Bible of Mount Desert, Maine, Native Rev. Hosea Kittredge and Wives Nancy (Fisher) and Mary Blake (Daggett) & Descendants


Comprehensive Commentary on the Holy Bible that belonged to Rev. Hosea Kittredge, a native of Mount Desert, Maine, and his wives Nancy (Fisher) Kittredge and Mary Blake (Daggett) Kittredge and their descendants.  The Bible contains three pages of Family Records in the back.

The images shown below are not true to color; the pages have more of a light peach tone.


On the first non-marbleized end paper, below:


The Bible measures approximately 10-3/4" by 7-1/4" by 2-1/2" and was published by Brattleboro Typographic Company of Brattleboro, Vermont, in 1837.  Tucked in the Bible:
  • invoice dated May 21, 1856 at Red Creek, New York, with religious notes on the reverse
  • legal sized paper with a listing of what appears to be towns or surnames and more religious notes
  • paper scrap that looks as though it might have served as an address pane, addressed to Rev. Hosea Kittredge, Mason, Michigan.
If you have corrections to the information below or information to share on the Kittredge, Fisher, Daggett and Clark families, please leave a comment or contact me directly.

1877-1891 Autograph Album from the Brownfield, Maine; and Bridgton, Maine, Area; 11 Calling/Business Cards Tucked In


Autograph album with inscriptions from 1877 to 1891 of people mostly from Brownfield, Maine; it contains ten calling cards, one business card and 3 book plates.

The owner isn't identified, though two inscribers, A. C. Morrison and his wife Mary L. Morrison of Brownfield, Maine, described themselves as the owner's step parents.  The only inscriptions beyond 1879 were inscribed in 1881 by L. A. Cole and in 1891 by Wessie Cole, who were, I believe, Llewellyn A. Cole and his son Eugene Weston Cole.  I'm wondering if the owner might have been related to Llewellyn.


Inscriptions from:
  • Massachusetts:  Boston; Charlestown; West Roxbury; Winchester
  • Cohoes, New York
  • Bridgton, Maine
  • Brownfield, Maine
  • Denmark, Maine
  • Rumford, Maine

The album measures approximately 4" by 2-3/4" and contains 29 inscriptions and 11 calling cards, as well as the notice, shown below, of the death from scarlet fever of Frankie C. Dresser, son of Clayton D. and Miranda F. Dresser, at the age of 2 years and 8 months.


An alphabetical list of the inscribers appears at the end of this post.

Bible of Benjamin Benson, Jr., and wives Almira (Heath); Jessey (Graham) and Clara J. (Moulton) of Tremont, Maine


Bible that belonged to the family of Benjamin Benson, Jr., and wives Almira (Heath) Benson; Jessey (Graham) Benson [or Jessie, Jessy]; and Clara J. (Moulton) Benson of Tremont, Maine.

The Bible, published in 1844 by Jesper Harding of 57 South Third Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, measures approximately 11-1/4" by 8-1/2" by 2-1/4" and contains two pages of Family Records, including Marriages, Births and Deaths.   From a quick riffle, it appears that there are no mementos inside, other than three obituaries pasted on the inside front cover.



The inside cover features three obituaries, shown below.


Obituary of Mrs. Almira (Heath) Benson, first wife of Benjamin Benson, Jr.

Obituary of Capt. Benjamin Benson, Jr.

Obituary of Mrs. Jessey (Graham) Benson, second wife of Benjamin Benson, Jr.

The two pages of Family Records have entries for Benjamin Benson, Jr., his first two wives Almira (Heath) Benson and Jessey (Graham) Benson and children of those two wives, as well as a marriage record for Benjamin's third wife Clara J. (Moulton) Benson.  


Marriages, listed on the left side of the page:
  • Benjamin Benson Jr - Miss Almira Health - September 19, 1822
  • Benjamin Benson Jr - Miss Jessy Graham September 19, 1855
  • Benjamin Benson to Miss Clara J. Moulton - April 19, 1871
  • Son of Benjamin and Jessy: James B. Benson To Eva M. Lawson in Rockland, Maine, October 20, 1880


Births, listed on the right side of the page [additional births on another page, farther below]
  • Benjamin Benson Jr., July 18, 1801
  • Almira (Heath) Benson, September 6, 1801
Children of Benjamin Benson, Jr., and Almira (Heath) Benson, shown on the first page of Births in two enlargements
  • Harriet M [Maria ?] N. Benson, January 21, 1823  [N. for Norwood ?]
  • Eliza Ann Benson, September 15, 1824
  • Benjamin B. Benson, April 13, 1826
  • William H. Benson, December 17, 1828
  • John Q. A. Benson [supposedly John Quincy Adams Benson], July 19, 1830
  • Henry C. Benson, October 27, 1832 [though his first name looks like "Honey", he was Henry Clay Benson]


Continued, Children of Benjamin Benson, Jr., and Almira (Heath) Benson
  • Hannah H. Benson, May 15, 1836
  • Julia A. Benson, October 27, 1837
  • Samuel P. Benson, October 10, 1839
  • Mary E. Benson, August 16, 1845  [given name looks like "Money"]
Children of Benjamin Benson, Jr., and Jessey (Graham) Benson
  • James B. Benson, February 26, 1856
  • Lyman N. Benson, October 11, 1857
  • Daniel G. Benson, December 14, 1859


 Second Family Records Page listing Births in the left column and Deaths in the right column:


Births:

Jessy (Graham) Benson, second wife of Benjamin Benson, Jr., June 24, 1822

More Children of Benjamin Benson, Jr., and Jessey (Graham) Benson
  • Eliza A. Benson, January 28, 1862
  • Jessy Benson, Adopted, April 14, 1865 - this might be the adoption date rather than a birth date, but Jessie is a 5 year old in the 1870 Census, so a birth year of about 1865 would fit. I wonder if Jessy was the J. L. H. Benson born May 7, 1864 at Tremont, Maine.  Interestingly, Benjamin Benson, Jr.'s obituary, farther above, notes ..."and the fatherless, were never turned from his door". Whether a coincidence or not, Albert Jefferson Carver, son of Wills Carver and Sally (Hopkins) Carver was born at Tremont, Maine, on May 7, 1864.
Clara J. (Moulton) Benson, third wife of Benjamin Benson, Jr., July 28, 1843


Deaths on the upper half of the page:
  • Almira Benson, March 12, 1850
  • Eliza Ann (Benson) Thurston [wife of James Thurston], October 10, 1857
  • Eliza A. Benson, May 1, 1865
  • Jessy Benson, September 18, 1870 "at 11 oclock night"
  • Samuel P. Benson [middle initial doesn't look much like a P, but P. is on his gravestone], September 8, 1875
  • Benjamin Benson, Jr., September 23, 1875
  • William H. Benson, October 14, 1877


Deaths on the lower half of the page
  • Henry C. Benson, August 30, 1879
  • Lyman N. Benson, August 22, 1887  [third digit hard to read; might not be 8]
  • Julia A. Benson, June 10, 1910
  • Hannah H. Benson, July 30, 1912
  • Mary E. Benson, November 2, 1915
  • John Q. A. Benson, March 5, 1917
  • James B. Benson, January 20, 1926
  • Daniel G. Benson, May 6, 1931


If you have information to share on any of the people mentioned above, please leave a comment or contact me directly.  I'd especially like to learn more about Jessy Benson, the adopted daughter of Benjamin Benson, Jr., and Jessey (Graham) Benson.

Bible of the Leighton, Fish, Little, King and Related Families of Midcoast Maine


Bible that belonged to the Leighton, Fish, Little, King and related families of Midcoast Maine.  Surnames include:
  • Blackman
  • Boynton
  • Coombs
  • Fish
  • Halpen or Halpin
  • Hatch
  • Hysom or Hysome
  • James
  • King
  • Leighton
  • Little
  • McDaniel
  • Podboy
  • Reeves

The Bible, which measures approximately 9-1/2" by 6-1/2" by 2-1/2", was published by T. Carlton & J. Porter of 200 Mulberry Street, New York, New York.  There's no date of publication, but I suspect it was the mid 1800s.

The Bible was originally owned by Samuel Leighton and wife Adaline (Hatch) Leighton.   Adaline died in 1873, and Samuel subsequently married Elizabeth (Fish) Little, widow of Benjamin Little, with whom she had several children.  Most of the entries in the Family Record pages deal with Elizabeth's children from her first marriage.  Samuel and Elizabeth had no children together.

In addition to births, marriages and deaths, the Bible has some notations concerning events in the area, including sermons preached by named ministers and tombs constructed.  It also includes a few items tucked in, including newspaper clippings, needlework, religious items and two four-leaf clovers.

The first front end paper bears the names:
  • Elizabeth Leighton, who was Elizabeth (Fish) Little Leighton
  • Annie A. King, who was Elizabeth's daughter Annie Augusta (Little) King, wife of Abraham Lincoln King


The second front end paper bears the names:
  • Leland S. King, who was Leland Stanford King, son of Abraham Lincoln King and Annie Augusta (Little) King
  • Samuel Leighton of North Newcastle, Maine, who was the first owner of the Bible

The page before the Births page has been removed.  Sadly, this was likely the Marriages, with entries on one or both sides of the leaf lost.

The first Births page:
