I offered to help her, and just got done talking with her, to put her in touch with this guy from East Machias . I hope this will help her on her Kennedy's side.
As my husband says I am in hog heaven when I get a call like this. I can hardly wait to hear when and if she gets in touch with them. Do I sound excited? Yup I am!!!
I have been plugging into my family tree program the Reynolds side and have been in contact Lucille Carr and her sisters.
A few years ago in September 2005 I think-- I had placed information in the Bangor Daily News in Roxanne Moore Saucier column and my cousin Faye Gardiner in Old Town read it, got in touch with these "Reynolds" cousins. Hallelujah, they called me and ever since I have new found "family". A whole bunch of them....LOL.
They did not know about my grandmother Angie, and I did not know much about their side except my grandmothers siblings names.
At this same time I got a call from Leonard Tibbetts the genealogist that he had all of the Reynolds family done!...When I asked him where was the book he told me that he had not published that one, but he would write it out for me and send it. At about 95 years of age I wondered if I would get it before he died. With the help of my cousins, we prayed a lot on this. Than one day in the mail on February 14, 2006 came the information that I needed. Off went a thank you note to him, and just in time it seems as he was not well. All he asked of me was-- would I take a picture of two gravestones in the Columbia Cemetery of Matthew Coffin. and wife
Sooooo tonight has been a good evening for me. Now if I could only find out who Naomi Davis is, besides being my great great grandmother, no parents-- nothing on her at all, but she did marry Horace Hutchings.

“If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together...there is something you must always remember...you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. but the most important thing is, even if we're apart.. I'll always be with you.”
I just received this in an email, and liked it. Hope you like it too!

I think the other Ingersoll-Wass Boil Dinner has cranberry beans in it, as I remember mom making it with whole cranberry beans (or pole beans) in it along with the corn beef and all of the other ingredients.....
I make it sometimes with the added cranberry beans in it as I put up some whole in my jars when I can in the summer. Fresh from my garden.
I love a boil dinner and the red flannel hash afterwards.. I think I just might have to have one soon.
Usually one has to have a canner to make this as with all of the ingredients you just don't have room in a small pot and why not invite someone in to help you eat it!
