HELPED CUT FIRE WOOD IN THOMAS WOODS WITH DICK FUN DAYS

My father's homestead♡

I was the 5th generation of Thomas' to live in this house. The house was built in 1861 by a Mr. Adams. My great great grandfather Perez Thomas bought this house in 1863 and moved his family to Caribou from Hartford, Maine.

My grandfather Lorenzo (Len) Dow Hobbs Jr. owned the farm to the right of this house. He married one of the Thomas girls and she died young. He then married my grandmother Mable Blackstone. The Hobbs farm was sold off before I was born in 1942. Len's son Philip built his house right to the house in this picture. My mother Dorothy Hobbs married my father Kenneth in 1933.
