1861 envelope to Robert LIVINGSTON of Bowdoinham from Bristol, England

Classification: Query
Surnames: LIVINGSTON
I recently found a photograph of an old envelope that was sent to Robert LIVINGSTON of Bowdoinham from Bristol, England in 1861. You can see the envelope on http://philgen.org (search on LIVINGSTON, click on View, and scroll to the bottom of the page), or click on the link below. I am unable to find him in a census or similar source and wondered if someone more familiar with Sagadahoc County can find him. I believe that Bristol, England may be his or his parents' birthplace and this envelope will be helpful to someone in their genealogical research. The reason I have a photo of the envelope is because of my interest in using old envelopes and postcards in genealogical research. I have an article in the spring 2009 issue of New England Ancestors entitled Philatelic Genealogy (viewable at the philgen website) and have started the philgen website.

Here is a direct link to the photo of the envelope: http://philgen.org/index.php?option=com_fabrik&c=form&am...
