  • Sample Deed Report for Richard, Ephraim and Samuel Crockett in Cumberland and Androscoggin County Maine written by Carol P. McCoy June 2007.
    The Crockett family of Cumberland county Maine was involved in numerous land transactions. Many Crockett names are repeated over time and the deed books do not list the details of dates or locations. This report summarizes early deeds for Richard Crockett, Ephraim Crockett and Samuel Crockett found in Cumberland County Maine Deeds 1760-1870, as well as early deeds for David and Joseph Crockett in Androscoggin County Maine in the 1850s. The report lists names of grantors/grantees and shows volume and page numbers. In cases where I thought the deeds were relevant to this research project, I included dates and locations and other details. The report will be helpful should anyone wish to investigate the original deeds for Richard, Ephraim and Samuel Crockett.
