bullet  Birth Notes:

Note that birth dates for brothers Bloomington K. Sumner and Americus F. Sumner are identical. Query: should Americus' year of birth be 1858?
A discrepancy exists as to middle initial for Americus, whether F. or P. between the birth record as shown in the Camden Town Records and as quoted in "Early families in Gouldsboro, Maine."
