Tomorrow we leave Moosehead Lake (Greenville, ME) to begin our journey home. On Tuesday we traveled with Ruth’s mother to Kineo, where she told us about her experiences as a child living on the island each summer while her father worked as a guide (see Memories from Kineo). On Wednesday we visited the Moosehead Historical Society in Greenville. It has to be one of the best small town museums in America. It was also great to find some newspaper clippings about the Templeton family.
On Thursday I went to Augusta to visit the Maine State Archives and State Library, making some progress, along with developing some new questions about what happened to Emily Sears Templeton after her husband, John Frank Templeton, died. I will update this information when I get back home.
Today I visited cemeteries in Willimantic and Milo, both here in Piscataquis County. Found the grave markers I was looking for. It was a great, memorable week with lots of pictures to process and information to organize and ponder. It will be good, too, to get back to a warmer place.
