1865 document from Limerick, Maine, identifying Jesse Locke Gould (1827-1900) as Pound Keeper.
The document, perhaps a first draft, is incomplete; it shows a date of July 28, 1865 with a space for signatures, but is not signed by the Selectman.
Jesse married Sarah Johnson (1828-1883) and had at least three children, one of whom died young.
Read an interesting history of the pounds in the nearby towns of Acton and Shapleigh.
If you have information to share on the Gould and Johnson families of Limerick, Maine, please leave a comment for the benefit of other family researchers.
