The history of the town of Gray begins with the granting 
of a township to Thomas Gray, and others, in the year 1735. 
The traot of hind selected by these men was called New Boston 
after about 1^56, which name it bore until the date of its incor- 
poration, 1778, when the name of Gray was taken in honor of 
the early land proprietor. 

Settlement was begun in 1750. In 1756 the proprietors 
made a report of the progress of the settlement to the legisla- 
ture, in which they stated that they had laid out 63 lots of 60 
acres each for settling lots, and built a meeting-house, erected 
36 dwelling-houses and cleared a part of the lands, as required 
by the conditions of the grant; but that they had been put to 
very great expense and suffering. 

The settlers lived in constant fear of hostile Indians. On 
May 17, 1755, the settlement was surprised by a large number 
of savages who destroyed the cattle, burned the meeting-house 
and all the dwelling-houses and obliged the settlers to flee to 
places of safety. 

After peace was concluded with the Indians, some of the 
inhabitants returned and erected a new meeting-house, as well 
as a block-house, 50x25 feet, around which they erected a 
garrison one hundred feet long and seventy-five feet wide. 
This was supplied with military stores.

Thomas, the father of Moses and Jeremiah Twitchell, came 
from Westboro, Mass., about 1762, and kept a camp for 
British marines and workmen engaged in cutting masts and 
hauling them to the falls below. In 1764 his family was 
settled here with him, and they may have come at the same 
time he came. Maj, Jabez Mathews and Wm. Webster oame 
soon after. 

The re- settlement was continued by John J en ks, William and 
Joel Stevens, Daniel Cummings, Daniel Hunt, Thomas Twitch- 
ell, John Humphrey and Capt. Jonas Stevens, whose daughter, 
Kuth, was born in 1764. She afterwards married James 
Doughty. The first male child born in the town was Daniel 
Cummings, born October 6, 1766. He was the grandfather of 
Samuel Cummings living one mile north of Gray village. The 
bond under which Jethro Starbird received his land, in 1768, 
required that on or before the 12th of April, 1769, he should 
have built "a good dwelling-house 18 feet square, have at 
least 6 acres of land cleared and brought to English grass tit 
for mowing," and shall pay one-sixtieth part of the expense of 
building a meeting-house and settling a Protestant minister 
Samuel Hawes and Jabez Hatch were contractors for the pro- 

John Barber, John Wilson, James Russell, Daniel Haney, 
Mark Merrill, Sergt. Samuel Thompson, Lieut. David Small, 
John Nash, David Libby, Gideon Ramsdell, Jedediah Cook, 
and Joseph and Samuel Webster settled previous to 1780.

Gray, the thirty-ninth town of Maine, was incorporated 
June 19, 1778. The first election was held at the meeting- 
house which stood in the street near the present town-house, 
July 13, 1778, under a warrant issued by the Hon. Enoch 
Freeman, J. P., to Jabez Matthews, who was chosen moderator 
of the meeting. David Clark was chosen Town Clerk; 
William Webster, Daniel Libby, Daniel Cummings, Selectmen 
and Assessors; David Orne, Treasurer; Nathan Merrill, Thomas 
White, Richard Hayden, Committee of Safety: Joseph Weeks, 
Constable; Daniel Libby, Jeremiah Hobbs, Church Wardens; 
Nathan Merrill, Tithing-Man; John Barber, John Morse, 
William Webster, Richard Hayden, Surveyors to work on the 
roads; Daniel Cummings, Fence-Viewer; Jethro Starbird, 
Robert York, Field-Drivers; Elijah Jordan, David Hunt, Asa 
Libby, Joseph Merrill, Hog-Drivers; George Doughty, Sexton; 
Daniel Libby, Pound-Keeper; John Nash, Surveyor of Lumber; 
David Orne, Sealer of Weights and Measures. £30 was voted 
to furnish the meeting-house, $500 for highways and $3 per 
day fixed as wages for a man or yoke of oxen; £4 was appro- 
priated for a public school and $50 to build a pound. 

In 1779 prices were regulated by vote, making a day's 
work 48s.; imported potatoes and turnips, £l-10s.; leaf tobacco, 
12s. per potmd; victuals, 12s. a meal; and "licker, 12s. a mug!" 
In 1780, $22.50 a day was allowed laborers on public roads. 
Representatives in General Court were seldom chosen, unless 
they could volunteer to pay their own expenses.

The church, which was erected soon after the second settle- 
ment was made, was used as a town-house for many years. The 
present brick town-house was erected by David Carey, at a cost 
of $1200, and first used March 5, .1838, when "church and 
state dissolved." This building remains practically the same 
today as at the time it was put up. It is located in the corner 
of the large cemetery.

The first commercial industry established in this town was 
that of cutting masts by the British marines. Soon after the 
second settlement was begun a mill was erected at the falls, a 
short distance below the old factory, and it was here that the 
important industry of lumbering began, to which the pioneers 
gave so much attention during the days when there were ex- 
tensive forests of valuable pine and other lumber to draw from- 
This mill was opei*ated as early as 1778 by Jabez Mathews. 
Saw mills sprung up in all parts of the town and continued 
extensive operations for many years. 

The greatest individual industry ever operated within the 
borders of the town of Gray was the Falmouth Woolen Mills, 
established about 1800 by Samuel Mayall, an Englishman. He 
came to this locality and settled on the river, built a dam, and 
the two brick woolen mills which are said to have been the first 

Gray, Maine 11 

woolen mills ever operated in the United States. At first he 
manufactured only in a small way. One of his methods was to 
buy wool from the farmers throughout all the surrounding 
section, exchanging manufactured cloth. This method must 
have been appreciated by the busy housewives to whom in 
those days generally fell the laborious task of spinning and 
weaving for a large family. After his death Wilson & Thomas 
carried on the business. Beatty and Alpine was the next firm 
to operate the plant, and later William Beatty carried on the 
business. Nothing has been done here for many years. One 
of the mills stands complete, the other was burned a long time 

Samuel Mayall, son of the founder of these mills, was 
Gray's only representative to Congress, serving in the 33d., in 
1853, as a Democrat. Among the measures he introduced was 
one providing for the purchase of the slaves; the bill was killed 
as being enormously expensive. 

The first edged-tool maker here is said to have been Jonas 
Doughty. Theophilus and Woodbury Stimson were plow makers 
and axe makers. They engaged in these lines of business for a 
long period of years, during the last of which they manufactured 
axes only. Leonard Curamings was engaged in manufacturing 
edged-tools for some years after learning the trade with Jonas 

Another early industry, as testified to by many substantial 
brick buildings in town, was brick-making. 

A tannery was established in the town in 1800, by Stephen 
Furbish. In 1856 this was sold to David Cummings who 

12 Gray, Maine 

operated it for several years, when it was finally discontinued. 

The chief occupation of the men of Gray at the present 
time is the cultivation of their generally fertile farms. Some 
stock is raised and many of the farmers sell their cream to the 
creameries located in the surrounding towns. 

The mechanical industries are mostly saw mills, of which 
there are two at Gray Village, and one each at East Gray, 
North Gray, West Gray, Dry Mills, and Douglasville; there is 
also a grist mill at the village, and two at East Gray. At East 
Gray Goff Bros, are operating a brick yard. About the middle 
of the last century much attention was given to the manufacture 
of shook and staves. 

J. T. Merrill's steam saw and grist mill was established by 
him in 18S3 as a shingle and grist mill operated in connection 
with his store. Mr. Merrill put in a board saw about 1888 
which has been in steady operation until the present winter. 
Mr. Merrill intends to open the mill again in the spring, con- 
tinuing the saw and grist business. 

Frank N. Douglass' saw and stave mill, was built by the 
present owner a few years ago. This is a steam mill, employ- 
ing an average of 12 men during the year. At present staves 
are being manufactured largely, but this is primarily a long 
lumber mill. 

The sawmill at West Gray was built and run by R. A. 
Allen, and has done good business until the death of Mr. Allen 
two years ago. The store at this place was run for 60 years by 
Mr. Allen, who also served as postmaster for many years. 

Gray, Maine 13 

The Dry Mills steam mill was built in 1845 by Joseph 
Libby, he was (succeeded by his son, the present owner, who 
took the business and operated it until about a year ago when 
his son-in-law took the business. Around 450,000 feet of 
lumber is manufactured each winter, employing 25 men in 
both the mill and lumber camps. There is a shingle mill 


Mr. Libby also owns the mill at North Gray, which is 
operated by water power. This mill is under the supervision 
of Mr. Cummings, and manufactures all kinds of lumber, turning 
out about 20,000 feet a week. 

The saw mill at Douglasville, (or Suckerville,) was built in 
1859 as a steam and water power mill, but is now operated 
entirely by steam. "In 1896 this mill was burned. It was at 
once -rebuilt by Mr. M. C. Morrill, the owner; this new mill 
was burned before being completed, when Mr. Morrill put up 
the present temporary mill which he contemplates replacing 
with a larger and a permanent one in the near future. 


The first meeting house in town erected by the first party 
of settlers, is thought to have stood in the north-eastern part of 
the town. This was burned by the Indians. The second house 
of worship was built soon after the second settlement was 
begun, and stood on or near the site of the present homestead 
of Eugene Hall. 

The first church organization was established in compliance 
with the requirements of the land-grant, in August, 1774. This 

14 Gray, Maine 

was of the Congregational order. Rev. Samuel Nash, a graduate 
of Brown University, was the first pastor, being ordained in 
June, 1775. He remained until September, 1782. The second 
meeting-house erected was never finished and in the winter the 
meetings were held in Joseph Doughty's house. The church 
was sold to Daniel Haney in 1790, for £4. The old church 
which stood in the street near the town-house was built the 
preceding year and stood until torn down in 1832. Rev. Saml. 
Perley, a Presbyterian, became pastor in 1784. He was dis- 
charged on the dissolution of the Salem Presbytery, in 1791, 
after which the church became scattered. In October, 1803, a 
council was called, which, finding but two male members, pro- 
ceeded to reorganize the church as a Congregational body. 
Rev. Danl. Weston was ordained pastor that year. Rev. Saml. 
Peckham succeeded Mr. Weston in 1825, and was discharged 
in 1830. During his pastorate the fourth church was erected, 
and dedicated in 1828. 

The subsequent pastors were Rev. Thos. Riggs, 1831 to 
1833; Rev. Calvin White, 1833-37; Rev. Nathan W. Sheldon, 
1839-43; Rev. Allen Lincoln, 1845-59; Rev. Jas. P. Richard- 
son, 1859-62; Rev. Ebenezer Bean, 1863-73; Rev. Edw. P. 
Eastman, 1874-75; Rev. Herbert R. Howe, 1876; Rev. E. Bean, 
1877-93; Rev. Henry O. Thayer, 1893-95; Rev. Edgar M. 
Cousins, 1896-98; Rev. Herbert L. McCann, 1899-1904. 

A centennial celebration was held last year, commemorat- 
ing the one-hundredth aniversary of the organization of this 

The present handsome church edifice was dedicated Jan. 
2, 1901. This was built at a cost of around $7,000, and is a

fine modern building. This is a strong, vital, evangelical 
church, that stands for the best life of the community. It has a 
membership of 80 whrch represents the working force of the 
organization. A union Christian Endeavor society is main- 
tained by the young people of this and the Free Baptist 


It was from the pulpit of the church recently demolished 

that Gen. Neal Dow uttered his first speech advocating prohibi- 
tion in the state of Maine. 

A Baptist society was organized in Gray in 1790, consist- 
ing of 21 members. The first preacher of whom we have 
record was Rev. Wm. Merrill, who remained until 1810, 
holding meetings at his house, afterwards the residence of 
Hezekiah Whitney, two miles east of the village. A house of 
worship was erected by the Universalists at Gray in 1832, at a 
cost of $1,500. In 1855 the Free Baptist society bought a half- 
interest in this building, and later obtained complete title. This 
is the church they now occupy. The interior has been extensively 
remodeled, and the church repaired from time to time, and is 
now a neat and comfortable house. A parsonage, situated on 
Greenleaf St., is the property of the society, purchased about 
1860. The present membership is 61 resident, and 25 non- 
resident members. The pastors of this church since 1 850 have 
been Revs. David Newell, Moses Foster, Chas. Bean, Wm. T. 
Smith, 1857; Dexter Waterman, 1861; Moores Cole, 1863; M. 
Ricker, Edwin A. Kish, 1864; J. M. Purkis, 1865; C. Bean, 
1868; Joseph Fobs, 1869; F. Reed, 1874; Wm. T. Smith, 1876 ;

The first Methodist sermon in Gray was preached by Jesse 
Lee, in 1793, in a barn near the Congregational church then 
standing. Rev. Philip Wager formed a class here the same 
year. A society seems to have been formed previous to 1808 
as thirteen men were recorded on the town books in 1807 as 
Methodists. The church was incorporated June 10, 1808. 
Gray became a part of the Readfield circuit on its organization, 
and Rev. Stephen Hull preached there once in two weeks. 
Gray and Windham were made a circuit in 1844. 

A building was erected in West Gray in 1840, and a 
second in the eastern part of the town by a branch styling 
themselves Protestant Methodists. This meeting-house was 
moved to Gray village, rebuilt, and re-dedicated in July, 1869. 
Regular services were held here until about 1881 when they 
were discontinued. In 1896 this church was again moved, this 
time to South Gray, and the charge placed under the pastor of 
the West Cumberland church, with which it has formed a 
circuit since that time. Since its removal the pastors have 
been Revs. W. C. Wentworth, who had the moving done; C. H. 
Abbott, 1897-98; D. Pratt, 1899-1902; W. H. Congdon, 1903, 

still in charge 

We have obtained little data concerning the early Univer- 
salist Bociety in Gray aside from that already noted under the 
Free Baptist church. 

Gray, Maine 17 

The present society was organized in June, 1902, by Miss 
Eleanor B. Forbes, assisted by State Superintendent F. E. Bar- 
ton. There were twelve members, which number has now in- 
creased to fifteen. Miss Forbes began preaching here in May, 
1901, previous to which Rev. Geo. Hamilton had preached 
during the summer for many years. A young peoples' Christian 
Union was organized last July. Services are held in Stimson 
Memorial Hall. 


In 1780 the sum of £350 was voted for the support of 
schools, the town was divided into two districts, and in 1785 
Israel H. Buker was engaged to teach school a year, u at any 
place in town," for £45. He was also elected collector, that 
he might collect his own pay. 

Six schoolhouses were erected between 1793 and 1801. 
Four lots of school land were sold in 1814 for $1,171.25, to 
establish a school fund, the interest of which was $71.25, in 
1878. Appropriations have been: in 1788, £10; 1791, £30; 
1793, £40; 1799, £200; 1820, $400; 1840, $600; 1850, $700; 
1864, $1,100; 1867-72, $2,000; The town comprised 12 districts 
in 1878. Of the 1615 children 460 attended school. 

On April 1, 1902 there were 406 persons in the town be- 
tween the ages of four and twenty-one; of these the largest 
registration was in the spring term when 234 were in attend- 
ance. Thirty weeks of schooling are given each year for which 
the sum of $1,150 was raised in 1902. The figures are praotically 
the same the present year. A graded school is maintained at 
the village, and schools at Dry Mills, North Gray, East Gray, 

18 Gray, Maine 

South Gray, Hunt's Hill, The Field's District, and at West 
Gray. The artistic and modern school building at the village 
was erected in 1902, at a cost of about $2,000. This is fitted 
with improved and modern conveniences and accomodates both 
grades. A new house was erected last fall in the Field's 
district, costing $800. The houses in the other districts are in 
good repair, and the general excellence of the school work 
accomplished is to be commended. 


This magnificent structure, the pride of the town, was 
erected and donated to the town of Gray by Maj. Henry Pen- 
nell, a grandson of Joseph Pennell, Esq., an early settler of the 
town. The building is situated in the village, is a tine brick 
edifice with a clock and bell in its stately tower, and is sur- 
rounded by spacious and well-kept grounds, which are studded 
with many beautiful maples. The building completed cost 
$20,000; library, $3,000; laboratory, $2,000. Major Pennell 
endowed the institution with a fund of $25,000, to be held in- 
tact for its perpetual support. 

The building was begun in 1876, and completed three years 
later. The school was not opened until about the year 1886, 
since which time it haB been in constant operation. Lee Hunt 
was the first principal, remaining fur five years, during which 
time the school became well established as one of the leading 
fitting schools in the state. Succeeding instructors have been: 
Geo. H. Larrabee; W. B. Andrews, live years, now principal of 
Westbrook High School; E. H. Stevens; Clarence W. Pierce, 

Gray, Maine 19 

who remained five years and was succeeded by the present 
principal, Chas. F. Howland, in 1903. Mr. Pierce is now 
principal of Greeley Institute. 

A new laboratory building was erected on the grounds in 
1902, and is a fitting brick structure. This school is a free 
high school to the young men and women of Gray between the 
ages of ten and twenty-five, the sum of $250 being appropriated 
each year by the town, and a like sum received from the state 
for that purpose; this, together with the proceeds from the 
liberal endowment gives the institution ample support, a good 
working library and a liberal amount of physical and chemical 
apparatus for the laboratory. Miss Kate A. Leslie is the present 
teacher of languages, and Miss Mertell K. Snow, of mathematics 
and English. The members of the board of Selectmen are 
trustees ex-officio; together with Hon. M. P. Frank, of Portland; 
Hon. W. H. Vinton, Hon. J. D. Anderson, and Vinton E. 
Frank. M. P. Frank is president, V. E. Frank, secretary. 


The noble Military record of the town of Gray is attested 
to by the many inscriptions found on the head stones of the 
Revolutionary and Civil war soldiers who lie buried in the 
village cemetery. 

Moses Twitched, who probably came here with his father 
about 1762, died in the American Army in Canada in 1775; his 
son bearing the same name was also a soldier in this war. 
Nathan Noble, a settler, was killed in battle, October 7, 1777; 
Jonas Humphrey served under Gen. Arnold, re-enlisted, and 

20 Gray, Maine 

was killed at the battle of White Plains. Ser. Asa Libby, Isaac 
Foster, and Jonathan Hayden all enlisted April 24, 1780, for 
eight months' service. Other veterans of the Revolution who 
settled here were Amaziah Delano, Joseph Allen, Jas. Welch, 
Win. Libby, Samuel Stowell, Jas. Doughty, and Ser. Samuel 
Thompson. 60-pound fines were paid by seventeen drafted men 
to Capt. Stevens, April 24, 1780. 

Other early military men of the town were Maj. Jabez 
Mathews, 1778; Lieut. Win. Webster, 1779; Capt. James 
Stevens, 1780; Lieut. David Small, Maj. Jedediah Cobb, Lieut. 
Robert York, 1786, Capt. Daniel Haney, Capt. Jos. McLellan, 
1790; Capt. Jas. Doughty, 1818; and Col. Mesheck Humphrey. 
Many of these men were familiar figures on the training field 
during militia practice, and doubtless some of them saw service 
in the fight for independence.

Rev. Samuel Perley, the second pastor of the local parish, 
was a graduate of Harvard, and a practicing physician. He 
came to the church in 178*2, remaining until 1791, during which 
time he attended to both the spiritual and physical needs of the 
settlers. Dr. Briggs probably located here about 1796; Peter 
Whitney, 1803; C. H. P. McClellan in 1795, and again from 

22 Gray, Maine 

1825 to 28; Nicholas H. Allen, 1841; J. D. Sturgis; Wm. W. 
Green, 1863-72, died at sea; Chas. L. Holt, 1872-74; F. A. 
Morgan, dentist, 1869-79; A. W. Anderson, 1876, for many 
years; J. F. Newman, 1879; Dr. Chas. Hutchinson, now practic- 
ing in Portland, was here during the early days of his practice. 
There are now three practicing physicians in town. Dr. 
E. T. Andrews came in 1874, since which time he has remained 
in practice. His son, A. M. Andrews completed his studies and 
began with his father two years ago. Dr. Geo. Ellingwood has 
been practicing here for several years. 

Rev. Mr. Perley seems also to have performed the part of 
the early lawyer, for we are informed that it was he who did the 
legal writing for the pioneers; it is not supposed that he was 
called upon to settle any disputes in this capacity, but, as the 
preacher of the parish he may have averted such contingencies. 
Simeon Greenleaf came in 1807, he was later connected with 
Harvard College; Joseph Waterman; Jas. B. Cleveland in 1831; 
Osgood Bradbury; Jas. O'Donnell for several years previous to 
1849. W. H. Vinton came in 1849 from Oxford and J. D. 
Anderson in 1874. Hon. Mr. Vinton was a member of the 
State Senate in 1853-54, 1861-62, and 1877-78-79; a member of 
the State Legislature in 1857 and 1873, and president of the 
Senate in 1878. In 1882 he was Independent Republican can- 
didate for governor. Mr. Vinton has been closely connected 
with the politics and legal profession of the state; and served 
on the committee with Hon. Nelson Dingley which originated 
the present High School bill, in 1873. 

Gray, Maine 23 


There is but little left to mark the labors of the first settlers. 
The main interest of their descendants centres in their last 
resting-place, a fine burying-ground of 4 acres, in the west of 
the village, commanding a magnificent view of the surrounding 
country. This ground was donated by Daniel Libby, and 
fenced by the town in 1782. It contains many black slabs of 
the last century mingled with the white marble of recent years, 
and many fine monuments, most of which are of granite, 
erected since 1865. There are buried here 6 of the pioneer 
deacons, 4 ministers, 9 captains, 6 field officers, and several 
persons above ninety; one of whom was ninety-six years 
of age. Nearly all the early settlers have been gathered from 
private grounds in various parts of the town and buried here. 

There are many houses in the town of Gray which are 
surrounded with historic interest because of their connection 
with the early interests of the town. The old Doughty house 
at East Gray, long occupied by Hezekiah Whitney, is said to 
be the oldest house in town. Whether this is older than the 
"Eagle Tavern", now the Elm House, seems doubtful. Probably 
no other spot in town is shrouded with the unwritten history 
that surrounds this early hostlery. During the days when 
traveling was done by stage coaches the many public houses 
scattered along the lines of conveyance were places of great 
activity and the centers of interest. Many of these were 
located within the town of Gray. The Elm House was built by 
Daniel Haney previous to 1800, and was occupied by him until 
1804. Titus O. Brown, father of John B. Brown, of Portland, 

24 Gray^ Maine 

was the next landlord. A few years later Mr. Brown went to 
Norway when he sold the Hotel and his residence next door to 
Theophilus Stimson, the father of the donors of the Stimson 
Memorial Hall. Mr. Stimson kept the old hotel for many years. 
This is now operated by Geo. O. Stevens. 

Many of the brick houses in town are approaehiug the 
century mark while not a few have passed that point. There 
are about a dozen at the village which were made, or some of 
them from brick burned at the old yard on the road to Portland, 
about two miles south of the village. These houses are com- 
modious, with immense chimneys protruding from their roofs, 
all of which speak of the days when the great forestick was 
surrounded by a family of ten, twelve, or perhaps fifteen 


Of the wooden structures the old Webster house, built at 
No. Gray in 1805 by Joseph Webster, is among the oldest. 


Gray Grange, No. 41, was organized October 3, 1874, with 
28 charter members. Silas L. Adams was the first master. 
Meetings were first held in the town hall; later the store now 
occupied by John Stevens was bought and used for a time. 
Meetings have also been held in Cobb's Hall. In December, 
l903,thc place of meeting wan changed to the fair building which 
the society bought of the Gray Park Association. Present 
membership, 108. Meetings are held weekly and the society is 
in a very prosperous condition, and is doing excellent work as 

Gray, Maine 25 

a social order. The principal officers chosen for the year 1905 

are: F. H. Kamsdell, master; Mrs. Geo. Knight, overseer; Miss 

Marcia Megquire, lecturer; and Samuel Weymouth, secretary. 


Stirason Memorial Hall, located near the central portion of 
the village, is the gift to the town of Gray from her liberal and 
true sons, Charles, George and Martin Stimson, and their sister, 
Mrs. M. E. Ingalls. These are the sons and daughter of Theo- 
philus Stimson, in memory of whom the hall was donated. This 
beautiful building consists of a handsome hall, library, and a 
banquet room. One of the conditions of the deed is that it shall 
be a free house of worship to the Universalists of Gray. 

The library is located on the second floor. This is free to 
the people of Gray, and will contain a good assortment of books. 
A Gray library association has been formed of which Harry 
Libby is president; Geo. Stevens, treas.; Rev. Frank Pierson, 
sec, and Rev. H. L. McCann, Fred Ramsdell, Jas. T. Hancock, 
and the president and treasurer, directors. A book fund of 
$1,000 has already been raised, one-halt of which is the gift of 
Geo. Stimson, of Los Angeles, Cal. 

IRew Gloucester, /Iftaine 


A tract of land six miles square was granted to 60 of the 
inhabitants of Gloucester, Mass., by the General Court of 
Massachusetts Bay, under date of March 27, 1736. These 
grantees first located their new township where Gorhara and 
Gray now are, but finding that locality claimed under prior 
grants, they located above North Yarmouth, and the General 
Court confirmed the same to them the 5th of July, 1737. That 
y ear a road was bushed out from Cousins river in North Yar- 
mouth, and one division of lots was laid out, extending north- 
cast and south-west from the center of the town. The survey 
consisted of 63 lots, three of which were reserved for each, the 
rirst settled minister, the ministry, and the schools. These lots 
were drawn by the proprietors February 17, 1738. Ten days 
later the name of New Gloucester was adopted, as an earnest 
that the new town should prove to them what old Gloucester 
had been to their fathers. 

John Millett was sent by the proprietors to improve the 
road, build bridges and prepare the way for the settlers who 
soon followed. A few of the proprietors came in the spring of 
1739, and the first clearing was begun on lot No. 10, upon the 
easterly slope of "Harris Hill", by Jonas Mason. The families 
of the settlers, with their goods came in the fall of 1742, when 
the several pioneer homes, each surrounded by a narrow clear- 

New Gloucester, Maine 27 

ing and separated by the dense forest, became the soenes of 
domestic happiness, although maintained under serious difficult- 
ies. In 1744 Capt. Isaac Eveleth was sent to advance the in- 
terests of the settlement, but already the tocsin of war rang out 
its alarm, and five years after the settlement had been begun 
the settlers were ordered off by the Governor of the Province, 
lest they be attacked by the Indian and French warriors. During 
the five years following, while they were scattered through tbe 
coast settlements or returned to Gloucester, their houses were 
burned, their many bridges washed away, and the mill, located 
on Stevens Brook, destroyed. 

In the fall of 1749, the Proprietary sent John Roberts and 
four other men to prepare the way for renewing the settlement, 
but he was prevented from doing this until the fall of 1752. The 
grant was renewed the following spring, and settlers again took 
up their abandoned lots. During the fall of 1753, and the 
following spring the Old Block House was erected, situated 
on the south side of the Gray road a short distance south-west 
of the center of the town; (this spot the town has recently voted 
to mark by a stone monument). This was built of hewn timber 
and fitted with two swivel guns; it served for a home, a fort 
and a church. In July, James Proctor, of Woburn, was sent 
with six men to garrison the fort. The same year the fort was 
attacked by Indians, who captured two men who were without, 
and killed and scalped a third. 

The year 1760 brought peace to the settlement. Up to this 
time nearly all had lived in the block house. Now they began to 
build log houses upon their clearings, and additions were made 

28 New Gloucester, Maine 

to their number by the arrival of new families. The second 
division of lots was laid out, and a road laid out to New Boston 

Of the men that kept the fort, or formed part of its 
company or garrison, the following persons with their families 
became the first permanent settlers in town: John Stenchfield, 
David Millett, Wm. Stevens, Humphrey Woodbury, Samuel 
Worthly, Benj. Hammon, John Megquire, John Stenchfield, Jr., 
Horton Mitchell, Capt. Nathl. Eveleth, Wm. McLane and Wm. 
Stenchfield. These comprised twelve families. The father of 
Philip Winslow was one of the first five men to settle in town. 
Col. Isaac Parsons settled on the farm now occupied by his 
grandson, C. P. Haskell, in 1761; John Woodman settled the 
same year, a little south of "Woodman's Bridge". New roads 
were laid out each season, and in 1763 twenty-five new lots 
were surveyed. The first meeting of the Proprietary at the 
block house was held November 22, that year. At this meeting 
Samuel Merrill was chosen moderator and treasurer; Isaac Par- 
sons, clerk; Jonathan Tyler, Daniel Merrill, and Wm. Harris, a 
prudential committee and assessors; Nathl. Eveleth, collector; 
and Wm. Harris, surveyor of roads. The next year a school- 
house was built and a school maintained, also a minister settled, 
and the town incorporated. 

From this time many settlers arrived each year and this 
settlement, so recently only a group of clearings in the whole 
township, took on the appearance of a lively and prosperous in- 
dustrial center. In 1766 the third and fourth divisions of lots 
were drawn. The latter was called the pine timber division. 

New Gloucester, Maine 29 

In 1767 the fifth or Intervale division; in 1773 the sixth division, 
and in 1790 the seventh and last division was drawn. Previous 
to division the meadows were held as "oommon lands". 


On the 8th of February, 1774 the Proprietary elected 
Simeon Noyes, Ebenezer Mason and Isaac Parsons a committee 
to petition the General Court of Massachusetts for an act of in- 
corporation into a town. To this petition the Court lent a 
willing ear, and early in the year New Gloucester became a 

A warrant was issued to Peleg Chandler, by Col. Wm. 
Allen, bidding him call a meeting of the freeholders and others 
qualified to vote. The first meeting was held in the "Old Meet- 
ing House" on the 7th of September, 1774, when the first board 
of town officers was chosen. Simeon Noyes was chosen 
moderator; Nathl. Eveleth, town clerk; Simeon Noyes, Moses 
Merrill, and Samuel Merrill, selectmen and assessors; Isaac 
Parsons, treasurer; and Abel Davis, constable and collector. 

In 1787 the old fort was sold for seven bushels of corn" 
New Gloucester became a half-shire town with Portland in 
1792, remaining as such until the organization of Oxford County 
in 1805. Courts were held in the old schoolhouse; and the 
jury rooms were in the old Bell Tavern, kept by Peleg Chandler 
on the opposite corner since 1782. A whipping post was erected 
beside the pound, near by, and stocks were built in which some 
of the community occasionally spent their Sundays.

When the drawing of lots was made by the proprietors in 
1738 the men who drew lots numbered 1,2, 21, and 22, near 
Stevens brook, were required to give bonds to build a saw mill 
within two years, and saw lumber at the halves for seven years. 
The mill then built was burned by the Indians, together with 
the homes, during the French and Indian war. When the 
settlement was renewed this mill was rebuilt, and in 1758, a 
grist mill was completed in connection with it. Prior to this 
the settlers carried their corn to North Yarmouth (now Yar- 
mouth) frequently making the trip of 24 miles in a day carrying 
the corn and meal On their shoulders. 

From an article written for the Maine Historical Society 
by Col. Isaac Parsons (whose house, built in 1762, is yet stand- 
ing at the homestead), dated November 6th, 1824, we learn that 
there was then "a sufficient number of carding maohines and 
lulling mills for woolen'', but that "the wool was mostly spun 
and woven in families.'" Of the manufacturing industries then 
in town, located on Royal's river which makes a circuitous 

New Gloucester, Maine 33 


course through the town, there was a saw mill at the upper end 
of Sabbathday Lake; and near the upper corner, "a saw mill, an 
overshot double-stoned grist mill, with a bolt, carried by the 
wheels, a carding machine, a fulling mill, a bark mill and 
tannery." On a stream near the center of the town was an 
overshot grist mill, and another on Lovell's Brook. In 1860 
there were six saw mills, two tanneries, and two grist mills in 

Much attention has been given to agriculture since the 
first settlements were made. Today the beautiful fertile farms, 
the neat homesteads scattered throughout the town, many of 
which are spacious two-story houses generally painted white, 
and the general appearance of thrift and prosperity, all testify 
to the value of this healthful vocation. Some of the best farms 
in this section of the state are located in the valley of Royal's 
river, within the borders of this town. Much attention is given 
to dairying and dairy products, the land being especially well 
adapted to hay. There is a packing house operated by the 
United Packers which cans large quantities of corn, beans, to- 
matoes, and apples. The plant located near the Maine Central 
railroad station was established in 1878 by a Mr. Day; it was 
operated by Mr. Fields, then sold to Coller & Crockett, who 
sold the business to the present concern. L. L. Farwell is 
foreman. Last fall 150,000 cans of corn were packed, nearly 
all of which was the product of New Gloucester Farms. This 
is also a good fruit-growing section. 

34 New Gloucester^ Maine 


W. Jordan & Co's saw mill at Upper Gloucester was built 
about 100 years ago by Andrew Campbell. It then passed into 
the hands of Maj. S. H. Chandler. Washington Jordan bought 
the mill in 1861. The gristmill then connected was discontinued 
about 1863. This is now a long lumber, shingle, and gtave mill 
and employs an average of five men. 

F. W. Winter's long lumber and box board mill just below 
Jordan's was built by Elias C. Lane about 1835, burned about 
1865, and rebuilt the following year. Mr. Lane operated the 
saw mill until his death, in 1878; it was then sold to Alverdo 
Estes, who sold to Mr. Winter in 1888. Mr. Winter has made 
two additions to the mill, which is run only during the summer; 
in the winter extensive lumbering is carried on by the proprietor 
thereby giving yearly employment. 

The mill site south of Sabbathday Lake is an old one. 
William Small built the present mill in 1864 replacing one 
formerly owned by a Mr. Haskell. After twenty years Mr. 
Small sold the mill to Sturgis & Merrill; later Mr. Merrill 
operated it alone until he took Frank M. Hawks as partner. 
Upon Mr. Merrill's death in 1899 his sons succeeded to the 
business as partners of Mr. Hawks. Mr. Hawks then sold to 
D. A. Merrill, the present owner. Eight men are employed 
here during the summer. 

Chandler Bros', saw mill, located on the Lilly pond was 
built about, four y«-*ars ago. This is a steam mill used for sawing 
long lumber, clapboards, shingles, finish, etc.; and does more 


business than any other plant in town. 

New Gloucester, Maine 35 

The grist mill at Intervale, built by Joseph True about 
1888, is now owned and run by F. M. Hawks. 

The well-known Whitman Pungs are manufactured at 
Upper Gloucester by R. H. Richardson. This business was 
established by L. L. Whitman about 1890; Mr. Richardson 
bought the business in 1900. 130 of these practical vehicles 
were manufactured last winter, and as many as 200 have been 
made in a season. Mr. Whitman is now a famous automobilist. 
J. A. Segars has also been interested for many years in the 
manufacture of wagons and sleighs and is now engaged in their 
construction and repair. 



For about ten years after the erection of the block house, 
that was the scene of all public religious worship. In 1764, 
Rev. Samuel Foxcroft, a Harvard graduate, was called to the 
parish. He was given a salary of £80, and a settlement of .£100 
to be paid in building material and labor. A church was 
gathered at once, consisting of the Pastor, John Tufts, Jabez 
True, Dan'l Merrill, Moses Woodbury, Wm. Stevens, Ebenezer 
Mason, and Peleg Chandler. In 1770, 61 persons subscribed to 
build a house of worship and the first Congregational meeting- 
house was erected. Rev. Mr. Foxcroft remained for about 
twenty years. In 1793 he resigned the pastorate. There were 
several new religious organizations formed soon after, rendering 
the parent church unable to support a regular pastor. In 1802 
Rev. Elisha Mosely became pagtor and died in the pastoral 

36 New Gloucester i Maine 

office in 1826, after a long and useful service. Subsequent 
pastors have been: Rev. Benj. Rice, 1828; Rev. Samuel H. 
Shepley, 1838; Newell A. Prince, 1848; Chas. Packard, 1854; 
Rev. W. R. Cross, 1865; Rev. Mr. Leavitt, 1879; F. D. Kelsey, 
1880; Arthur Shirley, 1885; H. G. Mank, 1888; J. C. Gregory, 
1897; and Herbert H. Noyes, 1898, the present pastor. The 
first meeting-house was replaced by the present building in 1838. 
This church building was extensively remodeled during Rev. 
Mr. Mank's pastorate; the organ and choir gallery were changed 
to the front of the church, and an alcove added for the pulpit. 
The parsonage was built about 1866. This church is now in a 
good working condition with a membership of 176. 


By act of the General Court, 1790, Mr. John Woodman, 
and 72 others, were incorporated as the "Baptist Religious 
Society of New Gloucester and Gray". This was afterwaids 
divided, and John Allen, with 30 others, became incorporated 
in 1803 as the "Baptist Society of New Gloucester". 

In 1818, David Nelson, Isaac Gross, and thirty others, 
certified to the town clerk that they were members of an "Un- 
incorporated Particular Baptist Society", and had for their 
religious teacher, Elder Robt. Lowe, of this town. This society 
was afterwards known as the Calvinist Baptist Society, over 
which were settled many able, pious, and learned pastors. This 
society is now extinct. 

Services were held by the Free Baptists as early as 1780. 
A society was organized in 1786, and was incorporated in 1805 

New Gloucester, Maine 37 

as the General Provisional Anti-Pedobaptist Church. Meetings 
were held at the home of Rev. Ephraim Stinchfield from 1787, 
until 1809; then in a schoolhouse until the erection of the 
church in 1839. This was later used as a town house. Another 
church was erected, on Gloucester Hill, in 1848. This society 
generally employed settled pastors until about 20 years ago. 
The pulpit was then vacant until 1900 when Rev. G. H. Grey 
became pastor. He was succeeded in 1902 by Rev. W. H. 
Newell, and in 1903 by Rev. D. A. Gammon. This church is 
located near the Gray line, and the society contains many 
members from that town. 


There were many of this faith among those who withdrew 
from the First Parish Church during the last of the eighteenth 
ci ntury. Frequent services were held previous to their incor- 
poration in 1805. Rev. Thomas Barnes became the pastor in 
1802, remaining until his decease, in 1816. A building was 
erected at Gray Corners in 1839. This was dedicated by Rev. 
Zenas Thompson, and occupied by this society for about 20 
years, when it was sold to the Baptist society. Rev. Geo. G. 
Hamilton was preacher for this society for many years follow- 
ing 1876. From 1840 to that date several pastors were em- 

Previous to the fall of 1900 Rev. Mr. Andrews of Free- 
port preached here for two or three years, during which time 
the interior of the church in the eastern part of the town was 
remodeled and repaired. Miss Eleanor B. Forbes, the present 

38 New Gloucester, Maine 

pastor, came to the church in the fall of 1900, since which time 
fourteen new members have been added to the church. But 
three of the old members are now left. A parish house, or 
vestry, was built last fall. 


In 1764 a public school was established at the center of 
the township, and there maintained until the town was incorpo- 
rated. A schoolmaster was employed, and the school kept in 
different parts of the town by turns until 1777. The school 
money was then divided into four parts, and each of the four 
districts drew its part according to its number of scholars. 
Agents to employ the teachers were chosen by the town. In 
1790 a new district was formed, and in 1803 three new districts. 
In 1803 the school lands were divided among the eight dis- 
tricts, but subsequently formed into a school fund, amounting 
to $4939.93 in 1815. Not until 1823 did the several districts 
select their own agents to employ teachers and provide for the 
schools. A superintending school committee was chosen to 
look after the welfare of the several districts. In 1824 there 
were ten districts in town. In 1803 the sum of $600 was ap- 
propriated for a grammar school in four parts of the town. 

The development of the sohool system of this town com- 
pares favorably with that in surrounding rural towns. About 
1860 there were fourteen school districts and twenty-two 
schools in town. The old district system has now been broken 
up, until nine schools, besides the high school, accommodate all 
the town's scholars. The sohool at the Upper Coi ner is held in 

New Gloucester, Maine 39 

the neat two-story building, in the second story of which is the 
Centennial Hall, added by the school district in 1876. There 
are good school buildings in the other sections of the town. 
There were, in 1903, 183 scholars attending the common 
schools, maintained at an expense of around $25,000. 


The present high school was established in 1900, when it 
was placed under the charge of E. P. Williams, who remained 
principal for two years. He was succeeded by James A. Ham- 
lin of Brunswick, in 1902. During the same year the new 
high school building was erected, and finished in the spring of 
1903, soon after the opening of the spring term. This building 
is unique and striking in architecture, and commodious and con- 
venient in all its appointments. It is beautifully finished, and 
is fitted with the modern improvements generally found in such 
institutions. Mr. Hamlin remained for two years, during 
which time he did most excellent work in the school. The 
largest registration last year was 44, during the winter term, 
when the average attendance was 39. The present instructor, 
Mr. Adams, came to the school last fall. He is assisted by 
Miss Twombly. 


Scarcely had this town become organized when clouds 
of war blackened the horizon, each arriving mail confirming 
the opinion that they were about to fall. Two companies of 
infantry, one of cavalry and one of artillery were formed, 
which included most of the men and boys within the town. A 

40 JVew Gloucester, Maine 

long list of men fought in the Continental .Army, including 
Adj. John K. Smith, who served eight years and seven months, 
and was at Valley Forge under Washington; discharged in 
1783. Capt. Benj. Hammond was killed at Ticonderoga. 
Capt. Isaac Parsons' company, of 55 men, mustered into 
service in May, 1776, for eight months' service, under Brig- 
Gen. Wadsworth. As many as 75 men from this town, or who 
settled here after the war, are known to have served in the 
Revolution, in the cause of American Independence. 

In the War of 1812, Lieut. Thomas Johnson, Jr., served 
under Gens. Hampton and McComb.

Harry W. Farnham and Frank E. Stevens enlisted from 
this town, and served in the First Regiment during the 
Spanish- American War; Joseph F. Strout, now a resident, en- 
listed from Lewiston, and served in the heavy artillery. 


Dr. Russell was probably the earliest practicing physician 
in town, coming as early as 1776. Wm. Bridgham came in 
1792. Dr. Timothy Little was a famous practitioner and in- 
structor during the early part of the century, and was a pro- 
fessor at Bowdoin Medical School after practicing here. Dr. 
Benj. H. Mace, 1827; Dr. Joel Stevens, 1828 (died in 1835); 
Dr. Symonds Baker, 1829; Dr. Geo. Brickett; Dr. Boothbay; 

42 New Gloucester, Maine 

Dr. John P. Stevens (died in 1875); Dr. David Clark, now in 
Portland; Dr. Benj. F. Sturgis and Dr. A. Q. Marshall, were 
all well known physicians during the early part and middle of 
the last century. Dr. John I. Sturgis has practiced medicine 
here since he came, about 1874. Dr. Alfred Salle, now in 
Auburn, was here at one time. 


During the years from 1792 to 1805, when the courts sat 
here regularly each year, many noted judges presided, and not 
a few famous men of this order had their homes in town. Hon. 
Wm. Widgery, one of the most prominent men of his time, was 
a representative in the Twelfth Congress of the U. S. A. in 
1810, and was judge of the Court of Common Pleas until his 
death, in 1832. 

Ezekiel Whitmaa practiced law in New Gloucester from 
1802 to 1817, when he removed to Portland, and became chief 
justice of the Superior Court of Maine. A. K. Paris and Josiah 
W. Mitchell read law in his office while here. Nathan Weston, 
judge of the Superior Court, came in 1806; removed in 1809. 

Gen. Samuel Fes*.enden began practice here in 1809, and 
remained eight years. Peleg Chandler, a student in his office 
here, became judge of the Court of Sessions in 1809, and after- 
wards moved to Augusta; died in 1848. 

William and Osgood Bradbury, brothers, were early phy- 
sicians in t<>wn. For several years there has been no resident 

New Gloucester, Maine 43 



This association was incorporated Dec. 8, 1890, succeed- 
ing the New Gloucester and Danville Agricultural Society. 
There were 22 members. The annual exhibitions and trots are 
held at the old grounds of the former organization, located in 
the valley of the Royal river, near Upper Gloucester. The pur- 
pose of this organization is the advancement of agriculture, 
horticulture, and the general interests of husbandry. Two 
days' fair are generally held each year, but in 1903 this was 
changed to a three days' session. The neat grand stand and 
the judges' stand were bought of the Gray Park Association, 
which was an organization of the same nature operated at 
Gray village up to 1902. There are also a new water tank and 
sheds. The association is in good working order, and is well 
attended. The officers for 1905 are 0. H. Campbell, Pres.; 
.]. D. Kirkpatrick, Vice Pres.; J. P. Witham, Sec; Geo. W. 
Haskell, Treas. 


New Gloucester Grange, No. 28, organized September, 
1874, had 18 charter members. The organization was made in 
the old Town Hall, where the meetings were held for several 
years. From 1885 to 1897 they were held at the Grange Hall, 
in the lower part of the town. The present hall at the Lower 
Corner was bought of M. R. Berry in 1900. The first Master 

44 New Gloucester, Maine 

was Solomon Plummer. Masters since 1892: Chas. N. Fogg, 
Geo. W. Hatch, Joseph S. True, J. W. Rideout, John W. True, 
Frank Cummings, S. F. Sweetser, and Joseph S. True, elected in 
1904. Officers for 1905: J. S. True, M.; 8. F. Sweetser, 
O.; A. D. True, Lee; Sarah M. True, Sec. S. F. Sweetser 
is a member of the Executive Committee of the State Grange. 

Sabbathday Lake Grange, No. 365, was organized in the 
fall of 1900, with about 25 charter members. Brackets Hall 
was used as a place of meeting until the new hall, dedicated 
Oct. 16, 1903, was opened for use. This is located at the south 
end of Sabbathday Lake, and was built by the organization at a 
cost of about $2000; it is used for rdigious and agricultural pur- 
poses. The Masters have been Chas. W. Shackford, Davis A. 
Merrill, C. W. Shackford, and E. C. Hackett, elected for 1905. 
Other officers for 1905 are A. C. Hodgkins, Over.; Dr. Geo. 
Ellenwood, Lee; and Mrs. E. C. Hackett, Sec. 


A beautiful free public library was erected at the village in 
1896. For this a liberal sum was received from the Walker 
library fund, and a generous appropriation made by the town. 
This is located near the town house and the new high school 
building. There is a good assortment of over 4000 volumes. 
Miss Helen A. Mosley is librarian. 

The new Masonic Hall at Upper Gloucester is one of the 
finest structures in town. This was erected in 1902, and dedi- 
cated in June, 1903, commemorating the centennial anniversary 
of the organization of Cumberland Lodge. 

New Gloucester, Maine 45 


The people of this interesting community, whose farm of 
2000 acres is situated on the west shore of Sabbathday 
Lake, near the western corner of the town, are deserving 
of especial mention. The Shaker Society, of which there 
are several communities in New York and New England, 
was founded by Ann Lee. She came to America in 1774, soon 
after which she had gained quite a following, and established 
the first American community of Shakers at Niskayuna, now 
Watervliet, N. Y. 

In November, 1782, Elisha Pote, Nathan Freeman, Joseph 
Stone and Enoch Waite came from Gorham, Me., into what was 
then called Thompson Pond Plantation, and held meetings in 
the house of Gowen Wilson, Sr. Mr. Pote was the leading 
speaker, but all were preachers and singers, and soon their 
clear reasoning and convincing ways won many converts to 
their faith. Among these were Gowen Wilson, Nathan, James 
and Edmund Merrill, Josiah, Simeon and Gersham Merrill, 
Thomas Pote, Samuel Pote, Barnabas and Ephraim Briggs, and 
Thomas Cushman, together with their wives and children, and 
many others. These were organized into a society April 
19, 1794, under the leadership of Elder John Barnes from 
Alfred, Robert McFarland from Gorham, and Eldresses Sarah 
Kendall and Lucy Prescott from Harvard, Mass. The first 
Board of Trustees appointed were Nathaniel Merrill and Barna- 
bas Briggs, who at once commenced to build the present settle- 
ment. The meeting-house, now standing, was raised the follow- 
ing June, and was finished and ready for occupancy on 

46 New Gloucester, Maine 

Christmas Day. The central dwelling was completed soon 
after. From this time this was the scene of great activity, the 
brick, nails, building material, and many other articles needed 
by the community were made by members of the society. A 
grist mill had been built by the combined labor of the brethren, 
in 1786, on a little stream about forty rods east of their present 
stately mill. In 1796 a saw mill was built. In this building 
were later installed turning lathes and card machines, which 
were transferred to the present mill when that was erected in 
1853. The manufacture of cloth by the sisters, and the manu- 
facture of wooden ware, preparing garden seeds for the market, 
and returns from the labor of the men on the farm, gave them 
financial success. 

From that time to the present this community has main- 
tained their integrity, and have gained the admiration and re- 
spect of those who know them best. They are peculiar only in 
their manner of domestic relations, and this manner is con- 
sidered peculiar only because uncommon. They are accounted 
to be of the best people of the county, law-abiding, honest, in- 
dustrious, and extremely hospitable. They have changed the 
nature of their manufactured articles from time to time. The 
chief maintainanee of the community at the present time is the 
returns received from the sale of the sisters' work, the product 
of the farm, and the manufacture of boxes in which Poland 
water is shipped. Cloaks made after the pattern of those worn 
by the Shaker sisters one hundred years ago are now made of 
fancy and elegant material, and are in great demand by those 
in fashionable circles for opera cloaks. Work baskets, hair 

New Gloucester, Maine 47 

brushes, needle and pin cushions, and many other fancy articles 
are made by them, and orange peel, lemon peel, and nuts are 
preserved; all of which are sold at Poland Springs, Mt. Desert, 
Rangeley Lakes, and other fashionable summer resorts. 

At present there are 46 members. A new cottage was 
erected for the little girls' home two years ago. An efficient 
water system was installed at the same time, and the several 
homes are connected by local telephone with one another, while 
the Pine Tree line connects the community with the business 

The Novitiate Order, which moved to Poland from Gorham, 
in 1819, and formed the village formerly located about a mile 
north of this, was sold to Hiram Pucker & Sons in 18S7, and 
the family removed to this village. There are now but two of 
this order living; Adeline Haskell, and her daughter, Elizabeth. 

The organization of the United Society oonsists firstly of 
the ministry composed of four members and presiding over two 
or more societies. Second in importance are the elders who 
preside at the head of each family, and third are the trustees to 
whom is intrusted tho management of the temporal and financial 
affairs of the community. Space allows us to name only those 
now filling these offices, but we would add that they are the 
worthy successors to a long list of noble men and women whose 
consecrated devotion to the welfare and integrity of the society 
has left behind them an honored and respected memory. 

The Ministry of the Bishopric, presiding over this and the 
Community at Alfred consists of Elder William Dumont, 
Eldress Lizzie M. Noyes, and Eldress Elizabeth Haskell.

Census, 1905. 

The population of the towns of Gray and New Gloucester 
has been arranged in families where that arrangement has been 
possible. In these families, in addition to the resident living 
members, the names of the non-resident members are included. 
It should be borne in mind that this plan does not include the 
names of all former residents, as the names of the non-residents 
appear only when one or both of the parents are still living in 
the towns. After the name of each non-resident will be found 
the present address, when such address has been given to us. 
The non-residents are indicated by the star (*). In case a 
daughter in a family has married, her name taken in marriage 
appears after her given name in parenthesis ( ), preceded by 
a small (m). 

Following the names of the population is the occupation. 
To designate the occupations we have used the more coram >n 
abbreviations and contractions. Some of these follow: Farmer — 
far; carpenter — car; railroad service — R. R. ser; student, a 
member of an advanced institution of learning — stu; pupil, a 
member of a lower grade of schools — pi; housework — ho; 
laborer — lab; physician — phy; clergyman — clerg; merchant — 
mer; teacher — tr; blacksmith — blk; clerk — cl; book-keeper — 
bk kpr; lawyer — law; mechanic — mech; engineer — eng; insur- 
ance — ins; maker — mkr; worker — wkr; work — wk; carriage 
work — car wk; painter — ptr; electrician — elec; poultryman — 
pit; mill operative — mill op; lumberman — lum; teamster — team; 
shoe shop work — s s wk; mariner — mar. 


Gray, Maine 

The address of Gray residents who have no address 
given is GRAY. Other addresses are abbreviated as follows: 
North Gray — No. ; East Gray—JE^sf; West Gray —; Dry 
Mills — Dry M. 

The address of New Gloucester residents, when not ex- 
pressed is NEW GLOUCESTER. Upper Gloucester is 
abbreviated thus — Up. ; Sabbathday Lake — Said. LJc. ; Inter- 
vale — Int. ; Danville Junction — Danv. Jet. Out of town post- 
offices: Portland — Port.; North Yarmouth — No. Yar. Rural 
Free Deliverv routes are designated thus: No. 1 ; No. 2. 

This census was taken expressly for this work during 
December, 1904, by R. A. Weston and L. A. Reed, of Readfield, 
and F. E. Daggett, of Topsham, Maine.
