14 December 1862 receipt for the payment of $2.02 made by Francis Hodgkins to Isaac Somes at Mount Desert, Maine, for Weaving and Dressing a quantity of Black Satinet.
The reverse of the receipt was used to tally some figures.
Isaac Somes may have been the Isaac Somes born 14 February 1803, son of Abraham Somes, Jr., and Rachel (Babson) Somes. That Isaac married Charlotte Dodge. He died 7 October 1875 and is buried at Brookside Cemetery at Mount Desert, Maine. His occupation was listed as "Clothing" on the 1850 and 1860 Censuses of Mount Desert, Maine.
I wonder if this Isaac Somes house was his?
Francis Hodgkins may have been the Francis Hodgkins who was appointed postmaster at nearby East Trenton, Maine, on 25 March 1856.
