Request of the dying lighthouse keeper
to his daughter
BY REV. E. S. UFFORD
: out of the sea,
care of the Ught,
The ship« arc rising
The sun has set and no stars I see,
Take good care of the light;
Tlie freighted ships with their cargo dear,
Are drawing on to the harbor near,
And lest they from their course should steer,
Take good care of the light.
The wind is rising out of the sea.
Take good care of the light,
The breakers dash on the rocky lea,
Take good care of the light;
The rushing tide is inward bound.
The rising gale has a moaning sound,
O, some gallant ship may go aground, —
Take good care of the light.
Trim the wick in the lighthouse high.
Take good care of the light.
Lest its life-beams wane and die.
Take good care of the light;
A wakeful eye scans the waters o'er
For the welcome beacon on the shore;
My child, the tower Til climb no more.
Take good care of the light.
Rise and watch till the break of day.
Take good care of the light,
Souls like ships may drift away.
Take good care of the light;
The oil of grace in the heart must shine,
Like a beacon bright with a boon divine.
For the love of Christ whose work is thine.
Take good care of the light.

C^ AILORS on approaching the Maine coast from the south, on
C^ or near the entrance to Penobscot Bay, will observe a pic-
turesque group of islands, the smallest of which, and the farthest
outside of any on the coast of Maine, is nothing more than a
huge barren ledge of about thirty-two acres. On this rock are
two light-house towers, two fog-w^histles and several comfortable
dwellings to accommodate the four light-house keepers and their
families w^ho appear happ}^ and contented notwithstanding their
The original Matinicus Rock light-station, erected in
1827, was a cobblestone dwelling with a wooden tow^er at each
end. In 1847 these towers were removed, and a granite dwelling
with semicircular towers was built. Since then it has developed
into an establishment of considerable dimensions, requiring the
services of a keeper and three assistants. The granite dwelling
still stands, but the present station has two graj^ granite towers
one hundred and eighty feet apart, and connected by a low
covered passage; for in high winter storms it would be a hard
scramble for the keepers to make their way from tower to tower
in the open, not only on account of the wdnd, which often blows
a hurricane, but also because of the heavy seas which break
over the rock. Then there are the keepers' dwellings, a brick
house with engines for operating two fog-whistles (one held in
reserve, in case of accident to that in use) and, as a further pre-
caution, a fog-bell swinging from a wooden pyramidal skeleton
stand, a brick storehouse for oil, and the boat-house with, a
GEMS OF THE OCEAN
tiinber-wa}" slanting into the water, up which the boats are
hoisted by a Avinch. The towers are ninety-five feet above the
sea. The Ughts, classed as of the third order, are seen fifteen
miles away. The rock where the towers stand is fifty feet
above the sea and presents what seems to be a precipitous
front to the ocean.
Following are the names of the light-house keepers :
Principal Keepers — William Young, Samuel Abbott, Sam-
uel Burgess, John Grant, William Grant, James E. Hall, Mer-
ton E. Tolman, Charles G. Dyer.
Assistant Keepers — Isaac Grant, John Grant, jr., Jarvis
Grant, Mary Grant, N. Perry, E. Abbott, William Stanley,
T. A. Wallace, L. Norwood, A. A. Norton, George A. Lewis,
Charles Burgess, Elmer Holbrook, Harold Hutchins, G. C.
Wallace, J. H. Upton, A. M. Mitchell, G. W. C. Studley, George
D. Lee, Frank O. Hilt.
Many deeds of heroism and adventure could be written of
the keepers of the Rock and their families since the light was
first established. The following incident taken from the Cen-
tury Magazine of June, 1897, is among the most interesting:
''Several of the storms that have whirled over Matinicus
Rock have tried the fortitude of the little band of faithful watch-
ers upon it. One of these watchers, Abby Burgess, has become
famous in our light-house annals, not only for long service, but
also for bravery displayed on various occasions. Her father
was keeper of the Rock from 1853 to 1861. In January, 1856,
when she was seventeen years old, he left her in charge of the lights
while he crossed to Matinicus Island. His wife was an invalid,
his son was away on a cruise, and his other four children were
little girls. The following day it began to ''breeze up;" the
wind increased to a gale, and soon developed into a storm almost
as furious as that which carried away the tower on Minot's
Ledge in 1851. Before long the seas were sweeping over the
rock. Down among the boulders was a chicken-coop which
GEMS OF THE OCEAN
Abby feared might be carried away. On a lonely ocean out-
post like Matinicus Rock, a chicken is regarded with affectionate
interest, and Abby, solicitous for the safety of the little coop,
waited her chance, and when the seas fell off a little, rushed
knee-deep through the swirling water, and rescued all but one
of the chickens. She had hardly closed the door of the dwelling
behind her when a sea, breaking over the rock, brought down
the old cobblestone house with a crash.
''While the storm was at its height, the waves threatened the
granite dwelling, so that the family had to take refuge in the
towers for safety; and here they remained, with no sound to
greet them from without but the roaring of the wind around the
lanterns, and no sight but the sea sheeting over the rock. Yet
through it all the lamps were trimmed and lighted. Even after
the storm abated, the reach between the rock and Matinicus
Island was so rough that Capt. Burgess could not return until
four weeks later.
"In 1861 Capt. Burgess retired from Matinicus, Capt. Grant
and his family succeeding him. And now the grim old Avave-
rent rock became the scene of as pretty a romance as could
be devised. A son of Capt. Grant had been appointed assistant
to his father, and Capt. Burgess had left Abby on the rock to
instruct the new comers. Young Grant proved a very apt
pupil — so apt that he was soon able not only to take care of the
lights, buc also to persuade his instructress to let him take care
of her. She became his wife and his helpmate in a double
sense, for not long after their marriage she was appointed an
assistant keeper. When she was married she had lived on the
rock eight years, and she remained there until 1875 when her
husband was appointed keeper and she assistant keeper, of
the hght on White Head, an island separated from the main-
land only by a narrow channel. Isaac H. Grant, who married
Abby Burgess, holds a silver medal from the United States gov-
ernment for rescuing two men from drowning while he was
keeper at White Head."
GEMS OF THE OCEAN
^"T^ HE nearest land to the Rock is Criehaven, a much larger
^ I island, formerly known as Ragged Island on account of
Si^/ its rugged appearance. Until 1896 it was a part of Matin-
icus, when it was incorporated as a separate plantation. In this
same year a steamer began making semi-weekly trips and a
postoffice was established with Horatio Crie as Postmaster,
who was succeeded by his brother Eben Crie, the present post-
master. The island was formerly owned by Henry Brook-
man, a native of Sweden, who purchased it from the Indians,
and the late Robert F. Crie bought it of him in 1879. It com-
prises about three hundred acres — one-fifth of which is owned
by Mrs. Fred Rhodes, a daughter of Mr. Crie. The resident
population during the winter is about fifty, in the summer time
it is much larger, as Criehaven is fast becoming a popular sum-
GEMS OF THE OCEAN
One of the chief attractions of the place is "Hillside Farm"
owned b}^ Fred S. Rhodes, who with his brothers is engaged in an
extensive grocery l)usiness in Boston where they now run
four large stores. In 1914 Mr. Rhodes will retire from business
and devote his entire time to making Criehaven one of the most
attractive summer resorts in this section. He has already
erected several fine cottages which are equipped with all the
modern con^'^eniences, and has completed one of the most ap-
proved artesian w^ells to be found in this vicinity. It is 216
feet deep, of six-inch bore in the solid ledge, and with the large
wind-mill and tank which holds 10,000 gallons is capable of
supplying the whole island with never failing pure water. The
drilling of the well alone cost $1300, the work being done by
Turner & Savage and the tanking and piping by E. E. Jame-
son of Warren. The grounds about "Hillside Farm" are laid
out in a charming manner, the walks being beautified on either
side bv flowers of choice varieties.
GEMS OF THE OCEAN
On the bluff looking toward Matinicus is the Haines cottage,
which is certainly a novel site for an artist. It is attractively
constructed commanding a fine view of the ocean and many
other points of interest.
There is a neat little school-house on the island in which
religious services are held every Sunday.
Among the industries are farming, poultry and sheep-
raising. About three hundred sheep are owned by Eben W.
Crie who is also proprietor of the general store. The chief
industry is fishing. The fishermen are prosperous and make a
good living, most of them owning their own homes which are
in attractive locations. They are also of the most ingenious
nature many of them building their own motor boats, which
are handsomely modeled. Peter Mitchell, a Dane, is a skillful
boat builder. He has followed the fishing business on this
island for the past twenty years. Before settling on Criehaven
he was with the Red Star Line for three years, having crossed
the Atlantic forty-five times.
The steamer "W. O. Butman," commanded by Captain
STEAMER W. G. BLTMAN
Butman, makes three round trips per week from Rockland to
Matinicus & Criehaven between May 1 and November 1, and
GEMS OF THE OCEAN
two trips per week during the winter. Efforts are now being
made to secure appropriations from the government for building
a breakwater to protect the boats and wharves along the shore
from the violence of the sea.
On February 2, 1908, a great storm occurred which carried
away the steamboat w^harf and did much damage to the fisher-
men, destroying nearly all their lobster traps and fishing gear.
The following season a substantail steamboat wharf was built.
Dr. Edwin W. Gould, who remained at Criehaven several
months during the winter of 1900, on locating in Rockland to
practice his profession established a carrier pigeon service be-
tween the Island of Criehaven and his office. This was the
pioneer attempt to utilize carrier pigeons for the relief of the
sick, and attracted world wide attention as inquiries relating
to this novel service were received by Dr. Gould from many
different points, one from far away New Zealand. The carrier
pigeons were cared for at Criehaven by Mr. Horatio D. Crie's,
family and at the time of Capt. Robert Crie's last sicknesss
when a fierce storm was raging in consequence of which all
communication with the Main was cut off, a carrier pigeon was
sent on its sad mission arriving at the home loft in about one
hour from time of liberation; a tiny note, brought by the ex-
hausted bird gave the world the news of the Grey Angel's visit
to the Crie family.
With the dangerous calling of the inhabitants, all being
fishermen, there have been very few deaths by drowning.
About the time of Robert Crie's demise, Capt. Albert Hall
started in his sloop boat for the Main and nothing was ever
seen or heard from him again and a few years later Ed. Hig-
gins went to pull his lobster traps and failed to return and noth-
ing was given up by the waters to give a clue to his fate.
10 GEMS OF THE OCEAN
I (Captain ^Vbcvt JtaU |
CAPT. Albert Hall went to Tenants Harbor from Criehaven
October 3, 1900, in his sloop boat "Wild Rose ' 'and left Ten-
ants Harbor on the return trip about 8:30 a. m. Friday, October
5, with six bushels of clams on board and was never heard from.
While it was foggy and somewhat stormy, and he had no com-
pass in his boat, it seems probable that his death was more
likely due to sickness and subsequent shipwreck resulting from
inability to manage his boat, rather than to stormy weather,
as he complained about trouble with his head before leaving
Tenants Harbor. He had no small boat with him and the
sloop might have struck on one of the sunken ledges and he lost
his life by drowning, but this would not seem probable unless
he had become unconscious or weak from illness or unless there
was a thick fog, as he knew the coast well.
On June 17, 1901 when Judson Young of Matinicus was haul-
ing his lobster traps some of them got caught in the rigging of
Capt. Hall's sloop and the mast and main boom were hauled
up by Matinicus fishermen. This was near the 'TJoombs Spot"
about two miles west southwest of Ragged Island. Afterwards
about eight feet of the boat's hull, her stem, bow sprit, gaff and
rigging were hauled up and as there is about twenty fathoms
of water at the place where these portions of the craft were
found it was thought that the boat must have gone to pieces
somewheres else, in shoaler water, and this much of her been
carried out into deeper water.
GEMS OF THE OCEAN 11
Capt. Albert Hall was l^orn in Hope, Maine, April 4, 1831.
His i^arents were Ezekial Hall and Jane (Kendall) Hall. While
he was quite young they moved to Rockland. He commenced
following the sea in early manhood and had the command of
several vessels. He married in 1853, Frances, daughter of
Dodge Bowers, of Camden. They had three children, William
Herbert (who became a successful business man) of Providence,
Rhode Island, Mary Frances (who died young) and Miss Alice
J. Hall (who resides in Boston). After retiring from the sea
Capt. Hall was in business in East Boston, Mass., for some
years. On March 29, 1892, he purchased a farm at West Rock-
port, November 2, 1896, preferring a life near the ocean to one
in the country, he sold his farm and engaged in the fishing busi-
ness at Criehaven. He built two cottages and continued to re-
side there until his death, in October, 1900, (elsewhere men-
tioned). He was a member of the Baptist church in Rockport
and was much interested in Sunday school and religious services.
Through his generosity the Sunday school at Criehaven was
given the use of a nice organ.
Capt. Hall was much respected by all who knew him, was
tax collector of Criehaven at the time of his death, and of con-
siderable business ability. He was a good, honest man and
12 GEMS OF THE OCEAN
qr> OBERT F. Crie was bom at Matinicus, January 11, 1826,
/ \ the son of John Crie and SaUy (Emery) his wife. He
married Harriet A. Hall, November 23, 1848. She was the
daughte-i of George Washington Hall, and was born at Camden,
October 30, 1829, her mother's name being Elizabeth Burgess.
Five children were born to them as follows: John Emery,
born May 12, 1857, married Nancy Dunton; Eben William,
born December 24, 1854, unmarried; Charlotte Jameson, born
March 23, 1858, married Fred S. Rhodes; Frank Leslie, born
July 17, 1862, married Madge Remy; Horatio Dunton, born
July 9, 1870, married Mabel Packard. These children are all
living, as is their mother, but Mr. Crie died June 25, 1901.
In the winter of 1848 Robert Frank Crie and wife, nee Har-
riet A. Hall, went to Ragged Island and started housekeeping
in a log camp. Through the winter he cut and hewed the tim-
ber for a house and in the spring of '49 erected the Crie homestead
Several additions have been made to the house since then.
They lived together there fifty-three years, all of their
married life. Five children were born to them.
They were a contented, prosperous family; in 1879 he owned
the whole island. In 1896, all of the children with their wives
and husbands and their children, lived there too.
Mr. Crie was a conscientious, kind hearted gentleman, honest
in all his dealings and always thoughtful for the welfare of others.
Besides being engaged in fishing, sheepraising and farming,
Mr. Crie for many years kept a general store at Criehaven.

GEMS OF THE OCEAN
r^^HE largest and most important of this group of islands is
Matinicus, situated 18 miles south bj^ east from Rockland,
and 60 miles east from Portland. It is nearly two and one-half
miles long and about a mile wide. On the western side the land
is low with beautiful, sloping green fields and would remind
one somewhat, on approaching, of the out-lying islands which
GEMS OF THE OCEAN 17
are called '^keys", along the Wast India coast. The eastern
shore is rugged and bold, with a picturesque little harbor —
Wheaton's Island forming the southeastern side — a shallow
passage separating it from the main island. The shore is lined
with cottages, fish houses and wharves. The breakwater is
on the northern side. This part of the island is quite well wooded
with evergreen trees.
At this time there are about 50 families scattered all over
the island, comprising a population of nearh' 200. The natives
are thrifty and industrious and own pleasant and comfortable
homes, which are well kept and furnished with the modern con-
Most of the inhabitants are engaged in lobster fishing but
considerable attention is paid to farming. There is also some
commercial business and boat-building. A large store owned
by Henry Young & Co. is well stocked with supplies to meet the
general needs of the people. The present proprietor is W. Scott
Young, the genial postmaster. The Gorton-Pew Co. of Glouces-
ter, Mass., carries on an extensive business in buying and ship-
ping fish. Bradbury Young and Edwin H. Ripley are boat-
builders and mechanics. Herbert Libby, formerly of Rockland,

little building where he furnishes oil suits and other supplies for
lobster fishermen. George Belcher, machinist, former resident
of Lynn, Mass., is kept busy most of the time repairing gasoline
engines and other machiner3^ Marshall Ripley is cooper, farmer
and lobster-fisherman, always busy and ready to assist all who
come his way. ^
GEMS OF THE OCEAN
The Government has recently built a breakwater at a cost
of $13,000, which is a great protection for the many fine boats in
the harbor. As fine a fleet of boats as can be found in any har-
bor is owned by Matinicus fishermen, the aggregate worth of
which is doubtless not less than $30,000. The staunch little
steamer W. G. Butman carries the mail, passengers and freight,
making the round trips on the same days as at Criehaven.
The first regular mail service was established in 1852, by
Lewis Ames, schooner Leader, who ran mail one year — dis-
continued because route did not pay. Re-established in 1874
by Capt. Henry Philbrook, schooner Everett, ran five years.

Very little has been written concerning the early history
of the island. The first records show that in 1728, William
Vaughn, one of the most prominent merchants of New England,
then residng at Damariscotta, came to Matinicus and established
a fishing station, employing several vessels. There are still
landmarks on the island, said to be the place where his build-
ings once stood, also the remains of an old wharf, the scene of
the early activities. These fishing stations were abandoned
and we can learn nothing more relating to the local history until
the year when Ebenezer Hall, the first settler, removed from
Portland to Matinicus. Following is the full account of his
massacre by the Indians, with genealogy of the family.

/^BENEZER Hall lived at what is called the Back Cove, Port-
^-^ land, Me. There he raised three childrn, two daughters and
one son Ebenezer by name. The girls married. One wedded a
man by the name of Proctor, the other a man by the name of
Allen and moved back into the country in the town of Fal-
Shortly after this the mother died and Mr. Hall married a
wddow by the name of Green. She had three children, one
son by the name of Daniel and two daughters. The boy was 14
years of age and the girls 9 and 7. Mr Hall then with his family
moved to the Island of Matinicus, it being at the close of the
French and English war, at which time the English took the
Canadas and Nova Scotia from the French. He then built a
stone house which he could use as a fort for protection from the
Indians. The French, who were aUied with the Indians, of-
fered a bounty for the scalp of every white man they killed,
whereupon a band of six Indians went to the Island and camped
about thirty feet south of the house between two granite ledges,
on a plat of grass about eight feet wide.
Then they besieged the dwelling. Mr Hall barred the door
to keep them out and was obliged to stay there nearly a week,
surrounded l^y them. In their determination to capture him
and his family, they sent fire arrows into the roof and burned
it. As fast as it took fire Mr. Hall would take a pole and push
off the burning rafters so they would not fall within the walls of
GEMS OF THE OCEAN 21
the house and at the same time his son shooting with a gun
whenever an opportunity offered. At last the amunition of
the Indians was nearly exhausted and in their desire to lengthen
out their supply, they cut their lead bullets in two and as a decoy
one of the Indians, who had in his gun the last half bullet, went
up back of the house and took a position overlooking it and
prepared to discharge his gun at Mr. Hall whenever he should
show his head above the wall of the house. The other IncUans
made what noise they could, walking over the pebbly shore and
hauling their canoe after them. Mr. Hall hearing the noise
that they were making and thinking that they had given up
their hope and were leaving the island, climbed up and looked
over the side of the house facing the shore, when the Indian
back of the house brought his gun to his shoulder and shot him
through the head and he fell back into the room dead. When
his wife reahzed that he was killed and she left without a pro-
tector, she screamed for quarter and the Indians hearing her,
rushed up from the beach and said "Your Sannah (being in-
terpreted husband) will not give any quarter." She said ''my
husband is dead." They immecUately broke in the door and
proceeded to bind the mother and the two girls, removing the
scalp of Mr. Hall. The boy Daniel had escaped by the back
window and hidden in the woods back of the house in the under-
brush. The Indians took the mother and the two girls in their
canoes and after sinking one of the fishing boats that lay in the
harbor proceeded to Canada. The boy after remaining hidden
several hours and feeling satisfied that the IncUans had given
up the hunt for him and had gone emerged from his hiding place
and looking around upon the situation, espied a fishing vessel
lying at anchor ofi" in the bay. Finding half a canoe he paddled
off from the shore and when he had proceeded a proper distance
from the shore, he took his paddle and placing his coat upon it,
signalled to the vessel. Seeing him they came to his aid and
ascertaining his wants, came on shore and helped him bury his
22 GEMS OF THE OCEAN
father. He then returned to the schooner and sailed to the
Fox Islands, where the schooner belonged.
The evening previous to the final attack the Indians Ijuilt
a fire just below the house and proceeded to get their supper.
They took some corn and pounded it in a mortar and then
cooked it. They then emptied it out of the kettle into a large
dish and seated themselves around it and with their spoons all
ate from the dish. Mr. Hall seeing them all busy eating, wanted
to take Daniel and three good guns they had loaded and creed
out of the back window to where he could get in range of them.
There he thought he could kill them all, but his wife in terror
seized him and would not let him go. At the first opportunity
Mrs. Hall made her escape from the Indians and returned to
the Island and later married in Boston. Her two daughters
were still held by the Indians but years afterwards were seen
with them in one of their visits to the island and being recognized
by their brother, he sought an interview, but they had become
so accustomed to the wild life of the forest they declined to take
but little notice of him. The next day he went to have a second
talk with them, hoping to induce them to return to civilized
life but it was of no avail.
In subsequent years Daniel took up and settled on what
is now known as Green Island, lying south of Carver's Harbor.
He married a Miss Young of Old York, a sister of Susannah
Young of the same place. At the time of this murder and the
committing of these outrages by the Indians, Mr. Hall's son
Ebenezer, was aAvay fishing in one of his father's boats
in the vicinity of Halifax, N. S. When he returned he found
his father was dead and the island forsaken. He then proceeded
to Boston with his fare of fish and on the passage up he put
into Old York for a harbor. There he formed the acquaintance
of Susannah Young, whom he afterwards married. They came
to Pemaquid and lived in the block house instead of returning
to Matinicus on account of the French and Indian war and the
GEMS OF THE OCEAN 23
hostilities against the whites. While there Mrs. Hall and
another woman while driving cows from the pasture were fol-
lowed by the Indians and barely escaped death from the bullets.
After peace was declared Mr. Hall and wife returned to
Matinicus and lived there many years and raised fifteen children
their names being: Hannah, born September 11, 1759; Mary,
born August 25, 1761; Susannah, born May 10, 1763; Jane, born
March 4, 1765; Ebenezer, born February 15, 1767; Margret,

3d, born March 19, 1735, died February 14, 1813, buried on
Matinicus; Susannah Young Hall, his wife, born March 9,
1724, died December 9, 1831. After the death of her husband
she came to live with her son John Hall and is buried in the old
cemetery at the ''Head of the Bay" South Thomaston.
Capt. Hiram Hall is the owner of an iron kettle that was
left on Matinicus in 1757 by his great great grandfather Ebene-
zer Hall, who was killed by the Indians.
Ebenezer Hall, 3d, died February 14, 1814, age 78 years,
11 months, 9 days. His father Ebenzer, 2d, was killed by the
Indians on Matinicus in 1757. His wife, Mrs. Hall, a lady of
remarkable beauty and many accomplishments, was captured
with her two daughters, after her husband had been killed. They
were carried to Canada, where they were separated. Mrs. Hall
was eventually ransomed. But this unhappy woman, notwith-
standing her life long endeavors, could never obtain the least
knowledge of her children or their fate. The father of the above
Ebenezer was probably one of three brothers that came from
England. He was a lieutenant in the English army and was
present in the battle of Mines at the siege of Louisburg and was
wounded and died at Annapolis, Nova Scotia.
The above was taken from Abbott's History of Maine.

When Ebenezer Hall lived on Matinicus, a great many
years ago, there lived in the family a girl by the name of Dorcas
Young, a sister to Hall's wife. Joseph Greene was paying his
addresses to Dorcas at the time. One night Hall invited some
fishermen up to the house, so he said to Greene, '^ Joe, don't you
and Dorcas want to get married?" ''I don't know," says Joe.
He started for the cow yard where Dorcas was milking the cows,
and asked her if she thought they had better get married, that
night. ''Why Joe," says Dorcas, ''I have not got any wed-
ding gown." ''Never mind the gown," says Joe, so they went
into the house, Dorcas washed herself, put on a clean apron,
stood up, and they were married, there being a justice of the
peace among the crowd.
The descendants of Ebenezer Hall, who was killed by the
Indians, formed a reunion association in 1906 and have raised
mcney and purchased a bronze tablet, which will be set in the
rock at or near the spot where Mr. Hall was killed, near what
is now Henry Young and Company's store. The stone which
formed the base of the chimney of Hall's house is located in
front of the store and the ledge behind which the Indians were
concealed is l)ut a few yards distant.
The tablet bears the following inscription:
''Ebenezer HaU. The first white settler on Matinicus Isle,
Maine, killed by the Indians, June 6, 1757."

ON the opposite page is printed a picture of the beautiful
Uttle church, which was built in 1905 and dedicated in June,
1906. The following account of the dedicatory service and
history of the growth of the church during the past century is
taken in part from the Courier-Gazette:
The exercises of dedication consisted of an invocation by
Rev. E. M. Cousins of Thomaston; responsive reading, led by
Rev. I. A. Flint of Warren; sermon by W. B. Hague, text John
11 :16, '^ And they shall become one flock, one shepherd. " Theme,
''Christian Unity"; dedicatory prayer. Rev. L. D. Evans of
Camden; historical and financial statements; addresses by
Rev. Charles Harbutt of Portland, secretary of the Maine
Missionary Society; Rev. J. H. Quint of Rockland, and each of
the ministers named above. These parts of the services were
interspersed with hearty singing and all closed with singing
''God be with you till we meet again"; and the benediction by
Secretar}^ Harbutt. The house and equipment seem to be
complete for every use of people and church even to the beautiful
aluminum individual communion set, a gift from a member of
the Eliot church of Lowell, Mass.
Matinicus has no traceable written record of an early
church. In the memory of her oldest inhabitants such a church
exists as a more or less vague reality and in the record of the
Baptist church of Rockland it appears that a branch of that
church was organized on Matinicus Island in the year 1808.
Nor do we know of any resident pastor up to about the year
1850, when the Methodist Home Missionary Society sent one
Abram Plummer, who lived and preached here several years,

served acceptably for a numl)er of years, and he in turn by one
John Plummer, a son of Abram Plumnier.
Then again for many years the island was pastorless and
without preaching, save as from time to time some journeying
pastor might take his way thither.
But during none of these years was God left without wit-

In the year 1889 was organized on Matinicus a Christian
Endeavor society, which with the Sunday school held together
the religious life of the island up to the time of the organization
of this present church in May, 1904.
In the year 1897 the M. M. S. took up the work and sent
student preachers for several summers to all of whom the island
is indebted for much earnest labor. At about this time, several
services were held by an evangeUst of the Advent Christian
church, Mrs. Clapp, now Mrs. Quinn of Gray, Maine, and the
good work accomplished through her efforts made a deep and
lasting impression on the communit3^ Then came a time
when there was felt a need of work of a more aggressive charac-
ter. The M. M. S. was acquainted with this felt need and,
alert to supply it, sent its general missionary. Rev. W. B. Hague,
to whose coming under God we largely owe all that we are and
have as a church to-day. He first came to the island March, 22,
1904. On May 8th was completed the organization of the
church; on May 16 it was constituted a body corporate under
the laws of the state; was given formal recognition by a council
of the neighboring churches on June 2; and on June 8 was re-
ceived into the fellowship of Lincoln conference.
The church entered upon its second year bright with hope
and promise when Dr. J. M. Greene of Lowell, Mass., volun-
teering his services to the M. M. S. was assigned to Matinicus.
But in a brief space of time, just when all Matinicus had come
to reverence him and when the church recognized the possibili-
ties before it under his leadership, God in His mysterious provi-
dence said 'Hhis work among you is done." Now we wait for
him whom God shall send to continue his work.
Simultaneous with a movement toward church organiza-
tion was a movement toward a church building and in the au-
tumn of the same year was begun the soliciting of financial aid
for this purpose. So heartily came the responses that July
11th of the following year saw begun the foundation of the
GEMS OF THE OCEAN
church buildmg which at the beginning of the new year stood
complete and which with grateful hearts we dedicate to-day.
Since the above church history was written, Rev. Wm. H.
McBride has been called as pastor, serving the church faithfully
for several years. His successor was Rev. James H. Peardon, a
talented and popular preacher. He resigned the pastorate in
the fall of 1912. The church is hoping to call a pastor soon. A
great opportunity for Christian work is presented in this worthy

After his marriage he settled at Matinicus, the home of his
parents, where he was engaged in farming, curing fish, and
trading. He was very successful in all his business under-
takings. Energetic, straightforward, honest in all his dealings,
he built up a thriving trade at the place of business now occu-
pied by his son W. Scott Young.
A large stone wharf that is now used as a steamboat land-
ing, and occupied in the summer season by a Gloucester fish
company, who are doing an extensive business, was built b}^

Reuben Fred Crie was born at Matinicus June 5, 1841, a son
of Reuben L. and Mercy (Young) Crie. When a young man he
came to Rockland and clerked in H. H. Crie's hardware store.
When the Civil War broke out he returned to the island, where
he was married August 10, 1862, to Floretta Tolman. Three
days later he enlisted as private in the 2d Maine battery and
went directly to the front. He went into an engagement on the
morning after his arrival and was with the battery in all its
fighting until June 16, 1865, when he was discharged with the
rank of 2d lieutenant. He was a brave soldier and never shirked
a duty no matter how arduous or unpleasant it might be. When
the war was over Lieut. Crie resumed his duties as clerk in H.
H. Crie's store, where he was admitted to partnership one year
later. The firm subsequently received another addition in
the person of R. Y. Crie. The subject of this sketch sold his
interest in the store about 1873 and for the ensuing two years was
again a resident of Matinicus. When he once more returned
to the mainland it was to establish a grocery and fishermen's
supplies store in Jones block. J. T. Hall of Matinicus was
taken into partnership sometime after and the firm removed to
the store in Glover block now occupied by the W. H. Glover
Co. The firm at this time was known as R. Fred Crie & Co.
Mr. Hall retired in the early 90s and Mr. Crie himself bade fare-
well to mercantile life in 1894. That year he was appointed
inspector of the Rockland breakwater job, which was then less
34 GEMS OF THE OCEAN
than one-quarter done. For several seasons he was inspector of
the Bar Harbor breakwater job, but was again transferred to
Rockland. He had oversight, also, of dredging operations in
the harbors of Rockland, Thomaston, Camden and New Harbor.
His last active work was in the summer and fall of 1907 when
he inspected the Bar Harbor and Newburyport breakwater
jobs. It was while at New Harbor in 1906 that he was critically
ill with heart trouble, and he had looked forward to an early
death from that cause. About a week before his death Mr.
Crie was taken ill with what seemed to be an attack of pleurisy.
It developed into pneumonia, which was the primary cause of
his death, March 12, 1908.
He was a most excellent citizen, brave and loyal in his
defense of his country during its darkest hours, upright and
square dealing in all his business transactions, and capable and
conscientious in the discharge of the high trust which the govern-
ment imposed upon him. ^'You cannot say anything too good
about him,'' is the way one of his old Grand Army comrades
put it, and the friends who knew and loved him will say amen
to that sentiment.
Mrs. Crie was born September 10, 1842, at Matinicus, she
being the daughter of Isaac Tolman and Susan (Crie) his wife.
She now lives with her son Edwin Hall Crie, who was born in
