Hi Brandon,

When I have time, I like to offer information on towns and cities people are researching. Grand Lake Stream sounded familiar so I looked it up, and this site says it is still a "plantation." So people said to have living there might be mentioned in the towns surrounding the lake. In the map I'm holding in my hands, Grand Lake Stream is beside "Big Lake" and they are part of a set of lakes with the closest town, Princeton. (Where my KIDDER's settled.)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Lake_Stream,_Maine

In my KIDDER / WILKINS research, for example, my ancestors married in "Baskehegan Lake" in 1834, which I don't think is even a plantation. According to this map, the town currently beside it is Brookton.

(I saw one comment on-line just now which said that, in the early 1800's, when "Lakes" are mentioned as a place for someone to live, they meant the towns surrounding the lake.)

I don't have "WHITE" on my family-tree that I know of, but I don't know the maiden names of 2 WILKINS sons in Aroostook County.

Just an FYI.

(P.S. Joseph "Calvin" KIDDER (1799-1891) was in Calais from 1830, and Mary WILKINS family had moved to Amity (North Amity?) during 1830's.) They had 6 children, raising them in Calais, but lost 2 at Ages 16 and 21. Their oldest settled in Calais initially, the 3 others settled in Princeton.)
