Maine Revised Statutes

§2866. Persons deemed members; dissolution

Any person described in section 2865, residing in a local parish holding funds derived from this State or Massachusetts, shall be deemed a member of it until he dissolves the connection. Such person having resided in such parish one year, after he has arrived at majority, without either giving written notice to its clerk of his consent to be a member thereof, or paying a tax or subscription according to the mode that said parish has adopted to raise money, shall be deemed to have thereby dissolved his connection therewith. Said connection shall remain dissolved, and said person shall not be taxable until he renews the connection by giving written notice to its clerk of his consent to be a member of said parish. Any person residing in a local parish may become a member of such parish not deriving funds from the State, by giving written notice to its clerk of his intention to do so within one year after he is of age or removes thereto.
