Starting Sept. 5, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
The Sherwood connection jumped out at me in your post, but I'm not sure it's the same family. James and Jane (Sherwood) McCready are the parents of Caleb J. McCready, born in Hampton. N.B. 2/19/1844. Caleb and his wife, Catherine Jane Jewett had three sons born in Bloomfield. N.D.: Cyrus David (b. 3/3/1878), Holton V. (my GGrandfather, b. 3/25/1880), and James Arthur (b. 10/11/1885). Holton married Lois Estabrook and they had 8 children including my grandfather, Claire E. McCready, born in Houlton, Maine. I have more if anyone is interested in this particular line! As an aside, Catherine Jane Jewett is a distant cousin to the author Sarah Orne Jewett and I have that branch of the family tree, too. /Susan Blake
