Dea. Lord sold his place in 1864 for $1800 to Abraham T. Tilton, who giving up to his son, Horatio, his farm on the Norridgewock road above the line, spent his last years in the brick house. His daughters Sarah and Abbie lived there throughout their lives.

Skowhegan on the Kennebec:
A memorial list of Skowhegan Service men of the War of 1812. "Several men who lived in town later had had service in the war of 1812, among whom were Abraham Tilton."
I have spent many hours in the Tilton house. It was bought by Louise Coburn and is now the Skowhegan History House Museum. It houses the history of Old Skowhegan.
If I can be of further help let me know.
