MAP OF OLD GERMAN CEMETERY by Fred Snell Follow this link to download a pdf copy of a map of the Old German Protestant Cemetery on Bremen Road. This map was in the possession of Lucille Walker and she gave it to someone to get copies made for our membership, but it got lost over the years. I happened to photograph it at one of our meetings several years ago and now, with the help of Photoshop, I have been able to merge and clean up the three photos into one document.

Please note that this map shows lot owners only and many other people may be buried on each lot. For example lot 8 is listed as Ephram White. On that lot is Ephram and his wife, Bertha, but also her parents, Gorham and Elizabeth (Creamer) Achorn. This is a large file, please be patient while it loads.

1776 MAP OF COAST OF MAINE This map shows the coast from Rockland Harbor to Pemaquid Point. It is located on the Library of Congress website and was produced in London in 1776. Following this link allows viewing and downloading of the map. The map clearly shows the coastal area around Waldoboro and shows structures present at that time.

This map, known as the Robinson Map, shows property lines that track with today's property lines as seen on Google Maps if you go to fairly high magnifaction. These pdf map files will open in new windows.
