REVOLUTIONARY SOLDIERS OF YORK COUNTY, MAINE

Communicated by George Walter Chamberlain, M.S., of Malden, Mass.
Forty-five years after the beginning of the American Revolution there were 249 persons living in York County who appeared before Benjamin Greene of South Berwick, Chief Justice of the Court of Common Pleas for the first eastern circuit of Maine, to present their claims for pensions from the United States Government. The sessions of Court were held at York on July 4 and 5, 1820, and at Alfred on July 18, 19, and 20 following.

Each applicant for pension was required to make an affidavit of his services and present conditions for record in the Court and to be transmitted to the office of the Secretary of War. These affidavits in York County were arranged alphabetically and recorded in the Common Pleas Records, vol. 38, pp. 254-506, by Daniel Sewall, clerk.

Somewhat over fifty of the applications were reversed at this session, and later many of these persons and about twenty others presented their claims more fully than had been done in 1820. The later affidavits give much military information concerning the soldier as well as interesting facts about each family, and are recorded in several volumes of the court records (vide infra).

It must be remembered that, in 1820, Berwick included the present towns of Berwick and North Berwick; Shapleigh, the present towns of Shapleigh and Acton; Hollis, the present towns of Hollis and Dayton; Saco, the present city of Saco and the town of Old Orchard; while the town of Arundel has been changed to Kennebunkport.

The families herein given include only those living with each applicant at the date of his application.
