About a week ago, I published an article of Can You Help Genealogists Solve a Mystery in Dover, New Hampshire? at http://goo.gl/ucjlv. In the article, I described a ring found on a beach in Kittery, Maine. The ring apparently belonged to Charles C. Dixon and Maranda A. Lewis were married May 12, 1881. Genealogists were looking for descendants of the couple to return the ring to the family. Descendants have now been found.
Danny Hall, a genealogist from Salt Lake City, Utah, read about the recently-discovered ring and did the research. He helped track down three living descendants of Dixon and Lewis: Ken MacKinnon of Virginia Beach, Va.; Jean Marlow of East Bend, N.C.; and Robert MacKinnon on Sandown, N.H.
