My ancestor Simon Brown purchased 120 acres of land in Township No.One, Fifth Range of Town, Hancock County, Sept 27, 1802, from Elijah Dix of Boston for $338.52. [Bk. 12, p. 490]
Where would this land be located? I know that Simon settled in Brownville. He came from the Thomaston area. He owned property in Thomaston and Cushing and was selling this off in the 1801-1803 time period.
In the 1810 census, Simon was living in Township Two, Range Five, Hancock County. I was told that this was Brownville.
