      “Owing to a difficulty between himself and his father, left home at the age of seventeen and never returned. It is known that he went first to Penobscot County, but there the family lost all trace of him. Orlando W. Trask met a man in Talcahuana, Chili, South America, whom the family believes was Jonathan. O. W. Trask thus refers to the meeting: ‘In the year 1852, while in port at Talcahuana, Chili, I fell in with a man by the name of Trask. He seemed to be speculating in cattle and horses and appeared to be a man of means. Said he was raised in Kennebec County, Maine. He inqauired all about my family, who my father was, and in short, questioned me very closely. I gave him full information, but could get no satisfactory information as to his family. The manner in which he questioned me betrayed that he knew the family concerning whom he was making inquiries. He was a large, muscular man, and in stature bore a close resemblance to my ideal of my brother.’ It is of couse very uncertain whether he is now (1887) living or dead, even if he were living in 1852.”«s37» [1]
