Source: Charles Foster Whitman, A history of Norway, Maine: from the earliest settlement to the close of the year 1922 [Ancestry.com] (Lewiston, Me.: Lewiston Journal Printshop and Bindery, 1924).

The following deaths are taken from that section of Whitman's History of Norway called "Annals from 1826 to 1875." I have included only those deaths which occurred after 1852. For earlier deaths, see Mercy A. Whitman's record of deaths, which was Whitman's source, and Deaths in Norway, 1789-1819.
