1804 Windham, Maine, document: William Hanson; Joseph [possibly Scribner or Sanborn, Jr. or Sr. or ?]
Handwritten document of November 20, 1804, Windham, Maine, with names, I believe, of William Hanson and a Joseph, whose surname might be Scribner or Sanborn, Jr. or Sr., or a longer surname, where the latter indicated that he owed William Hanson the sum of $3.41.
Joseph's handwriting isn't all that clear, but I did find a William Hanson at Windham, Maine, born 18 January 1762, who died at Windham, Maine, on 29 October 1814. He and his wife Matilda (Elder) had, I think, eleven children. See another document with the name of William Hanson of Windham, Maine, here.
As mentioned above, I'm not sure of the name of the person making the document. If you know of a Joseph Scribner or Joseph Sanborn, either Jr. or Sr., living in the Windham, Maine, area around 1804, please leave a comment or contact me directly. Thanks for stopping by!
