Ne-Do-Ba Comment - - - John & Elizabeth Polis are identified as mixed blood Indians generally living in Maine. John is further identified as Penobscot. Elizabeth is probably Passamaquoddy. In John's Civil War pension record we find the following statements by his widow, concerning their marriage. She gives several dates for the marriage. On the first document we find the date 14-Sep-1863

... at Coolbrook NH by one Lewis Patol an Indian Preacher among them ...

On another document 25-Dec-1863 is written and crossed out [he enlisted in the army on the 8-Dec-1863], and "a day in November" is written above. She further states that she cannot furnish any witness of her marriage nor a record,

as the Indian minister was a Traveler from place to place among the different families of Indians. She dont know where they might be found. The last she know they was in Canada.
