I have just discovered a website that has over 370,000 older books scanned and online for free. There is a multi-volume set of books on the history of Maine and I'm sure many others that may be of interest.

www.archive.org

Or here is a link to a search for "Maine"

I just discovered this book in the archives mentioned in my previous post.

The Acadians of Madwaska, Maine (1902)

http://archive.org/details/acadiansofmadawa00colluoft

You can read it online in the original scanned format, or get it in a number of other formats including PDF and Kindle. I just downloaded it to my Kindle.

I expect there will be lots of interesting info in this book.

There are so many other books in these archives too.

Here is a chapter in a book about settlement in the St. John River valley. I scanned it quickly and it seems to be very general history without much mention of any names of individuals. Still there may be some info of value in it.
