    Notes 
    • Wedding date extracted from summary of Maine Supreme Judicial Court decision regarding Lewis B. Peterson. In testimony, minister Ebenezer Chandler read his record of a marriage that he performed between Lewis B. Peterson and Mary J. Gammon, solemized May 6, 1860 in Franklin County.

      Various records available on Ancestry.com list a death date of “19 November 1892.” However, this death date appears to be incorrect, according to the summation of a State Supreme Court ruling stating “There was evidence tending to show that said Lewis B. Peterson and Mary Jane Gammon lived together as husband and wife from the date of the marriage to the time of said Mary Jane’s death...” This court opinion was published on September 11, 1879, implying that Mary Jane Gammon had died prior to this date.
