Return to Baker Island
Joseph Gilley's wife was Adeline Dolliver, not Manchester [as previously listed on this web site]. Adeline was the daughter of Peter (1798-1871) and Phoebe Jane (Smallidge) Dolliver (1798-1876) of Manset. Peter was the son of Peter and Margaret (Stanley) Dolliver. Margaret was the daughter of John and Marguerite (LaCroix Stanley.
Leona Hannah Gilley was the daughter of Samuel Bulger Gilley and his wife Harriet Elizabeth Mancheter. He was the son of Elisha and Hannah Manchester (Stanley) Gilley. Harriet was the daughter of Moses and Elizabeth W. (Burns) Manchester. Samuel Bulger Gilley married second, 30 Apr 1910, Nora Theresa Higgins, born in 1874, the daughter of Edmund and Katherine (Flynn) Higgins. Hannah Manchester Stanley, wife of Elisha, was the daughter of John and Phoebe (Rich) Stanley. Her brother, William, married Ruth Gott and moved to Swan's Island. William was the ancester of all the Stanleys at Swan's Island. Leona married Chester Sawyer, son of Joshua and Alberta (Hodgdon) Sawyer. They had at least four children, three, Donald Gilley Sawyer, Harriet Leona Sawyer, Berton Chester Sawyer born at Islesford and George R. Sawyer born at Bernard. Possibly there were two other children, Bradford and Kay but I am not sure. Harriet Leona died shortly before she was three years of age. She was burned in a tragic accident when a kettle of scalding water got upset.
I forgot to mention that there is now another grave on Baker Island. A short while ago Gordon Coulter buried his father's ashes in the cemetery and will have a stone for him next year. His father, Winfield Coulter, was the grandson of John S. and Harriet (Gilley) Coulter. Harriet was the daughter of Joseph and Adeline (Dolliver) Gilley. John and Harriet's son, Charles, first married Flora L. Stanley, daughter of Asa Doane and Maria Ellen (Spurling) Stanley and second Helen Garnor. Charles and Helen were the parents of Winfield. Harriet (Gilley) (Coulter) Taylor is buried at Mt. Height at SWH. After John Coulter died she married James A. Taylor.
