Undated property map, with no scale, drawn in black ink on yellow vellum. The map location is not clearly identified though features include a body of water identified as “Cheputnecticook River” and a bend in Tomah Stream. Five lots, numbers 1, 2, 15, 29 and 30, are labeled with the name “Porter.” The map includes faint pencil notations suggesting names for streams.
From Gardner Family Papers, 1830-1939. John Gardner (1801-1888), was the principal surveyor in Calais, Maine. His son, Benjamin E. Gardner (1869-1939), a civil engineer and land surveyor took over for his father and worked most frequently with local attorneys doing land title research.
