PALMER handwriting

Hello Everyone…Here is my odd question for the day. How many PALMER researchers (past and present) are there who have a distinct style of handwriting? The handwriting in question is not cursive although some of the “printed” letters may connect or touch – usually two within a word.BessSee More

In the Probate records of Kennebec, Maine 26 July 1803, Guardianship of Benjamin Palmer of Augusta, minor of the age of 14 years and the son of Cheleab Palmer late of August, yeoman, deceased has named Benjamin Pettingill of Augusta, husbandman, to be my guardian. BenjaminPettingill is the brother of Rhoda Pettingill, not her Father who is Benjamin Pettingill, Esquire.  After Rhoda's 2nd marriage in 1795 to Jabez Clough the combined family live in Winthrop, Maine.  The North Half of this township becomes Readfield. Benjamin Palmer's sister, Susanna marries James Savage Clough, her step-brother.  Benjamin marries Hannah Atkinson, the daughter of James Atkinson, neighbors of the Clough/Palmer family.  I have copies of the sources if you don't already have them.
