To live in Maine, a Jeep is one of the most practical vehicles you can own.  If you search for cemeteries, search for old homesteads...gotta have a 4 x 4!  Searching for ancestors is just the best trip you can take!  Hope this following information will be your "jeep".  Mine is RED!

The following information comes from a document held at the Weld Historical
