1812 document where a Mr. How itemizes the cost of repairs to the Rollins house where he was then residing. The front of the document mentions C. How, but the reverse shows either W. How, M. How or N. V. How.
The document doesn't mention a locale, but the person who sold it to me noted that it was found with others that pertain to Midcoast Maine.
In addition to How and Rollins, other people mentioned:
- Mr. Teb*, carpenter [Tebbetts or variant ?]
- Mr. Whitehouse, a carpenter
- Mr. Abbott, a painter
- Mr. Currier, paint purveyor
- Mr. How's sons
Readers: if these clues bring a locale and/or identities to mind, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
