The Dewsnaps Of Maine

Just wanted to get us on the boards...

My Great Grandmother Hilda Bailey Dewsnap married Arthur F. Dewsnap (You'll have to forgive me, I don't have many dates). They had my Grand Father Arthur F. Dewsnap Jr. My Great Uncle George And My Great Aunt Marjorie (Whom I never met).

My Grandfather married my Grandmother Barbara Schofield Dewsnap. They had fraternal twin sons Stanley (My Father) & Stephen Dewsnap. The twins were born on November 14th 1952. They also had another son Arthur F. Dewsnap III (We call him Rusty because of his red hair). Both of my Grandparents are now deceased.

My Father Stanley Dewsnap married at a very young age to a woman named Victoria Page. They had a daughter (My Half Sister) named Mary Ann Dewsnap (She now goes by Meri Page-Pronouced Mary). She and I are close, she lives in California. They divorced shortly after.

My Uncle Stephen Dewsnap married a woman named Toni, whom he had a daughter with. My Cousin Amelia F. Dewsnap. Uncle Steve died at a young age (He was 32 years old) from Cancer. His daughter Amelia got married this past summer to a man named Keith, they reside in Mass.

My Father (Stanley) was in the Air Force for 21 years. During that time he was at ont point stationed in South Korea. This is where he met my mother. They married and then had me, Melissa Lee Dewsnap. I was an only child born in South Carolina in 1982. I grew up on an Air Force Base in Maryland. My parents divorced when I was 10 years old. At this time my father had retired from the military and we moved to Maine to be close to family. My mother moved back to Korea.

My Father (Stanley) remarried again a couple years ago to a woman named Debbie Pooler. They reside happily in Maine.

My Uncle Rusty married a woman named Tina, who has a son named Greg. They also reside happily in Maine.

I am now 24 years old. I live in Maine, close to my remaining family. I got married in September of 2006 and changed my last name. It is now Marquis.

I would love to learn more about my family history if anyone has any information. Also, if I can help answer any questions please let me know. Thank you!
