A transcription of a letter written by a Mrs. Lizzie A. Lane of Stockton Springs, Maine to Vera Partridge Hamilton. Lizzie was born 17 Nov 1871 to Matthew Partridge and Elizabeth Ann Berry. She married as her second husband, Fred Amos Lane.
Correspondence (2 letters) between Herbert L. Partridge and Vera Partridge Hamilton. While the dates state the same, what I have is a typewritten copy, and the transcriber (Vera) obviously input the wrong date in one of the letters. This is the basis of what I used to document much more in depth, the Woolwich Maine Patridge Family.
These three letters were written by temporary residents of Merrimac, Wisconsin, hailing from Templeton, Massachusetts, and throwing interesting light on social and economic conditions in the Badger State in 1857-58. The letters were written to Unity Fales (Mrs. Otis) Partridge at Templeton by her sons James Otis and Maynard. James Otis Partridge, who was born at Templeton in 1828 and died at Partridgeville, a village in the town of Templeton, in 1873, was the father of the contributor.
