Marshall Cemetery, Westfield, ME

Marshall Cemetery is located between Mars Hill  and Presque Isle, Me. on Rte 1.  I completed this cemetery after a request by one of the ACGS members looking for a relative he couldn't locate.  I started by calling the town hall for any information they had, they replied that it was a private cemetery and they had all the information they needed on the cemetery.  To my knowledge every cemetery unless on private unreachable land is open to the public so I proceeded to do my work.

Births, Marriages, Death, 1900-1945, Blaine ME

I was so impressed with Blaine's Town Manager, Chappy Clark, he was helpful with all three cemeteries beside being a really nice guy. I learned he didn't have any early vital records for Blaine  going  back to 1900's. 

   Some towns had published what they called Town Reports including yearly town information on everything that occurred, they also had all vital records for the year.   Usually they were saved in the town library or town office but Blaine didn't have any of the early books.  After some research,  I located a copy in Augusta, at the State Library.  I went downstate and was able to scan all the births, deaths and marriages that Chappy was missing.  I typed them  from 1900 to 1945 using my book format and Chappy now has a copy in the town office.
