  • Notes 
    • A Rev. Stephen Bamford was the minister who, in 1820, married Edwin's
      uncle Isaac and Catherine Kent.

      The following is taken from a "Town of Blain Centennial" booklet prepared in 1974:

      In 1884 Edwin Beals, a brother of William Beals, moved from Nova Scotia [Brookfield, Queens Co.] to Blain. With him he brought his wife, seven children and his father and mother, Isaac and Mary Beals. The journey from N.S. to Houlton [Maine] was made by train and from Houlton to Blain the women and children travelled by stagecoach, the men and household goods travelling by oxcart. Edwin Beals purchased the property now occupied by Roger Williams. On this property he, with the help of his brother, William, built a new house. About three months later the house was destroyed by fire. With courage and fortitude the two brothers built another house. From time to time additions and improvements were made to accomodate the family. Three more children were born to the Edwin Beals family making a total of ten children, only one of which is now [1974] living, Mrs. Mabel Crum, of Blaine. Edwin Beals was a stone mason by trade but he became a prosperous farmer and continued to operate his farm with the help of two of his sons, Lee and Lyle, until his death on December 24, 1912, at the age of 67. The Beals family was very active in civic affairs and were both instrumental in the building of Blaine Baptist Church. Many descendants are still living in the Town of Blaine.
