Seeking additional information on a fire May 13, 1877 in Calais that burned down the house of a Moses Craig. and involved a "serious accident".  One line reference found in the Portland Daily Press.

I am looking to connect with descendants of the following:

Samuel A. Woods b. 06 Feb 1849 in Eastport, Washington, Maine; d. 20 Sep 1905 in Calais, Washington, Maine married 06 May 1899 in Princeton, Washington, Maine to Clara McLaughlin b. 09 Jan 1868 n St. David, NB, Canada; d.  28 Apr 1916 in Calais, Washington, Maine. 


Samuel and Clara had three daughters who were born in Calais, Washington, Maine. They are: Eva M b. 1900, Margaret b. 1901 and Doris b. 1903.  I beleive Doris married Raymond Clifton Flood on 24 Jun 1924 in Alexander, Wash. Co., Maine.  I don't know what became of the two oldest girls, as their parents died when the girls were very young, they probably ended up with relatives.


Samuel is my 2nd Great Uncle, son of my Great Great grandparents, Samuel Woods and Margaret Curran.

I was just wondering if you had heard anything from Frances. I have to make a trip up to Topsfield as soon as the snow melts up there and I can take the Bible with me if that makes it easier for them.

I just hope that everyone will keep thier eyes open for Family Bibles that have gone missing.

Hi... I got the pictures uploaded. Sometimes I hate dial up. Took me 4 hours for nine pictures. One more to go.

If you hear from Frances and if this is thier Brown's or Neals and they want the Bible. Have them contact me and we can make arraingments to return the Bible.

You did a good thing today!

Okay the pictures are uploading now. It's going to take a long time. With the wind blowing my dial up is acting up.
Comment by Karen on March 24, 2010 at 7:22pm
I only have dial up so it might take a minute to add the pictures. So bare with me
Comment by Karen on March 24, 2010 at 7:18pm
Okay let me try that

Forget album at first - you add the photos and after you have uploaded them, there's an option at bottom to add them to an album or create a new one. You would choose to create a new one. That way you bypass the Add an Album route.
