Carlie,

I am sorry, but I have no idea if any of these family names are Indian. I have noticed that many of my same family names occur in Old Town as part of the Indian families that lived there...so I have no idea how you determine if a particular name is Indian. I am descended from a Charles McLaughlin (from Old Town) and although my ancestor was not Indian, there were Charles McLaughlin's later in Maine that were.

Try to look through the later census records, maybe they note whether of not a family is Indian...or if they don't, where they lived in Old Town may be a clue, as I know there is still an Indian reservation there.
