  • Notes 
    • From Gail Reynolds: Ferdinand Merrill Corliss lived in Yarmouth, Maine. He was a poultry raiser and boardinghouse keeper. Patricia F. Corliss remembers her great grandfather: "My great grandfather was injured in a mill accident as a young man (16) and lost an arm. He had a hook which fascinated me. It seemed he could do just about anything anyone else could do. He was an accomplished photographer and played the drums in a marching band for fifty years. My great grandmother was short and we called her little grammie. They raised my father.
