Description

Nathaniel Kene wasn't the most pleasant man in early-18th-century Maine, and court records back that up. While it is sometimes difficult to draw character studies of the everyday lives of the farmers, artisans and merchants of early America, some of the more "colorful" are revealed through court records. Such is the case with Nathaniel Kene, a man with a short temper and a selfish, manipulative disposition.
