George Rogers4 Skolfield (George , Clement2, Thomas) was born 20 September 1809 in
Harpswell, Maine; his birth registered in Brunswick, Maine. He married, first, Ann Eliza Reed, daughter
of Joseph Orr Reed and Nancy Stover, on 15 July 1833 in Topsham, Maine; married, second, Hannah
Frances Milliken, daughter of John Milliken and Jemima Bradstrcet Minot, on 27 January 1848 in
Harpswell, Maine, by the Rev. Elijah Kellogg. George died 18 May 1897 in Harpswell, Maine, and was
buried in Pine Grove Cemetery, in Brunswick.
He entered his father's shipyard at age eighteen, and learned the shipbuilder's trade according to the
best approved methods. After his father's death, he and his brothers, Isaac and Samuel, carried on the work
very successfully until 1884. They built wooden ships including some of 1700 tons and some of these
vessels were long in active service, plying between home and foreign ports.
