Account of all Deaths which have occurred from 1875 to 1900, both inclusive—Biographical Sketches—Additional Necrology, 1901-1913
Although for many years deaths were required to be reported to town and city clerks by assessors, parents, and householders, that duty has not been generally performed. By a law of 1891, and subsequent amendments, no burial was permitted, with certain exceptions, until a full record of death was filed. The following list is compiled from the city records and from newspapers. Unless otherwise stated, the place of residence and of death is Belfast; and where the name of a town or city alone is given, the State of Maine is to be understood. The date of death precedes the name of the deceased person, while the figures following directly after the name, indicate the age. The Index of Necrology will be found beginning on page 675.

[p. 389]
business relations, Mr. Carter was scrupulously just, and every obligation was met promptly and fully. There was rarely, if ever, a business so large carried on with so little flourish or display.
