The following information is 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.

Dear Mrs. Hamilton,
I am very sorry I can not furnish you with more information to the Partridge History, but I have a cousin living in Ayers, Mass., the last known address is:
Mrs. Affie Washburn
1 Fletcher St.
I don’t know if she can tell you any more than I have, but you might try her. She is the daughter of Susan Olive Partridge who married an Allen, I think. Respectfully, Herbert L. Partridge.

Dear Mrs. Partridge,
I am afraid I cannot tell you much more then I did before. You asked about Aunts- Mary Jane and Joanna. Aunt Mary married Oliver Scolly, and lived in Bath, Me. They had five children-Emma-Julia-Cora-Ephraim-and George.
Aunt Joanna married Robert Andros. They had two children-Elizabeth Emma and Millard. Ad far as I know they lived in Bath, Me. Aunt Mary died in Bath, and I think Joanna did.
I have no Bible records, I guess Father never had any, at least none came to me. I am enclosing the address of
Mr. Robert Partridge
16 Western Av.
I do not know the man, but have heard father say that he was related to his father in some way.
This isn’t much but hope you may be able to learn something from what little I have told you. Wish I could do more.
Very Sincerely yours,
Herbert L. Partridge
P.S. Thanks for the records and will be glad to receive any more you care to send.
P.S. You will be able to find some of the Partridge’s buried at Woolwich Me. in the Partridge Cemetery, and I know of a Horatio Nelson partridge buried in the Growstown Cemetery at Brunswick, Me.
P.S. no 2- You asked if I knew any of Father’s cousins. I do know of one. He was Capt. William Starkey and always resided in Bath, Me., as far as I know. His wife’s name was Affie. He was about Father’s age. I think his wife was Affie Purington. He also had a sister, Lizzie Woodbury. I never knew her. Lizzie had a dau. Lillian who married a Wood. They use to reside somewhere in Mass., but I do not know where.
