311City, Town, County Records
- Feb 5, 2008I visited Waldoboro several years ago hoping to get information on
Prachts (now Procks) and Wagners. Town hall personnel told me that
the records were lost in a fire many years ago.
My question is - were the town records deposited in the County or
State archives anytime before the fire?
I have a copy of Broad Bay Pioneers but have found that there are
many errors and/or omissions, especially as they relate to the
Prachts and Wagners.
Over the years I have written to many of the Procks living in
Waldoboro but none of them has ever responded. Is there anyone in
town who can get them to write me?
I am looking for information on John Frederick Pracht and Susanna
Wagner. Both names appear in Broad Bay Pioneers for a brief time
only. I believe that John Frederick joined the King's Rangers, a
loyalist unit, along with other Waldoboro youngsters and, ultimately,
ended up in Prince Edward Island (PEI) where they were given land
grants. Other Waldoboro names that turn up in PEI are Eichhorn
(Acorn), Dockendorf and others.
Any information would be very much appreciated. It's been a long
struggle to get any information on Waldoboro residents.
