There should be a place to post obituaries and other related data.

Lorraine Rice was killed instantly in a two car crash on Rt. 9 Jan 29. She was the daughter of Sadie (Lewis) Andrews, whose photos appear among the many here, and her husband Frank. Lorraine's husband Wayne is in EMMC as are the persons in the other vehicle.

I noticed a history of the 15 Key St. house on a realtor's website, which dates the house to 1824. After some poking through my files, I find page 91 of a 1901 Eastport City Directory that lists Samuel L. Wadsworth at 15 Key St.; son Frank T. at 8 Shackford; George F. at 50 High; and then a lot of Wadsworths at 20 Key: Henry H., auctioneer; Miss Irene H., bookkeeper, George S., student. I probably got that page from at the library.

Hi Kathryn,

Shackford Street is a pretty street, too. Which Wadsworths lived there?

Yes, I have had the pleasure of talking to Chris Brown. Someday I hope can go to the store and look at the pictures in the store.

I see that the Babb house is made out of stone and has a blue door and blue trimming. It is beautiful.

My draftee is Samuel Longfellow Wadsworth. He must have been named after either his uncle Samuel Longfellow (Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's dad) or his cousin Samuel Longfellow (Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's brother). His house is still standing, too. It is on Key Street a block up the hill from the Babb house. Wadsworth's house is the white house with the pillars. I did check the Soldiers and Sailors system and I found several Samuel Wadsworths, but none were with a Maine outfit. Because Wadsworth dealt in ship supplies, I wonder if he aided the union by supplying naval equipment before he was drafted.

Hi Kathryn,

That would be great to see the house. Is it near Key Street? I can walk Eastport Streets on my laptop with Google maps.

I read the list of soldiers in Kirby's book but I didn't find the name of my draftee. I should go back to my library to see who the other draftees were. There weren't that many from Eastport, probably fewer than ten.

Hi Kathryn,

Yes the Doctors Babb. Their house is still in Eastport? What I've found is that Drs. Eliza and Luther Babb bought land in north of Orlando in 1881. One daughter, Cora, also a doctor, married Dan Holden who was an early settler in the greater Orlando area. Holden was the postmaster at Altamonte Springs, then called Snowville, which was about ten miles north of Orlando. He bought land and developed a subdivion. Then he and his brother formed a successful citrus nursery in Winter Park, selling seedlings and budded orange trees and would clear land the establish groves. In 1895, Cora gave birth to baby Cora and that same year both her father and husband died.

Do you know about where the Eastport men who were drafted into the Civil War ended up? I found a draft record on that listed some Eastporters in the draft for the 5th congressional district on June 1863 and I haven't been able to find out which military group they joined.

No, not the same.  And I don't know the Donna Newman whom you are referring to.  Sorry!. :)

Kathryn, I so appologize for taking so long to reply to your last post.  I am most appreciative of you sharing your Cook information.  So far I can't make the connection between your Richard Cook and my Robert Cook.  The info I have on Robert Cook is:  He was born in 1785 in Scotland.  We believe he was in Canada by 1826 as we believe his son Samuel was born in Sackville,NB,Canada in 1826.  Robert Cook's wife was Elizabeth (maiden name unknown).  Both Robert Cook and Elizabeth are buried in the Westcock Cemetery, Sackville, Westmoreland, NB, Canada.  Robert Cook's son, Samuel Cook, married Judith Snowdon about 1852 in Sackville,NB,Canada.  Samuel Cook died 1882 in Sackville and Judith Snowdon Cook died in Sackville on14 February 1917.  Samuel and Judith Cook were my maternal great grandparents.  Again, thank you for contacting me regarding the Cook genealogy lines.

Kathryn, sorry!  I hit something on this page that took me out of this comment section before I finished my message.  I'm new to the site and still trying to figure out how to use it correctly (and not really that good on the computer to begin with!)  Anyway, my Cook line:

Samuel b. 1826  d. 1882 md. Judith Snowdon abt. 1852 - all 3 events in Sackville, Westmoreland, NB, Canada 

Robert Cook, born abt. 1785 in Scotland, d. Sackville, NB, Canada, death date unknown (Robert is the father of Samuel listed above).

Thank you.  Although, I am not sure which photo you are referring to. :)  If it is my profile picture, it is part of a Norman Rockwell painting entitled "Spring Flowers".
