Norris brown farm caribou,me

Set the location.

This is likely the oldest remaining home in Caribou. Ivory Hardison settled on this spot in 1842, as one of Caribou's first settlers. He built a log home, which was soon replaced by this house. This house is famous for the huge elm tree growing up through the porch. The top half of the tree was cut down a few years ago. All of these buildings remain. The house is privately owned and occupied.

this farm is north of the farm I grew up on, Jacobs Farm @ 1270 Presque Isle Rd, Caribou, ME

Norris Brown was good friends with my grandfather, Dell Jacobs. My father in-law, Clarence J Dubay also worked for Norris for a while.

Ivory was my GGGG Grandfather. I'm having a hard time finding this house. Going on a ME trip next month and would like to at least swing by. What's the street location?

Hi Steve, my daughter is named Ivory after our mutual GGG grandfather and my great-grandfather. I live in Portland Maine. Hope to make the trip one day. Did you see inside the house on your visit? I've hit dead ends with every descendant I've reached out to....my parents and grandparents were at the reunion in 1999

Hello Jannette. We drove up around the driveway to look at the house. It was getting dark and decided not to bother anyone. Actually the place looked very rough from the outside. Not sure who, if anyone, was actually living there. We didn't go back. You can't miss the place on the left driving north to Caribou, before the cemetery. At the cemetery, Ivory's grave obelisk has been cleaned recently and looks great, but my GGG Oliver's obelisk was almost falling over. We had the cemetery pour a new base and reset it. Oliver followed his oil drilling uncles to Pennsylvania, then California, which explains how we got here. I Would love to hear about your branch of the family. I have much to share about ours.

Jannette, we were at the California reunion. Not sure what year that was! I have a large listing of Hardison descendants from the meeting I can get you a link too. We have been working on Ancestry and Wikitree for several years and making progress. I have several Hardison photos you may be interested in-- depending on your branch. I am interested in ALL Hardison photos for the Maine Hardison Wikitree. Contact me on FB- www.facebook.com/sdhardison (assuming you have an account.)
