Follow Friday - History of Bridgton, Maine

I am so glad that I was able to pick up a copy of this book from the Bridgton Historical Society several years ago. There are a few mentions in it of my ancestor Jonathan Seavey (1795-1858 ), who was a blacksmith there, and his son Clarence (1853-1902 ), my great-grandfather.

Jonathan was involved in laying out the lots for the Sandy Creek Cemetery, in Bridgton, according to this book, and is buried there, with both his wives, and some of his children from both marriages.

  1. I was lucky to have a similar experiance at the last FGS conference. I purchased a small book on the Germantown Memmonites just to get a little history on the settlement; but, that evening, to my great, surprise I found there was a whole section devoted to Cornelius Bom, our ancestor, including a transcription of a letter he wrote.
