I remember my mother and grandfather talking about the Hellam Furniture factory, but I didn't know Aquilla Fauth once owned it.
Aquilla Fauth was a first cousin of my grandfather, David Aquilla Keller, who was born in 1871. David's father and Aquilla's mother were siblings.
Do you have any idea where the name Aquilla came from? Seems strange that two first cousins, born four years apart, would both have Aquilla as part of their name. My mother always said she had no idea where the name came from.
My family history says that Aquilla Fauth operated the general store in Delroy for many years, before selling it to my mother's cousin, Walter Leiphart. Other Fauth family members operated cigar factories in the area.
The Fauths and Kellers have other links, too.

Hope all is well in Maine.
You can contact me off this list at, if you want.
