Notes for GOVERNOR JONATHAN GLIDDEN HUNTOON:

From Allan F. Abrahamse:

[Readfield, Maine, in Kennebec County: A Historical & Genealogical Home Page, Address on 11 Oct 2002: www.rootsweb.com/~mecread/readfld.htm.]

"8th Governor of Maine 1830-1831 Jonathan Hunton was born 3/14/1781 in Unity Plantation, N.H., the son of Josiah and Hannah (Glidden) Hunton. He married Betty Craig who died c1820. Jonathan's uncle, Samuel Glidden, owned a business in Readfield, which Jonathan assumed ownership of after his uncle's death. Jonathan's second marriage was to Mary Glidden, Samuel Glidden's widow. In 1830 Mr. Hunton was elected to the office of Governor. Most mentally ill individuals lived under deplorable conditions at this time, so very soon after Governor Hunton was elected he called the State Legislature's attention to the need for a state asylum. Four years later legislators appropriated $20,000.00 for that purpose, and they began the process of locating a site for the Maine State Insane Asylum (AMHI). From 1832 - 1834 Jonathan Hunton served in the Maine House of Representatives and the State Senate."
