Location: Norway, Oxford, Maine, United States
In the 1790 federal census, the village of Rustfield, Maine (transcribed by Ancestry as Raffield Gore; now Norway, Maine) had 20 households, totaling 102 people. At the time, northwestern Maine was still very much an unsettled frontier area.
The Maine Genealogical Society is producing a series of books on the families listed in the 1790 census. Five of the Rustfield families are already profiled. This project is my tracking of the remaining families, with the eventual goal of producing sketches to be published in future volumes of MGS's 1790 series.
Right now this project just has one member, me: I am B. J. Jamieson.
