently obtained copies of marriage & birth records for an ancestor born in MA. It listed his mother as AUGUSTA M. (Madora, I believe) REED b. abt 1847 in Prospect, ME. Family oral history said she was Native American, which may or may not be true. Can you possibly tell me where I may write to obtain a copy of her birth record? I have no idea if she was Native American which tribal group she would have been a part of, so whatever help you could give would be greatly appreciated. Also is there anyone who does lookups for the books listed in the bibliography for Waldo County? Thank you so much, Kathie
