Alice,

The town is a political jurisdiction (think, township). The villages are communities within the town. So, the clerk for the town of Eustis is in the village of Stratton.

The town of Eustis was incorporated in 1871. So for any records prior to that date, you are going to be dealing with a different town clerk located in a different village - Kingfield.

Incidentally, I have a marriage record dated 15 Sep 1823 for Benjamin Taylor to Miss Mary Stevens, "both of Dead River Settlement." It is recorded in the Kingfield Town Records. Any relation to your Taylors? The Stevens are my family.

Barbara
