RECORDS OF THE SOCIETY OF FRIENDS AT VASSALBOROUGH, ME.
Communicated by Hon. Henry Sewall Webster, A.M., of Gardiner, Me.
A Society of Friends, which still exists, was organized in Vassalborough, Me., in 1780. The History of Kennebec County, chapter xii, contains many interesting details of its early history. A house of worship was built in 1785-86, and the records of marriages commence soon after. As was customary, each certificate was recorded in full. The first certificate is here given at length in order to show the usual form; but of the later ones abstracts only are given, and the names of the witnesses have been omitted. Certificates were recorded, not as they were issued, but as they were presented to the clerk for that purpose; hence, as will be observed, they do not always appear in the order of their dates.
