In Reply to: Marie Louise Oliver/ Elvry M Churchill by Joshua Allen Mercier of 3037

Joshua,

I found a bit for you. First I found an obituary for Elvry and it has his parents names as Henry and Florence Churchill. So then I went to census and looked for him with those parents.
************************************

Elvry Churchill
6 January, 2006
Elvry Churchill Buxton- Elvry Miles Churchill, age 96, of Carll Road, died on Jan. 9, 2006 at the Maine Medical Center. He was born on June 6, 1909, the son of Henry and Florence Churchill. As a child, he attended schools in Portland. Through out his life, Mr. Churchill worked as mechanic. He started his career with Yuderstrom Bros. Later, he owned a fleet of school buses and contracted with the town of Buxton before the schools owned buses. For a short while he was the school bus mechanic for MSAD #6 after the school department owned buses. When he moved to Jacksonville FL he worked for ABC Trailer Company and worked on different types of Travel Trailers. After he returned to Maine, he worked for Key Bank as a courier. Mr. Churchill was a longtime member of the Buxton Grange. He is predeceased by his beloved wife- Marie (Oliver) Churchill who died in 2002; and two sons- Donald and Richard Churchill. He is survived by a son- Carl Churchill and his wife Patricia of Buxton; and many grandchildren and great grandchildren. A visiting hour will be held on Wednesday evening from 6-7 PM at the Dennett, Craig & Pate Funeral Home, Rts. 202 and 4A (13 Portland Road) in Buxton. A funeral service will immediately follow at the funeral home at 7 PM. Burial will be in the spring at South Buxton (Tory Hill) Cemetery. www.dcpate.com In lieu of flowers, the family strongly suggests that donations be made to the Animal Refuge League, 449 Stroudwater St., Westbrook Maine 04092.

I found a family tree that shows Marie Louise Oliver as daughter of John and Grace Oliver. I have no way of knowing if that is correct or not but thought I would let you know.


I took a look for Henry P. Churchill before 1910 to see if I could find him with first wife.

1900 STRONG, FRANKLIN, MAINE
CHURCHILL
Henry P. age 31, born 1869 ME, both parents born ME, married 7 years, machinist

Geneva M. wife, age 28, born April 1872 ME both parents born ME, married 7 years, 1 child born 1 living

Clifford H. son age 5,born Sept. 1894 ME both parents born ME

1880 HEBRON, OXFORD, ME
CHURCHILL
Elisha T. (or P.) age 35, making shoes, born ME both parents born ME

Hannah P. wife, age 32, keeping house born ME both parents born ME

Henry T. (or P.) son age 12 at school, born ME both parents born ME

Elvry W. son age 8 , at school, born ME both parents born ME

** so that explains where the name Elvry came from
** the initials are T. in index but in actual image could be P.

1870 POLAND, ADROSCOGGIN, MAINE
CHURCHELL (as in index)
Elisha, age 25, farmer born ME

Hannah, age 22, keeping house, born ME

Henry P. age 2, born ME

next door is another Churchell family - could be parents of Elisha

CHURCHELL
James, age 55, farmer born Me

Hannah age 51, keeping house

D. Sidney age 20, born ME (initial looks like a D.? )

Orphy N. age 15, born ME (female) (initial looks like an N. ?)

Reuben age 12, born ME

1860 POLAND, ANDROSCOGGIN, ME
CHURCHILL
James N. age 45, stone mason born ME

Hannah age 41, born ME

Elisha, age 15 born ME

Harriett A. age 15 born ME

Demeric, age 10 born ME

Bennett age 8, born ME

Orphy, age 5, born ME

Rubin K. age 2, born ME

** so it seems Elisha is son of James and Hannah. and looks like Elisha had a twin sister.

1859 RAYMOND, CUMBERLAND, ME
CHURCHILL
James N.D. age 34, farmer born ME

Orpha W., age 31, born ME

Phebe D. age 12, born ME

Bela L. age 9 born ME (initial could be S.)

Elisha P. age 5, born ME

** Harriet is not with them in this census - odd!
