John, I found this online-The Island of Mount Desert register with the Cranberry Isles, 1909-1910. They did a census for Eden in 1909. They listed children even if they didn't live with them (they were considered non-residents but listed them because the parent still lived in the town). They also listed the wife's maiden name in parentheses. You can read it online the information is on page 132.

John P. Dunton
Lewis (non-resident)
Hattie A.-(non-resident)
Clara E. (Hurd)

There is a Walter H. Dunton listed below him with wife Adelma C. (Brown)
