[For some individuals listed below, additional information may be found in these databases. When data from several sources conflicted, a decision was made to use the data from the more authoritative source.]

 

[Note that when the SSDI sometimes gave a place of “last residence”, this place was based on the zip code of the person’s mailing address. Thus it may not reflect the actual town in which they last lived. For instance, residents in the town Wesley, Maine may having a mailing address of “Star Route” or “H.C.R” (i.e., Home Carrier Route), “Machias, Maine [zip code]” ; the SSDI would state their last residence as Machias, even though they actually lived in Wesley.]

 

[For individuals who were mentioned in the diary only once or several times, in some cases the date on which they were mentioned may be stated.]

 

[This data, compiled with great care, may always need further updating.  It is possible that some individuals are misidentified or that other errors crept in. Please communicate suggested corrections to Stephen Robbins.  His mailing address (in 2012): 1660 West Lake Street, Warsaw, Indiana 46580-2494.]

(Roberts), 29 July 1916 in Maine (both of Northfield) ; he died 12 July 1963 in Northfield, Maine.  He lived in Northfield, Maine.

            The World War I Draft Registration Cards, 1917-1918 (an Ancestry.com database) shows that James Everett McLain [incorrectly indexed as Mcllain] was born 22 May 1881, was a "patrolman on highway" residing in Northfield, Maine, whose nearest relative was a James McLain of Northfield.

            The 1910 U.S. Census of Centerville, Maine shows this James McLain, Junior, (born about 1882 in Maine), was the son of a James McLain (born about 1851 in Canada) whose wife was Addie A. (born about 1864 in Maine) ; also in this household were stepsons Cecil L. Robbins (born about 1898 in Maine) and Ralph E. Robbins (born about 1901 in Maine).  But Addie could not have been the mother of James McLain, Junior:  other census, birth and marriage records show that James McLain [Senior] of Centerville married Addie A. [or H.] (Libby) (Robbins) of  Machiasport on 04 November 1909 ; she had previously been married to Allen W. Robbins and had other children by him.  So who was the mother of the James McLain, Junior born about 1882?

            Some have confused this James E. McLain with a James F. McLain.  The 1900 U.S. Census of Centerville, Maine (an Ancestry.com database) shows that James F. McLain was born November 1879 in Maine, son of James McLain (born May 1846 in Maine) and Mariah M. (          ) (born January 1854 in Maine) ; his siblings were Willie H. (born March 1882) and Florence S. (born May 1884).  Mariah was probaby not these children's mother, as records show that she married James McLain in 1896: James McLain of Centerville married Maria A. (Getchell) (Ravey) [i.e., McRavey?] of Northfield, 03 October 1896.  So who was the mother of the James F. McLain born in November 1879?
