Civil War Stories: HIGGINS Family of Eden, ME

The date of the Pejepscot Chapter's April meeting has changed due to Easter falling on the second Sunday of the month. The April program will be held on Sunday, April 15th at 2pm in the Morell Meeting Room at the Curtis Memorial Library in Brunswick. In commemoration of the sesquicentennial of the Civil War PGS President, Brian Bouchard, will share one of his family's Civil War stories. His HIGGINS family of Mount Desert Island sent 3 of their boys to war during the conflict. Learn about their lives leading up to, during and after the Civil War and get a glimpse into what one Maine family was going through during this turbulent time in America's history. Following President Bouchard's talk, other members will be invited to share information about their ancestor's service stories with the group. Join us for a fun afternoon of sharing and genealogy talk (and snacks too!) Sunday, April 15th at 2pm in the Morrell Meeting Room in Brunswick's Curtis Memorial Library.
