Ebenezer Parker

Deputy Sheriff Ebenezer Parker succumbed to injuries sustained one week earlier when he was beaten over the head with a forge hammer while attempting to serve a warrant.

Deputy Parker had located the man, wanted for failing to pay a debt, in Saccarappa. When Deputy Parker entered the blacksmith shop he was attacked by the man and beaten.

The man was convicted of Deputy Parker's murder and hanged in July 1808.

At the time of Deputy Parker's murder, Maine had not yet been formed as a state, and Cumberland County was a part of Massachusetts.
