County Officers From Sangerville

In comparison with others of the larger towns in Piscataquis County, it would
seem that Sangerville has had rather a meagre share of the county officers. Wlieii
the county was organized in 1838, Governor Kent appointed members of the
Whig party to fill the various offices in the new county and Barnabas Bursley
was thus honored with being the first Register of Probate and was elected to the
same position in 1841, serving one term. In 1858 Samuel Whitney, for several
years a merchant at Sangerville village, was elected Register of Probate and died
in office. Colonel Wilham Oakes, Jr., was Sheriff 1842-1845 and Edward
Jewett held the office for one tei-m in 1862. Mr. Jewett was again elected Sherif?
in 1863 and held the office until and including 1872. In 1849 Jonathan Roberts
was elected County Commissioner and Barnabas Bursley was elected to the
same office in 1853 and Melvin J. Jewett in 1896. Wilham A. Burgess, then re-
