One problem we genealogists may have today when searching out family members from days long past is now non-existent towns, renamed towns, even towns that have turned to lakes! Great Works, Maine does not exist anymore. It did not take me too long to find out where it was, because there is still a town there. Bradley, Penobscot Co., Maine is up the river from where I presently live in Bangor. There are 3 towns and a bridge between me and this town. I am eager to learn a little bit about this area to see what the big attraction was for George to relocate from Washington County, as it is not a short trip even today.
I found a site with an old map of Bradley Village or Great Works, Maine and thought I'd share it with you! Zoom in and out to find the right map.
