Thank you Pam. Good tips about county seat. Looking forward to more responses.

Hope someone responds to you, Beverley!  There's even a town on Deer Island called Lambertville.  If you've never been there before, prepare to be awed.  The ocean is always lovely but when your view is studded by spruce covered islands, it's breathtaking.  You will probably want to visit St. George, NB, St. Andrews NB (county seat - ask for Shirley O'Neill), Calais ME, Eastport ME and Machias ME (county seat).  Eastport had a doctor so many women from the West Isles went there to deliver babies.  There's a private car ferry between Deer Island and Eastport.

Looking for information on the Lamberts of Deer Island. My gg grandmother was Josephine lambert, daughter of James. I see there are still lots of references to Lamberts on the Island. I am curious to know where James came from and if his family were Loyalists. I am currently in Tucson, AZ, but will visit Deer Island in May.

I have been doing research on my families of Charlotte County for several years and find everything which I have learned to leave me with even greater curiosity!  L'Etete and Back Bay of the two main areas.  Is there anyone else who might know about these ancestors of mine....  Jane Holmes d/o Stephen and Elizabeth and great grand dau of Joseph Holmes and Silence Brown.  Are the Brown's on Campobello related to Silence Brown.  I'll back-up.  Silence is from Scarborough Maine area and her husband Joseph Holmes was from there also.  They first moved to Machias for only a few years and then by 1770 Joseph and Silence and family settled at Campobello Island.  Their dau. Dolly b. 1770 married Robert Wilson.  I do understand that most of my ancestors of Charlotte Co. were loyalist, but a few were immigrants from Ireland, like the McAleese family aka McLeese.

Just emailed the Hessian expert and gave her the name Spates, Spech, Specht, etc.  I had initially contacted her to tell her that a researcher in Germany had stolen 15000 Hessian-related books from libraries and archives, though most have been retrieved, but not re-distributed as there are no obvious markings of ownership.  She is headed to Germany tomorrow for 3 weeks of research.  It would be wonderful to hear that she recognizes the name and has some info!

Another thing - you might want to check Eastport for Lucy's birth record, as some women who lived on the West Isles or perhaps even St. George would go to Eastport to deliver because there was a doctor there.  The records could be in either place.  And the notices could be in those Eastport Sentinels, too.

Thought of something - in case you're interested in the Hessian aspect, there is a German lady living at Bangor who is an authority on the subject.  I've heard a couple of her presentations - she goes to Germany at least once a year to research.  This doesn't answer your Hanscom question but might give you some insight on the Spates line, in case she has something relevant to - was it? - Specht?

Looking for birth record for: Lucy A Hanscom b.1821 (St George) daughter of Dependence and Jane (Low) Hanscom.  Also her marriage (not sure of location) about 1845 to James W. Spates.  Archives etc thus far no results
