"Old Hannah with the withered hand" must have been Betsy's mother, either [one struck through] a Francis or a Neptune [three struck through]. {Father mixed up the totems with the Neptunes}

Old Betsy, the terror of my childhood, a drunken old beggar. She was a Neptune [one struck through] a Notamis & a sister to Joe Denny {or Joe Sepsis} who was also a Neptune [five struck through]. She m. Frank Sock who was killed in the war (says Lewey). "Some says I'se foolish but my sister Betsy she's more foolish nor I be. We have bills of Joe Denny's given at Castine Denny, so Clara says was father of Sebattis Denny. {but doubtful}

Margaret Mitchell was Dr. Sebattis Mitchell's wife {d. 1888}

Juliana Raccoon was Attean Raccoon's widow. I saw her in 1887 when she said she was 49 years old, a very trim little woman - [thirteen struck through] a pleasant old woman; also the widow of Peol Molly who was then 49 years old, a neat, trim little black eyed woman. The two came together to our house.
