Researching Downeast Maine and Maritime Canada Families Together

Antone Family of Pembroke, Maine

This family has been hard to trace online because of conflicting information. I believe the original Antone, whose name may have been a variation of Anthony, was born in Portugal and was a fisherman or sea captain.


His son, possibly named John D. Belbarb Antone, married a Jane Denbow from Lubec. I don't know if Denbow was her maiden name.

Please notice at the bottom of the page a 1917 postcard showing Fort Devens, Ayer, Massachusetts, sent by F. C. D. to  Phil Antone.

Hello Todd, 

I hope this finds you well.  I am from this family on my mother's side.  I do not see my grandmother's name on here nor her sisters.  My name is Greg Smith and I am the youngest son of Laurence A. Smith of Calais.  Silvia Sayers (Hawkes) is my mother, but her mother's name was Alice Pettigrew (Antone).  She and the living Antone (E.R. Antone of Dennysville) were cousins.  My grandmother Alice Antone had two sisters -- Hilda and Medeline -- and a couple of brothers as well. I will do some research to find their names.  Her father's name was Sargent Antone and her mother's name was Nellie Mae Antone (I don't know her last name off hand).  I will get more specific information and bring it here.  I just received an email from the adminstrator of Downeast maine Genealogy and out of curiousity looked up my mom's family.  So happy to see your hard work here.
