I don't know if this is the correct place to post this, I have posted it also in the Book Bazaar, but if anyone can help me I would greatly appreciate it.

I am looking for a book titled "The Ancestry of Joseph Waterhouse of Standish, Maine" by Walter Goodwin Davis. My husband and I are doing geneology of our families, and Joseph Waterhouse is a direct descendant of mine.  In fact his father was a captain in the American Revolution.

If you have this book, know anything about it or have any suggestions about where I could find it I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Charlie;

Thanks so much!  I knew someone would have an idea where to go for this.  It is amazing to me that this book written years ago about this one man in little Poland, Maine is available somewhere!  I know this is going to be a real help to us in this geneology work we are doing.

If there is anything I can ever do for you, please don't hesitate to ask!

PBS people are the greatest!

Blessings;

Joy
