A CARD. 

In presenting this Register to the people of Farmington, 

Milton and Wakefield, we wish to acknowledge our indebtedness 

,1 ' 
for historical data to articles written by Mrs. Adelaide Alley v6 

Waldron and Mr. Ned Parker on Farmington, to Mr. Arthur 
Thad Smith's address at Milton's Centennial Celebration, and 
to the Rev. Albert Thompson's sketch on Wakefield in the His- 
tory of Carroll County ; also to the town records and documents 
kindly furnished by Messrs. White, Avery and Garvin, the clerks 
of these towns, to the clerks and pastors of the different churches, 
and to all the various sources from which our information has 
been obtained. Realizing the limitations of space, it has not 
been possible to deal with minor details, the purpose being to 
put the history in brief form into the great majority of the 
homes in these towns. We wish to thank the people here for 
their cordial encouragement and aid, for their courtesy and good 
wiU, in a word for the way in which they have "stood behind" 
the undertaking. We hope that they will find the Register 
something which is worth while and for the most part authen- 
tic and satisfactory. 



INTRODUCTION. 



The group of towns included in this work, are located in 
the southeastern section of the State of New Hampshire ; Farm- 
ington and Milton in the County of Strafford, and Wakefield in 
the County of Carroll. 

The region in which they lie is for the most part hilly ?ind 
broken, traversed by mountains which rise to a considerable 
height, and divide it into valley and small plateaus, through 
which flow many beautiful streams, the outlets of the ponds and 
lakes in which this section abounds. 

It is a picturesque region, only a few miles from the majes- 
tic Winnepesaukee, and within sight of the White Mountains, 
whose peaks towering far into the heavens, can be seen by the 
naked eye from the many elevations in these towns, which are 
just far enough removed from the "White Hills" to be outside 
the mountain country on the north. 

Combining the attractions of hill and lake, with stretches 
of low land and valley, this region has many attractions for 
every lover of the beautiful in Nature. Here, centuries ago, the 
Indian hunted and fished, and the wild beast roamed through 
the forest which man and animal shared alike, and which 
extended in unbroken, primeval vastness over upland and low- 
land to the waters of the sea. 

In 1623, the white man came, and made the earliest settle- 
ment in New Hampshire, at Dover, (Cocheco). The conflict 
between the races which so soon after ensued, continued for more 



10 INTRODUCTION 

than a hundred years, and this section was the scene of many a 
terrible and bloody struggle, like that which occurred when 
"The Indian hordes came down 
At midnight on Cocheco town." 

The people of today little realize how great were the hard- 
ships and privations which their forefathers endured, how ter- 
rible were the years of suffering and conflict; first against the 
wild beasts and the Indians ; then the Indians of the North and 
their allies, the French; and finally against England to secure 
the liberty and freedom without which life is not worth while. 

More than one and a quarter centuries have passed since 
our country became a nation, and the changes that have come 
with the years are very great. 

The Indian has gone forever from New Hampshire, swept 
away by the superior strength and numbers of the white con- 
querors, and by the advance of civilization. Sometimes we 
unearth here and there, fragments of pottery, a bit of flint, a 
weapon perhaps, these are all that remain as relics of a departed 
race, and doubtless, they mingle in the earth with the dust of 
their former owners. The wild beasts, too, are gone, the forests 
that sheltered them have melted away. The old Winnepe- 
saukee trail, which the Indian followed in his journeys to and 
from the interior of the State, and the region to the north, is 
traversed by the railroad of modern days; the bridle paths of 
the settlers have given way to roads and drives; the wigwams 
and crude villages of the Indians, and the little clearings of the 
settlers, have been replaced by well-tilled farms, broad meadow 
lands, and villages ; industry and commerce rule where once war 
and bloodshed occupied men's thoughts and stirred them, and 



INTRODUCTION 11 

everywhere is manifest the onward march of Progress. 

The redman is gone, and as he passed away, so we, too, 
shall go, after we have played our part in the great Theatre of 
Life, but always the lordly mountains and the beautiful lakes 
will remain for our descendants, and the Piscataqua, the Salmon 
Falls, the Cocheco, and the other rivers of old New Hampshire 
will flow to meet the sea, and to tell their mother there of the 
men and women who were and are, and how well they per- 
formed their mission. , 



INDIAN HISTORY. 



The native tribes of New Hampshire were all of the Abnaki 
nation; but probably had a separate government, and were for 
the most part independent of those who lived in what is now the 
State of Maine. The Indians were divided into several tribes, 
among which were the Pequaquaukes, or Pequawkets, whose ter- 
ritory embraced a part of Maine ; the Ossipees, the Squamscotts, 
the Winnecowetts, and the Piseataquas, all living in the eastern 
section of the State. 

The population of these tribes is not definitely known, in 
fact there is no certainty that any estimate of their numbers was 
ever made by any reliable authority. The population, however, 
was sparse. Here and there at remote distances was located a 
little village ; but of never more than a few hundred inhabitants. 

The Indians in this section probably acknowledged as their 
Great Sagamore, the famous Passaconaway, whose achievements 
and powerful reign have been told many times in song and story. 
He was a powerful warrior, an eloquent orator, a sachem whose 
sagacity, and reputation as a sorcerer were knowTi by all the 
redmen in this part of the country, and a chief whose influence 
and power over his people were remarkable. He was friendly 
toward the settlers in spite of their unjust usurpation of his 
lands, and wished that the Indians and white men might always 
live in friendship, and that the wars might cease. 

The following extract from his farewell address to his war- 
riors in 1660, makes evident his view of the relations between 



INDIAN HISTORY 13 

the natives and the white men: 

"The oak will soon break before the whirlwind, — it shivers 
and shakes even now ; soon its trunk will be prostrate, — the ant 
and the worm will sport upon it! Then think, my children, of 
what I say! I commune with the Great Spirit. He whispers 
me now: 'Tell your people, Peace — peace, is the only hope of 
your race. I have given fire and thunder to the pale-faces for 
weapons, — I have made them plentier than the leaves of the 
forest; and still shall they increase. These meadows they shall 
turn with the plow, — these forests shall fall by the axe, — the 
pale-faces shall live upon your hunting-grounds and make their 
villages upon your fishing places.' The Great Spirit says this, 
and it must be so! We are few and powerless before them! 
We must bend before the storm! The wind blows hard! The 
old oak trembles, its branches are gone, its sap is frozen, it bends, 
it falls! Peace— peace, with the white man! — is the command 
of the Great Spirit; and the wish — the last wish, of Passacon- 
away. ' ' 

Wonolanset, his son and successor, heeded his advice, and 
when King Philip's war broke out fifteen years later, in spite 
of the fact that practically all the other tribes of New England 
engaged in the war, his followers withdrew to a place remote 
from the scenes of conflict. In 1676, however, four hundred 
Indians who had been invited to Cocheco (Dover) to witness a 
training and sham fight, were seized by the whites, and although 
the Pennacooks were dismissed unharmed, the indignity was too 
great to be endured and disregarding the advice of the dead 
Passaconaway the Pennacooks went on the war path, and became, 
like the other tribes, the bitter foes of the white men. 



14 INDIAN HISTORY 

The usual route of the Indians from the mountains and lakes 
to the white settlements was by the Cocheco and Newichawannoc 
(Salmon Falls) rivers, and doubtless the territory now compris- 
ing these towns was often visited by them, and the forests that 
covered it often rang with the war-whoop of many a hostile 
band. 

Many massacres took place and many battles were fought 
between the redman and the white in this part of the State. 
The massacre at Dover, in which Major Waldron was brutally 
murdered, took place June 27, 1689. 

The Indian war called "Lovewell's War" on account of the 
exploits of Capt. John Lovewell, began in 1722. Many success- 
ful expeditions against the Indians took place under his leader- 
ship. Lovewell 's Pond in Wakefield takes its name from Capt. 
Lovewell, who surprised and killed ten Pequawket Indians at 
that place. He and his men, however, finally were attacked from 
ambush by a powerful force of Indians under the Chief Paugus, 
near the pond, and after a long and bloody fight, he and many 
of his followers were slain. 

After the close of the French and Indian War and the 
increase of population in the settlements, few Indians remained 
in New Hampshire, and the hostilities between the redmen and 
the white men soon ceased. 



History of Fanmington 



The town of Farmington, situated near the center of Straf- 
ford County, New Hampshire, is twenty-five miles from the State 
capital, Concord, and eighteen miles northwest of Dover, the 
county seat of Strafford. It was originally a part of Rochester, 
from which it was set off and incorporated December 1, 1798. 
The area of the township is about 21,000 acres, a large portion 
of which is covered with timber. The surface is broken, and the 
soil difficult to cultivate, though on the margin of the Cocheco 
river, there are tracts that produce excellent crops. 

Extensions of the Blue Hills are included within the town 
boundaries, traversing Farmington from north to south, the most 
important elevations of which are known as Nubble, Hussey, 
Chesley and Blue Job mountains. The last. Blue Job, attains 
a height of 1,400 feet above the sea level, and on a clear day a 
view of the White Mountains, Monadnock, and other mountains 
to the north and west can be seen distinctly, while the shipping 
in and off Portsmouth is visible to the naked eye. The principal 
villages are Farmington, West Farmington and Merrill's Cor- 
ner. The Lake Shore branch of the Boston & Maine Railroad 
passes through the first and most important village. The Cocheco 
and Mad rivers flowing through the town afford abundant water 
power for the manufacturing industries, to which principally 
Farmington owes her prosperity and growth. The population in 
1900 was 2,265, but has increased to more than 3,000 probably 
at the present time. 



16 FARMINGTON 

EARLY SETTLEMENT. 

Perhaps the earliest settler in what is now the town of Farm- 
ington was a Mr. Berry, who built a log hoase in the south part 
of the town as early as 1770. 

The first frame house erected here was built in 1781, for 
John Roberts, who came to this place the following year from 
Dover Neck, and resided here many years. 

Jonas C. March, a native of Portsmouth, constructed the 
second frame house in the neighborhood, some time prior to 1792. 
He was the son of Clement March, who, tradition has it, was 
a giant in size, and one who commanded the greatest respect 
from his fellow townsmen. It is said that the sight of his cane 
alone, was enough to awe them. Jonas March married Sally, 
daughter of Judge Aaron Wingate, and after her death, her 
sister Lydia. Mr. March was one of the earliest merchants in 
the town. It is very probable that it was because of the swamp 
behind his store, and the unloading of lumber on the platform, 
that the business section of Farmington received the name of 
"The Dock." However, it is thought also, that the name owes 
its origin to the abundant growth of weeds ("dock") in that 
vicinity. The name first occurs in the records in 1792. 

Capt. Richard Waldron, one of the original proprietors of 
Rochester, by his will dated August 26, 1777, bequeathed to his 
sons, John, Joseph, Richard, Samuel and James, certain tracts 
of land and water privileges in this township, and part, at least, 
of the property lay between the March place, and the lands of 
John Ham, another of the early proprietors. The village of 
Farmington is situated on the Ham place. Benjamin Jones 



HISTORICAL 17 

erected a "half-house" next to Mr. March's place, on the spot 
now occupied by the Congregational Church. Eleazer Pearl built 
his residence on a spot facing Central street, where the Odd 
Fellows Hall now stands. Nearby was the house which Dr. Ben- 
jamin Libby occupied upon his arrival here in 1800. Lemuel 
Rand, too, constructed a house at the village, building it upon 
the site, where, at the present time the beautiful residence of 
Mrs. Arianna P. Davis is situated. John Wingate, Esq., built 
in this place in 1800, a house which is now the residence of Mr. 
and Mrs. Charles H. Berry. "Squire" Wingate was a black- 
smith, and the shop where he carried on his trade, adjoined the 
house. Capt. Josiah Edgerly, a skilled cabinet maker from New 
Durham, who had married a daughter of Col. Thomas Nash, built 
a shop on Main street about the year 1807. 

The Hon. Nathaniel Eastman, a native of Gilmanton, who 
had married a sister of Gov. Levi Woodbury, had a beautiful 
mansion constructed for himself in the village in 1813. Benja- 
min Canney was another early builder in the village. 

Squire Waldron, whose wife was Mary Scott, of Machias, 
Maine, lived in the northern part of the town where he built a 
handsome residence in 1812. Samuel Jones, the Furbers, Ben- 
jamin Chesley, Paul Demeritt and others settled near Merrill's 
Comer long before Farmington became a town. The Leightons, 
who came here from Dover, made a settlement on the Ten Rod 
Road ; Moses Home, Caleb Varney and Aaron Wingate on Chest- 
nut HiU. 

William Tibbetts of England erected the first frame house 
on the New Durham Ridge Road, He died in 1788, and the 
property has come down to Mr. George A. Davis, a descendant. 



18 FARMINGTON 

Ancient poplar trees, still standing, were brought here by Mr. 
Tibbetts. 

Just below Farmington village is a huge boulder weighing 
twelve tons, which marks the site of the little house where Farm- 
ington 's great statesman, Henry Wilson, was born in 1812, He 
was the son of Winthrop and Abigail Colbath, early residents of 
this town, and was named for another early resident, Jeremiah 
Jones, whose daughter, Mrs. Clara Augusta Trask, has won a 
very high place among American woman writers. When young 
Colbath had gro^\Ti to manhood, he changed his name from 
"Jeremiah Jones Colbath" to the simpler and more easily spoken 
Henry Wilson. He was one of those "self-made men" so typi- 
cally American, and served his country as United States Senator 
from Massachusetts, and as Vice-President of the nation during 
the second administration of President Grant. 

The inventory taken by the selectmen in 1799 gives a com- 
plete, though partly illegible list of the residents in the town, 
and the names copied from this list complete the account of the 
early land holders and residents. In 1830, there were fifteen 
frame dwellings, five stores, one mill, and one tavern in town.

INCORPORATION. 

The town of Farmington was incorporated by act of the 
New Hampshire Legislature, December 1, 1798. Prior to that 
time it had been included in the town of Rochester, of which it 
formed the "North West Parish." 

Rochester, embracing not only its present territory but also 
that which now forms the townships of Farmington and Milton, 
had increased so much in population that it became very diffi- 
cult to assemble the citizens from so large an area for civic 
meetings and the like. This was an important reason for divid- 
ing the town, but the primary object in separating the North- 
west Parish from the parent town was, probably, the attainment 
of greater religious liberty, and freedom from the payment of 
taxes for the support of a ministry, which on account of their 
remoteness from Rochester proper the citizens of Farmington 
were unable to enjoy. 

In 1783, the people of Farmington petitioned to be set off 
by themselves. This request was not granted, however, and no 



HISTORICAL 21 

division was made. The agitation for a separation continued, 
and after several additional petitions had been dismissed and 
the dissatisfaction had become mutual on the part of the citizens 
of the "First Parish" (Rochester), and the other parishes 
(Farmington and Milton), the consent of the town was finally 
voted in 1798, and Farmington was incorporated as a town. 
The population at that time was about one thousand inhabitants. 

State of New Hampshire. — In the year of our Lord one 
thousand seven hundred and ninety-eight. 

An Act to incorporate that part of the Town of Rochester, 
in the County of Strafford, commonly called the Northwest Par- 
ish into a separate town by the name of Farmington. 

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives 
in general court convened, that the lands and inhabitants con- 
tained within the northwesterly part of said Rochester, as 
described within the following lines and boundaries (to wit) : 
Beginning at a stake standing upon Barrington line, twenty-two 
rods northwesterly from the outlet of Pickeral Pond (so called) , 
thence running upon a straight line across lot numbered forty- 
nine in the second division till it strikes the range line between 
lots numbered thirty-six and thirty-seven in said second division, 
thence running upon said range line about northeasterly till it 
strikes the southeast corner of lot numbered fifty-one in the said 
second division, thence turning at right angles with said range 
line and running from said corner about northwest upon the 
westerly side of the four rod range road to the head line of the 
said second division, thence upon the range line which divides 
lots numbered four and six, three and five, and ninety-eight and 



22 FARMINGTON 

ninety-nine, in the third division, to Middleton line, thence upon 
said Middleton line about southwesterly till it strikes the north- 
easterly corner of Barrington, thence upon the division line of 
said Barrington and the said Towti of Rochester to the bounds 
first mentioned, be and they hereby are incorporated into a sep- 
arate town by the name of Farmington, and the said Town of 
Farmington is hereby invested with all the powers, privileges, 
and immunities to which other to\\Tis in this State are or may 
be entitled, agreeable to the Constitution and Laws of this State, 
to have continuance and succession forever. 

The first town meeting was held March 11, 1799, at the 
house of Simon Dame, in accordance with the notification made 
out to the free holders and inhabitants of the town, February 23, 
1799. Judge Aaron Wingate served as moderator. Jonas C. 
Marsh was elected town clerk; Ichabod Hayes, Lieut. Ephraim 
Kimball, and David Roberts, selectmen. The largest number of 
votes cast at this meeting was 141. 

The total collection of taxes for the year 1799, Farmington 's 
first as a town, amounted to $597.45. The balance of receipts 
over expenditures for the year was $92.47. The selectmen 
received $3.00 each for their services; a Mr. Genu was paid in 
part for preaching, $54.00; Capt. Furber's bill for the use of 
his bam took $1.66 from the funds and William Knight received 
$3.00, the full amount paid for the use of his bam.

ECCLESIASTICAL ACCOUNT. 

Religious services were held in Farmington as early as 1797, 
and conducted in barns by Benj. Green, then preceptor of Ber- 
wick Academy, afterwards a lawyer and judge. He was a very 



HISTORICAL 27 

eloquent preacher, it is said, and people flocked from all the 
country round to hear him. No church was formed, however, 
until 1819, when James Walker from Concord preached alter- 
nately at Farmington and Milton. 

The first meetinghouse in this town stood on "Meeting- 
house Hill," south of the village, and near the centre of the 
town. It remained unfinished about fifty years, when it was 
removed to Rochester. 

In 1834, a meetinghouse was built a short distance below the 
village by several denominations, who united in the undertak- 
ing, but no regular preaching was maintained till six years 
later, at which time the people received aid from the New Hamp- 
shire Missionary Society. 

First Congregational Church. 

This church was organized in 1819, with the Rev. James 
Walker as pastor, and a membership of eight persons. In 1844, 
a Congregational church was dedicated in Farmington. It had 
been erected on Central Street on land given in trust by the Hon. 
G. L. Whitehouse, to be held by the parish so long as used for 
religious purposes. This structure becoming too small for the 
membership of the church, a larger edifice was built in 1870, on 
Main street. It was a beautiful church, and cost, when com- 
pletely furnished, about $25,000. It was destroyed by the great 
fire of 1875, and was replaced by the present commodious brick 
edifice in the tower of which is the town clock. The steeple, 
towering fifty feet above the clock tower, contains a fine toned 
bell which weighs more than a ton. The church was dedicated 
March 8, 1876. The pastors who remained longest at the church 



28 FARMINGTON 

were the Revs. James Walker, D, D. Tappan, D.D., "Walter E. 
Darling, who came in 1877, and remained many years, and Roger 
M. Sargent. Other pastors have been, the Revs. Clement Par- 
ker, who succeeded Mr. "Walker, the first pastor of the church; 
S. H. Goodwin, who came in 1893 ; I. W. Sweet, whose pastorate 
began about 1897, to continue throughout a period of many 
years; Arthur L. Golder, who was here in 1901; and Edward 
D. Disbrow, who remained until the fall of 1907. 

Free Baptist Church. 

The first Free Baptist Church was organized in 1854, with 
the Rev. Dexter Waterman as pastor. Meetings were held in 
the meetinghouse on Peavey Hill, where the Congregationalists 
worshipped. During the pastorate of j\Ir. Waterman the church 
membership increased to thirty-two. He resigned in 1856, and 
was succeeded by Rev. J. M. L. Babcock, who remained until 
1858. A new church was erected in 1857, and dedicated in 
October of the same year. The Rev. D. P. Cilley, who was the 
next pastor of the church, remained until 1861, when he was 
appointed Chaplain of Eighth New Hampshire Vols. The Rev. 
Ezekiel True succeeded Mr, Cilley and remained until 1866. 

The Rev. S. N. Tufts, the next pastor, closed his pastorate in 
1870, and the Rev. G. M. Parks, now of Presque Isle, Maine, 
became pastor of the church. The church was enlarged in 1871, 
and the next year a bell tower and steeple were constructed. 
The Rev. Mr. Parks remained until Nov. 1, 1874, when he closed 
his pastorate, leaving the church free from debt, and with the 
knowledge of faithful service attested by the ninety-two persons 
who joined the church and the seventy-four baptisms among that 



HISTORICAL 29 

number. The Rev. David H. Adams was the next to take this 
pastorate, entering upon his labors Jan. 1, 1875. During his 
ministry here he solemnized 74 marriages, and was called to 
attend 216 funerals. Mr. Adams' successor, the Rev. C. A. 
Bickford, D.D., who afterwards became editor of the "Morning 
Star," came in the fall of 1878, and remained two years, at the 
end of which time the Rev. Mr. Adams returned to the church. 
He remained two and a half years. From August, 1883, to May, 
1884, the society was without a pastor. At the end of this time, 
the Rev. Thomas Spooner came to begin a pastorate which con- 
tinued for four years. Extensive repairs and renovations cost- 
ing about $2,500 were made during the ministry of the Rev. 
Mr. Spooner. The Rev. Geo. L. White, enjoyed four years of 
endeavor and success here, after which he accepted a call to the 
church at New Hampton. The Rev. J. S. Harrington, an able 
man, came next. He remained seven years, when he was suc- 
ceeded by the Rev. Frank Pearson, a very worthy successor, who 
remained four years. 

Following Mr. Pearson's pastorate, the Rev. J. H. Wilkins 
came in May, 1903. This gentleman is the present able pastor 
of the church, which, with a large and active membership, enjoys 
a prosperity which compares excellently with that of the most 
prosperous of the Free Baptist denomination. 

Advent Church. 

This society, the members of which worship in the chapel 
on Union street, has held regular meetings here for many years, 
but had no regular pastor until recent years. Among its mem- 
bers are one or two of the leaders in the movement that estab- 



30 FARMINGTON 

lished the campground at Alton Bay, where many largely 
attended and successful meetings have been held. 

The Rev. B. J. Glazier was pastor for several years, and was 
succeeded by Elder Joy, the present pastor of the church. The 
society, though not enjoying so large a membership as its sister 
churches in Farmington, is in a very prosperous condition and 
exerts a very great and very worthy influence for the spiritual 
and moral welfare of the people of this town. 



There was a Quaker meeting house in the early days of the 
town, but services are not held here now as the number of Friends 

in Farmington is small. 



INDUSTRIAL HISTORY. 

Farmington was a pioneer town of New Hampshire in the 
manufacture of boots and shoes, and this has been the principal 
industry of the town for many years. Though not so fortunate 
as many other towns of this section of the State in the possession 
of great water power, the manufacturing industries of the town, 
through the indormitable purpose and perseverance of the early 
manufacturers, have been and still are among the most important 
in this State. 

In the early part of the last century, Hon. Geo. L. "White- 
house dug a canal nearly a mile long, and in 1839 erected a fac- 
tory in which he combined the manufacture of cotton yarn, with 



HISTORICAL 31 

that of shingles and clapboards, and operated a grist mill. The 
mill afterwards came into the possession of J, W. Waldron, and 
was, a few years ago, transformed by the owner, J. F. Cloutman, 
into an electric light station. 

Even prior to the construction of the Whitehouse canal, and 
as early as 1830, there was a mill in the village, and Elijah H. 
Badger was engaged in the manufacture of shoes. Farmington 
had attained some little prominence as a shoe town even before 
the Civil War, the "brogans," being made by many of the towns- 
people by hand. With the close of the war and the introduction 
of machinery, conditions changed, but the citizens of the town 
met the new aspect of affairs, erected factories, filled them with 
machinery, and continued to make shoes, and a large quantity of 
them, with the result that a hustling manufacturing centre was 
formed. Seventeen factories were in operation at one time, and 
the production has been well kept up. 

Elijah Badger's venture as a shoe man was one of fair suc- 
cess, and Martin L. Hayes, a native of Farmington, determined 
to undertake the business, and was very successful in the enter- 
prise. G. M. Herring of Framingham, Mass., began to manu- 
facture shoes here at about the same time (1837). Other early 
manufacturers were : The Roberts Brothers, Alonzo, Jeremy and 
C. W. Nute, Jas. B. Edgerly, Luther Wentworth, H. B. Edgerly, 
Israel Hayes, Wm. Johnson, N. T. Kimball and John L. Pratt, 
John H. Hurd, C. W. Thurston, Geo. A. and Edwin F. Jones, 
E. 0. Curtis, E. C. Kinnear, John M. Berry, John F. Cloutman, 
A. E. Putnam and D. W. Kimball. 

In 1874, the wooden factory of Alonzo Nute, opened in 1849 
by Nute Bros., was destroyed by fire; but with the energy and 



32 FARMINGTON 

determination for which he was noted, ]\Ir. Nute began the con- 
struction of a new factory, with the result that a large brick 
building, 32x185 feet, four stories high, was erected in a very 
short time, on the site of the factory which had been burned. 
After 1875, Eugene P. and A. Irving Nute became their father's 
partners. 

Many of the shoe firms which had enjoyed the greatest pros- 
perity prior to the panic of 1893, not long afterward, for one 
reason or another, suspended operations, among them those of 
G. A. Jones, I. Hayes & Sons, A. Nute & Sons, Cloutman & 
Bingham, and Wallace, Elliott & Co. Following the closing of 
these factories, Drew's underwear mill was burned, leaving only 
two large manufacturing concerns in Farmington, the pro- 
prietors of the Edgerly factory, and J. F. Cloutman & Co. 

The people of Farmington did not lose courage, however, 
and soon started several industries to replace those which had 
been lost. Through the co-operation of the Farmnigton Improve- 
ment Association and the local Board of Trade a corporation 
which had purchased the Nute factory, the Farmington Shoe 
Co. was organized and with its two factories has become one of 
the largest and most important, as well as one of the most suc- 
cessful industries in town.. 

The factories in which the company are located were pur- 
chased of the Wallace, Elliott & Co. shoe firm of New York. 
They were erected by the late Hon. John F. Cloutman, who sold 
them to Wallace, Elliott & Co. The first and larger one was 
built in 1877; and the second in 1884. Each factory is four 
stories high. They are connected by a large inclosed passage 
and really form a big double factory. The firm does a very large 



HISTORICAL 33 

business, and employs about 250 persons at present, with a 
weekly pay roll of nearly $2,500. The average weekly produc- 
tion of shoes is about 600 dozen pairs, valued at about $25 a 
dozen. The firm's Boston office is at 165 Lincoln Street. The 
officers are: President, Elisha James, Jr.; Treasurer, E. W. Cox; 
General Manager, E. 0. Teague; Superintendent, W. S. Eraser. 

The large H. B. Edgerly factory has been in successful 
operation for many years, and is now the property of F. E. 
Edgerly, only son of the original proprietor, and his partner, 
C. E. Aldrich of Boston. 

The Berry factory and the Nute factory on Main Street, 
which are occupied by J. F. Cloutman, Jr., and by the Thayer, 
Osborne Shoe Co., are in constant operation. 

On the site of the old Hayes mill just below the village, is 
the two-story factory where John R. Hayes manufactures shook 
and lumber. A number of men are employed at the mill, and 
the business has become extensive. In close proximity to this 
mill is the knife factory of F. W. Coburn, Jr. Here a pros- 
perous business in the manufacture of knives is carried on, and 
the products of the factory have a wide reputation for their 
quality. 

Charles W. Jenness, who began the manufacture of shook 
about 1880, conducts a large and successful carton business, and 
manufactures shook at his mill on East Grove Street, which 
originally one of small size, is now among the largest of the 
kind in this section of the State. John H. Jenness is connected 
with his brother in manufacturing interests. 

On the same street is the last factory of the late A. W. 
Flanders, where that gentleman once conducted an excellent 



34 FARMINGTON 

business. 

The M. L. Hayes building on Central Street, occupied suc- 
cessively by J. R. Hayes, and the heel business of J. E. Hayes 
& Son, is now the brush factory of F. W. Brown. In the Jones 
factory on Main Street the Nutter Co. carries on an extensive 
business in the manufacture of heels. 

The carriage and sleigh factory and repository of B. F. 
Perkins is on the comer of High and Central Streets, on the 
site of the late Alvin Tibbetts' lath and woodwork mill. 

The Mortimer Shoe Co. began the manufacture of shoes in 
the Nute factory, about four years ago, but remained in this 
town only a short time. 

It is worth while in passing, to mention the fact that the 
first wax-thread sewing machine used in New Hampshire was 
brought to Farmington by the late Hon. J. F. Cloutman, who 
began the manufacture of shoes in 1854. 

With this account of Farmington 's industries, the subject 
may be closed. This town may well be proud of her growth 
and prosperity as a manufacturing village, and of the splendid 
way in which her citizens have met and triumphed over reverses 
and vicissitudes in the upbuilding of an industrial centre. 



MILITARY ACCOUNT. 

Revolution. 

General Richard Furber, by whom the town of Farmington 
was named, acted as adjutant or aide-de-camp at the surrender 
of Burgoyne at Saratoga in 1777, later rose to the rank of gen- 



HISTORICAL 35 

eral. He lived at Merrill's Corner where he died in 1848, at 
the age of ninety-five years. Several other Farmington men 
served during the war, but as this town was a part of Rochester 
at that time it is very difficult to ascertain who they were. 
Enoch Burnham was a sergeant in Capt. John Brewster's com- 
pany of Col. Pierre Long's regiment stationed at Newcastle from 
Aug. 7, 1776, to Jan. 7, 1777. Members of this company, in 
which Isaac Libby and several other Farmington soldiers were 
enlisted, joined the Northern Army in January, 1777, and were 
stationed at Fort Independence near Ticonderoga. 

Daniel Horn, Ebenezer Home, Lieut. John Ham, Jonathan 
French, Joseph Plummer, Samuel Jones and Benj. Furber ( ?) 
are names found on the records which indicate that Farmington 
sent many men into the service during the seven long years of 
the war. 



In the wars that followed the War for Independence, 
Farmington had many representatives who upheld the military 
record of the town, but it is in the War of the Rebellion that 
she, like her sister town, Milton, has won the greatest glory, and 
secured the most renown. 

Farmington in the Rebellion. 

When in April, 1861, Fort Sumpter fell, and the great 
struggle of the War of the Rebellion began, the patriotism and 
loyalty of the citizens of Farmington responded nobly to the 
President's call to arms for the preservation of the Union. 

The records show that 232 men responded and are credited 
to this town, most of whom belonged here. In this list will be 



36 FARMINGTON 

found the names of many who are numbered with the dead, for 
very many of them lost their lives in the service of their country. 
It is not necessary here to recount in detail the services which 
these men rendered in the four long years of suffering and con- 
flict. It is all familiar to the people of this town, sons and 
daughters, of the noble men who left their homes and loved ones 
to do their share for the cause of Liberty and Right, and the 
people of this town knowing that record, glory in the fact that 
Farmington's response was ready and loyal, and that their 
fathers were not afraid to go forth to battle and if necessary 
to die. Let us but remember as we read the roll, that we owe 
all that we possess to them, and, let us linger a moment over 
the roll of the brave and true soldiers whose names are recorded 
here. 

The Roll Call. 

Col. Ralph Carlton, killed July 17, 1862 ; Capt. A. W. Hayes ; 
Capt. G. H. Richardson; Capt. G. B. Johnson; Capt. G. H. 
Smith; Rev. Daniel P. Cilley, chaplain from 1861 to 1865; 
Quartermaster-Gen. Alonzo Nute, Sixth N. H. Vols., served also 
on Gen. Hawkins' staff of the Ninth N. Y. Zouaves. 



PROFESSIONAL MEN. 

Physicians. 

The first resident physician in Farmington was Dr. Benja- 
min Libby, who located here in 1800, setting up an office in 
the store which afterwards was made into a dwelling house for 



HISTORICAL 37 

Lemuel Rand. Dr. Libby entered the army in 1812. He left 
Farmington in 1816. 

Dr. David T. Parker was another of Farmington 's early 
physicians. His practice continued in this town more than fifty 
years. Dr. Parker's wife, too, was very skillful, and was called 
by the whole community "Mother Parker." Dr. Parker, the 
senior doctor's son, was a physician here also. 

Other physicians have been: A. M. Winn, 0. B. Hanson, 
W. A. Hersom, Rufus B. Foss, W. H. Nute of Exeter, Warren 
P. Blake, who removed to Springfield, Mass., John P. Elkins, 
who died Sept. 7, 1895, his brother, J. S. Elkins, Preston B. 
and John Young, John S. Parker of Lebanon, Me., brother of 
David T. and his elder son, John C. Parker, now of Providence, 
R. I., who was succeeded by Dr. Frank W. Blair of Boothbay 
Harbor, Me., and Dr. H. P. Wheatley, who has been here many 
years. Dr. G. H. Gray of Lynn, Mass., Dr. E. P. Huntress of 
Derry, Drs. Alvin and Roger S. York, Dr. Daniel P. Cilley now 
at Westboro, Mass., were formerly of this town. 

The father of the brothers Elkins was also a physician. It 
is indeed remarkable that a town should have so many instances 
of brothers following the same profession and of sons taking 
up that of their fathers. 

Dr. Geo. W, Ellison, who came here from Providence, R. I., 
about a year ago; Dr. CO. Rogers, who came here from Union 
several years ago; Dr. E. C. Perkins, who came from Maine 
about four or five years ago; Dr. R. H. Greeley, a native of 
Swanville, Me., and a Bowdoin graduate, who has been in prac- 
tice about nine or ten years in this town, and Dr. CO. Smith, 
who came in the fall of 1907, complete the list of able physicians 
who have practised here. 



38 FARMINGTON 

Lawyers and Statesmen. 

In the list of statesmen which Farmington has given to the 
State and Nation, the names of four men, perhaps, stand forth 
most prominently: Nehemiah Eastman, Joseph Hammons, Alonzo 
Nute, and Henry Wilson. Hon. Nehemiah Eastman was a dis- 
tinguished lawyer of Strafford County, State Senator from 1820 
to 1824, and representative in Congress during the years 1825-27. 

Dr. Joseph Hammons, who was the only physician in this 
town for many years, was in Congress 1829-33. 

Hon. Alonzo Nute, a manufacturer, was an officer in the 
Civil War, in which he rendered distinguished service. State 
Senator in 1867-68, and later, was a Representative in Congress 
from this State. 

Hon. Henry Wilson, born a poor farmer lad in 1812, through 
his individual enterprise and great natural ability, rose to the 
office of United States Senator from Massachusetts, and later 
to the second highest office in the gift of the Nation, Vice- 
President of the United States, during the second administra- 
tion of President Grant. 

Farmington has had and still has many lawyers of ability 
no less great. On the records we find the names of George N. 
Eastman, Col. Louis Bell, E. F. Cloutman, Weeks of Ossipee, 
E. H. Shannon of Laconia, G. E. Cochrane of Rochester, Frank 
Emerson, Charles Leighton of Lynn, Mass., A. H. Wiggin, I. E. 
Pearl, H. C. Waldron, now superintendent of schools in West- 
boro, Mass., and S. S. Parker. 

E. B. Hayes of Farmington practised law in Manchester 
several years ago.

SOCIETIES AND ORGANIZATIONS. 

Wilson Guards. — The former local military organization, 
Company F, Second Regt., N. H. N. G., first went into camp at 
Concord under the command of Capt. Joseph B. Cilley, who at 
his death in 18B6, was succeeded by Lieut. E. W. Emerson. 
Capt. Chas. H. Pitman, the next commander, after a long period 
of leadership, was succeeded by Capt. Herman J. Pike in 1895, 
who remained in that office until the company disbanded. 

Carlton Post, G. A. R., was organized May 24, 1882, replac- 
ing one which had been formed shortly after the war. The 
membership has never been large, as so many veterans of the 
great struggle of the Rebellion have passed to the Great Beyond, 
but the ' ' old soldiers ' ' have always taken a great interest in this 
little branch of the Grand Army, and the Post has enjoyed a 
very flourishing period of activity. 

The fraternal and social organizations of Farmington are 
many, and we regret that limited space prevents a complete his- 
tory of each, and a list of all the officers. An alphabetical list 
is as follows : —

ITEMS OF INTEREST. 

Farmington Public Library. — The first library association 
in this town was organized in 1853. On January 1, 1891, a pub- 
lic library and reading room was opened by an association here, 
and has its present location in the Opera House. The first pres- 
ident of the association was Isaac E. Pearl, Esq. The library 
contains several thousand volumes, which are free to the people 
of the town, and in constant circulation. It is open every secular 
evening in the week from 7 to 9 ; Saturday from 2 to 5 and 7 to 
9.30 P.M., and is under the careful and efficient supervision of 
the librarian, Miss Emily Goodwin. 

Farmington News. — This bright local newspaper was first 
issued, March 14, 1879, by the firm of J. E. Fernald & Son. It 
has a large circulation in this town and throughout this section 
of the State. It is printed in the Fernald Block at the corner of 
Central and Main Streets, and is issued every week. E. H. 
Thomas is the publisher. 

Opera House. — This theatre was opened in 1881, $20,000 
having been appropriated for its construction, and has been the 
scene of many a successful engagement, since the opening night, 
when Sol Smith Russell in "Edgewood Folks," was the attrac- 
tion. Lectures and speeches have been given here by distin- 
guished men and women, and many important civic and social 
meetings have been held here.

Gensus-1907 



The population of the towns of Farraington, Milton, 
Wakefield, Middleton and Brookfield has been arranged in 
families where that arrangement has been possible In ad- 
dition 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 resi- 
dents of this town, as the names of the non-residents appear 
only when one or both of the parents are still living in the 
town. After the name of each non-resident will be found 
the present address, when such address has been given to us. 
Non-residents are indicated by the (*). 

When a daughter in a family has married, her name 
taken in marriage appears after her given name in parenthe- 
sis, the name preceded by a small m, thus: (m ). 

Following the names of the population is the occupations. 
To designate these we have used the more common abbre- 
viations and contractions, as follows: Farmer — far; car- 
penter — 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 (including all who have reached 
the age of five years)— pi; housework — ho; laborer — lab; 
physician and surgeon — phy & sur; clergyman— clerg; mer- 
chant — mer; teacher— tr; blacksmith — blk; clerk — cl; book- 
keeper— bk kpr; lawyer — law; mechanic mech; machinist— 
mach; engineer— eng; maker — mkr; worker — wkr; work — wk; 
shoe shop operative — s sop; cotton or woolen mill operatives 
— mill op; weaver — weav; spinner — spin; electrician — elec; 
painter — ptr; carriage work — car wk; dress maker — dr mkr; 
insurance— ins; traveling salesman, or commercial traveler — 
sales, or coml trav; music teacher — mus tr; teamster — team; 
generalwork — genlwk; mariner — mar; employ — emp; retired 
— retd; telephone operative — tel op; telegraph operative— 
teleg op. 

This Census was compiled by a thorough canvass from 
house to house during the fall and winter of 1907-8, by Rev. 
BY. Davis, of Kents Hill, Me., and A. J. Bryant of Auburn, 
Maine.

Histoity of mnton 



Milton, in the north-eastern section of Strafford County, 
is an irregular township of 27,000 acres, forty miles from the 
State capital, Concord, and twenty miles north-west from Dover, 
the county seat. It is the youngest town, except RoUinsford in 
the county of Strafford, having been originally a portion of the 
town of Rochester, from which it was set off and incorporated 
June 11, 1802. 

The surface is comparatively level, except that section of 
the town traversed by Teneriffe Mountain, and the soil is good 
for pasturage. Milton is an agricultural, as well as a manu- 
facturing community, and a large percentage of the inhabitants 
are engaged in farming, while stock, too, is raised to some 
extent. 

Milton Three Ponds are the principal bodies of water, 
forming with the Salmon Falls river a chain of lakes. The 
river itself runs along the whole eastern boundary, uniting 
near the centre of the town line with one of its branches which 
crosses from the south part of the town of Wakefield. 

The principal villages are Milton and Milton Mills; both 
are on the boundary line of New Hampshire and Maine, . and 
are important industrial centres. Milton is on the North Con- 
way branch of the Boston & Maine Railroad; Milton Mills is 
connected by a stage line with the railroad at Union Village 
in Wakefield. The population in 1900 was 1625. 



HISTORICAL 91 

EARLY SETTLEMENT. 

The original settlers in Milton came principally from 
Dover, Madbury, Rochester and to^vns in that vicinity, and 
were a sturdy, industrious, and intelligent people, who even 
in the earliest days of the town manifested an interest in the 
education and religious welfare of themselves and their children. 

Jonathan Twombly, who took up a residence in the south 
part of the town about the year 1760, and Richard Walker, 
who came, probably, about the same time, share the honor of 
being the earliest white settlers in Milton. 

About ten or a dozen years later, in 1771 or 1772, John 
Twombly established himself in the so-called Varney neigh- 
borhood. His nearest neighbor, a man named Jenkins, lived 
upon Groodwin Hill at the time. Benjamin Scates was, perhaps, 
the next to make a home in town, settling on Plumer's Ridge 
about 1772 or 1773. Beard and Joseph Plumer, sons of John 
Plumer of Rochester, also settled at the Ridge, and may have 
been residents here even prior to the arrival of Mr. Scates. 
James C. Hayes, David Wallingford, Wm. Palmer, Elijah 
Home, and Moses Chamberlain were also among the pioneers. 

Paul Jewett, Amos Witham, Reuben Jones and others were 
the first settlers of the section near the West Branch river. 
They came probably about 1785 or 1786. 

At Milton Three Ponds, Samuel Palmer, Levi Bergen, John 
Fish, Paul Jewett, Pelatiah Hanscom, and Robert McGeoch were 
among the earliest settlers. 

Levi Jones, a native of Lebanon, Me., married Betsey 
Plumer of this town and settled here about the time of Milton's 



92 MILTON 

incorporation. 

Wm. Jones of Berwick, Me., married Charlotte Gushing of 
Dover in 1798, and settled here probably at about that time. 

John Remick, Jr., son of Wm. and Lydia Remick, was born 
at Kittery (Eliot) in 1771, married Mary, daughter of Capt. 
Edward and Eliza Butler of Portsmouth and settled here prob- 
ably in the early part of the year 1795. Thos. Remick of Kit- 
tery was here a number of years later. 

John Witham of Kittery (Eliot), too, was an early settler. 
Josiah Witham, Jones' junior by three years, married Mehitable 
Jones of Berwick and came here not long after 1790. 

Isaac Brackett of Berwick married Priscilla Jones, and 
came here prior to May, 1789. 

Tristram Goodwin, son of James and Sarah Goodwin, was 
born in Lebanon, June 14, 1781; married Susanna Mitchell, 
daughter of John and Abigail Mitchell of Durham, and came 
here to reside in the early days of the settlement. 

Robert Mathes, a native of Lee, N. H., was a settler here 
in 1797. The Mathes family came to this place, probably from 
Durham, settling at West Milton. 

Pelatiah Hanseom, Jr., son of Pelatiah and Susanna Han- 
scom, was born at Kittery (Eliot), Dec. 28, 1777, married Betsey 
Tibbetts at Berwick in 1803, and settled here prior to the win- 
ter of 1804. Ephraim Plumer, of Rochester, married Nancy 
McDuffee of the same town, and came here with the early set- 
tlers. The Roberts and Drew families, too, were among the 
pioneers.

INCORPORATION. 

State of New Hampshire, in the year of our Lord one 
thousand eight hundred and two. 

An Act to incorporate that part of the Town of Rochester 
in the County of Strafford commonly called the Northeast 
Parish, into a separate town by the name of Milton. 

Wliereas, a petition has been presented to the General Court 
by the inhabitants of that part of the Town of Rochester in 
the County of Strafford commonly called the Northeast Parish 
setting forth that some time prior to the year one thousand 
seven hundred and ninety-four the Town of Rochester at a 
legal meeting warned for that purpose, voted unanimously that 
said town should be divided into three towns, and a committee 
was chosen to run out and describe the lines of the same, that 
said committee accordingly made division of said Town of 
Rochester into three parts, that afterwards in the year one 
thousand seven hundred and ninety-four the said Town of 
Rochester appointed another committee who were not inhabit- 
ants of said Rochester to examine the lines aforesaid and make 
such alterations therein as they shall judge proper, that said 
committee on the twenty-eighth day of August in the same year 
made their report to said Town of Rochester that the former 
lines and boundaries of the proposed towns be established which 
report was at a legal meeting of said town unanimously accepted 
that the said Towti of Rochester in its present form was so 
large and the inhabitants so numerous as rendered it very 
inconvenient for them to transact business at their town meet- 
ings. 



HISTORICAL 95 

Wherefore, they pray that that part of the Town of 
Rochester commonly called the Northeast Parish within the 
bounds hereafter described, be incorporated into a separate 
town, the principal facts set forth in said petition being sub- 
stantiated and the prayer thereof appearing reasonable. 

Therefore, Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Rep- 
resentatives in General Court convened, that the lands and 
inhabitants contained within the northeasterly parish of said 
Rochester as described within the following bounds, viz. : Begin- 
ning at the south-easterly corner of the Town of Farmington 
and running north forty-six degrees east to Salmon Falls river 
and contain all the land between Farmington line and the 
eastern line or boundary of said State which is Salmon Falls 
river, be and they hereby are incorporated into a separate town 
by the name of Milton. 

And the said Town of Milton is hereby vested with all the 
powers, privileges and immunities to which other towns in this 
State are or may be entitled to agreeably to the Constitution 
and the laws of this State to have continuance and succession 
forever.

CHURCH HISTORY. 



During the early years of Milton's history, when the town 
was the Northeast Parish of Rochester, the religious instruction 
of the people here was inadequate in proportion to the taxes 
which they paid, and as early as 1774, a vote was passed to 
the effect that preaching be furnished them. 

The amount appropriated for the purpose, however, was 
not large enough to give entire satisfaction, and to accomplish 
that end, and in 1780 the voters in the Northeast Parish objected 
to paying the tax for the erection of a new meetinghouse at 
Norway Plains, although the old one at Haven's Hill was unfit 
for use, and many absolutely refused to pay the tax for the 
minister's support. 

As it was too great a distance for the people living in the 
remote sections of the parish to go to the Haven Hill meeting- 
house for divine worship, the injustice of taxation without any 
benefit received soon became apparent to all with the result that 
the Northeast Parish was set off from Rochester and incorporated 
as a separate town, the religious instruction of the people here 
thus falling to their own personal supervision and care. Before 



100 MILTON 

Milton had become a separate town from Rochester, the Rev. 
Joseph Haven of Rochester Hill had ministered to their spiritual 
needs, continuing to do so from 1776 to 1798. The first religious 
services known to have been held here were at the house of 
Lieut. Elijah Home on Plummer's Ridge. 

The first minister employed by the town after its incorpora- 
tion was Rev. Reuben Nayson, from Wakefield, who preached 
during the year 1801, receiving a salary of $82 for his services. 

The first meetinghouse in Milton was erected on the Ridge 
in accordance with a vote passed at the annual meeting in 1802. 
John Fish, Beard Plumer and Gilman Jewett, were the execu- 
tive committee. The lot on which the building was erected was 
purchased of Thomas and Aaron Downies for $26. The meeting- 
house was completed at a cost of about $2,400, by Caleb Win- 
gate, Capt. Daniel Hayes, and Gilman Jewett. The net cost of 
the church, however, was not so large, as the pews were sold for 
nearly $2,000. The first service was held in 1804, and from 
that time until after 1830, the meetinghouse was constantly in 
use. The first preachers to occupy the pulpit were Rev. Gideon 
Burt and Rev. Christopher Page, both of whom were here in 
1804. 

After 1838, no regular services were held at the house on 
the Ridge, but the Rev. M. Willey preached there once a month 
during the j'ear (except during the winter when the church was 
closed) until 1845, shortly after which the building went out 
of use. It was sold to the to'wn in 1855, and was, not long after- 
ward, converted into a town house, which purpose the venerable 
building has served down to the present time. 



HISTORICAL 101 

First Congregational Church. 

The ''First Church of Christ" of Milton was organized at 
the old meetinghouse on Plummer's Ridge, Sept. 8, 1815, with 
the following members: Barnabus Palmer, Hatuel Nute, Benja- 
min Scates, Abigail Scates, Deborah Wentworth, Mary Cham- 
berlain, Achsah Plumer and Mrs. Nutter. The record 

of the institution of the church is signed by Curtis Coe, mis- 
sionary. 

The village at the ' ' Three Ponds ' ' having increased in popu- 
lation, the people there desired a nearer place of worship. A 
"Union" meetinghouse was erected in the village, and dedicated 
Nov. 19, 1835. Here the Congregationalists and members of 
other denominations held services. 

During the pastorate of the Rev. Mr. Willey, — in 1841 — 
a parish house, which, with subsequent renovations, is the pres- 
ent parsonage, was erected on a lot purchased of Isaac Worster. 

In 1860, the remainder of the Worster lot was purchased, 
and soon after the present meetinghouse was built. It was ded- 
icated Jan. 9, 1862. In 1886 repairs, the expense of which was 
$1,000, were made on the meetinghouse and parsonage. In 1895, 
the interior was remodelled, and renovations made, the whole 
expense amounting to $1,200. 

Mr. Lewis Worster Nute, whose mother was born where 
the present church now stands, bequeathed $10,000 to the church, 
making the present funds about $11,000. 

The following is the list of pastors, both acting and resident : 

Revs. Curtis Coe, 1815; Dyer Burge; James Walker, 1819- 
1826 (Sept.) ; Benj. G. Willey, 1832 (Dec.) -1846; E. F. Abbott,

Robert T. Osgood, 1891 (June) -1893 (Jan.) ; Myron P. Dickey, 
1893 (April), present pastor of the church. Between 1826 and 
1832, the church was supplied by Revs. Clement Parker, E. S. 
Anderson, and by missionaries. 

The total number of people admitted to membership in the 
church has been about 350. The present membership is about 
130. 

Free Baptist Church. 

For a number of years previous to 1860, meetings were 
held by the townspeople of the Free Baptist profession. The 
deed of the land for the first meetinghouse was given May 21, 
1859, and the church was built that year. 

The Free Baptist Church of Milton was organized May 
17, 1860, and the Rev. D. P. Cilley, chairman of the council, 
gave the right hand of fellowship. The following persons on 
examination had been found "in fellowship and eligible to 
church membership": 

Rev. E. Tuttle, Bro. Luther Hayes, Fred H. Tuttle, Frances 
Jones, Samuel Jones, E. G. Downs, Martha A. Varney, Benj. 
Scates, Mary H. Tuttle, Mary Jones, N. B. Varney, Elinor 
Hubbard. 

Luther Hayes was chosen Clerk of the church; Samuel 
Jones, Deacon; and Rev. E. Tuttle, Pastor, all by a unanimous 



HISTORICAL 103 

vote. Rev. E. Tuttle and Benj. Scates were appointed delegates 
to the New Durham Q. M., to ask for admission to that body. 
Rev. Ezra Tuttle, first pastor of the church, was given a 
dismissal April 30, 1863, and was succeeded by Rev. S. P. 
Fernald, who remained several months. Rev. J. M. Bedell was 
received June 30, 1864, dismissed May 4, 1865; Rev. N. C. 
Lothrop, Jan. 5, 1866-Dec. 2, 1867; Rev. I. C. Guptill, May 2, 
1868-April 3, 1869 ; Rev. Ezra Tuttle, who came from Wisconsin 
for a second pastorate, April 30, 1870-Jan. 6, 1872; Rev. Jos. 
F. Joy, Aug. 31, 1872-June 6, 1874; Rev. E. Owen, April, 1876- 
Dec. 30, 1877; Rev. E. G. York, Sept. 28, 1878-April 5, 1879; 
Rev. C. L. Plummer, Aug. 12, 1879-July 2, 1881; Rev. Wm. 
Waldron — remained about two and a half years, closing his 
period of service about June 21, 1885 ; Rev. C. E. Mason of the 
Cobb Divinity School, came July 18, 1885, and was, after a suc- 
cessful pastorate, succeeded by Rev. E. R. Chadwick, also of 
the Cobb Divinity School, who remained less than two years 
because of ill health. Rev. G. F. Durgin supplied the church 
until Rev. John Manter came to begin a pastorate which con- 
tinued more than seven years. During Mr. Manter 's residence 
here, the meetinghouse was destroyed by fire, and rebuilt on 
the same site shortly afterward. Mr. Manter closed his pas- 
torate here to accept one at Springvale, Maine. His successor, 
Rev. F. E. Carver, remained three and a half years, at the end 
of which time he went to Fort Fairfield, Maine. Rev. C. B. 
Osborne came in January, 1900, for a pastorate which he closed 
October 27, 1907, when he went to Franeonia. Since that time 
the church has been supplied by visiting clergymen. 



104 MILTON 

Catholic Church, Milton, 

The Catholics of Milton began to hold services at the vil- 
lage about a dozen or fifteen years ago. Clergymen from the 
churches at Rochester and Gonic have supplied the church, which 
is a mission station and has not j^et had any resident pastor. 
Among the clergymen who have ministered to the church here 
have been the Rev. Fr. Lemie, Rev. Fr. Laplante, now of Berlin, 
Rev. Fr. Laroque, Rev. Fr. Lesard, Rev. Fr. Melancon, and 
Rev. Fr. Godin, who comes from Gonic every fortnight, or as 
often as he is able, to say mass and to administer to the spiritual 
wants of the people. 

The first Catholic Church here was built about ten years 
ago. It was burned about two years ago, and was replaced by 
the neat little chapel on Charles Street. About thirty-five fam- 
ilies attend the church. Mass is said at eight o'clock A.M. every 
fortnight, when very stormy weather does not prevent Father 
Godin 's coming up from Gonic. 

Congregational Church of IVIilton Mills. 

Previous to 1871, the Calvin Baptists and Congregationalists 
of Milton Mills united in maintaining public worship in the old 
"Union" meetinghouse erected in 1834. 

Theological students supplied the pulpit here until the Con- 
gregational Church was organized Sept. 26, 1871. The church, 
at its formation, had a membership of about twenty people. 
Ebenezer Osgood and Benjamin G. Adams were the first deacons,- 
William McGibbon, the first clerk. 

The first settled pastor was Rev. Darius B. Scott, who came 
to the church in 1872. After a pastorate of several years ' dura- 



HISTORICAL 106 

tion, he was succeeded by Rev. Geo. Michael, who remained two 
or three years. Rev. Chas. F. Goldsmith came next, and 
remained until May 22, 1881. Rev. G. S. Butler came Aug. 1, 
1882, and preached here during a period of four of five years, 
part of which time he supplied the church at Union. Rev. H. 
S. Ives came in the fall or winter of 1887 and remained two or 
three years. Rev. E. J. Akin supplied here for several months 
during a time when the society had no settled pastor. Rev. I. 
B. Short was the last resident preacher at the church, coming 
here in 1891, and remaining until about 1894. Since that time 
the church has depended upon theological students or visiting 
ministers for preaching and public worship. 

First Free Baptist Church. 

The First Free Baptist Church was reorganized by Rev. 
Gershom Lord, in 1802, and consisted of eight members. Sam- 
uel Runnells and Bart. Miller were first deacons, and Elder Lord 
was clerk. Rev. Gershom Lord was the first preacher, and was 
succeeded by Humphrey Goodwin, who was ordained in 1807, 
and continued to preach until his removal to Hollis, in 1814. 
Elder David Blaisclell supplied from 1815 to 1830. 

A house of worship was built in 1818, in the west part of 
the town, near Milton Mills, and replaced by a new one on the 
same ground, in 1840. 

Theodore Stevens became pastor in 1834, left in 1836, 
returned in 1839, and was succeeded, in 1843, by Elder J. Fuller- 
ton; by Horace Stanton, in 1847; and subsequently by Z. Jor- 
dan, Wm. Hurlin, Seth Perkins, Aaron Ayer, Dexter Waterman, 
James Potter ; Rev. Mr. McLain, in 1872 ; Hosea Quimby, 1875 ; 



106 MILTON 

and at Mr. Qiiimby's death, in October, 1878, by Rev. B. F 
Sherwood, who remained until about 1880, when Rev. H. P. 
Mansur came. He remained until about 1885. The following 
have been pastors since that time : Revs. G. A. Anderson, 1887 ; 
C. E. Hurd, 1888-93; E. W. Fernald, 1894-7; R. W. Churchill, 
1898. 

Methodist Episcopal Church, Milton Mills. 

Methodist meetings were held at Milton Mills as early as 
1870, in Fox's Hall. The church was organized about 1871, and 
a meetinghouse erected the following year. 

The present parsonage was purchased during the pastorate 
of the Rev. A. M. Markey, 1899-1902. 

The following clergjnnen have been pastors of the church: 

Revs. I. J. Tibbetts, 1870-73; James Crowley, 1873-75; 
N. H. McDaniels, 1875-76; A. B. Carter, 1876-79; J. M. Bean, 
1879-81; N. C. Bartlett, 1881-82; J. P. Frye, 1882-83; J. J. 
Davis, 1883-84; H. E. Allen, 1884-87; G. J. Lowe, 1887-88; 
I. J. Tibbetts, 1888-89; M. H. Evans, 1889; G. F. Durgin, 
1889-90; B. F. Estes, 1890-92; G. S. CoUer, 1892-95; Wm. 
Thompson, 1895-97; E. J. Dean, 1897-99; A. M. Markey, 1899- 
1902; S. E. Quimby, 1902-04; Willis Hohnes, 1904. 

The present membership is forty-six. The recording secretary 
is Mr. Fred L. Mudgett. 

Nute Chapel, Nute Ridge. 

The Nute Chapel was built about 1891 or 1892, to be used 
for "Union" meetings, from a fund left by the late Hon. Lewis 
W. Nute, of this town, to whom Milton owes so much. The first 



HISTORICAL 107 

pastor was Rev. Wm. A. Bacon, who remained several years. 
The present pastor of the church is Rev. Robert M. Peacock, 
who bar \een here about ten years. 

Thejre was a Christian Church at West Milton about fifty 
years ago, but no services have been held there by that society 
for many years. 



INDUSTRIES. 



There are very few towns on the Atlantic slope which possess 
such excellent facilities for the development of water power as 
the town of Milton. The Salmon Falls river, which, with its 
tributaries traverses and bounds the township, is superior in 
available water power to all but one of the rivers of a similar 
size flowing into the Atlantic Ocean. The declivity of the river 
from its source (East Pond) to the sea is 499 feet, and more 
than half of this total fall (275 feet) is within the limits of 
Milton, giving this town the greatest water power on the river. 

The Cocheco Manufacturing Company of Dover have an 
available water power of 1,000 horse power; and a fall of 36 
feet; the Great Falls Manufacturing Company of Somersworth, 
one of 2,500 horse power occasioned by a fall of 62 feet. 

It is interesting to compare the facilities of these important 
corporations with those of the town of Milton. 

It is possible for one plant to utilize, from the pond to and 
including the flume privilege, a fall of 140 feet, which with a 
run of 12,000 or more cubic feet of water per minute, will 



108 MILTON 

develop from 2,500 to 3,000 horse power. One horse power being 
the rate of doing 33,000 foot-pounds of work per minute, the 
total power available would be from at least 82,500,000 to 99,- 
000,000 foot-pounds of work a minute. As the foot-pound is 
the work done in lifting a mass of one pound through one foot, 
it can readily be seen that the potential energy of the water fall 
in Milton is indeed enormous. 

This does not include the fall of 47 feet at Milton Mills, 
with 231 horse power, nor that of Spaulding's upper mill with 
a fall of 21 feet and a horse power of 375. 

The first dam in town was built on the site of the present 
main dam at Milton Village, by Samuel Palmer about the year 
1784. Saw mills and grist mills were built on each side. At the 
flume about that time was the old Jones saw and grist mill, 
washed away by the freshet of 1786. The Leighton privilege 
was located near the present upper leather board mill, and was 
one of the earliest in town. At this place in 1816, Thomas 
Leighton erected a cotton mill which he operated more than 
twenty years. The other privileges on the river were also utilized 
at an early date. 

Among the industries at Milton Mills in the early days of 
the town were several saw mills, a crude woolen mill, and a 
distillery where Stephen Watson manufactured whiskey from 
potatoes, 

Gibnan Jewett, Nathaniel Jewett, Asa Jewett and a Mr. 
Wedgewood transformed the old woolen mill into a lathe and 
turning mill about sixty-five or seventy years ago, after which 
it was operated more or less irregularly up to the year 1847, 
when it was purchased by John Townsend, who used the machin- 



HISTORICAL 109 

ery for the manufacture of fine flannels, until 1861, when the 
mill was burned. Mr. Townsend was a wonderfully astute buyer, 
and manufacturer, and one who understood the art of selling 
the manufactured goods. As a result, he was very successful. 
In June, 1863, he opened a much larger factory which replaced 
the mill that had been burned, and after continuing the manu- 
facture of flannels for some time, sold the mill to Mudge, Saw- 
yer & Co., of Boston, Mass. This firm, after occupying it for 
about six years, disposed of it to the Waumbeck Company, a 
stock corporation, of which John D. Sturtevant of Boston was 
the managing agent. Geo. W. Olney was the first superintendent 
under the Waumbeck Company, and was succeeded by Benj. J. 
Adams. During the management of John A. Buguey, a differ- 
ent concern assumed control of the mill, the Waumbeck Woolen 
Co. The mill was burned in 1898. 

The Miltonia Mills were built by Henry H. Townsend in 
1872. Operations were begun in 1873, Mr. Townsend and his 
partner, Mr. S. H. Atkins, carrying on the manufacture of felt 
under the firm name of Townsend & Co. Felt was the principal 
output of the mill up to the year 1881, when it was replaced by 
blankets, and the plant called the Miltonia Mills. The original 
mill with the new factory and additions, make up the present 
plant. 

Mr. Henry Townsend died June 25, 1904, and was succeeded 
by his son, Mr. John E. Townsend, the present owner. Sixty- 
five hands are employed, and the industry has grown to exten- 
sive proportions. 

On the site of the shoe factory occupied by Andrews Bros., 
Edward Brierly erected a felt mill about forty years ago, where 



110 MILTON 

he carried on a large business, employing a fair number of hands 
until it was burned in the spring or early part of the summer 
of 1873. He rebuilt the mill soon afterward, and the property 
later came into the possession of David H. Buffum of Somers- 
worth. After Mr. Buffum's death, his son, Harry Buffum, sold 
it to Varney & Lane, who began the manufacture of shoes. The 
next owners of the factory were the Gale Shoe Co., of Haverhill, 
who, after several years of successful operation, leased the prop- 
erty to Andrews & Co., of Everett, Mass., who, under the name 
of the Boynton Shoe Co., carry on the industry successfully at 
the present time. 

At West Milton, formerly called Good win ville, John E. 
and Chas. Goodwin built and operated a shoe factory which soon 
made that village a prosperous place. After the business had 
been carried on with success for a dozen or fifteen years, the 
factory was closed, John E. Goodwin going to Dover to take 
charge of a factory there, and Charles to become a traveling 
salesman for a Boston firm. 

At South Milton, in the forties or fifties, Eli and Hiram 
Wentworth had a factory but their business was discontinued 
many years ago. 

Milton Village with the excellent facilities for the utiliza- 
tion of water power which she is so fortunate to possess, has 
become a prosperous and active industrial community, like her 
sister village, Milton Mills. With her great shoe factory, leather- 
board and paper mills, and other industries, all enjoying an 
extensive and growing business, and employing many hands, 
she presents to the visitor, as she nestles between the mountain 
and the river and pond, the appearance of a perfect little hive 



HISTORICAL 111 

of industry and activity. 

Were it not for the law suits and grasping methods of the 
owners of water privileges here in the early days of the town 
by which the Great Falls Manufacturing Company, about the 
year 1820, were prevented from utilizing the water power and 
establishing a plant, Milton probably would be an important 
city. The tremendous natural and artificial advantages still 
remain, however, and are being utilized more and more. Milton 
is constantly growing in prosperity and wealth, and the time 
seems not far distant when this town, increasing and developing 
her industrial activity, will become one of the most important 
manufacturing centres in eastern New Hampshire. 



MILITARY HISTORY. 

There is nothing in the history of the town of Milton, which 
is more worthy of a detailed and comprehensive account, noth- 
ing which confers more honor and glory upon her people, noth- 
ing which gives her so noble a right to one of the highest places 
among the towns and cities of New Hampshire as her military 
record, and the sympathy, assistance, and steadfast, self-sacrific- 
ing loyalty she has given to our country whenever the Nation 
was in peril or in need of aid. To do her military history jus- 
tice is a task which should be attempted only by one familiar 
with the men and ideals of her earlier days, one who has inherited 
a love for her and for all that is hers, for no one who does not 
truly know and love the town could do it well. 



112 MILTON 

The military history of IMilton antedates that of the town 
itself, for it was almost a quarter century after the Revolution 
closed that the ''Northeast Parish" of Rochester became a town. 
It is recorded that manj^ citizens of this part of Rochester left 
their homes to join the Continental Army and to do their share 
toward the winning of the independence of the colonies. One 
of the first men who enlisted from Rochester was John Bergin 
of ]\Iilton Three Ponds, who signed the roll on the second day 
of June, in 1775. He was a sergeant in Capt. Titcomb's Com- 
pany. Timothj'^ Ricker, too, was in the American service, a man 
who possessed so magnificent a physique, that he served as one 
of the body guards of General Washington. 

Samuel Nute, sergeant in Capt. Wentworth's Company of 
New Hampshire volunteers, was promoted to the rank of second 
lieutenant in the regiment Nov. 11, 1776, and served until Sept. 
16, 1777. Daniel Cook, too, was a sergeant, a member of Capt. 
Benj. Ellis' Company in Col. Scammel's regiment. Joseph Pearl 
was in Capt. Rowell 's Company of Col. Nathan Hale 's Battalion, 
and William Palmer served in the Second N. H. Regiment in 
1780. At the battle of Bunker Hill where so many New Hamp- 
shire men were engaged, jMilton was represented by William 
Warren, who was wounded during that famous fight. 

Milton's record in the War of 1812 is no less glorious. 
This was the first struggle in which she as an incorporate town 
sent men into the service of the Nation. Fifty-four men were 
furnished from Milton alone, for the army and the navy, more 
than a third of those able to bear arms going to the front! 
Milton indeed had just cause to rejoice at the outcome, and the 
final and lasting establishment of American independence, and 



HISTOEICAL 113 

the famous celebration held in the old T. C. Lyman tavern, April 
15, 1815, was one which fitly manifested the joy and satisfac- 
tion of the people here over the outcome of the war. 

New England, being far removed from the seat of war 
between Mexico and the United States, and opposed to the 
policy which brought on the conflict, took little part in the 
Mexican War, and it was carried on and brought to a successful 
close, for the most part, by the men of the South and West, 
though New England, indeed, was well represented and by no 
means played the part of the shirk. 

The great struggle of the Rebellion, however, was the true 
test of the spirit and patriotism of the people of the towns in 
this section of the North, and as in all the former struggles the 
citizens of Milton were not found wanting. They took a strong 
and emphatic stand against slavery and dis-union, and strong 
resolutions were passed in opposition to both. But they did not 
stop there. Believing that deeds and not words are the true 
indication to character and sincerity they made active prepara- 
tions to assist in the prosecution of the war. Scarcely had Fort 
Sumpter capitulated and the President's call for volunteers been 
received throughout the North than the names of men of Milton 
were on the enlistment rolls, and the soldiers were ready to 
march to the front. "Their acts of bravery were recorded on 
nearly every field during the four years' struggle." 

There were approximately 355 able bodied voters in the 
town at the outbreak of the war, and of this number 150 enlisted, 
almost one-half of the male population going to the front! 

In response to the quota of 91 men demanded from Milton 
by the drafts, this town sent 103. This record is one of which 



114 MILTON 

every Miltonian is and may be justly proud, for it is indeed 
a worthy one. From a financial standpoint, too, Milton's record 
does not suffer. Milton, with a population of 1,862 people, 
should have given for the support of the war, about $55,000, 
in proportion per capita to the population of New Hampshire, 
and the total amount furnished by the State. 

This proportion of $55,000 was exceeded by almost $30,000, 
the town voting the sum of $79,500 for the use of the Nation. 

This is the record then of the town of Milton in the great 
crises of our country. It is not necessary to recount in detail 
the individual services of the soldiers of the town, for the events 
and struggles in which they distinguished themselves are familiar 
to all. Their courage and pluck were unbounded; they fought 
and suffered, yes, and died with that indomitable will, that love 
of liberty, and that heroism which characterized their fathers 
and is still the legacy of their sons, handed down since the days 
of Sullivan and Stark and Hale, as their most priceless heritage 
to be preserved unsullied and undimmed from generation to 
generation, so long as the Republic exists. 



EDUCATIONAL ACCOUNT. 

The first teacher employed by the to-mi of Milton was James 
F. Maston, who kept the winter term of 1803 in a school build- 
ing erected on the Ridge. He received as wages a sum equivalent 
to about $25 or $26, and was "boarded around." 

Miss Mary Walbridge, the first woman teacher engaged by 



HISTORICAL 115 

the town, taught the summer term of 1804, receiving two pounds 
eight shillings (about $12) as compensation for her services. 
The schoolhouse at the foot of Silver Street, one of the "little 
red" buildings so common years ago, was constructed in 1827. 
It was renovated, and made a two-story structure in 1853, and 
continued in use as a school building until about 1890, when 
it was sold. 

In 1891, the present grammar school building was erected, 
and is the "proud possessor" of the bell which was formerly in 
the old schoolhouse, and which still performs its function effi- 
ciently and well. The central school building at Milton Mills 
has, for a number of years, been used by both the higher gram- 
mar and lower high school grades there. 

The first attempt at the establishment of a high school in 
Milton was made by the Rev. Ezra S. Anderson, in 1832. The 
most successful of the earlier institutions, however, was the 
Classical Institute, classes being held in the old Union meeting- 
house, remodeled in 1866, for that purpose. Many men of prom- 
inence in the community and State, today, point with pride and 
satisfaction to the early training they received there. 

The Nute High School was founded in 1889, as was the 
Nute Library, in accordance with the provisions of the will of 
Lewis Worster Nute, a native of Milton who died in 1888. 
Among the many worthy benefactions which Mr. Nute 
bequeathed to his townsmen were the $125,000 for the institu- 
tion which bears his name, and $50,000 for the public schools. 
As a result of Mr. Nute's generosity and the praiseworthy 
interest which Milton people have always had in education, this 
town has splendid educational facilities, which are second to 
those of no town of a similar size in New Hampshire. 



116 MILTON 

PROFESSIONAL MEN. 

Physicians. 

Perhaps the earliest resident physician at Milton Village 
was Dr. Stephen Drew, a native of Newfield, Me., who came in 
the early days of the to^vn, about the year 1820, and practised 
until 1873, a long period of more than fifty years of activity. 

Dr. D. E. Palmer came some time in the latter part of the 
decade 1850-1860, and remained until about 1865, when he went 
to Tuftonborough. Dr. G. W. Peavey, who came here from 
Ossipee, carried on the practice which Dr. Palmer had left, and 
remained about four years, at the end of which time he removed 
to Somersworth, where he died. Dr. Nute succeeded Dr. Peavey, 
but stayed only a short time. For several years there was no 
resident physician at the village until Dr. H. F. Pitcher came 
in 1879. Dr. Pitcher, after continuing in practice here about 
four years, went to Haverhill, where he still carries on the 
practice of his profession. - 

The Rev, Frank Haley, M.D., who acted as pastor of the 
Congregational Church, was also a practising physician here 
about the middle of the seventies. 

Dr. W. F. Wallace, Milton's next physician, came in 1883. 
After about four years of practice here, he went to Bradford 
in 1887, in which year Dr. C. D. Jones, a native of Milton, and 
a graduate of Harvard, began practice here. Dr. Jones gave 
up his practice about the year 1891. 

Dr. J. Dearborn was here a short time in the latter eighties. 

Dr. M. A. H. Hart, like Dr. Jones, a Milton man, came here 
the same year (1891). After graduating at the University of 



HISTORICAL 117 

the City of New York, Dr. Hart practised about three years in 
Fall River, Mass., at the end of which time he came to his 
native town, to begin a practice which has now grown to exten- 
sive proportions. 

Dr. W. F. Wallace returned to Milton in 1893, and practised 
until his removal to Plaistow four years later. Dr. John Wal- 
lace, a native of Ireland, came here in 1897. Three years later 
he removed to Roxbury, Mass. 

At Milton Mills, the first physician to carry on an extensive 
practice was Dr. Reuben Buck, a native of Massachusetts, who 
lived in Acton, and visited patients in this village as early as 
1830, and continued to reside here until his death. Prior to Dr. 
Buck's practice here, ,Dr. Powers of Acton and Dr. Russell of 
Wakefield, attended sick calls. 

Dr. Jonathan S. Calef, who came from Maine, married one 
of Dr. Buck's daughters and settled here not many years after 
the latter 's arrival. He remained for some time, going from 
Milton to Manchester, later to Boston, Mass., and finally to San 
Francisco, Cal., where he died. 

Dr. John L. Swinerton, from Newfield, Maine, was in prac- 
tice in this village, contemporary with Dr. Buck, remaining 
here about twenty-five years. At the end of that time he went 
to Union where, later, he died. 

Dr. Jeremiah Crosby Buck, a son of Dr. Reuben, began 
practice here during the latter years of his father's residence 
in this locality, and continued in active practice almost up to 
the time of his death, which occurred about the year 1890. 

Dr. Chas. E. Swasey, who had been an army surgeon dur- 
ing the Civil War, married another of Dr. Reuben Buck 's daugh- 



118 MILTON 

ters, and began the practice of his profession shortly after the 
close of the war. He remained here about five years, removing, 
at the end of that time, to Rochester, from which place he went 
to Somersworth, where he died May 30, 1907. His remains were 
brought to his native town and buried in the Roadside Cemetery 
just outside the village. 

Dr. Wm. E. Pillsbury, a native of Shapleigh, Me., came 
sometime during the latter part of the decade 1860-1870, and 
remained until February, 1907. 

Dr. Charles W. Gross came at about the same time, and 
has enjoyed a long and successful practice which he still carries 
on at the present time. 

Dr. Frank Weeks, a graduate of the Baltimore Medical 
College, came to this village in March, 1902, and is one of the 
present resident physicians. 

Dr. L. B. Bradford came here about the month of June, 
1907, but remained only a short time. 

Dr. Hugh D. Grant, like Dr. Weeks, an alumnus of the 
Baltimore Medical College, began practice at this place during 
the latter part of the summer of 1907, and has resided here 
since that time. 

Lawyers. 

Ichabod Jordan practised law in Milton Mills nearly sixty- 
five or seventy years ago. He remained several years, going 
at the end of that time to Great Falls (Somersworth), where he 
continued to practice until his death. Wm. A. Kimball was 
the next lawyer here. He remained a few years, and then went 
to Rochester, where, later, he died. Frank Weeks, the next 



HISTORICAL 119 

practitioner, resided here several years, subsequently removing 
to West Buxton, Maine, where he died. 

Edwin Cloutman practised here several years, until his 
removal to Farmington, where he practised until his death. 

Forrest L. March commenced the practice of law here about 
the year 1900, after having been admitted to the bar of Maine. 
He is still in practice at the village. 

Milton Village has had but one resident attorney, Harry 
B. Amey, who came in 1897. He removed several years later 
to Island Pond, Vt.

MILTON'S CENTENNIAL. 

Events of the Day. 
"The centennial celebration of the town of Milton, held 
August 30, 1902, was in honor of the one hundredth anniver- 
sary of the first town meeting. This meeting convened at the 
tavern of Lieut. Elijah Home, August 30, 1802, only a short time 
after the charter, which gave Milton its independent existence, 
had been signed by Governor Oilman. This instrument had 



120 MILTON 

been granted at the June session of the legislature of New 
Hampshire at the petition and largely through the efforts of 
Capt. Beard Plumer, one of the representatives from Rochester, 
who, with others, felt that the time had come for Milton to sever 
the ties which bound her to the mother town. 

"At the annual meeting held in March, 1902, it was voted 
to celebrate in an appropriate manner the closing of the first 
century of the town's existence. An appropriation was made 
and a general committee selected. As a result of the able and 
painstaking efforts of this committee, together with those chosen 
to assist, the observance of the centennial was made eminently 
fitting to mark the close of the first century of Milton's history. 

"Saturday, August 30, 1902, was a beautiful day; there was 
scarcely a cloud in the sky and the temperature was ideal for 
the purposes of the occasion. Sunrise was accompanied with 
the ringing of bells and a cannon salute of thirty-three guns. 
One hundred guns were fired during the day, a second thirty- 
three at noon and the remainder at sunset. Although the cele- 
bration had practically begun on Friday night with the huge 
bonfire on the summit of the historic Mt. Teneriffe, it was not 
until Saturday morning that the guests commenced to arrive 
in large numbers. 

"Every incoming train was heavily laden and hundreds 
came in teams from surrounding towns. It was the largest 
crowd that Milton ever saw, being variously estimated by the 
press at from seven to ten thousand. 

"From 8.30 to 10 o'clock field and water sports were held; 
from 9 to 10 o'clock the Hanson American band of Rochester 
gave a concert on the Upper square. Then came the street 



HISTORICAL 121 

parade. This was a fine feature of the day, including many 
beautifully trimmed floats and private teams, bicycles, and not 
a few grotesque and humorous make-ups. The marshal was 
Major Charles J. Berry, Milton Mills, N. H. ; assistant marshal, 
James F. Reynolds, Wakefield, Mass. ; aides, Clifford A. Berry 
and Charles Manser, Milton Mills; Walter Holden, Wakefield, 
Mass.; Scott Ramsdell, Samuel E. Drew, and Fred S. Hartford, 
Milton. 

"Following the parade a good old-fashioned New England 
dinner was served in large tents, on the Nute High School 
grounds, to over two thousand people. It was at high noon, 
also, that the new town clock in the Congregational Church 
was officially started. This was presented to the town of Milton 
by Mr. Albert 0. Mathes of Dover, N. H., as a memorial to the 
Rev. James Doldt, who was pastor of the Congregational Church 
from 1850 to 1871. 

' ' Promptly at two o 'clock the commemorative exercises 
began in the grove, on the Nute High School grounds, Hon. 
Elbridge W. Fox, of Milton Mills, Ex-Senator from this district, 
presiding as President of the day. In addition to those upon the 
official programme, Mayor Bradley of Rochester spoke in behalf 
of the mother town and Mr. Edward P. Nichols, of Lexington, 
Mass., treasurer of the Great Falls Manufacturing Company, 
delivered a short address. The violin used as an accompani- 
ment to the singing was played by Miss Annie B. Kimball, of 
Milton, while the old violincello, which took the place of the 
church organ in the early days of the town, was restrung and 
played by Mr. Sumner Hodsdon of Dover, N. H. 

' ' One of the most attractive and appropriate features of the 



122 MILTON 

day was the collection of antiquities in the old "Worcester House, 
itself past one hundred years in age. These rare and valuable 
articles, from 75 to 200 or more years old and gathered from 
many sources, by Mr. Albert 0. Mathes, of Dover, N. H., were 
intimately connected with the early history of the town. Many 
of the interesting buildings in the village had placards placed 
upon them, giving the date of their erection and other matters 
of interest. Among these were the following: The home of Dr. 
Stephen Drew, 1820-1873, built by John Bergin in 1773; the 
house in which Lewis W. Nute was born; the building formerly 
the Union meetinghouse, 1838-1859; John Fish's house, 1794, 
where was located the first post-office in 1818; the site of the 
first tavern built in 1787 by Benjamin Palmer; the house of 
Thomas Leighton, 1810-1860; the site of the house of Oilman 
Jewett, first town clerk, 1800; the site of the first tannery, 
owned by John Bergin, 1773. 

"The celebration was, in every respect, an unqualified suc- 
cess, and reflected the greatest credit upon all concerned. All 
of those present, whether natives of the town or friends, felt 
that the observance was in every way worthy of the occasion 
and of Milton."

Histotry of Olakcficld. 



Wakefield, in the south-easterly corner of Carroll County, 
is fifty miles from Concord, and is bounded on the north-west 
by Ossipee and Effingham on the south-east by Milton, south- 
west by Middleton and Brookfield, and on the east by Newfield, 
Maine. 

The surface is diversified with hills, rocks, and ponds and 
is very broken, but there is much excellent land for agriculture, 
and the soil when brought under proper cultivation is very pro- 
ductive. 

The largest body of water in the township is East Pond, 
situated on the boundary line of Maine and New Hampshire, 
and lying partly in Wakefield and partly in Acton, Maine. It 
is a beautiful sheet of water, about three miles wide and six 
miles long, and formerly bore the Indian name of Newichwannock. 
Not far below the outlet of East Pond are Wilton and Horn's 
ponds. The Salmon Falls river rises in East Pond, and flows 
along the whole eastern boundary of the town of Milton divid- 
ing New Hampshire from Maine. 

Lovewell's Pond, on the south-east side of the township, 
received its name from Capt. John Lovewell, the famous Indian 
fighter, and is about seven hundred rods long and two hundred 
and seventy-five rods wide. 

One branch of the stream that flows through Union Village 



160 WAKEFIELD 

rises in this pond; the other branch takes its rise from Cook's 
Pond in Brookfield. Province Pond, a pretty sheet of water 
in the north-easterly part of the town, and Pine River Pond not 
far away, are the other important bodies of water in Wake- 
field. The latter is the source of Pine river which flows through 
Ossipee and Effingham into Ossipee Lake. 

The principal villages in the town of Wakefield are Union, 
Sanbornville, Wakefield, East Wakefield, and North Wakefield, 
all situated on the North Conway branch of the Boston & Maine 
Railroad. Population in 1790, 646; in 1900, 1,645. 



EARLY PROPRIETARY AND SETTLEMENT. 

The present town of Wakefield, formerly that section of the 
Masonian Patent, kno^vn as "East Towti" or "Eastermost 
Township," said to have been a part of a to^vn chartered in 
1737 as "Kings- Wood" was, April 27, 1749, granted by a vote 
of the Masonian Proprietors, to John Ham, Gershom Downes, 
John Horn, and seventy-six others, all described as residents 
of Dover and Somersworth, except Noah Emery of Kittery, 
Maine. Soon afterward a survey was made, and April 11, 1750, 
at an inn in Portsmouth, the lot for the location of shares was 
cast, and the holdings in East Town (in first and second divis- 
ions) were divided among the several proprietors, of whom, very 
few, if any, settled here. 

The first tree felled within the township was in 1766. The 



HISTORICAL 161 

first family to remain here any length of time passed the winter 
of 1767 in this place. The first settlers came, probably, from 
Exeter, and were soon followed by colonists from Dover, Roches- 
ter, Portsmouth, and other towns in that section of New Hamp- 
shire. They were a sturdy lot, most of them young men, eager 
to acquire broad acres and wealth in the wilderness. In 1769, 
there were eleven families here; thirty in 1770. 

Lieut. Jonathan Oilman, the first settler, married Mehitable 
Kimball in 1746, and in 1767, settled on the old main road from 
Wakefield to Milton. Capt. Jeremiah Oilman came with his 
family from Exeter, probably at about the same time, and built 
a house opposite the ''Old Maid's Tavern," where he lived until 
May 1, 1791, the day of his death. 

John Horn, a native of Dover, was the third settler, taking 
up land here not long after the Oilmans came. His lot was 
probably 48. He was the first town clerk of Wakefield, and was 
one of the most prominent men in the early days of the town. 
He died in 1829, at the advanced age of almost ninety-two 
years. 

Capt. David Copp was another leading man in the early 
days. He was a native of Rochester, where he was born Dec. 
11, 1738. In July, 1779, he bought of Samuel Austin, lot 37; 
but owned also lot 15, on Sanborn Hill, where he built his resi- 
dence. He had been an officer in the Revolution, in which he 
rendered distinguished service. He was the first moderator of 
the town meeting in this town, and held many other offices dur- 
ing his life. He died in the year 1817. 

Deacon Simeon Dearborn (1727-87) came from Oreenland, 
before 1770, and after living for several years in a log hut, 



162 WAKEFIELD 

erected the first two-story house in town. He owned lot 42 
next to the "minister's lot," 44. He, too, was a prominent 
man, in the early settlement, one of great intelligence and worth. 
His first wife was Anne Gookins; his second, Martha Haven, 
one of the Portsmouth family of that name. 

John Haven, the deacon's brother-in-law, lived here a few 
years, being an extensive dealer in lands, and a man of prom- 
inence. He sold his house and the lot on which it was located, 
to Joseph Leavitt in 1789. "Leavitt's Tavern," was the name 
given to it later, it having been made, probably, into an inn. 

Josiah Page bought "10 acres in S. W. of 42," of Simeon 
Dearborn in September, 1773. 

John Kimball (1741-1807) purchased in 1768, lot 40, near 
the lands of Jonathan Oilman. His younger brother, Noah 
Kimball, married Mehitable, daughter of Jeremiah Oilman, and 
settled here in 1770. He was one of the early town officials, 
and a man of some prominence. He died at the age of 66. 

Lieutenant, later Colonel Jonathan Palmer, a veteran of the 
French and Indian war, was a native of Rochester, where his 
father was a prominent man in church affairs, and his mother 
the "town physician." He was collector for the proprietors, 
1770-74, and later was a leading Federalist in the town and 
State. He lived to a good old age. 

Lieut. Andrew Oilman was the son of Capt. Jeremiah Oil- 
man. Clement Steele, from Brentwood, was an early settler, 
also, locating probably near the Kimballs. 

Benjamin Kimball, tradition has it, came from Dover Point 
about 1768, began a clearing, went back to Dover, and returned 
in the fall to build a house, into which he moved, probably, 



HISTORICAL 163 

the next spring. His brother, Thomas, lived nearby. 

Rev. Avery Hall, a native of Meriden, Conn., and a graduate 
of Yale, came here in 1777 after having been pastor of the 
Rochester church for a period of nine years. He held several 
important town offices, was a large land holder, a leader in the 
organization of the church in this town, and for many years 
was one of the ablest and most prominent men in this section. 

Samuel Sherborn lived opposite the "minister's lot;" Wm. 
Moore, the first constable of the town, over the hill beyond 
Simeon Dearborn. 

The first settler on the site of the present village of Union, 
was either Samuel Haines or Joseph, his son, who came about 
1775. 

The Haines family resided in the dwelling opposite the 
ancient Pike's Hotel. The Haineses came, probably, from 
Greenland. They were mill owners and leading manufacturers 
more than a century ago. These two men, Samuel and Joseph, 
lie buried directly opposite the railroad depot in Union Village. 

Robert Hardy, a mill man also, was an early settler, coming 
here from Exeter, in December, 1771. On lots 5 and 6, above 
Hardy's, Samuel Allen, Samuel Allen, Jr., and Abner Allen 
nearby were early residents. They carried on blacksmithing 
and operated a saw mill near the Allen bridge. 

Nathaniel Balch bought lot 64 in 1776, of John Horn. He 
was a man of fifty-eight years of age, one of the oldest men 
among the settlers. He was a staunch patriot, a man of wisdom 
and high moral character, and attained a high place among his 
fellow citizens. 

Beyond his residence, to the south, on the Garvin place, 



164 WAKEFIELD 

Eliphalet Quimby of Exeter settled. His daughter Dorothy- 
was probably the first white child born in "Wakefield, and as 
the date of her birth is recorded as June 30, 1768, ]\Ir. Quimby 
was, evidentlj'', one of the earliest pioneers in this section. 

Daniel Hall, with his wife. Patience (Taylor) Hall, of San- 
bornton, settled to the north of Nathaniel Balch. Their only 
child, Hannah, married John Sanborn. 

Samuel Hall of Dover, John Scribner, and Reuben Lang 
come next, and the families, as can be seen from the records, 
were closely connected by inter-marriage. Near the "Lang" 
or "Lock" schoolhouse, close by, Jacob and Mehitable Lock 
made a home for themselves. 

The Weekses, originallj^ from Greenland, were early set- 
tlers, and have many descendants in this part of the county. 

Mayhew Clark, of North Hampton, purchased of Capt. 
Copp in May, 1772, lot 15, "in from the road over Tuttle's 
Hill." There he made a home, to which later, his brother, 
Jacob, came with his young bride to remain until he located 
permanently a mile away "near the sweep in the North Wake- 
field road that brings us in sight of Mt. Washington." 

Nathan Mordough, of Greenland, bought lot 11 in 1772, 
and settled near the Clarks and Weekses. He owned lot 44 
also. He sold one-half of 11 to Judith Lang. 

Joseph Maleham, having bought, Dec. 13, 1793, most of 
lot 89, of Meyhew Clark, sold the "Wormwood place" to Daniel 
Horn. He built a house on lot 90, and brought to his new 
home Frederica Lang, his second wife. 

John Huggins, from whom Huggins brook derives its name, 
lived near that stream as early as 1790. Benj. Safford's place 



HISTORICAL 165 

adjoined that of Nathan Mordough ; on the Richards lot beyond 
was Moses Gage; and on the Lucas lot was Joseph Pike, who 
had a brother Robert on the Brookfield side. 

Near Wakefield Corner, in the vicinity of lot 90 and the 
schoolhouse, John Wingate "broke the first ground," and not 
far away on lot 54, Eliphalet Philbrook built the first house 
erected in that vicinity. John Wingate was one of the select- 
men during the year 1780. His brother, Joshua, who "believed 
in witches," settled in that neighborhood, also. The Sawyers 
came into that section, too, to find homes. 

Wakefield Corner continued to grow in number of inhabit- 
ants and in prosperity, and with its taverns, stores, and numer- 
ous dwellings, became, about the year 1800 and later, a centre 
of trade and industry. 

Richard Dow from Kensington, whose descendants have 
lived, for many years, on the estate near the waters of beautiful 
Lake Newichwannock, came about the year 1781. 

Isaac Fellows, also from Kensington, had a house nearby. 
His daughter married Levi Neal, who lived on Tuttle's Hill. 
Not far away was the residence of Nathan Dearborn. 

Jacob Welch, Jonathan Binley and Ebenezer and John Hill 
lived near East Wakefield station. At the Pine River settle- 
ment (North Wakefield) were Jacob Clark, Simon Blake, Sil- 
vanus Wentworth, Lieut. James Young, Nathaniel Cook, and 
others. 

The Wentworths and Waldrons settled "over the river." 

Thomas Cloutman, who came to "Horn's Mills" from the 
Piper house in 1779, was a settler in Wakefield as early as 1780, 
coming to this place from Rochester. 



166 WAKEFIELD 

Benjamin and David Horn were settlers in that locality 
at the time. At the head of Love well's Pond, was the home of 
the Wiggins, Simeon, Isaiah, perhaps, also, Jacob Wiggin, men 
prominent here many years ago. 

James Hutchins, too, was one of Wakefield's pioneers, as 
were John Garlin, Samuel Chapman, who sold to David Spin- 
ney, Christopher Skinner and William Blaisdell. 

With this account of the early settlement and the men to 
whom the people of Wakefield owe so much, the ''early settle- 
ment" may be closed. It was not a difficult task, for we have 
but followed in the foot-steps of the Rev. Albert H, Thompson, 
who compiled the account from which this (with changes) has 
been "boiled down." 

Wakefield's settlers were of the best blood of the colonists 
of New Hampshire, and there were few weaklings among them. 
Theirs was a difficult and a dangerous task, the colonization of 
a region in the forests. They were soldiers, many of them, 
brave men of determination and perseverance, and of industry 
and achievement, who have handed down to their descendants 
the legacy of a work faithfully and ably performed, and of a 
mission fulfilled to the best of their ability. 



INCORPORATION. 



Wakefield was incorporated Aug. 30, 1774, by its present 
name, during the governorship of John Wentworth; prior to 
that time it had been called East Town, under a grant from the 
Masonian Proprietors. By act of the legislature approved June 



HISTORICAL 167 

22, 1820, a gore of land, containing all that belonged to Wake-

faithfully and well until May 17, 1835. Rev. Samuel Nichols, a 
graduate of the Bangor Theological Seminary, was ordained as 
colleague pastor, Sept. 17, 1828 and served until March 7, 1833, 
when he was dismissed by council. Rev. Nathaniel Barker, a 
Dartmouth and Andover graduate, came shortly after Mr. Piper's 
death, and remained here very many years. He died Oct. 13, 
1853. His successors were: Rev. Marion Leffingwell, 1856-60; 
Jos. B. Tufts, a graduate of Harvard in 1849, 1861-64; Daniel

the pastorate of the Rev. Mr. White. The present pastor is the 
Rev. 0. G. Baker. 

Congregational Church — Union. 

The Congregational Church at Union Village was organized 
during the pastorate of the Rev. Joseph Fawsett, Sept. 5, 1880- 
Sept., 1882. Prior to the ministry of the Rev. Mr. Fawsett, 
Rev. Geo. 0. Jenness had preached during the period April 
22, 1877-May 11, 1879, and Rev. C. F. Goldsmith from May 
18, 1879 to May 16, 1880. 

Following Mr. Fawsett, Jan. 7, 1883, Rev. G. S. Butler 



174 WAKEFIELD 

came to remain until May 4, 1888, since which time the follow- 
ing clergymen have been pastors of the church and brought it 
through nearly twenty years of prosperity and of great moral 
and spiritual influence upon this community : Rev. Hillis Jor- 
dan, May 11, 1888-Aug., 1888; Rev. Wm. France, Nov. 4, 1888- 
Oct. 31, 1891; Rev. L. C. Graves, Nov. 1, 1891-Nov. 1, 1894; 
Rev. Rob't L. SheaflF, Mar. 1, 1895-Mar. 1, 1897; Rev. B. W.

Sept. 28, 1900-Sept. 28, 1902; and Rev. E. P. Eastman, who came 
Dec. 1, 1902, and still continues as pastor of the church. 

The members of the church at the present time number fifty- 
two, of whom thirty-two are residents at Union village. Mr. 
Chas. W. Page and Mr. Chas. S. Boody are the deacons of the 
church, and Mrs. Helen M. Hanson is clerk. 

Free Baptist Churches. 

The First Free Baptist Church in Wakefield was probably 
at North Wakefield. The society after some time became extinct. 

The Second Free Baptist Church was organized in 1831, 
and was a centre of influence in South Wakefield for many years. 
The church was supplied by different preachers until 1835, 
when the meetinghouse was finished and dedicated. Joseph 
Spinney, one of the members, was the first pastor ordained. 
For many years he acted as pastor of the church, but in 1854 
he became a zealous advocate of Adventism, and April 9, of 
that year, withdrew from the church. Twenty-two members, 
and later twelve others withdrew also. After that the following 
ministers were pastors of the church : Elders Cummins Parris, 
John Chick, and H. P. Mansur, who was ordained Oct. 30, 1862, 



HISTORICAL 175 

and served the society for several years. He was the last pastor 
of the church. Rev. Mr. Churchill of Milton Mills supplies the 
church at present. 

The Third Free Baptist Church, in the vicinity of East 
Wakefield, has become extinct. Elder John Brooks preached 
many years. Meetings were held in the schoolhouse. 

The Fourth Free Baptist Church was organized at Union 
Village, July 22, 1868, with nineteen members. Rev. Joshua 
A. Stetson was pastor for a year, and Rev. Samuel P. Fernald 
preached in 1859 and 1860. 

Methodist Episcopal Churches. 

There was a Methodist society in Wakefield as early as 
1828, and circuit preachers visited the people here, among them 
being Revs. Roswell Putnam and Herschel Foster. The class 
was accustomed to meet at the house of Francis Chapman. A 
church at Union Village was for many years in active operation, 
Milton circuit, October, 1831, A. H. Houghton, preacher in 
charge, J. Worster, assistant circuit preacher, held quarterly 
meetings at Milton, Union Village, Brookfield and Wakefield. 
1833, July, circuit divided into Milton and Wakefield circuits; 
quarterly meeting at new meetinghouse ; John Adams and Moses 
Chase, preachers. 1834, last quarterly conference at the old 
meetinghouse in centre of the town. 1839, Joseph Smith, 
preacher ; Elisha Mills, local preacher and class leader at Union ; 
1842, Jan. 8, Caleb Dustin, preacher; 1844, John French; 1846, 
I. C. Emerson; 1853-54, L. H. Gordon; 1857, Daniel W. Barber, 
preacher, James Thurston, presiding elder. The last minister 
appointed was Rev. Jos. P. Frye (Milton Mills and Union), in 



176 WAKEFIELD 

1882. 

At North Wakefield, years ago, there was an organized 
Methodist Episcopal Church, but about the year 1880, a new 
church was organized and services held in the new Wesley 
Chapel 

Rev. H. T. Barnard, a Free Baptist clergjnnan, preached 
for a time at Leighton's Corner and at North Wakefield. Rev. 
W. Burrell preached also, and was among the foremost in secur- 
ing the new place of worship. 

North Wakefield was then in the Tuftonborough circuit, 
embracing Tuftonborough, East Wolfborough, and North Wake- 
field. The old meetinghouse had a long line of ministers, and 
was a "Union" Church as it was supplied by preachers of both 
the Methodist and Baptist profession, among them Elders Tap- 
lin and Hayes, IMethodists, and Elders Walker and Olin Page, 
Baptists. Rev. Henry E. Allen preached after 1880, to people 
at Brookfield, Hackett schoolhouse, and at North Wakefield. 
Rev. Frank Chamberlain, a local preacher, supplied for a sea- 
son. Revs. Frank Hooper, Dana Cotton Fogg have preached 
here. Rev. Mr. Yost is the present pastor. 

A church was organized at Sanbornville in January, 1887, 
with seven members, and a new circuit was formed embracing 
Wolfboro Junction (Sanbornville), Brookfield, East Wolfe- 
borough, and North Wakefield, and April, 1887, Rev. Geo. A. 
Luce was appointed minister in charge. He served two years 
and was followed in 1889 by Rev. J. M. Bean. The church 
building had been dedicated in November, 1887. In 1889 there 
were forty communicants. 

The following clergymen have succeeded the Rev. Mr. Bean 



HISTORICAL 177 

as pastor of the church : Revs. A. G. Smith, J. T. Hooper, Crook, 
0. W. Bryant, Lowell, Geo. R. Locke, R. H. Hughes, J. G. A. 
Martin and W. J. Wilkins, the present pastor who came to this 
church in April, 1907. 

Advent Church. 

Meetings were held by the followers of Wm. Miller in 1842, 
and later, and April 5, 1852, Elder Joseph Spinney, and twenty- 
two members, followed later by twelve others, withdrew from 
the Free Baptist Church and became a separate society. The 
first minister. Elder Spinney, continued as pastor of the church 
at South Wakefield, which had been erected by the Free Bap- 
tists and Adventists, for very many years until his death. 

Rev. Joseph Libby and other clergymen have supplied. The 
present Adventist supply is Rev. E. A. Goodwin. 

A society existed at Woodman's IMills, also, and had regular 
preaching for several years, by Elders T. L. Churchill, Chas. 
Coleman, both of Brookfield, and other ministers. Meetings 
for prayer and conference were held also, with Brother Alonzo 
Went worth. 

The church was organized about the year 1878, under the 
labors of Rev. R. F. Emerson of East Rochester. For a number 
of years the society worshiped in the schoolhouse at Woodman. 
About fifteen years ago a church was erected. Revs. R. F. 
Emerson, D. W. Stevens of Effingham, T. J. Coolbroth and 
many other clergymen have preached at the church. 

Rev.F. J. Hadley came three years ago and is the present 
pastor of the church. The society has grown in numbers and 
prosperity constantly since the organization of the church and 



178 WAKEFIELD 

has a neat, commodious little chapel at the present time. 
St. Anthony's Catholic Church. 

This church was built at Sanbornville about ten years ago. 
It is a mission station in the "Wolfeboro, Wakefield, Milton cir- 
cuit, and is supplied by priests from Gonic, who say mass 
occasionally also at Union Village in this town. 

The Rev. Fr. Laroque began the construction of the church, 
and it was finished by the Rev. Fr. Lesard. Father Joseph 
Melancou, too, has supplied the church, which is now under 
the care of the Rev. Fr. Godin. About thirty-six families attend 
divine worship at the chapel, where mass is said every Sunday 
during the summer, and on Friday morning every fortnight in 
the winter. 

Church of St. John the Baptist — Episcopal. 

The corner stone of the Episcopal Church at SanbornviUe 
was laid on Saint John the Baptist's day, and the church of 
Saint John the Baptist was consecrated by the Rt. Rev. Wm. 
W. Niles, D.D., Bishop of New Hampshire, Sept. 14, 1877. The 
first rector was Rev. W. B. T. Smith. Rev. Wm. L. Himes was 
pastor during the six years between the winter of 1881 and

INDUSTRIAL ACCOUNT. 

The earliest industries in the town of Wakefield were 
probably the mills of Messrs. Copp, Haines, Allen, and Hall, 
at which lumber was sawed, and grain ground for the benefit 
of the settlers. At Union, more than a hundred years ago, 
there was a ''fulling mill," and very early a saw mill built 
by the settlers and operated by them on shares. On the site 
of the old saw mill, Luther G. Gate and others later did an 
extensive lumber business. The property was purchased by the 
Portsmouth, Great Falls and Conway Railroad Company and 
operated for the manufacture of car stock. The next industry 
in the old mill, was the chair manufactory of Reuben Sanborn, 
who continued his business there a few years, before building 
a factory near the station, where he carried on the work exten- 
sively until it was destroyed by fire. The old mill came into 
the possession of J. F. and G. E. Hart, who manufactured lum- 
ber and later excelsior, which they continued for years. J. F. 
Hart, after selling his share of the property to his brother, 
went to Tacoma, Wash. Later J. F. Farnliam purchased a half 
interest, then the entire plant, and has since continued the 
manufacture of excelsior. About a dozen or fifteen hands are 
employed by Mr. Farnham, and the annual output of the mill 
is about 2,500 ton. 

The factory at Union occupied by the W. M. Lord Co., 
manufacturers of excelsior, was built about twenty-five or thirty 
years ago, by T. C. Pike, who erected it for the manufacture 
of woolen goods. Mr. S. L. Hutchins purchased the mill and 
after manufacturing excelsior there for some years, disposed of 



180 WAKEFIELD 

the property to the W. M. Lord Co., which began operations 
January, 1902. About twelve or fifteen hands are employed at 
this mill, and the output for the present year will amount to 
about 2,500 tons. 

The present site of the brass foundry at Union has been 
occupied by several industries, first as a grist mill, then an excel- 
sior factory, where Chas. E. Varney and Frank B. Drew carried 
on operations. 

It was first occupied as a brass foundry by the Union Brass 
Co. The property later became the property of Mr. Edw. F. 
Hamlin, one of the principal share holders, who has since carried 
on the industry under the name of the E. F. Hamlin Brass Co. 

The woolen mill of Arthur L. Taft at Union was built by 
John Meikle, about thirty years ago. For twelve or fifteen years, 
Mr. Meikle manufactured felt and carried on block printing 
there, until the plant came into the possession of the Star 
Woolen Co., which remained only a few years. Not long after- 
ward, the present owner, Mr. Taft, acquired the property, which 
he still operates for the manufacture of woolen goods, employing 
a large number of hands. 

The monumental works at Union were first used for that 
industry by Herbert F. Stevens, who carried on an extensive 
business for many years before selling to Chas. W. Law from 
whom, a few years later, ]\I. L. Johnson, formerly sheriff of 
Carroll County, bought it. He carries on a large business, 
close by the railroad station, where several hands are employed 
in the turning out of excellent granite and marble work. Mr. 
Johnson has branch works at Farmington. 

Until about the year 1870, Union was the terminal of the 



HISTORICAL 181 

railroad, and a centre for the stage lines through the surround- 
ing country. The railroad shops were located there, and gave 
the village an important industry. 

In 1817, there were in the town of Wakefield a cotton fac- 
tory, a carding industry, three grain mills, three saw mills, 
three fulling mills. In 1859, there were five saw mills, five grist 
mills, and ten shingle, clapboard and planing mills, and a large 
amount of lumber was manufactured. 

In 1868, there were seven mills in town, that of the Pine 
River Lumber Company near the Ossipee line ; Luther G. Cate 's 
at Union; a large one near Wakefield Corner, run by John W. 
Sanborn, and others. 

Six shingle mills were in operation, and shoe and salt boxes, 
flannel boards, etc., were made. Tinware was extensively man- 
ufactured, and the shoe industry had grown to large propor- 
tions. In 1872, Wakefield ranked fourth in point of wealth, 
and third in mechanical business, among the towns in the 
county. 

Sanbornville owes its growth and prosperity principally to 
the railroad. It is an important junction of the Wolfeborough 
and North Conway branches of the Boston & Maine, and is 
a railroad centre, with offices, car works, and so forth, the 
industry affording employment for many of the people of the 
village. 

Other manufacturing industries in town at this time are 
the saw mills of James Horn at Horn's Mills and L. P. Wiggin 
in that vicinity, the mill at Sanbornville, of which Mrs. Lillian 
Rogers is proprietor, the G. L. Plummer mill below Union Vil- 
lage, and the mill formerly owned by D. W. Libby, now the 
property of Geo. Chick, at Woodman's Mills. 



182 WAKEFIELD 

MILITARY HISTORY. 

Revolutionary War. 

Capt. David Copp was the first major in Col. Joseph Bad- 
ger's regiment in August, 1775; in November of the same year 
he commanded a company for the defence of the harbor and 
fortresses near Portsmouth; in November, 1780, he was lieu- 
tenant-colonel of militia. He was in command of a company 
at Bunker Hill. 

Lieut. Andrew Oilman served under Capt. Copp, Capt. 
Jeremiah Gilman "and 15 soldiers under him" served in the 
Bennington Expedition in 1777, Capt. Gilman being the Wake- 
field hero of that year. James Clark and Jona. Towle went 
to Rhode Island; Joseph Green served in the 3d N. H. Reg't; 
Dearborn Loverin and Joseph Dearborn were of Capt. Smith's 
Company of the Reynold Reg't; Jonathan Quimby and Paul 
Sanbourn enlisted in Capt. James Carr's Company; Jonathan 
Hazeltine served in Capt. Ellis' Company of Col. Scammell's 
Reg't; Joshua Edgerly enlisted in Capt. Carr's Company Feb. 
17, 1777, and probably served later in Capt. Wentworth's Com- 
pany; Joseph Edgerly was in Nathan Hale's Second Battalion; 
Timothy Ricker was in the 2d N. H. Reg't in 1780; Andrew 
Quimby enlisted in March, 1781, served in the 1st N. H. Reg't, 
was discharged in December of the same year, and died in the 
service of his country in 1782; Peter Barter served in Capt. 
Bell's Company in Col. Hale's Reg't, was taken prisoner on the 
retreat from Ticonderoga, and was wounded in the thigh at 
Monmouth, in consequence of which he was rendered unfit for 



HISTORICAL 183 

duty and sent home. He was ordered to the fort and served 
under Col. Dame and Capt. Deering. 

The town voted $80 to five men who enlisted in 1776, for 
the expedition into Canada. These men were Josiah Miggin, 
Benj. Horn, Samuel Scribner, Henry Went worth, and Jesse 
Wiggin. 

There were many splendid soldiers among them, fearless 
patriots, enured to hardship and privation, loving liberty, and 
disdaining suffering and death. Their names may be found on 
the State rolls of honor. 

War op 1812. 

Major J. G. Hall and Lieut, or Capt. Jas. Hardy, stationed 
at Fort Constitution; Dr. Richard Russell, surgeon on privateer 
Polly, captured and confined in Dartmoor prison; Mayhew 
Clark, sent to Portsmouth. These men were not all natives of 
Wakefield, several of them not coming here until the close of 
the war. 

Lieut. Joseph Parker Smith was probably the only Wake- 
field man who served in the Mexican War. He was a graduate 
of West Point, and a brave soldier. He fell at Chapultepec. 

Wakefield in the Civil War. 

The patriotism and loyalty to the Union, displayed by the 
citizens of the towns and cities throughout the New England 
States during the great War of the Rebellion, found an answer- 
ing chord in the hearts of the men of Wakefield, and they 
answered the call of duty with a willing and ready response. 
Thousands of dollars in bounties, aids, and contributions, and 



184 WAKEFIELD 

a large quota of men were freely given to our country to aid 
her in the peril and conflict of the four long years. 

Wakefield's record of service in the Revolution was nobly 
maintained in the Civil War, for the men who fought and died 
to crush out slavery and to maintain the unity of the Republic 
were the descendants of the men who gave their all to win the 
independence of the new born Nation; the same blood flowed 
in their veins ; they were actuated by similar motives ; influenced 
by the same high ideals. In field, in camp, in hospital, they 
showed their worth as men, and their bravery and heroism never 
has, and never can be questioned. Wakefield's military record 
for a period going back even to the birth of the Nation has 
never been stained, and the names and deeds of the soldiers of 
the Rebellion, like those of the men of the Revolution reflect 
the greatest honor upon their native town. 



EDUCATIONAL ACCOUNT. 

In 1776, the town voted "£8 for schooling, one-half to be 
laid out in the summer, the other half in winter." In 1777, 
Capt. David Copp, Daniel Hall, Wm. Moore, and John Kimball 
were chosen the first school committee, and £11 were voted for 
schooling, "One-half to be laid out below the pond, the other 
half above." In 1778, it was voted that the school be kept near 
John Kimball's below the pond. £30 were appropriated that 
year; in 1779, £60; in 1782, money sufficient to support a "man 
school" for six months; in 1785, the interest of the school lot, 



HISTORICAL 185 

and £24; in 1798, $200 including interest; in 1804-07, $200. 

Early teachers were: Elizabeth Piper, in the Hall district 
in 1807; Richard F. Dow, Sally Copp, and Samuel Fellows in 
1808. Prior to this time, however, Masters Nicolson, Robinson, 
John Bosdel, David Glody, Evans; in 1795, John Dame, and 
Master Newlson. These were all teachers in town before the 
beginning of last century. 

The first schools were held, probably, in private houses, but 
in the fall of 1796 a schoolhouse was built, to be followed by 
several others later as new ones become necessary. 

Academies. 

In 1815, Mr. Josiah Dow, a leading merchant of Boston, 
built and established on his father's farm in this town, Dow 
Academy, which was dedicated Nov. 6, 1815. The institution 
flourished for several years, having an extensive patronage from 
students both in and out of the State, the roll of August, 1819, 
showing a student body of sixty-three. The building, after 
the school was closed several years after its foundation was 
removed to Sanbornville in 1886, to continue its usefulness as 
a hall for the societies of that village. 

Through the generosity of the founder's grandson, the 
Wakefield Academy incorporated in 1827, was, nearly sixty 
years after it had been closed, revived by the gift of one hun- 
dred dollars annually, and enjoyed a new period of prosperity 
for some time. 



186 WAKEFIELD

The petition of the subscriber in behalf of the proprietors 
of Wakefield and Brookfield Union Library being empowered 
by a vote of the proprietors for the purpose aforesaid, humbly 
prays that Timothy Johnson, Avery Hall, Jonathan Palmer, 
David Copp, William Chamberlain may be incorporated into a

resentatives, June 10, 1797, and the Senate concurred. 



PROFESSIONAL MEN.

Dr. Howe of Rochester was perhaps the first regular phy- 
sician to visit the people of this town. Another early physician 
was Dr. John Manning who was probably here from 1790 to 
1800. 

Dr. Thomas Lindsay, too, must have been here very early, 
for he married a Wakefield woman, Polly Nudd, in 1787. He 
moved to Lincoln, Maine, in 1832. He had a long and suc- 
cessful practice.

E. Swasey, and went to Rushville, N. Y., returning later to 
Wakefield, where he continued in practice until October, 1854. 
He died the following year. 

Dr. S. W. Roberts, a native of Alton, and a Dartmouth

Dr. Chas. F. Roberts, born in Lebanon, Maine, Aug. 5, 
1860, graduated at Columbia, and came to Sanbornville from 
New York in January, 1885, and practised in that village a

Village. 

Dr. Chas. C. Rogers practised at the same place for a few 
years. He is now located in Farmington. 

Dr. John E. Stevens, a native of Wakefield, came here dur- 
ing the latter part of Dr. Rogers' stay, and still enjoys a suc-

EARLY SETTLEMENT 

The township of Middleton was granted by the Mason- 
ian proprietors March 21, 1770, and incorporated by the 
Legislature March 4, 1778. 

In 1785, the inhabitants of the north part of Middleton 
and those of a portion of Wolfeborough, attempted to get 
set off from their respective towns and be incorporated into 
a separate town. The scheme did not succeed, being 
strongly opposed by Wolfeborough and the south part of 
Middleton. 

In 1794, the matter was again brought before the Leg- 
islature and the town was divided by an act passed Dec. 30, 
of that year, the north part being incorporated into a town 
by the name of Brookfield. The town was settled by men 
from Rochester and Lee. 

The following are the names of some of the early settlers 
of this town. David Varney, Nathaniel Varney, John Drew, 
Silas Varney, Aaron Drew, Deze K. Varney, Jonah Keunis- 
ton, William Buzzell, Wm. Clark, Job Allard, James Bry- 
ants, Nathaniel Wentworth, Isaac Drew. 

Among the early settlers of the town of Brookfield was 



HISTORICAL 241 

Tabias Hanson a Quaker, he settled near the base of Moose 
Mountain, and looking around he discovered a cave into 
which he moved before commencing the erection of his future 
habitation, and continued to live there during the time it 
took him to dig and stone his cellar, a part of which was 
done with split stone, and to erect a house thereon, the main 
part of which was two stories high, the cellar contained a 
spring of water which never went dry. That section of 
Moose Mountain near where he settled is called Hanson 
Mountain and the cave Tabias' Cave. The house no longer 
stands and the land through which a stream of water runs 
has been purchased by some wealthy men of Boston and 
other places and a dam constructed across it sufficiently 
large to flow a number of acres of land and a trout pond 
established. The place is called Mountain Lake Camp, and 
with what the proprietors have done added to what Nature 
has done, makes a very attractive place of it,

INCORPORATON. 

In the following lines will be found various papers of in-

These papers are among those which tell the story of the 
legal shaping of the career of the two towns. 



INCORPORATION OF MIDDLETON. 

STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE 

In the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred 
and seventy-eight — 

An act to incorporate a place called Middleton within 
the County of Strafford— 

Whereas, a patition hath been presented to the General 
Court in behalf of the Inhabitants of said Middleton, Pray- 
ing that the same place may be invested with Town Privi- 
leges by incorporation of which Petition and the order of 
Court thereon due Notice hath been given, and no objection 
been made, and the Praj^er ol said Petition appearing Rea-

MILITARY MATTERS. 

These two towns have a joint and separate military 
record of which they may be justly proud. There are few 
towns which can boast a more loyal response to the calls for 
arms than these. They of course were most active in the 
war of the rebellion and we are most concerned with the 
names of the men who were called to serve in that terrible 
struggle. 

The list of men who served there as we have it given to 
us by residents of the two towns, may be incomplete, but we

have endeavored to get it as complete as the knowledge of 
these citisens would permit.

FACTS OF INTEREST 

The town of Middleton is in fortunate possession of a 
library of appropriate and useful books. This library at the 
opening of the year 1908, numbered 1,362 volumes and has 
been a source of much pleasure and profit to the citizens of 
the town. The trustees oi the library are as follows: Jas. D. 
Moore, Mrs. M. H. Davisand F. A. Orne. Mrs. M. H. Davisis 
Librarian. The town votes an annual appropriation of $25 
for the purchase of new books. 

MIDDLETON TRAmiNG FIELD. 

In the early part of 1800, one of the most familiar spots 
in this region was the old training field, or "muster field" 
which was large enough to accommodate about 2,000 
people. It was equipped with all the utensils of war and 
included in the supply was one small brass cannon. The 
scenes presented here in the famous old muster days were 
inspiring to the hardy folks of this region, and the associa- 
tions that cling around the event are not entirely forgotten 
to this day. 

The cannon sometime before the Civil War was carried 
to Alton and from there was demanded by the national 



HISTORICAL 261 

government, but was hidden in a forest to prevent the 
government's securing its property. The attempt has been 
to date unsuccessful.

TOWN MEETINGS IN BROOKFIELD. 

When Brookfield was first set off from Middleton, the 
town was without any Town House in which to hold their 
town meetings and it was customary to call the same at 
the house of some inhabitant of the town. In the year 1815 
the meeting was called at the house of Daniel Wiggin, with 
the following result: After the meeting was organized and 
they had proceeded for a while the chamber in which the 
meeting was assembled broke down and the voters all fell 
with it. No lives lost nor any one badly hurt. The voters 
went out into the road and carried on the meeting. 

FREE BAPTIST CHURCH— MIDDLETON. 

Religious services were held at Middleton many years 
previous to the organization of 1827, at which time, by 
the request of a number of brethren and sisters living in the 
vicinity, wishing to associate themselves together as a 
church of Christ, Elders John H. Nutter, Simeon Swett, and 
Joseph Banfield, met with them March 3, 1827, at the home 
of Jonathan Howes in Milton, for the purpose of acknowl- 
edging them as such. 

The first settled minister was Rev. Nehemiah Ordway, 
(Orthodox), his successor was Rev. John Buzzell, a Freewill 
Baptist, who later established a society.

Enoch York, Bethuel Ellis, Joseph Brooks, Elijah Curtis, 
Anna Goodwin, Eliza Rines, Mahitable Clark, Martha Frost, 
Betsy Curtis, Purliuej Brooks, Betsy Ellis, Belinda Treph- 
ren, Abigail Watson, Mary Goodwin. 

The first clerk chosen was Enoch York, March 3, 1827. 
This church was later received into fellowship with the New 
Hampshire conference. 

The old meeting house which 104 years ago stood near 
the Enoch York larm was moved by Squire Wingate to 
what is now called Middleton Corner, upon a part of the six 
acre lot which was set apart for the support and main- 
tenance of the Gospel ministry. 

Latter ministers of Middleton were Revs. William Buz- 
zell. Elder Butler, Simeon Swett, J. H. Nutter, Joseph 
Boody, Joseph Banfield, John York, John Swett, Luther 
Penney, Geo. York, Joseph Brooks, William Blaisdell, John 
Flanders, Timothy Cole, Elder Furnell, Seth Sawyer being 
the last settled minister in Middleton. Since that religious 
services have been held regularly by different preachers. 

This Free Baptist church, the most historic building in 
the town, is occupied also by the Old Home Week Associa- 
tion, the place of meeting being on the second floor. This 
is a historic place and was erected more than a century ago, 
is in the center known as the Four Corners, and around it is 
the Town Common, several acres in area. The seating ca- 
pacity will not accommodate more than a quarter of the 
people, while the addresses and musical exercises took place 
in the church, the banquet was held in the Town Hall on

first floor. 

This Landscape Hall, painted in 1842 by John Avery of 
Farmiugton, is famous throughout the Granite State as 
the Landscape Church. The landscape was painted to rep- 
resent large shade trees on a plat of ground, which extends 
around the four walls. 

This is the only house of worship in town, and during 
112 years it has been used as a meeting house, and attended 
by the ancestors of the present generations. Because of 
that fact and the other associations it is held dear to the 
heart of every native, and all denominations meet here lor 
divine worship. 

Formerly there was a club that met here yearly in Sep- 
tember, spending several days in town, going over their old 
haunts and bringing it to a close with a dinner. 

The members of the present Association declare that it 
was through the annual gathering at Middleton that the 
Old Home Week idea was first agitated.
