I was scrolling through family names on boards and tried Demmons. My Gt Grandmother Jenny Demmons Davis' Dad and Mom were Charles A and Mary F? I believe. I know I learned of Machias and Dover Foxcroft and Portland and so many little towns when I started looking into geneology. At that point I literally called town halls and talked to people at 6 am central time and they would look for my relatives. No computer in 1996.
I know her brother Charles died overseas of the flu in 1917 or 18. I believe I have both of their photos. There also was a Bernice and a Walter in our family early this century.
I will have to drag out what I have to see why Machias rings a bell for me. I may have connected the dots between sibs back in the 90's.
Do any of those names sound familiar?
I use email more than ancestry.
