The Official Story
The Foster story in the official town historyThe official town history written by Joseph North's grandson includes more than ten pages dealing with the story of Isaac Foster and his ill-fated time in Hallowell. You will see that James North describes the details of the wrangles between Foster and the town and the dismissal of the young minister. Then he concludes, "Thus ended the unfortunate connection of the first settled minister with the town."
But what about the rape case?
James North does not even mention Rebecca Foster and the charges she brought against Judge Joseph North.
