Does anyone know about any "Poor Farms" in Somerset County? Especially around 1820's in the Norridgewock area.
I read in the "Town Orders" that some people were paid for helping people out but it only lists the 1 person not the entire fmily. So if the man is working on farm where would the family go?

Appreciate any help you can offer.
