Between 1819 and 1826, Enoch Lincoln (1788-1829), a lawyer and legislator, boarded with Dr. Cyrus Hamlin of Paris Hill.
In the several years before Maine became a state, Lincoln was the U.S. Representative from the 7th District of Massachusetts; then a U.S. Representative from Maine, 1821-26.
Lincoln was elected Governor of Maine in 1826 and died in 1829 while serving as governor.
This daguerreotype was taken from a portrait of Lincoln created ca. 1827.
