  • Notes 

    • “My great great grandfather, Edgar Vietor Moffat was a homeopathic physician”

      I wish to make a minor correction in your data on my grandfather Edgar Vietor Moffat. I am the fortunate heir to the old farmhouse in which he and Edith resided during summer vacations and his all-too-brief retirement, and in which he died. The house is (and was at the time of his death) located in the town of Boothbay Harbor, not Boothbay and not Southport. These errors are copied from "A Moffat Family Record", written and privately published in 1982 by Abbot Low Moffat. The erronious assumption that Boothbay Harbor is part of Boothbay is a common one still. The use of Southport as the place of death results from the fact that my grandparents found it more convenient in summer to collect their mail by rowing the short distance to the Southport Island post office than to drive to Boothbay Harbor or Boothbay. My mother's generation who lived on in this house (which they called "The Anchorage") continued to use the Southport address for their mail, because they were fond of the Southport postmaster.
