Dedication & Thanks

BL Noyes & ARCHIVE.jpg

This entire cemetery project got its start with the late Dr. B. Lake Noyes.  Genealogy was a lifelong hobby for him and, since he brought many of us into this world, gathering of vital statistics was relatively easy.  In addition to the good Doctor, a number of other people over the years have contributed to the gathering of these cemetery listings.  Accordingly, we are dedicating these listings to the following:

Dr. B. Lake Noyes 
The listings would have been nearly impossible without his archaeological input.

Monty Small
While Janice, Connie and others did the ground work, it fell to Monty to take all of these records and assemble, record, and print them in a fashion that makes it easy for the researcher.

Connie Wiberg
Connie and Janice have trudged through every cemetery and burial plot on the Island, with repeated visits to many of them.  Connie is the “Kingpin” of this whole project, and we should all be thankful for the many hours that she has put into collecting and organizing these very valuable records.

Dorothy Carman 
Dot gathered more listings and started putting them in proper order, a lengthy endeavor.

Janice Olsen
Janice and Ted spent countless hours going through the many cemeteries, recording names and dates. 

Ted Nevells
Ted and Janice gathered much information on smaller burial lots located in obscure and remote wooded areas.

Ingrid Luke 
Ingrid hails from Clackamas, Oregon. She is related to the Rich family on Isle au Haut and has been a great source of help in providing information for Isle au Haut cemeteries as well as those on Deer Isle.

Janet Barter
Janet is from Trinidad-Tobago, off the coast of South America.  She is related to the Isle au Haut Barters and has provided much information on the Barter family line and for Isle au Haut cemeteries.

Jan McGrath
She hails from Goolagong, Australia, and is directly related to the Holden family of Deer Isle.  Jan has been very helpful in filling in details of that family.

Charlie Childes
Charlie hails from Camden, ME, but now lives in Citrus Springs, FL.  His roots  are with Childes, Small, Dunbar and others.  He has been very helpful in providing information for Deer Isle and Merchant’s Island cemeteries.

Charles Turner 
Charlie lives in Amherst, New Hampshire, and has direct lines to the Isle au Haut Turner family.  Charles has  provided us with cemetery listings and maps for locating them on Isle au Haut.

Steve Joyce 
Steve has been a big help in spotting errors/omissions and providing missing dates. Steve is directly involved with the Swan’s Island Historical Society and is a relative of Dr. Herman Small, from Sunset, who developed genealogical data on Deer Isle and Swan’s Island.  Dr. Small shared much information with Dr. Noyes.

All the “Others”
A big “thank you” to all of the many others who provided missing names, dates, and other pertinent information regarding a relative or acquaintance. It’s amazing how the provision of one piece of information can solve a whole series of problems.
