     Joseph Sewall was born on 17 December 1770 in Bath, Maine.2,3 He was the son of Colonel Dummer Sewall and Mary Dunning.1 Joseph Sewall was baptised on 7 July 1771.2 He was a carpenter and builder in his early life and then engaged as an owner and builder in navigation at Hunnewell's Point, Maine which is now Popham Beach, where he resided for several years. He occupied what is known as the " White House", a conspicuous building, which was always painted white. He was a man of magisterial prominence, presiding at town meetings, and was a ready speaker. In 1816 he removed to Farmington, Maine where the remainder of his life was spent in farming. "He was a gentleman of the Old School, of a strong personality, and of great integrity of character, traits which were prominent in all the Sewalls."

A contract for the removal of Joseph Sewall to Farmington, reads "Farmington, Maine, April 23, 1816. This day Nathan Bacchus and Joseph Sewall agree that the said Nathan shall convey in his stagecoach the family of the said Joseph Sewall, consisting of three grown females, and three children together with 250 pounds of baggage from Hallowell, Maine to Farmington, Maine via the house of Elizabeth Luce, for the sum of nine dollars. The said Sewall shall be with his family at Hallowell Maine as soon as may be after the first Monday of May, next, and the said Nathan shall take him there as aforesaid on the Saturday morning following."

Joseph Sewall cleared his farm at Farmington and erected good buildings thereon.

Other accounts simply describe him as a shipbuilder in Bath who lost all his property in the embargo and war of 1812.3

His college career was interrupted in the summer of 1942 by training as an aerial navigator with the Air Transport Command. He flew many trips to the far Arctic and Greenland ferrying supplies and personnel. Given a direct commission into U.S. Naval Aviation in 1943, he continued flying the North Atlantic in Squadron VR-1 until his honorable discharge in 1946 as lieutenant junior grade. Returning to Old Town he joined the family firm in surveying and timberland management, where he served as president/CEO until 1996 when he became chairman until his retirement in 2002. The James W. Sewall Co. had about 10 employees in 1946 and had grown to 175 when Sewall retired. Drawing upon his experience as an aviator, Sewall moved the company from land-based surveying to using aircraft for aerial photography and surveying. He also established branch offices in Alaska, Canada and Ireland. Not content to focus solely upon business, Sewall spent 25 years in elective office - nine years on Old Town City Council and 16 as state senator for Penobscot County. He served as president of the Maine Senate from 1975 to 1982, four terms, the longest serving Republican senate president in Maine history.

An enthusiastic fly-fisherman, he built and operated Millbrook Farm on the Upsalquitch River, Robinsonville, New Brunswick, an Atlantic salmon camp. Being "in camp" with Sewall was ever a delight for the twinkle in his eye as he tightened his drag stimulating his chosen topic of conversation. Of his many friendships, none meant more to him than those built at Millbrook. Sewall was a member of Penobscot Valley Country Club, Castine Golf and Tennis Club, Center Harbor Yacht Club, the Tennis and Racquet Club of Boston, Upsalquitch Salmon Club and the Aero Club of New England. He was also a member of the Masons and Rotary International. Among many interests, Sewall was a golfer, tennis player, sailor, fly-fisherman, bird hunter and avid reader of 17th to 21st century history. Sewall was predeceased by his parents; wife, Hilda (Wheelwright); son, Joseph W; and four siblings. He is survived by son, David T; daughter, Abigail; granddaughter, Elizabeth; sister, Elizabeth Gary; cousin, Louise Moody; nephew, James Page; great-nieces, Alexandra and Hanna; former daughter-in-law, Elizabeth; as well as his dear friend and companion, Meredith K. Hashey. Bangor Daily News, December 2, 2011.

Rev. Dr. Joseph Sewall1

M, b. 15 August 1688, d. 4 July 1769
Joseph Sewall by Natl. Hurd
     Rev. Dr. Joseph Sewall was born on 15 August 1688 in Boston between 8 & 9 in the morning.2,3 He was the son of Chief Justice Samuel E. Sewall and Hannah Hull. Rev. Dr. Joseph Sewall was baptised on 19 August 1688 by Mr. Willard in the Old South Meeting House.4,5 He married Elizabeth Walley, daughter of Major General John Walley and Sarah (Unknown), on 29 October 1713 in Boston, Massachusetts, Mr. Ebenezer Pemberton officiated.6,7 Rev. Dr. Joseph Sewall died on 4 July 1769 in Boston at the age of 80. He was buried in the Hull-Sewall tomb in the Granary Burying Ground..2

Sewall Joseph, D. D. was the son of the Hon. Samuel Sewall, Esq. chief justice of the province. He was graduated at Harvard College, 1707, and was ordained as colleague with the Rev. Mr. Pemberton, pastor of the old south church, Sept. 16, 1713. For many years he continued to preach to this people, who were edified, instructed and comforted by his labours. He was a man who seemed to breathe the air of heaven, while he was here upon earth; he delighted in the work of the ministry; and when he grew venerable for his age, as well as his piety, he was regarded as the father of the clergy. The rising generation looked upon him with reverence, and all classes of people felt a respect for his name. He was a genuine disciple of the famous John Calvin. He dwelt upon the great articles of the Christian faith in preaching and conversation; and dreaded the propagation of any opinions in this country, which were contrary to the principles of our fathers. Hence he was no friend to free inquiries, or to any discussion of theological opinions, which were held true by the first reformers. His advice to students in divinity was, to read the Bible always with a comment, such as Mr. Henry's, or Archbishop Usher's, and to make themselves acquainted with the work of his great predecessor, Mr. Willard, whose body of divinity was then in great repute. Though he so often preached the doctrines of the gospel, yet he never entered into any curious speculations; his object was to impress upon people what they should believe, and how they must live to be eternally happy. His sermons were pathetick [emotional], and the pious strains of his prayers, as well as preaching, excited serious attention, and made a devout assembly. His character was uniform, and the observation has often been made, if he entered into company something serious or good dropt from his lips. "His very presence banished away every thing of levity, and solemnized the minds of all those who were with him." He received the degree of doctor of divinity from the university of Glasgow, in the year 1731; and was appointed a corresponding member of "the society in Scotland for promoting Christian knowledge." He was also appointed one of the commissioners, by the hon. corporation in London, "for the propagation of the gospel in New England, and parts adjacent." Although Dr. Sewall was more remarkable for his piety than his learning, yet he was a friend to literature, and endeavoured all in his power to promote the interest and reputation of the college. He was a very good classical scholar. He could write handsomely in Latin when he was an old man, and had read many authors in that language. Most of the works of the great divines of the preceding century were written in Latin, as it was a kind of universal language among the literati of Europe. In the year 1724, upon the decease of Mr. Leveret, Dr. Sewall was chosen to succeed him as president of Harvard College, which honourable station he did not see fit to accept. In 1728, upon Dr. Colman's resignation, he was chosen a fellow of the corporation, and he faithfully discharged the duties of this office, till the year 1765. His donation to the college of money to be appropriated to indigent scholars, has been of considerable use. He gave this during his life, and was among the first to repair the loss of the library, when Harvard Hall was consumed by fire, by making a present of many valuable books. This devout man also gave much alms to the people. He possessed an estate beyond any of his brethren; but he always devoted a tenth part of his income to pious and charitable uses. It pleased the Lord of life to bless him with health, as well as other means of enjoyment. He lived to a good old age; and preached to his people the evening he had arrived at fourscore years. The next Sabbath he was seized with a paralytical complaint, which confined him some months, and he died, June 27th, 1769, in the 81st year of his age.
The Dr. published a number of funeral sermons. One on the death of Wait Winthrop, Esq. 1717 ; King George 1st, 1727; on Pres. Wadsworth, 1737; on Sec'y. Willard, 1756. He printed likewise the election sermon, 1724; and a discourse on Rev. v. 11, 12, 1745. Eliot: Biographical Dictionary of New England, p. 422.8
