1804 I.O.U. Document signed at Gorham, Maine; Joseph Nason; Samuel Estes; George Murch


Handwritten Gorham, Maine, document dated November 3, 1804 where Samuel Estes promised to pay Joseph Nason fifteen dollars within six months with interest.  The transaction was witnessed by George Murch.  The document mentions Gorham and Windham at the bottom.


Transcript:

Gorham, November 3, 1804
For value Received I promise to pay Joseph Nason or order fifteen Dollars Within Six months from the above Date with interest till paid.
As Witness my hand, Samuel Estes
Attest, George Murch

Joseph Nason was presumably the Joseph Nason who was born January 30, 1783, son of Uriah  and Abigail (Knight) Nason.  Joseph married Elizabeth Waterhouse; they had four daughters: Almira, Mehitable, Abigail and Dorcas.  Joseph died April 8, 1860.

I'm not sure which Samuel Estes it was who signed this document.  There was a Samuel Estes who died at Windham, Maine, on May 22, 1817, according to a transcription of cemetery records at the Windham, Maine, Historical Society, though most online trees note that he died in 1818, so I'm not sure if one or the other was a transcription error.  This Samuel Estes was born 8 December 1751 at Berwick, Maine, son of Henry and Mary (Varney) Estes.  He married Eunice Cobb; they had a large family.

George Murch may have been the George Albert Murch who was born 8 February 1767 at Gorham,  Maine, son of John and Anna (Dean) Murch.  That George married Hannah Roberts on January 1, 1791 at Gorham, Maine.

1805 I.O.U. from John Deering to W. Zenas Pratt; Portland, Maine


December 31, 1805 Portland, Maine, document where John  Deering promised to pay W. Zenas Pratt $450.00 on the first day of July, 1806.

The reverse of the document shows an 1809 receipt for $125.00.  Whether this is part of the earlier transaction, or a convenient reuse of paper, I don't know.

The Deering family in Maine was a prominent one.  I'm not sure which John this was.

Zenas Pratt may have been the Zenas Pratt who was born at Weymouth, Massachusetts, son of Samuel and Alithea (Cushing) Pratt, and later moved to the Portland, Maine, area, perhaps at Cape Elizabeth, Maine.

If you have information on John Deering or W. Zenas Pratt, please leave a comment.  Thanks!

1850 Letter from Lorenzo Leadbetter at Old Town, Maine, to Asa Smith at Mattawamkeag, Maine


July 19, 1853 letter sent by Lorenzo Leadbetter at Old Town, Maine, to Asa Smith, Esquire, at Mattawamkeag, Maine.  The letter concerns pork and flour that Leadbetter has for sale.


Transcript:

Old Town, July 19/53

Mr. Smith, Dear Sir
I have got 1 Bbl of very nice pork of Lowes packing and 1 Bbl flower at the Five Islands Store [or Stone] House that I should like to have you dispose of.  Please write me whether you will or Not and Much obliged.  Yours,
L. Leadbetter

There's a biography, shown below, of Lorenzo Leadbetter in "American Lumbermen: the Personal History and Public and Business Achievements of One Hundred Eminent Lumbermen of the United States", Third Series, published in 1906.

Lorenzo Leadbetter was born at Leeds, Maine, on March 8, 1809, the son of Samuel and Betsey (Parcher) Leadbetter.  As a young man, he moved with his brother Horace to the Old Town, Maine, area, to make his fortune.  He married Mary Ann Shaw at Old Town, Maine, in 1835.  They had two children, Laura Leadbetter and Alvah Leadbetter, who died before their time.  Mary Ann (Shaw) Leadbetter died in 1850.  A few years later, Lorenzo moved to Michigan to pursue the lumbering trade.

Lorenzo married Rebecca H. Robinson at Detroit, Michigan, in 1858.  They had children Herbert Leadbetter and Helene Leadbetter.  As the biography indicates, Lorenzo Leadbetter became an important citizen of Michigan before falling ill in 1865 and dying, just as his efforts were beginning to bear fruit.  Litigation between his heirs further reduced his legacy.




Asa Smith was associated with the hotel in Mattawamkeag and was a merchant and civic leader.  From "The History of Penobscot County, Maine, with Illustrations and Biographical Sketches", published in 1882

The biography, shown below, indicates that Asa Smith was born August 12, 1798, at Danville, Maine, son of Pelatiah Smith.  In December 1821, young Asa ventured north to Penobscot County, working first at Passadumkeag, Maine, where he met his wife, Louisa (Haynes) Smith.  They married February 19, 1826.  Eventually they moved up the Penobscot River, beyond the roads, to Haynesville, before buying the log house which served as a hotel at Mattawamkeag, Maine.  He stayed at Mattawamkeag for the rest of his life and was involved in trade and farming and once served in the Maine Legislature.  He and Louisa had six children:

  1. Hannah E. Smith, who married H.S. Wing
  2. Elbridge G. H. Smith
  3. George W. Smith
  4. Charles A. Smith
  5. Louisa Smith
  6. Asa H. Smith

Asa Smith died on December 16, 1880.

1804 I.O.U. of Samuel Elkins to Jonathan Varney $35; witness, Ephraim Hodsdon - Windham, Maine


August 17, 1804 document where Samuel Elkins promises to pay Jonathan Varney $35.  The agreement was witnessed by Ephraim Hodsdon.

The document was signed at Windham, with no state written, but I believe it was signed at Windham, Maine, as there were men of those three names living in the area during that era.  Whether or not they are the same men, Samuel Elkins, a yeoman from Raymond, and Ephraim Hodsdon are mentioned in the Moses Little Papers and Court Records, 1817-1843, held by the Windham Historical Society, Windham, Maine.  Raymond, Maine, abuts Windham.


Transcript:

Windham August 17, 1804.  For Value Received of promise to pay Jonathan Varney or his order the sum of thirty five Dollars by the first day of January with Interest as witness my Hand.
Attest: Ephraim Hodsdon                                                                                  Samuel Elkins

If you have a different take on the Windham where this document originated, please leave a comment or contact me directly.  Thanks!

1880s Autograph Album of Minnie M. Beard, a student at Otterbein University in Ohio


1880s autograph album that belonged to Minnie M. Beard, a student at Otterbein University at Westerville, Ohio.


As if this album wasn't interesting enough, it's even more interesting because Minnie penned notes about the signers.  One such page was that signed by William C. Wickham, who was the president of the Class of 1883 at Otterbein University.  Sadly, Minnie noted that he was one of the over 2200 victims of the Johnstown Flood of May 31, 1889 in Pennsylvania.


The album is approximately 4-1/4" x 3" and contains the sentiments of nearly 80 of Minnie's relatives, friends and schoolmates.  An alphabetical list of the signers appears at the end of this post.


From online research, hopefully correct:  [corrections and additions welcome!]

Minnie's 1942 obituary in the St. Petersburg Times of St. Petersburg, Florida, indicates that she was a graduate of Otterbein University Conservatory of Music and that she died at the home of her brother, Alvin G. Beard.  I had searched for Minnie Kincaid because a 1901 Otterbein University publication mentioned her as an 1885 graduate of the Conservatory of Music there and that her surname was then Kincaid.


Assuming Minnie was the full sister of Alvin Glossbrenner Beard, her parents were Jacob Beard, Jr., and Permelia (Gaskill) Beard.  Minnie was born about February 1866; several online trees list children only up to Laura, born about 1864.

On 29 April 1896 at Hendricks, Indiana, Minnie M. Beard married bookkeeper Wendell T. Kincaid, son of Thomas and Sarah Kincaid of Dayton, Ohio.  Minnie and Wendell lived at Indianapolis, Indiana; Charleston, West Virginia and, finally, St. Petersburg, Florida.  They raised at least four children.

If you have corrections and/or additions to the information above, or information on any of the signers mentioned below, please leave a comment or contact me directly.

Minnie pasted some newspaper clippings on the back end paper and inside back cover.  [Click to enlarge.]


Two people in the album indicated a cousin relationship with Minnie.  One was Maimee C. Shunk [not sure of given name or surname], who signed a page on June 21, 1882.


The other cousin was possibly Nell E. Crissman or Well E. Crissman, or perhaps Crissman was not a surname but rather a town in Pennsylvania.  If you can clear up this confusion, please leave a comment.

1878/1880s Autograph Album of Lizzie E. Pearsall of Bainbridge, New York


1878/1880s autograph album of Lizzie E. Pearsall of Bainbridge, New York.  The album was presented to Lizzie by her teacher M. E. Davis in 1878.


The album is approximately 4-1/4" x 2-3/4" and contains the sentiments of 75 of Lizzie's relatives, friends and teachers.  An alphabetical list of the signers appears at the end of this post.


From online research, hopefully correct:  [corrections and additions welcome!]

Lizzie E. Pearsall was born 26 May 1867 at Bainbridge, New York, the daughter of Bainbridge natives Sherman and Lydia Maria (Minor) Pearsall.   On 31 October 1883 Lizzie married dentist Clellan Locke Card, son of Nelson Delos Card and Josephine Maria (Locke) Card of Bainbridge, New York.  Dr. Card graduated from Pennsylvania Dental College on 25 February 1887.


Sadly, Lizzie died at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on 30 January 1892, at the age of 24; according to her death certificate, she's buried at Bainbridge, New York.  I don't believe she had any children, or at least children that lived.

Clellan later married Alice E. Reen on 29 September 1897; they had three children, two of whom lived to adulthood.

Lizzie's Aunt Hettie signed a page.  I believe she was Henrietta Minor, "Hettie", half sister of Lizzie's mother Lydia Maria (Minor) Pearsall; their shared parent was George Minor.  Hettie would marry William Leroy Laman in 1899.


Two other people mentioned a family relationship with Lizzie.  One was C. S. Minor of Deposit, New York, who was, I believe, Clinton S. Minor, son of Albert Philo Minor, full brother of Lizzie's mother's Lydia Maria Minor.


The other was Lizzie's cousin Daisy S. Pearsall, who signed a page at Bainbridge Academy, Bainbridge, New York, on October 9, 1879.
