  • Notes 
    • Helen Gates in "The Day Family" published in the Plymouth Historical Society newsletter writes: "Nathaniel Day acted as Postmast of Plymouth Post Office, which was moved to medicine lake (sic) to his home in 1865. He died in the winter of 1867, leaving the care of his wife to the youngest son, Joseph, who was 17 years of age at that time."

      It was clear that he had considerable difficulty supporting his family prior to this time. Letters written by his son Amos, found in the mother's pension application after Amos' death, show that Amos routinely sent money to his family back home in Maine.
