There's also mention John and Lena Moholland and their children; John left Maine to bring up his family in Massachusetts. John was quite possibly Charles W. Moholland's brother, and they were quite possibly the sons of John Moholland and Eliza Sears, who was born in Eastport in 1826. Mention also of Thomas French and Sarah Jane French. I found a Thomas French in St. George, who married Sarah Jane Leavitt of St. George. Sarah Jane was the daughter of Ebenezer and Eleanor M. "Ellen" (Lee) French. This just gets more interesting!

I'm working on the genealogy of Charles W. Moholland & Hattie E. French. They had children: Martha V. born Eastport 17 Feb 1881; Fremont born 11 Aug 1882; Dora J. born 25 Feb 1883; Chester Mariner W. born 21 Mar 1884; Andrew M. born 19 Sep 1889. The handwriting is not clear in some places; some online sources give different, though close, dates. I have the feeling that this Bible was perhaps filled in later by one of the children, as the entry for Andrew's death describes him as "brother". So the sibling could have been correct in the birth dates or could have been off a bit. Much of the information deals with John Moholland and Lena. Perhaps John was the brother of Charles W. If you have any insights to add, please advise. One of my problems is that the Moholland name has several different forms.
