My name is Marilyn Strout and I am also the Charlotte County Coordinator. My mother was raised on Deer Island, in Richardson and descends from the Johnson & Fitzmaurice (Rollingdam) Family. My dad descends from a founding father of St. Stephen . . . James Maxwell. I grew up in St. Stephen & Calais and still have family in the area. I currently live in south western Maine near Brunswick. I usually come home to visit every May for a photographing trip.

In May of 2007, my friend Dorene Bartlett and I travelled the roads of Saint Patrick Parish and took 443 photographs of tombstones. (Watch for them to appear on this site in the coming months). We met some wonderful residents who took the time to direct me to some out-of-the-way tombstones that I never would have found.

Please do not hesitate to drop me  a note, if you'd like to ask a question.   If you have a CD or a Book that you are willing to do lookup in, please let me know.  I want these pages to be YOUR pages too and I'm hoping you will give me all kinds of help! If you see a broken link, know of a link I can add, or would like to ask a question or make any other comments.
