My gf John Demmons, b. abt 1874 probably in E. Machias; my ggm Gardner, Eunice, b. 1850/3 in ?East Machias, married to my ggf Alvin Demmons: b. ?1845- in ? Marion - died abt ?1903 ->
Eunice's maternal grandparents may have been Maker, Freeman b. 1800-1809 in ?Cutler & Grey, Mary, b. 1819/1823 in ME.
gm Bessie Frye, b. abt 1876 in Machiasport; her father was James Frye & her mother's name was Jane, last name unknown; and possiby, her grandfather was Benjamin Frye and gm was Mary (? last name); , who seems to have been born in New Brunswick. There are indications that Benjamin and his family moved back and forth between NB and the Whiting, East Machias area. I would very much like to know who Benjamin's parents were!
Anyone else with information on these families and/or who is also interested in these families, please contact me. I have the line for Demmons going back to England in 1599. My info re: Frye's and Gardners is much less complete. THANKS!
