Settled at the close of the Revolutionary War, an 1843 fire destroyed all town records up to that date. This volume is all the more important for present day researchers.Included here are accounts of the early grants and purchases, sketches of the grantees, early settlers, prominent residents, etc. The genealogical section is particularly complete, documenting virtually all of the early settlers and their families. As with most Maine town histories, it covers nearby areas as well.
