    I am a descendent of the Kelley family that came from or through Unity Maine and took a ship around the horn of South America during the 1800s. I’m looking for information about my family. Can you help me?

    Sophia P Tozier Ward was my grandmother and I have a portrait of her done in Unity by an artist who signed it RCM, the portrait is Very unusual, beautiful and done on a burlap like canvas . Do you know the name of the artist? I am the keeper of the family history and have many photos… I’d like to know the background of this amazing portrait. Hope you can help me. Thanks, Joanne Clare Waugh


    My 3rd great-grandmother Merinda/Miranda Paine/Payne was born in Unity about Sept 1811. She married Richard Kimball of Belmont and died in Belmont in 1873. Her father was John Paine/Payne from Truro, Barnstable, Mass. He died in Unity on 26 Aug 1841 but is buried in Truro. I would be interested in obtaining any additional information you may have regarding this family. Also, I will be visiting Maine later in August 2016; would it be possible to visit the Society and/or attend the August 23 meeting? I look fwd to your reply.

    I’m looking for pictures/stories/details about the 100+ year old bank on Main Street or about the area surrounding the bank. Any chance the Historical Society has any information in that regard. I’m hoping to visit you this coming Thursday if possible.

  5. Hello — does this historical society or anyone connected to it have any photographs from Burnham Maine from circa 1950-1970? More specifically, I am interested in the bridge on troy road and that area, where it intersects North Main (Rt 100), and Harry Good’s Store, and that little intersection area.
    I am interested in the Elkins and Wheeler families who have lived in this area and nearby towns. Sprecifically, the lives of Doreen F. Wheeler and Robert H. Wheeler. thank you
