Nobleboro, Maine, in 2020


  1. RE: Crowel Hatch - not sure of given name
    There was a Crowell Hatch in Nobleboro in 1820. Christine Huston Dodge's OLD BRISTOL AND NOBLEBORO, MAINE VITAL RECORDS lists him as a ship's carpenter, husband of Priscilla. He is buried in the Old Hodgdon Yard section of Hillside Cemetery, Damariscotta.
