Stanwood homestead

1859 Penobscot Co., Maine map

This 1859 map of Penobscot County, Maine shows B. Stanwood, who resided in Township No. 2, Indian Purchase (now known as Woodville).  In 2013 I sought to find the location, and not only found Benjamin Stanwood’s homestead, but also found a distant cousin, also a descendant of Benjamin and his wife, Betsey (Wasgatt) Stanwood.  This cousin lives on the land originally owned by Benjamin.

Home of Benjamin and Betsey (Wasgatt) Stanwood which was purchased by the Libby family (shown in front)

Above is an image of the house which Benjamin and Betsey sold to Phineas Libby.  Shown are descendants of Phineas in front of the home.
