The following people, books, links, and resources went in to establishing the Andrews Genealogy found on this site. Links will open in new windows. Thanks and appreciation goes to:
- First of all, my family, always the FIRST place to start when working on genealogy. I appreciate everyone's help, enthusiasm, and patience.
- Secondly, BLIND LUCK, for finding that little cemetery on Shag Pond Rd., Redding, Sumner, Maine.
Maine Families, Bk. 3, by Harold C. Perham discusses the Canwells, the Murches, and the Faunces, among other families. This is also the mysterious "Cole book" that contains the list of Cole ancestors that first got me interested in genealogy. A copy resides in the Maine State Library in Augusta.
Maine Families, Bk. 2, by Harold C. Perham discusses the Wing family. A copy resides in the Maine State Library in Augusta.
Saga of Two American Families: Andrews-Titus, by John Alva Titus is the only book to discuss the family of Peres Andrews. Titus found that the "old Greenwood records" identify Darius Andrews as Peres' father. I have a copy of these records on CD and I can verify that the "record" is there, although these documents are recreated from originals that were burned in a fire at the turn of the 20th century. Note also that Titus collapses Peres Andrews "Sr" of Minot-Auburn-Poland with Peres "Jr" of Franklin Plantation-Sumner, which I and others have definitively proved to be separate--and as yet unconnected--people. This work contains other errors, so use this information cautiously. A copy of the book resides in the Maine State Library in Augusta.
Maine town records scanned on CD available through Picton Press in Rockland, Maine have proved invaluable and a great investment.
I sure appreciate all the help Chris Dunham has given me via e-mail on several occasions. He provided, among other things, Peres Andrews and Abigail Keene's marriage date. And helped establish Abigail Keene's parents. Thanks!
