Early Maine lore, Indian princess who traveled around and about the area of West Paris and Trap Corner, on Route 26 in Oxford County in the White Mountains (western edge of
Maine). According to Joe Perham in "Tales from
the Maine Woods, Vol. I", she buried her wealth
and belongings under a tree in Trap Corner. Needing
food and shelter, she was turned away from the local
inn. Mollyockett laid a curse upon the inn, which
subsequently burned down. She eventually found her way to
the Hamlin residence, where she received food and care.
It was said she placed a blessing upon the young Hannibal
Hamlin, who later in life became Vice President.
Mollyockett Day is celebrated in Bethel in July each year.
