    I was born in Easton, Maine in 1933 to Burrill and Marion Hersom and attended the Easton High School.

    • Roberta Williams says:

      I would like to correspond. I have/had family members who lived in Easton that you might have known. My family is from Westfield-I descend from Robert Fulton through his daughter Abigail and John Bartley. But the family members I was referring to are from another line of old “County” early settlers.

Havelock is my Gr grandfather- Im a Bartley and live in Lincoln Maine. Cousin Rodney still lives in the Shadow of Mars Hill and does the Fulton side of the Family. My Gram Bartley-a Westfield Chase- married to eldest son[ Henry Ear]l of Hav & Ethel, did our Bartley line.She started training me for her job early. I live in Lincoln ME now.

  9. Bertie Williams says:

    Is there anyone out there who has done the Fulton line in Canada/Nova Scotia to the emigrant? Rumor is going around that our emigrant ancestor in Pictou NS was/is the Grandson of the famous farmer of 1698/9 “Londonderry Seige” named James. The surname Fulton was given [In Northern Ireland surnames were not used for common men in 1600s] to the family because he was the only farmer; of many; contracted to provide supplies each night, that actually delivered a full ton of supplies to the town- each time- during the seige. Other suppliers sold short weight loads.
