Hooper Genealogy by Sally Eugenia Brown
The original of this record of the Hooper family in Sedgwick, Maine was written by Sally Eugenia Brown, a well-liked woman from Atlanta, Georgia who had a summer home in Sargentville during the early 1900s. Some of the information was copied from the Town Records of Sedgwick, Maine but much of it must have come from Hooper family members living in Sedgwick. The original text is in the possession of Sylvia Wardwell.
