Looking for Nathaniel Brown in Vinalhaven

I am looking for any information about a Nathaniel Brown in Vinalhaven. He was married to a Sabra (maiden name not known). Nathaniel was born around 1802. I can trace him back to the 1850 Census, but I can't find anything else on him. HELP!!! I am just looking for any information that might get me looking in the right place whether it is for his marriage certificate or birth certificate. Is there anyone that can help me...if not for actual information then where I should look for info about people from Vinalhaven. Thanks so much!

Familysearch.org has Knox County "Supreme Judicial Court records" from 1860 to 1929.

I don't know what these encompass, but you may find something in them...?

They are NOT indexed, though.

See Maine, State Archives Collections, then Knox County.

Supreme Judicial Court dockets are also available from 1901 to 1929. Maybe some descendants are in those...?
