I corresponded with Everett H. Nason of Orono,Maine, a Herrick descendant in the early 1980's. He died in 1996 at age ninety-three in Brunswick, Me. He had been a teacher in Windham, Oakland, Brunswick, University of Maine and other places. He had written that he had a letter or letters from Melinda (Herrick) Hannan to her sister, his ancestor, Olive Jane (Herrick) Robinson. Melinda is our ancestor, whose husband, Martin V. B. Hannan, hung a scythe in a tree in Montville when he went to fight in the Civil War. The scythe was never retireved, and the tree grew around it. These many years later, the tree is in a very bad condition, with the limb which once held the scythe gone. I would like to find out where Everett Nason's vast research is, and if it would be possible, to obtain copies of the letter or letters from Melinda to Olive Jane. Melinda reportedly wrote that Martin has just received his Civil War Pension. God bless, Isabel Morse maresh
