Hi! Sorry re great delay, ended up near crippled with arthritis a few years, doing better now on new drug regimen and getting back into geneology. I hope you are happy and doing well. Answering your first question:
Some of my ancestors came from 5 Islands off Nova Scotia-- Andrews Thompson was the father and Virtue Vaughn was the mother of my 2nd Great Grandmother.
Yes the name Beveridge/Beverage is used inter-changeably even within the families; in researching my family I have found that most of the time, if I put in either version of the name, I generally get results for both,i.e. I have cousins from within the same family the use different spellings of the same name.
I did take a quick look at your Adam James Beveridge and will take a more intensive look later (there might be some possibility of relationship there). One of the major obstacles of researching the Irish/Scotch-Irish genealogy sites is that the strife's within Ireland and that with England, caused much damage to records (many churches and records were destroyed and what records remain are far and few between, in addition when a record is found (you usually get the name and a little data) in order to view the entire record there is quite a cost involved.
I am going to review the autograph album this evening (when all is quiet and calm). I looks as so this might have some possibilities for a connection.
Hello there Pam, my grandmother is a Mitchell from East Jeddore Nova Scotia. Any names in particular? I'm trying to hunt down my surname heritage "Lynch". Traced it to a Michael A Lynch from Calais Maine. I was unable to read the handwriting to see his fathers name on his marriage ledger. Just getting started here.
Finally got back into the site and saw your note. I research for the Soules but no I wasn't asking about them. Info always welcome tho., My ggggrandmother Sarah Patterson b. 1811 Mass. m. Morey Tucker. 04 May 1832 in Portland, Me. Children: Amanda Cecelia Tucker and Samuel A. Tucker. I have quite a bit about Amanda but would love to have more. Amanda Cecelia Tucker was b. 1831-1860 and m. Henry Porter Dewey. Amanda's grave store is in the cemetery overlooking Lubec and the bay . Amanda died at about 29 years of age. I have been to the Cemetery but can't remember the name. Thank you for writing to me.

Pam: I am researching only Cowperthwaites in Maine. My research is attempting to show that the vast majority of Cowperthwaites in our state did, in actuality come from the NY/NJ area. They were Loyalists and in 1775-6-7, they left their possessions and went north. It was not until well after the American Revolution that they returned to the U.S. as we know it today.
I was born in Eastport Maine. My grandfather was Samuel David Berman and my grandmother was Ruth Wolff Berman. They had Bermn's clothing store. I am trying to find out more about the original store they had before the town fire.
Hi, I am researching Maine Johonnetts. The family patriarch lived in Palmyra--I grew up in the farmhouse there, although I am not related to the family. I saw your posting of a postcard from Aubrey Johonnett, which caught my eye. He sent it from Damariscotta, I believe. If you ever run across anything more on this family, I'd be ever so interested in it.
Thank you! I am also helping some Eastport friends with their family trees, so it will be useful in filling in blanks or finding connections for them too. Right now for a friend I am looking for info on William Beaney's parents, he was from NB but came to Eastport in mid-1800s. Any Beaney family info appreciated.
