[p. 92]RECORD OF MARRIAGES SOLEMNIZED BY REV. W. B. ADAMSHon. John A. Morrill of Auburn, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of Maine, writes us as follows: "I enclose a copy of Rev. W. B. Adams' record of marriages. The original record is in my possession; I think that none of these marriages were recorded in the Town Clerk's offices; at least I have been unable to find any of them on the old Danville records.
"Rev. Weston B. Adams was the first pastor of the Congregational Church in Danville, near Lewiston Falls, now known as the High Street Congregational Church in Auburn. He was ordained Nov. 13, 1832 and dismissed Nov. 21, 1838[p. 93]at his own request, on account of ill health, with expressions of regret on the part of his people.
"It has occurred to me that this record of marriages should be made available in your Journal, if it is your policy to accept such material."Record of MarriagesJan. 23, 1834. Mr. Joseph D. Davis and Miss Orra Raynes. Both of Danville, Me.
