      I'd like to wish a Happy Birthday to my great grandfather Edgar
      Willis Dyer.

      Edgar Willis Dyer born 30 September 1867 in Thorndike, Waldo
      County, Maine son of Parris Dyer (Levi , George , ) and Alice Ann
      Haskell (Nathaniel Smith 7, William 6, John 5, William 4, Thomas 3,
      Benjamin 2, Captain William 1). He died 3 April 1931 in Belfast,
      Waldo County, Maine and is buried in Thorndike.

      His wife was Anna May Dolloff born 21 September 1874 daughter of
      Daniel B Dolloff (Daniel B 7, [weak link here] Daniel B 6, Noah 5,
      Thomas 4, Nicholas 3, Thomas 2, Christian 1) and Asenath Haskell
      Pendleton (Peleg 7, William 6, Lt. Peleg 5, Col. William 4, Jospeh
      3, Capt. James 2, Major Brian 1). She died 20 January 1916 and is
      buried in Thorndike.

      Children:

      1. baby Dyer born 8 March 1898 in Thorndike.

      2. Sadie Jane Dyer born 30 April 1899 in Thorndike, died 16
      November 1973 in Searsport, Waldo County, Maine. Married John
      Herbert Merry of Thorndike son of Herbert Leslie Merry and Selena
      Irene Raven 26 October 1917 in Thorndike. Four sons and four
      daughters. (my line)

      Edgar and Anna also cared for two foster children, Marie [Living]
      (born May 18, 1911) and Blanche Small. It is not clear whether
      either of these foster children were adopted. Anna's obituary in
      1916 names Blanche as an adopted child but no official records
      stating such have been found.

      After Anna's death in a fire in 1916 daughter Sadie continued to
      raise Marie in the Merry home after Sadie's marriage.

      Edgar married Blanche Small 19 October 1917 in Belfast and they had
      three sons. Blanche was born about 1898 in Islesboro, Waldo County,
      Maine daughter of James Ira Small (Joel 8, Joel 7, Thomas 6, Thomas
      5, Edward 4, Daniel 3, Francis 2, Edward 1) and Carol R. "Caddie"
      Lawrence. She died in 1965.
