    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.

    • Hello Carol I’ve asked Jackie Bradeen, our resident historian to look into this. Please feel free to reach out directly to her at jbradeen@uninets.net
