I AM SEARCHING FOR INFORMATION ON THE MABEL GOULD FAMILY.
I HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT SHE RESIDED ON AN INDIAN RESERVATION AND ASSISTED RAISING HER GRANDSON. GOULD WAS HER MAIDEN NAME AND I DO NOT KNOW HER MARRIED NAME. HER GRANDSON WAS BORN IN LOBSTER COVE-YORK-MAINE 4 JULY 1938 AND HIS NAME IS ROBERT, AND HE LIVED WITH HER ON THE RESERVATION AND WENT TO A SCHOOL THERE RUN BY NUNS. I DO NOT KNOW THE NAME OF THE RESERVATION.FAMILY HERE IN OHIO SAID STORY WAS THAT THE COVE WAS OUTSIDE HIS WINDOW. I KNOW THIS IS LITTLE INFORMATION, HOWEVER, IT IS ALL I HAVE.
ANY AND ALL ASSISTANCE WILL BE GREATFULLY APPRECIATED.

ROBERT'S SON WAS ONLY 11 YEARS OLD WHEN ROBERT DIED. HE SAID HIS FATHER DID NOT TALK MUCH ABOUT HIS PAST LIFE, HOWEVER THERE IS AN OLDER DAUGHTER THAT SAID THE FOLLOWING.
SHE SAID THAT ROBERT HAD AN OLDER BROTHER AND PART OF HIS NAME WAS MABEL. SHE SAID THAT ROBERT AND HIS BROTHER GOT
CHASED BY A BEAR AND THAT ROBERT KILLED THE BEAR WITH A KNIFE AND EARNED A FEATHER. WHEN HE WAS IN THE 8TH GRADE, AND A NUN HURT HIS HAND BADLY BECAUSE HE WAS USING HIS LEFT, NOT HIS RIGHT. IT WAS THEN THAT HE QUIT SCHOOL AND LEFT THE RESERVATION. HIS FATHER TOLD HIM THAT HE HAD TO PICK A LAST NAME. SO ROBERT NOW WAS KNOWN AS ROBERT GOULD POTTER. SHE SAID THE MOTHER WAS PART INDIAN AND FRENCH AND THE FATHER WAS FRENCH. THE MOTHER WAS THE DAUGHTER OF MABEL GOULD.
I KNOW THIS IS LITTLE BUT IT IS ALL THAT ROBERT JR. HAS, AND MAYBE SOME WILL BE ABLE TO ANSWER THE INFORMATION.
THANK YOU FOR ANSWERING ME AND HOPEFULLY YOU MIGHT GET ON A TRAIL OR LEAD US TO ONE.

YOU SURE KNOCKED ME ON MY (I'LL USE THE WORD HEELS).
I FEEL THAT MABEL GOULD POTTER WAS HIS MOTHER AND CHESTER WAS HIS FATHER. I FORGOT THE SISTER SAID SHE THOUGHT SHE HAD HEARD THAT THERE WERE TWINS, AND IT SHOWS CHESTER AND EDWARD M. (MABLE?) BOTH BEING 6 IN THE 1940'S AND ROBERT BEING 1. CAN YOU DIRECT ME TO A PLACE WHERE I MIGHT BE ABLE TO TRY FOR OBITS FOR MABEL AND CHESTER AND ANY OTHER MEMBERS OF THE FAMILY? I JUST TALKED TO ROBERT JR.'S WIFE AND SHE TOLD HIS SISTER ABOUT THE TWINS AND SHE SAID YES REMEMBERED THE NAME CHESTER.
I CAN'T THANK YOU ENOUGH FOR ALL YOUR ASSISTANCE.
