RECORDS OF DOVER, PISCATAQUIS COUNTY, FORMERLY NO. 3 in RANGE 6.
COMMUNICATED BY JOHN F. SPRAGUE, ESQ., OF MONSON.

Thomas Davee was Town Clerk of Dover for 1823 and for several years afterwards. He moved to Blanchard, then Somerset County, 1832. He was an active man of affairs and was member of Congress while a resident of Blanchard in 1837 and 39. Undoubtedly he was a farmer with his other avocations, for among the sheep marks in these records appear the following:

"Thomas Davee, mark of sheep—a square crop off of each ear and a hole in each ear. Rec. and recorded Mar. 7, 1828. Thomas Davee, Clerk."
