Aroostook County Deeds and Probate - Help with Farleys

Not having much luck in finding death records of some of the earlier generations of Farleys who moved to Maine from New Brunswick in the mid 1800's. I haven't had a chance to get up to Houlton (about a 4-1/2 hour drive for me) to check deeds and probate.
Does anyone have the time to take an initial look at those records to see if any of the Farleys were in the records. Still trying to find out what happened to Ezekiel Farley after the 1850 census. He was probably a son of Samuel Farley & Abigail Tompkins, and can't find their deaths either. Samuel probably died between the 1870 and 1880 census. Perhaps in 1874, as that date of death is ascribed to Abigail, but she most likely died in the 1840's. Sally Farley, wife of Brynard Giggey, was most likely a sister and Violet Farley, wife of James Giggey was probably also a sister. Brynard & Sally probably died in the 1860's and James and Violet probably died in the 1850's.
I was reading recently that some of the soldiers from Maine in the Civil War died from tuberculosis and from diptheria that broke out in Aroostook County in 1861. Maybe that is why so many of them disappeared between those census years!
