     Due to a need for men to serve during World War I, the United States instituted a draft. The first registration was for men between the ages of 21 and 31. As a result, this first registration included men born between June 5, 1886 and June 5, 1896. As World War I continued to escalate, the United States instituted a second draft registration. The second registration was for men who had turned 21 since June 5, 1917, so it added men born between June 5, 1896 and June 5, 1897. Two months later, a supplemental registration was held on August 24, 1918 for men who had become 21 years of age since June 5, 1918, adding the names of men who were born between June 5, 1897 and August 24, 1897. With no end in sight for World War I, the United States instituted it's third and final registration. It included all men who were between the ages of 18 and 21, and 31 to 45 years of age. This added younger men than the previous registrations, those who were born between September 12, 1897 and September 12, 1900; and added an older group of men, born between September 12, 1873 and September 12, 1888.

BANGOR - Eleanor Silsby Burrill Hill, 91, died April 9, 2009, surrounded by family and friends. She was born July 25, 1917, in Brewer. Growing up on Poplar Street, Bangor, she attended Mary Snow School the first year it opened. As the oldest of many cousins, she enjoyed time in the blueberry fields of Aurora, summers at Guard Point and adventures as a teenager driving a Morris Minor automobile. She graduated from Eastern Maine General Hospital as a registered nurse in 1939 and worked there as an orthopedic supervisor enjoying the company of her uncle, Dr. Sam Silsby. She joined the Army in November 1942 and was stationed in North Africa, Tunisia, Italy and Southern France during World War II. She returned to attend the University of Maine in 1946, where she created her own program to graduate with a bachelor's degree in nursing. She married O.B. Hill in June 1949 after his graduation and moved to Boston while he attended Massachusetts School of Optometry. During that time she was assistant director of nursing at Boston Lying Inn. Having been exposed to natural childbirth, she was the first to deliver naturally at Hartford Hospital. At the age of 36, this was her first child, Debbie and her second child, Sharon, was born five years later. While living in West Hartford, Conn., volunteer work, school activities and church were important to her. However, her children and family were always her main focus. Summers with her sister's family at Lake Onawa, at the foot of Borestone Mountain, are among the family's fondest memories. Her husband, O.B., died in 1996 after 47 years of marriage. Her last three years in Bangor at Country Villas were "the next best thing to home." She was an avid Red Sox fan; never missing a game and was one of few to live long enough to see the team win three World Series Championships. Her positive attitude and joy of life will be missed by her daughters, Debbie Hill Hunter and Sharon Hill Shaw; her sons-in-law, Mark Hunter and David Shaw; and her grandchildren, Michael and Lauren Hunter and Danielle and Stephen Shaw. Family and friends will be invited to a graveside service, which will be announced in the spring. In honor of her granddaughter, Danielle, donations may be made to National Eating Disorders Association at nationaleatingdisorders.org or a check may be sent to National Eating Disorders Association, 603 Stewart St., Suite 803, Seattle, WA 98101.4

An extract from the Bangor Daily News dtd Thursday June 3, 1937 The Passing of Ella L. Burrill Long and Useful Life of Unselfish Devotion Ended at 83 The many friends of Mrs. Ella Lovejoy Burrill, 83, widow of Hadley P. Burrill are saddened to learn of her death which occurred Wednesday morning in Bangor after a long period of failing health. She was born in Kenduskeag, the daughter of Asa G and Mary Hackett Lovejoy. Her early years were in that locality and there she received her first schooling. Later she attended and was graduated from Waterville Classical Institute, after which she taught school for several years with marked success, and, grieved with them at times of disappointments. While teaching school in Dedham and on March 22, 1880, was married to Hadley P. Burrill also a teacher and later a dealer in general merchandise and a well-known lumberman, a leader in church and Sunday school work and foremost in everything pertaining to public welfare. They made their home in Dedham until his death 22 years ago. After which she continued to live for several years in the old home and later spent her winters with her daughter, Mrs. Hugh Penney, and summers in Dedham until the home burned four years ago. She was a charter member of New Century Grange, Dedham; of Dedham Ladies’ Aid; Elliot Union Church Circle of King’s Daughters, Lowell, Mass., and a member of the Dedham Congregational Church, from its organization she served faithfully as a church clerk and many other capacities. For many years she was a teacher in the Sunday School which she helped organized, not giving up the work as long as her health permitted her to carry it on. She gave proof of her Christian character in many ways, in her devotion as a wife and mother, in her fidelity to church work, her hospitality in her home and her kindness as a neighbor. Of a most willing and self-sacrificing nature she gave freely of her time and strength until prevented by her failing health, and it was with great reluctance she gave up the manifold cares and duties of a long and useful life. Many crosses were hers to bear – the loss of her home, three of her children and of her husband all of which she bore with Christian fortitude and her whole life was a shining example of patience, cheerful resignation and faith in God. “Pale Withered hands, that more than fourscore years She wrought for others; smoothed the hurt of tears, Rocked children’s cradles, eased the fever’s smart, Now starless folded like wan rose leaves pressed Above the snow and silence of her breast; Inmate they tell of labors done, And well-earned rest that came at set of sun.” Mother of six sons and one daughter; three sons, Harold S., Leslie F., Clifford L., and Marcia Burrill Penney survive her. She also leaves one brother Horace Lovejoy of Old Town; one sister, Mrs. Hard Brown of Milton, Mass; 13 grandchildren, one great grandchild and several nieces and nephews. Prayers for the family will be at the home of her son, Harold S. Burrill, Friday afternoon at one o’clock DST and the funeral service will be from the Dedham Congregational church at 2:30 DST. “Rest from thy labor, rest, Soul of the just sent free! Blest be thy memory and blest Thy bright example be."25
