MGS Special Publication #43Edited By: Marlene A. Groves, CG Pages: 672 Original Publication Year: 2003 Every Name Index: 25,908 entries ISBN: 0-89725-493-7About The Book: St. George is a coastal town located thirteen miles south of Rockland, the county seat.  While the town of St. George makes up the larger part of the peninsula located at the extreme southern part of Knox County, there are several communiteis within the boundaries of the town.  Some of these settlements are more commonly known than others: Clark Island, Elmore, Glenmere, Long Cove, Martinsville, Port Clyde, Spruce Head, St. George, Tenants Harbor, Turkey, Wallston, Wildcat and Willardham.  The town office is actually located in Tenants Harbor which is the largest of these communities.  There are also a  large number of islands within the town’s boundaries, namely:  Allen Island, Burnt Island, Clark Island, High Island, Hupper’s Island, Mosquito Island, Northern Island, Southern Island and Whitehead Island.Marlene Groves has transcribed verbatim all of the vital records for the town of St. George prior to the year 1892 which are located in the town office.  Thse records include the book of family retgisters containing the births and deaths within each individual family, delayed births for the period prior to 1892, marriage intentions between 1822 and 1892, marriage records between 1806 and 1891 and the tax records for the period between 1803 and 1824.  For some years both a valuation list and a taxation list were recorded; in other years only one or the other was recorded.  The 1804 valuation list is of special interest since it provided a much more detailed list of the residents’ property than in other years.  Found on the town’s microfilm of their records were some loose slips of paper showing the inhabitants of the town who had enlisted in the War of 1812, as well as those who served in the Civil War between 1861 and 1865.  While the location of these original documents in the town office is uncertain, the data contained in them has nonetheless been transcribed from the town’s microfilm.Also included in this book is a transcription of the justice of the Peace marriage records kept by Joseph Kalloch between 1840 and 1875.
