      To his Excellency Thomas Pownell Esqr Captn General and Comndr in cheif of his Majestys Province of the Massachusetts Bay in New England And to the Hongl His Majestys Council and the Honbl House of Representatives of sd Province
      The Memorial of the Soldiers of Fort Hallifax on kennebeck River under the Command of Wm Lithgow Esqr with all Dutifull Submission Humbly Sheweth that Memorialists is very uneasy under our Present Situation on Account of our wages having been Reduced the Last Year from One Pound Six Shillings & Eight Pence to one Pound four pr Month the former of which Sums the Soldiers that Served under General Winslow, as also in that have served under Capt Lithgow Since his time have Recd as aforsd sum of One pound ? Shillings & Eight Pence Pr Month till June ye 7 1756 this Sum with ye Additional Bounty of five Dollers the Value of which five Dollers we have Recd of our Capt he having as he tells us Recd no Dollers of the Honble Court to Pay such Bounty, Except the three? thereof in Province Notes, was a Great Inducement to Incline your Memossts to Inlist themselves One Year more in the Service of this Fort and More Especially as we have the Promise of the Honble Court for being Discharged at ye End of one Year from the Date of our Several Inlistments, if we Inclined, the Above Promise was by a Vote of the Honble Court Read to us by our Captn at our Inlistments
      May it Pleas your Excellency and ye Honble Court we your Memosts Humbly Conceive our Danger and Duty to be four times as Much as ye Soldiers at any Other Fort on ye Eastern Frontiers. Especially when Consider the Disposition of our Garrison being Divided into four Distinct Posts vizt, ye Store House [tw?]enty men Including Officers the Main Fort or Fort Hallifax thirty Men with their Officers the Grate Redoubt on ye Eminence twenty Men ye Little Redoubt on ye Same Eminence ten Men all Including Officers, the two Last Mentioned Posts is Distance about a Quarter of a mile from Fort Hallifax which fort with ye two Redoubts forms a Tryangle and about ye Same Distance as above from Each Other- that being this Divided the Garrison thereby is Renderd weak in Case of an Atack from ye Enemy as ye Storehouse is Distant from Fort Hallifax Down ye River twenty Miles that being thus in a Manner Independent of Each Other, Obliges us to do ye Duty of four Distinct Forts by Constantly keeping four Distinct Regular Guards Every twenty four hours which brings upon Duty every third day which Duty of it Self your Memosts apprehends is more then Equal to ye Ordinary Duty Preformed at Other Forts in ye County of York, and farther we would Humbly Acquaint your Excellency and ye Honble Court that we are Deprived of Several advantages whih the Soldiers at ye other forts Injoy vizt: keeping some Cows for milk and Butter which Article Inables them to Plant Gardings and Raise sause and Roots, which we Cant do here as the Land will not Produce Scarse any thing without Dung as also Making Stave Shingles Burning Lime Cetching Codfish and Other Small fish usual in Salt Watter Rivers its true we Can in ye Spring for about a Month Cetch fish as trouts anglins and ye Like but as ye Summer advances ye River is so Shole that ye fish Retreats with ye watter so that we Can Cetch nothing of this sort only in ye Spring, besides these Disadvantages we Labour under here and which is Injoyed ye Soldeiry of ye Other Forts here we are Obliged to Boat our Store 23 Miles from ye Sloop to this Fort up a narrow river full of falls or Riffles and Swift Running watter, at ye Other Forts there Provision is Deliverd them under ye Commd of there Guns, here we are Obliged to man and work ye above sd Boats 23 Miles Each Day which is Excessive hand Service, at ye Other forts no Such Service is Requisite, here we are Obliged also to march up and down sd River to Guard those boat at ye Other forts no such Duty is Done which Marching through ye Brush and Sometimes Waiding ye River in towing ye Boats verry much Distressing our bodily Cloathing as also our Shoes and hoses besides ye Grate Hazzard we run in this Service in Loosing our Lives by ye Enemy from Either side of ye River as its not a Musquit shott a Cross, and to do our Captn Justice he has Constantly Gone with us in the time of transporting the Publick Stores with as many of ye under Officers as Could be Spared from ye Sundry forts and hav Never forsed us upon any Duty of Danger or fatigue but where he was willing always to venture himself, and that we would not be understood here to find fault with him or his Conduct, but on ye Contrary your Memosts Apprehend our Captn as ? very Cautious with? Marches up and Down ye River Respecting ye Enemy as also in his Direction of the boats insomuch that Never a boat has been Stove or a Bisquit Cake Lost by any mismanagement or any Other Publick Store Since he has had ye Commd of this Fort all which Can be abundantly Proved by boath Officers and Solders- But to Return May it Please your Excellency and ye honble Court your Memosts Humbly Conceives that the Duty that must necessarly be Done by ye Soldiery of Fort Hallifax in Point of Fateigue and Danger boath Ordenary and Extraordenary is four times so much as is Done at other Forts in ye Eastern Parts According to ye Propation of men, besides all ye Other Disadvantages we Labour under as Beforementioned as farming fishing fowling Lumbng &c
      May it Please your Excellency and ye Honbl Court we have Honoustly here Endeavourd to Represent to your Excellency as also the Honble Court Our Several Grevinces as above and think it very hard to be put upon ye Same footing of ye Other Forts in those Parts where they Run no Risque of there Lives no Other then that of the forts being Surprized which is no so Likely to be ther fate as ours they being Surrounded with ye Inhabitants and we being Sixty miles up ye River and ye Same Distance from ye Nearest Settlers. we would not be tew Tedious but with all Dutifull Submission would Humbly Recommend the whole of our Garrison to your Excellency and ye Honbl Courts most wise Consideration and humbley Pray that we may be Discharged Agreable to ye vote of the Honble Court at ye Expiration of our time we Inlisted for which will be at an End from ye 16th of Next Sept till ye 10th Nov Insuing, and that your Excellency and ye Honble Court will be Pleased to Consider us for our Extrordinary Service for the Year Past as in your Grate wisdom may See meet.

      One family previously identified by Albert A. Pomeroy in his genealogies "The History and Genealogy of the Pomeroy Family..." as descendants of Eltweed Pomeroy seem more likely descended from Richard Pomeroy of the Isles of Shoals. This is the family of Benjamin Pomeroy and his wife Anne. According to A.A. Pomeroy, Benjamin was born in 1724, the son of Eldad Pomeroy and Sarah Wait. Benjamin and Anne had at least 4 children: Richard, b. 5 Aug 1750; Deliverance, b. 11 Mar 1753; Anna, b. 14 May 1755 and Margaret, b. 22 May 1758. According to A.A. Pomeroy, Benjamin "settled in Georgetown, Me."

      Other records associated with the history of Maine, identify a Benjamin Pomeroy, born in 1707 in ME who married "Ann" and had at least five children: Benjamin, b. 24 Jan 1741; Richard, b. 5 Aug 1750; Deliverance, b. 17 Mar 1753; Ann, b. 14 Mar 1755 and Margaret b. 22 May 1758. This Benjamin is identified as the son of Richard Pomeroy and Deliverance Berry.

      Benjamin, son of Eldad would have been rather young to have been married and to have had a child by 1741. Additional research will be done, including a review of the Church of Christ, Congregational (Northampton, MA) records which were microfilmed and available through the Family History Library. We are hoping to find birth and/or baptismal records for the children of Eldad Pomeroy and Sarah Wait. We are also pursuing a search of early Maine vital and Church records.

      Supreme Judicial Court Cumberland County, Maine
      as located and extracted by R oger M elin at the courthouse

      The Depostn of Benja Pomroy to be used at the Supreme Judicial Court to be hold at Falmouth in June of 84 in a case between John Baker and Sarah Mighill
      Taken & sealed
      By Thos Rice Just Peace

      I, Benjamin Pumroy, aged 77 years [1707] testify and say that 47 years ago [1737], I came to live in that part of the Eastern Country, now called Pownalboro, and settled on a lot of land now in the possession of Abijah Dickinson, which land I purchased from Major Denny who then lived on Arrowsic Island, he then being agent to the Boston or Wiscasset Co.
      My brother William Pumroy at that time lived on a lot of land now in the possession of Mrs. John Baker, which he took some time before under the said Boston Company. This I know as I see his name as a settler in Major Denny's book. I further say that since the time of my first settlement, I never heard anybody call the place which is now called Hooper's Narrows, by the name of Cowsegan except those that called themselves Toppins Heirs, who have lately given it that name. I also say that some years after I moved here my said brother William was killed by the Indians in the Eastward
