Comments: Hi. I was excited to find this wonderful site! I am the ggg
grand daughter of Francis Christiern (Castine).  I heard a story that he was an escaped convict from France who stowed away on a ship and picked the name Castine from a poster he saw once he landed in Yarmouth. I think not.
But I don't know if it was his first or second wife who was my ggg grandmother.

Comments: Hello, this is just a shot in the dark. I notice there's a lot of the name Pottie in the Maritimes. I have always tried to get ahold old my old friend Shawn Pottie from Chilliwack  b. c. We knew eachother when we were teens. Now I'm 46. He lived on a farm with his folks. Anyone know of this family. Any Potties had them for relatives out here? Just thought I'd give it a try. Thanks a lot. Bobby in Nanaimo.

Comments: I was doing a little research on my maiden name (d'Entremont) and I found there was much to read and learn! My father is Richard D'Entremont and my mother Gertrude Amerault. Both of their parents came to Mass. from Nova Scotia (my father's parents from West Pubnico)where most of our cousins still reside today. My parents have 5 children...Kathleen, Diane, James, Debra & Cheryl. My grandparents are Stephen & Jeanett d'Entremont and Lester & Clara Amerault. If anyone reading this happens to know my family, drop me an e-mail. I would love to hear from you.

Comments: Hi. I enjoy "Villages of Yarmouth" and think it is a great resource. I grew up in Lake Doucette, Digby Co.

I noticed something very curious on this 1884 map recently. Look at the railway coming into Yarmouth from the north. Between Ohio and Brazil Lake is a place called "Green Cave."  ???


No place of that name shows up on a modern map, nor on the A. F. Church map of 1871. It seems like it would be somewhere between Brenton and Deerfield, just south of Lake George. The geology map indicates that the bedrock in this area is of the White Rock Formation, which is known to include limestone in some cases, so it is not impossible that there could be a bona fide solution cave in this area.

However, apart from this one map, I've never heard anything about a "Green Cave" in that area. If anyone here has any knowledge of "Green Cave," or any ideas on how I could track this down, could you please Email me at deveau@chebucto.ns.ca.

I was born at Port Maitland March 7, 1939, the same day as Freda Nickerson and lived on the Richmond  Road across from Joe & Emily Carey.
In 1954 I moved to New Hampshire with my parents Earle and Leona Chute, my brother Fred, Richard, sister Marlene and David. Marlene and Dick are both deceased.

I graduated from Kennett High School in Conway, NH in 1957 and joined the U.S. Army and served as a Paratrooper with the 82nd.Division obtaining the rank of First Sergeant. I used the GI Bill to obtain a BS Degree and taught school for 10 years.
Been married twice, have 2 children, Chris, 21, a Paratrooper with the 82nd. Abn. Div., daughter Julie 25, a School Teacher in Hartford, Ct. they have 2 children.
In closing, want to thank everyone that I grew up with for the wonderful childhood experiences. Not a day goes by that I do not think of you all. The parents of my childhood friends were like an extended family, looking out for the safety of us all.
 May God bless you.

Comments: Thank you for a trip down memory lane - actually, down a memory road carved long before I arrived on the scene in 1950. My grandmother was cousin to George Killam, a very nice person who was admired and liked by us all during his rare visits to New Jersey. I read the article about Miss Killam's kind and thoughtful act and the beautiful stallion sculpture and all it's subsequent care. It gave me a feeling of pride and happiness, because we are probably distantly related. From, Karin Thompson

Webmaster Comment:  I could not find any informarion on Haymaker Island.  The only place on the net where it is mentioned is on this site at: http://www.yarmouth.org/villages/tusketis/  and the person who recorded the information did not leave a referance.  It was probably named because their was hay or marsh grass available their.  If any one has information on this I would also be interested in knowing.  Likewise the only information I have on Harris Island is on that page.
