Receipt of Payment by Capt. A. Richardson, signed by Hiram Flye, both presumably Residents of Tremont, Maine
Undated paper scrap where Hiram Flye acknowledges receipt of payment by Capt. A. Richardson for the purchase of hardwood planks, etc.
I believe these men were Hiram Flye (1809-1878) and, possibly, Abraham Richardson (1811-1892) or Amos Thurston Richardson (1829-1911). All have a Tremont, Maine, connection.
Hiram Flye and Abraham Richardson are buried in Tremont, in different family cemeteries. Amos Thurston Richardson was a Tremont native but moved to nearby Deer Isle.
Read more about Abraham Richardson here and Hiram Flye here. Amos Thurston Richardson was also a sea captain.
If you have information to share on either of these two men, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
