My father John Troy Gilman, b. 1911, d. 1976, is buried at Oak Hills Cemetery in Winterport, ME, along with his parents Frederick Avery Gilman, b. 1881, d. 1941, and Louise Troy Gilman, b. 1879, d. 1971; and grandparents George L. Gilman, b. 1847, d. 1909, and Flora E. (Holmes) Gilman, b. 1850, d. ?, and Frederick's siblings Lida, Ethel, and Clara, who died in childhood. George L. Gilman's parents were Eliza Doe, b. 1821-1823, and Simon Gilman, b. 1814-1815; and Flora E. Holmes' parents were Hiram Holmes, b. 1808, and Mary Avery, b. 1840 (also have siblings).
If anyone has any other information about the Holmes, Gilman, Doe, or Avery lines in and around Winterport, it would be greatly appreciated. I have never been to Maine but am very interested in learning what I can. I have been told (and have confirmed in census records) that George L. Gilman was a seaman/mariner and Simon Gilman was a shipmaster.
