RE: [MaineFamilies] Digest Number 474
- Hi David --
I can help some with the NOYES side of the house. Sylvia's father, Peter,
married Frances "Fanny" NOYES. You can find her ancestry at my Gencircles
database at http://www.gencircles.com/users/noyes/1/data/8594
I'll send an ancestry report to you separately.

Subject: Hello Maine Families~ new guy
Just a hello,
I joined on several days back and have not seen any activity. Guess
you all talked yourselves out before I got here! :D
Well, I am still in that ambitious mode - gathering all I can,
organizing the data, drawing up a family tree, seeking leads on dead
ends, etc. - which is what brought me here~
One leg of my family leads back to the very early days of Maine
territory and I have been thrilled to see all the connections there!
Among the family names are:
Bartlett - Bittfield - Chase - Crosby - Currier - Griffin - Hale -
Hutchinson - Jewett - Merrill - Morse - Moulton - Noyes - Perkins -
Philbrick - Poor(e) - Pickard - Platt - Roberts - Sargent - Sawyer -
Shattswell - Weed - Wheeler - Winsley - Wood - Yoeman
Some of these names hale from the early 1600's Mass & NH but all lead
down to my GG Grandmother Sylvia Philbrick b. 1832/d. 1865, Jefferson
Maine. I have worked out a great deal on her family & ancestors but
scarcely a thing on her Husband - John J. (S) Sutherland - who
emigrated from Upper Canada in 1852. I am interested in extending and
sharing any of my current information on Sylvias ancestors and have
some great internet sites that have been tremendous help, but am
seeking a needle in the haystack on her husband.
As I settle in and get a feel for the group I will post some queries
for further info on my list, but for now..... Hello!

- OK ~ What I have received thus far has been
wonderfully helpful on the family lines above Sylvia
Philbrick b.1832. That particular area I have much
underway and your input has helped to confirm atleast
three namesakes so far. But I have another ancient
Maine family line that I currently have very little on
and hear there is a great deal allready documented.
My Gg Grandfather followed the Philbrick family and
sailed around South America and came to settle
Catalina Island off the coast of California. He
hailes from the Waldo and Saghadoc Maine areas. His
name was Jacob Willey, son of John Willey (b.1801) &
Jacob Married Frances Snowman, daughter of William
Snowman (b.1796) & Mary Weymout (b.1797).
If you have any info on these lines it would also be
