Hi Peg-
I think your book suggestions will be very helpful when I get to a library. I live on an island off the coast of Maine and it is a good half hour to the nearest one.Sorry about your computer failure- yuck!
One name that strikes a bell in my memory is Ariel Welcome Foye- it is just a verbal memory from my grandmother Emma Foye who lived on the Kennebec River in Gardiner. I don't know why that name catches me-maybe Kenneth Foye who mentioned it can help me.
As far as the Jones connection- I am looking for info on my husband's grandfather( Frederick Jones,his father probably Thomas Jones) who disapeared from Manchester, Maine in the early 1900s. His grandmother Margaret Gormley( from Ireland) divorced him before 1918 and remarried under her maiden name- guess she was really ticked at him!Don't know if we have a Jones connection because I just don't have enough info- that requires a trip to the state archives in Augusta.
ALL I have on the early Foye gen. is what I listed in my orig. message. James, Hattie, Ernest, Elwood and Emma are all burried in the Randolph cemetery. Any connection to the names I listed would be appreciated.
