EmailApr 25, 2022Hi Charlie,
At long last I have the enclosed CD for you. I hope this will allow you to look at what I have done. While I don't want you to be too hard on me, do let me know what you think. This is the first time I have ever written something like this.. But as you will see, I have leaned on many other researchers. At times while working at the Maine Maritime Museum research library, there were others doing their own research. They would run across nuggets about my family and pass the word along. Often time it was stuff that I would never have found.
I eventually was given free rein to go into their archives and dig around as I saw fit. Good stuff was found. A short while ago I decided 1 had reached the end of the line regarding the manuscript and began as a volunteer. Now due to health problems, I have had to shut down everything. The only addition I have made since stopping was to add the date of my brother John‘s death.
So. you now you got the only finished product about the Houghton family of Bath, Maine ever written who built many ships and were very prominent at that time. The only male line left to carry on the name is my grand son who is thirty. All the rest are the daughters of my brother John. Maybe this is just as well. My health is declining and I am fighting the inevitable. I have enjoyed our give and take. Just let me know what you think. Thanks for sharing your research and history. It’s been fun.
