bullet  General Notes:

Leslie Ann told Don Appleby that Walden and Elizabeth Hodgkins lived with Osmer and Mildred Remington when Bill Mandel (Leslie Ann's older brother) was about 3 or 4 years old (in about 1933 or 1934).

Jackie's letter shows the names, Walden Hodgkins and Elizabeth as the parents of Isabel who married Charles Floyd and John Davis.

In Dene's account, "Great-great-grandpa Walden left school when he was 8 and for a while made money selling seashells. Later he became a lighthouse keeper and when he moved to Ontario he assumed the title Captain and loved to tell tales of being a sea captain."

bullet  Marriage Notes:

Trenton, Oct. 31, by Rev. J. W. Savage, WALDEN B. HODGKINS of Hancock to Miss LIZZIE M. SUMNER of Gouldsboro.

It was a civil marriage so no parish was given.

"Walden B. Hodgkins the son of William,, was born in Hancock, 22 Jan 1847, who married in Winter Harbor, Maine in Oct 1868 to Lizzie Sumner." from Eben Hodgkins. Winter Harbor also appears as the place in other sources, as does Trenton.
