I have just started researching my sister-in-law's family history. Her grandmother was Edith Fay Bragdon, b. 24 Apr 1904 in Monticello, Aroostook, ME, d/o Orlando Lafayette Bragdon. Orlando's father was a Henry Bragdon.
Also, one of her great grandparents was Richard Levarah Bell, whose eldest son, Thomas Colby Bell, married Mildred Laura Bragdon, the daughter of Henry Bragdon and Linnie Helena Garrison.
Do you know how (or even if) this family relates to the Bragdons of Southern Maine? Who were Henry's parents? Were Orlando & Henry (father of Mildred) brothers?
