This record was added to Maine Memory Network through the efforts of a student at Leeds Central School. More info about student projects.


A handbill advertised that Mrs. R. S. Greenlaw was coming to North Turner on December 10, 1861 and had taken rooms at L. J. Pollard, by the North Turner Bridge.

Mrs. Greenlaw "administered" vegetable remedies and was a clairvoyant.

John Y. Merrill's 1861 diary mentions consulting with Mrs. Greenlaw and various other spiritualists who visited the area in the years following his wife's death in 1860.
