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).
