Researching Downeast Maine and Maritime Canada Families Together
I took a look at various places online, and I can see that Dorcas has been an enigma. I was hoping to find something in the Maine birth records newly available online, just in case one of her children gave a different maiden name for her. No luck so far. It would be neat if she were a granddaughter of Hopley Yeaton. You might have to visit Machias (might be something in probate) or go through microfilms of newspapers. Hopefully someone else will have some info for you.
I searched Yeaton (with Chrome browser) and got 7 instances of Yeaton in the book. Some OCR versions of books are so poorly (or not even) edited, that words aren't recognized.
Your welcome, and like I said if I find anything else I will let you know.
