Re: Bertram Packard of Maine

Thanks for the dates, sometimes surprisingly elusive!

Bertram Packard’s parents were Edward Toby Packard and Adelaide Lois Lapham, who lived in Litchfield, Maine. According to his sister Pearl Germaine Packard– my grandmother– “Addie” was a family nickname.

Pearl Germaine Packard (1886-1987) married Elmer Fremont Campbell (1866-1938) of West Bath, Maine. They had two daughters: my mother Adelaide Beulah, (1908-1987) who married Earl Hutchinson (1905-1983) of Lynn, Mass., and Doris (1910-1995), who married Donald B. Wilson of Bath. Earl Hutchinson was a teacher, high school principal, and Director of Secondary Education in Maine before serving 12 years as director of Southern Maine Vocational-Technical Institute in South Portland. His career included service in the newly-established U. S. Office of Education in Washington; he helped reorganize teacher education in post-war Japan, and was an educational attache in Thailand during President Truman’s “Point IV” program.

Edward and Adelaide Packard had a second daughter, Mary Eliza Packard, born 1878. She died (date not known) at the Maine State Hospital in Augusta.

Pearl (Packard) Campbell lived to be just two weeks short of 101. She met Elmer Campbell, who was 20 years older, when she lived at his parents’ house on Campbell’s Pond in West Bath while teaching school there. During WWII, she ran a small boarding house in Bath, Maine and prepared both lunches and evening meals for numerous workers at Bath Iron Works. At age 75 she set up and ran a school lunch program for the City of Bath.

Her husband Elmer Campbell was a master carpenter and sometime cabinet maker. He was employed by Bath Iron Works during construction of J. P. Morgan’s famed yacht “Corsair IV”, and is supposed to have done the interior finish work on that vessel.

Continuing genealogical research (and some confusion) with Maine Packard lineage deals with Edward Toby Packard’s parents: Marlboro Packard, Jr. (1803-1885) of Union, Maine and Mary Ann Martin (1808-1888). Marlboro’s father Marlborough (1753-1846) supposed to have married Nancy Ann Blackinton (1771-1858) but without confirmation of line back to Pentecost Blackinton of Marblehead, Mass.

Marlboro Packard’s wife Mary Ann Martin is supposed to be daughter of Adam Martin of Broad Bay (Waldoboro), Maine but dates and name of wife unknown. Adam Martin’s father is supposed to be Johann (John) Martin b. 1736, m. “Anna”; his grandfather supposed to be Johannes Jost Martin born about 1775 in Prussia, m. Anna Marie Holler and was a settler in Waldoboro’s German immigrant community.

Anyone interested in any of these names or details invited to correspond directly with me.
