1845 I.O.O.F. Document of Hobomok Lodge of Bath, Maine; A. W. Turner and Jacob S. Sewall
September 30, 1845 International Order of Odd Fellows document from Hobomok Lodge of Bath, Maine. It's a receipt signed by Jacob Smith Sewall for the quarterly dues paid by member A. W. Turner.
Hobomok Lodge, No. 16, was chartered in 1844; Jacob Smith Sewall was one of the charter members.
A. W. Turner was presumably Abner Wade Turner (1796-1877) or his son Abner Warren Turner (1824-1881). Both were born at Bath, Maine. Abner Wade Turner married Nancy Brown in 1818. I don't know if Abner Warren Turner married.
Jacob Smith Sewall (1817-1857), a lawyer and businessman, was born at Bath, Maine. He married Charlotte W. Holmes in 1841. Some of his papers are archived with those of his father, Joseph Sewall (1795-1851).
