Yesterday I received the following marriage record from the Smithfield Town Office, Smithfield, Maine: "This is to certify that Mr Howard Packard of Rome in the county of Kennebeck and Miss Deborah Taylor of Smithfield in the County of Somerset in the state of Maine were joined in marriage at Smithfield on the 22nd day of April in 1849. By me, Jonas W Gauld, Justis of the Peace"
Howard Packard was the son of Caleb Packard and Lydia Stone. Deborah Taylor was the daughter of Isaiah Taylor and Mehitaba Pattee. Howard and Deborah were my gt gt grandparents.
