    Two pages shown for Kennebec Twp., although not adjacent pages. The first shows the household headed by James Palmateer and the re-married Catherine VV-Garrison-Laraby, along with some Laraby children that are identified as Palmateers. The very next household is one of James Palmateer's grown children from his first marriage, along with one of Catherine's daughters.

    The second page shows the son of Catherine VV and Elias Garrison. With this family is living a Hannah VV, suspected to be a the mother or relation of Catherine VV, if so, she would be a grandmother of James Garrison.
