Account Books, Diaries & Logs

The society has about seventeen feet of account books. They are arranged roughly by geographic area, family, or purpose, such as store goods or schools. The earliest dates from the 1750s and the latest to the 1970s. Account books are the only items that the society has purchased; we bought from dealers the Levi Reed shipbuilding, the Joseph McCobb store, the John M. McFarland store, and the William McCobb blacksmith account books.

The largest collections are the:

1) Elizabeth Reed extended family account books, including diaries, logs, and a couple of account books of her Reed and Blair families, in boxes 5, 6, 32, 39, 40, 41. The collection principally covers the second half of the 1800s.

2) Frank Rice shipyard collection, given and loaned by Frank’s daughter Gwen Rice Gordon in boxes 22 to 27, and oversize books standing with the boxes. It principally covers the 1910s to the 1930s, some extending to the 1970s.

3) Billy Sawyer chandlery/wrecking business books given by Ed Baker, in boxes 34 to 37. Covers 1870 to 1922.

Aside from the store account books which provide insight into daily life, the account books tend to heavily reflect the local shipyards. Significant Boothbay account books located elsewhere are: the Paul G. Pinkham (vessel rigger) books at Maine Historical Society; and the Reuben Jones (sailmaker) book and the James Oliver Seavey (sparmaker) books at Maine Maritime Museum.

Please note: The information in the links below represents a portion of our holdings. Some items may have been moved to new boxes as collections grow or merge.

Box #34: : BILLY SAWYER CHANDLERY/WRECKING COMMISSIONER

W. E. (Billy) Sawyer ran a hardware & supply store near where Tugboat Inn is now. The building is now a ???. He also had an iceworks on the east side of Southport. The pond is now the town reservoir. The icehouse which was at Pine Cliff burned in ???? Mainly his ice was sold to fishermen rather than being shipped out. He was a wrecking commissioner who acquired old vessels for the purpose of stripping them of their saleable parts for scrap. After stripping them in the Harbor near his business, he towed them to Elwell’s Cove in Mill Cove where he would burn them to extract the metal. One such vessel was the Gold Hunter, pictured in the Fuller 1927 movie. One of Sawyer’s buildings near Tugboat was dismantled and rebuilt at Barters Is. by Chet Rittall.

The Mary Weaver sailed into Mill Cove under her own power but was leaking badly. The idea, according to Carroll Gray, was to sink her in the mud so the mud would work its way into her seams & caulk her. Whatever the plans for her had been, they didn’t work. She was one which Billy Sawyer acquired & stripped. She was an attraction in the Cove and all were sorry when a WPA project had her taken apart. Elbridge Giles was in charge and he spent all one winter lugging her in pieces to his house.

The ledgers were given to Cecil Pierce for the Historical Society by Ed Baker whose uncle had bought the Sawyer place & found them there.
