Descendants of John Ames Buried in the Front Ridge Cemetery

John Ames and his wife Mary Eldredge settled in Orland Maine prior to 1845. There is no information to connect his ancestry with that of Phineas Ames, and this appears to be a separate Ames line of descent in the Bucksport, Maine area. The line of descent from John's father, also named John, is shown for completeness. Descendants that are buried in this cemetery are indicated by an "image size" link to a photograph of their grave, after their name in the descendancy report.

Descendants of Lewis M. Ames Buried in the Front Ridge Cemetery

Lewis Mcdonald Ames, his wife, daughter, and granddaughter are buried in the Front Ridge Cemetery, and are all listed on the same gravestone Image size is 38K. Although this grave is close to the graves of ancestors of John Ames, there is currently no indication that he is related to the John Ames line, (or the Phineas Ames line of Bucksport). He was originally from Vinalhaven, Maine, and descended from American immigrant Justus Eames, who was born April 29, 1627 in England. Here is what little is known about Lewis's descendancy:

      • Ora E. Soper, b. 1917; d. 1990; m. Arthur W. Murray.
