Looking for info regarding my grandparents' divorce. My maternal grandmother was Dorcas Margaret PERKINS. She was the daughter of Orlando and Annie May (GOWER) PERKINS. Dorcas PERKINS married James Alan POOLE on 22 Dec 1921. At that time, they lived in the Woodland/Calais area. They had five children, one who died at age one. Some time in the early 1930s, Dorcas and James POOLE separated. I cannot find a record of the divorce. My grandmother moved to Baltimore, Maryland, for a while and then to Connecticut. My grandmother later re-married. Her second husband was John Walter CYR, who came from northern Maine. I have not found a record of their marriage. John Walter CYR was the son of Herbert CYR. James POOLE had several siblings: John, George, Charles, William, Donald, Owen, Guy, and Dorothy. Any info on their families would be appreciated also.
Emeline BEALE/PERCIVAL born about 1818. 1830 married Gordon PERCIVAL in Bangor. Some trees show parents as Horatio and Elizabeth/Julia; others as Isaac and Elizabeth STEVENS. None seem to have supporting documentation. Emeline died 1874, buried in Hudson, Maine. Also birth location is unknown. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Searching for Cephas Perley MOORE located in Hermon, Maine, in 1850. He would have been 15. Also looking for any info connecting Cephas with his father, Henry C. MOORE. Henry was married to Lydia HAYDEN abt. 1830 and they had 3 children: Cephas Perley, Henry A. and Sylvena J. (aka Jenny). Lydia and children were listed on the 1850 census with Lydia's brother, James HAYDEN, his wife Julia and children: Julia, Henry, Betsey, John, Ira and Mary L. Cephas moved to California in 1858 and then Lydia and Sylvena moved out to California as well in or around 1862. Henry MOORE and his parents are who I really need more info on.
