Good morning Kathleen
As luck would have it I happened to be in the right place.
The John Harvell death was not reported in:
The Eastport Sentinel
The Machias Union (1853-first published to 1873)
Any NB newspapers 1850-1861
The Maine Farmer (Only William Harvell in 1851)
Robbinston was incorporated in 1811 so too early (incorporation is generally not useful for genealogy)
Robbinston was larger than it appears today (1000+ in 1850). Brewer is the only cemetery listed-any chance another cemetery was used? Red Beach?
You could contact local genealogy groups. Calais Library has a good collection of "stuff" (folders, etc.) they have been given. The library staff is super but unlikely to have the time to search but you might find someone who would do it.
Your best bet might be the Robbinston VRs-available from the LDS. It's possible the VRs were published but I don't think so.
I could do a little better if I were home but it's unlikely I could come up with anything solid. Give me a week or so if you think I can help.
