Welcome to Pine Trees and Pedigrees!

Pine Trees and Pedigrees is about my genealogical exploration of my family: primarily in Maine, but also in New Hampshire, Vermont, Prince Edward Island, and Quebec.

My major family lines (the four grandparents) include:
  • Kirk (originally Kirkpatrick), in what is now Knox County, Maine
  • Hodsdon (or Hodgdon), in Oxford County, Maine
  • Murphy, immigrants from Prince Edward Island, Canada, to Coos County, New Hampshire
  • Rabideau (originally Robidas or Rabida), immigrants from Quebec, Canada, to Coos County, New Hampshire
Stepping back a generation to my great-grandparents, I also follow the additional lines:
  • Sukeforth (originally Suchfort), in what are now Knox, Lincoln, and Waldo Counties, Maine
  • Rand, in Oxford County, Maine
  • McIntyre, on Prince Edward Island, Canada
  • Woodward, in Vermont and in Coos County, New Hampshire
Come along as I search out my pedigrees among the pines!

Gravestone of my great-great-grandfather Jabez Bradbury Kirk, Newcomb Cemetery, Warren, Maine
