Added 1/4/2000 Charles Randall - 1800 of Addison, Maine There appears to be two Randall lines both in Cutler and on Grand Manan. There was a Burnham Randall who married a Benson on the island which to my genealogical evidence is NOT related to Charles Randall. I have yet to make the connection but logically I find it very difficult to believe that there could be two unrelated Randall clans living in the same little town in Maine in the early to mid 1800's. Please contact me via my e-mail link above with any additions or corrections.

Added 9/19/99 Eathel Smith
- abt. 1795 of New Brunswick Eathel Smith m. Eunice Morse about 1814 at West
Isles, Charlotte Co.,New Brunswick. This marriage probably took place on Grand Manan
Islandwhich was not a Parish until 1816. Up until this time Grand Manan was part of the
West Isles Parish. Circumstantial evidence points to a James Smith as the father of both
Eathel and Elisha Smith, who both married daughters of John & Mary (Castle) Morse (
Eunice & Martha "Patty" Morse respectively. ) James Smith probably
came to Grand Manan with the Thomas Ross Movement from the Mt. Desert Region about the
year 1799. Although not been proven James Smith was probably of the Biddeford,Cumberland
Co, ME area before his removal to that area of Mt Desert that eventually became the
Trenton & Lamoine townships. In time I hope to establish the ancestry of James
Smith who died on Grand Manan in 1835.
