I analyzed five more packets of negatives from the Ethel Wight Studio Collection. See Part 11 – Curtis, Davis (2), Derosier, & Dexter.
- Mary Derosier (1914-1994)
- Donald Davis (1907-1972)
- Four children of Hartley A. & Mary T. Davis of Portland, Maine.
- Child of Max & Evelyn (Stein) Davis – Photo circa 1936
- Barbara, Ruth, & Walter Curtis and Stanley Dexter – c. 1935
Began researching my Blackhurst ancestors. (Montran-Barber-Blackhurst. Learned that my 4th great aunt, Mary Blackhurst immigrated to Deseret (Utah) in 1852. She and her sister, Lydia, both married William Haladay. Can’t tell yet if they were “sister wives” yet or serial wives. More research underway. I hope to write mini-bios for my 2nd great grandmother, Sarah Blackhurst, siblings.
Received some communications from a cousin of my wife. She transcribed the probate record for my wife’s fifth great grandfather, William Price. It will be interesting to see if the will provides any new information regarding that line — Howell-Hobbs-Long-Bryan-Price. I’ll be posting a “guest blog” about it in the coming days.

I posted a great article about early high schools in Scarborough by Linda McLoon. The first high school was actually two schools, one in Dunstan and one in Oak Hill in 1877. Read all about it in “A High School Comes to Scarborough.”
The Ancestor Hunt has added the Scarborough Historical Society photos to their listing of Maine Free Searchable Photo Collections. Scarborough images available through Digital Maine were already identified. There are dozens of links to other record locations in Maine. Check it out!
