      ...
      Otisfield Cumberland County Maine April 21st 1862 I hereby certify the foregoing is a correct copy of the records kept by me of marriages solemnized while I resided in Perry Maine and that I joined in marriage according to Law the Individuals named in this schedule at the time specified therein and that all the statistics exhibited therein are correctly represented according to facts and furthermore I certify that I made due returns to the Town Clerk to whom returns belonged of which record is made in due form on my Books, so that if the Town Clerks records do not show the list of marriages now again returned by me it is not my fault.

      A True Copy Attest Levi P Brown Town Clerk
      Recorded April 30 1862 by Levi P Brown Town Clerk


      [There is a section of marriages recorded in the Perry records by Jonathan Stickney in the period of the marriage of John McGowan m Lovina Seeley. It records several marriages that are re-recorded at the 1862 date, but it does no record this one. So we are lucky that Mr Davenport re-submitted his records, or else we would not have this date.]
