Downeast ME Genealogy


Most of the information on the following web pages is the result of research that I have done while trying to document my Washington County Maine ancestors. It includes information that I have transcribed from the relatively few records available, transcriptions provided to me by other researchers and transcriptions done in the 1930s by teacher and genealogist Edith Margaret (Kelley) Ashe Colton.

The focus is the Western Washington County ME area (Addison, Harrington, Columbia, Cherryfield, etc.). Hopefully these census records , vital records and cemetery inscriptions will help others in their research.

In transcribing this data, I have undoubtedly made mistakes - either in trying to read the sometimes faint original records, interpreting the occasional poor penmanship of the census takers or my own carelessness. Corrections would be appreciated.
