1826 School or Church School Document from Thomaston, Maine - Names of 37 Scholars

1826 school or church school document from Thomaston, Maine, with the names of 37 scholars.

[Thanks to Maine Genealogical Society members for helping me tease out the meaning of this document.]
If you have information to share on any of the scholars listed, please leave a comment for the benefit of other family researchers. I'll amend the post to show your contribution.

Some of the scholars were apparently siblings or cousins.  I've included some information on possible identities, but many of the surnames are common to the area, with given names repeating many times.

 If you have information on any of these scholars, please leave a comment for the benefit of other family researchers.
