My grandmother, Gertrude Margaret Ladd was born, May 24th 1920, in Camden Maine.
Her parents were Albert Ladd and Arletta H. Beal of Jonesport, Maine. I would love to know who Arletta's parents and family were.

Many residents of northern Maine originated in the British Isles (England, Scotland or Ireland), emigrated to British North America (eastern Canada today), and crossed over to Maine. Your Beals may have been among them. Here is a note re one line:
William Beal was a boy of 6 years when he emigrated to Canada from Yorkshire, England, with his parents Thomas and Ann (Wilkinson) Beal, and his two brothers, George and John. Thomas and Ann were 37 years old, George twelve, and John two years old.
Their passage to America did not go without incident. They were passengers on the ship Trafalgar which sailed out of Hull, England, on May 31, 1817. It was a 3-masted square-sterned ship with two decks. On June 28th, the Hull Advertiser reported "The ship Trafalgar, Capt. Welburn, from this port to St. John's [Saint John], New Brunswick, and Quebec, passed through the Pentland Firth the 12th instant, passengers and crew in good health and spirits." Then on the 2nd of August, the New Brunswick Courier (Saint John) reported: "Shipwreck! On Friday evening last, about half-past eight o'clock, the ship Trafalgar, Capt. Welburn, went ashore on Briar Island in a very thick fog - the ship will be a total wreck...it had 159 passengers, which, together with crew, were all saved."
