looking for newspapers ca 1851 for Androscoggin county, ME
- Dear Listers,
I hope someone can point me in the right direction.
I am trying to find an obit for my ancestor Gideon Woodsum who died in
Poland, Androscoggin county, ME 24 Dec 1851.
I need to prove a connection to his father Caleb Woodsum. I know the probate
records have been destroyed for Cumberland county. Would anyone have access
to the probate records for Androscoggin county? I don't know if he left a
will. I have the book Woodsum family of America but I need a second source
to prove his connection to his parents Caleb Woodsum and Susannah Allen.
I did find a deed for Gideon but it did not say that his "father" left him
The town of Poland Maine doesn't have a death record for him. He was born in
Falmouth and they don't have a birth record for him. I don't know where he
was married probably Falmouth. He is buried in Locust Grove Cemetery in
Poland in a church cemetery. The church doesn't have any records for the
cemetery either. So, I am hoping for an obit.
Any assistance appreciated.
