Leech Abstracts from the Maine Farmer

From the Abstracts of Death Notices Miscellaneous News Articles From the Maine Farmer by David C. Young and Benjamin Lewis Keene. They also published one on Marriage Notices.

Leech Jeremiah 68 a native of Minot ME at Sangerville ME [15 Jul 1847]
William H 40 a member of Franklin Division S of T at Augusta ME on 23 Mar [29 Mar 1849]

Both ages are off. And of course, I believe that it is William R. Or perhaps it is a different William Leech. "S of T" stands for the Son of Temperance and more about them can be found in Google Books.

Also, in the Marriages volume:

Leach, Joseph of St. Albans and Eliza Chase, Dec. 13, 1846, Int.
Mary Ann and Jotham S. Viles of Starks, Sept. 17 1848, Int. (I believe the eldest daughter of William R. Leech. Marriage date 1 Oct 1848.)

I think that the above Joseph is the son of John Jr. and Sarah. William R. Leech also had a son Joseph, b. 1846. The Leech family certainly recycled names!
