Background

Andy and "Dot" McSorley were both schoolteachers in Maine.  They had no children.

They owned property on the back shore of GCI, but there was no road access to it.  They arranged rights-of-way and built "I-95."  Their tiny cabin was at the end of what they called "Lazy Lane," the first road branching to the right off of I-95, and leading to the back shore near Great Head.  Emily Roberts built her house on the site of the cabin

A small report with color pictures, The Construction of Road "I-95" on Great Cranberry Island, Maine, So Nicknamed by the Islanders, by Dot McSorley, is available for sale from the Historical Society.

The McSorleys also owned a lot on GCI extending from Preble Cove to the Main Road, which they sold to Bruce Komusin around 1988.
