Hi cousin Jim; As you know my maternal,grt x 4 granfather James Freeman Fly b.3-26-1775 @ Parsonfield,ME d.2-28-1856 @ Hiram )xford ME m.Eunice Clemons 10-10-1777 @ Danvers Essex MA James was a carpenter and also known as the "Elder" He was the founder and Preacher of the "Free Spirit Baptist Church" I know his grandaughter married into the Durgins and they were Baptist. When my granmother,Alice and her brothers settled in Boston,MA;almost all of them married Irish Catholics and the families (including mine) became Catholic. So what is a Free-Spirit Baptist.I can find information about the Baptist's but not Free Spirit Can you help me or can anyone? Thanks in advance. Margaret P.S. things are settling down here in the Boston area,the planes are flying again,though not full. The harbor is being patrolled by the U.S.Coast Guard arond the clock. No LNG tankers are allowed to come in and unload at the present and there is a lot of concern about the large LNG facility in Everett,about seven miles away. I guess all we can do is pray. M.
