Location — Grants — Proprietors — Incorporation 

The town of Turner lies on the west bank of the An- 
droscoggin river, in about 44 degrees 15 minutes north 
hititude. It is bounded, southerily, by the city of 
Auburn and the town of Minot, five and one-half miles 
westerly, by Hebron, Buckfield and Hartford, ten 
miles and one hundred and eights rods; northerly, by 
Livermore, three miles and tw© hundred and fifty 
rods; easterly by the Androscoggfn river. Leeds and 
Greene, are adjoining towns on the right bank of the 
river. It originally constituted a part of Cumberland 
county, was afterwards embrace*! in Oxford count}-, 
but in 1S42 it became a part of Androscoggin county, 
which was at that time created oui of several adjoining 
counties. The township was originally granted to the 
heirs and assigns of Captain Josej^ S3lvester and his 
company, for millitary services rendered in the inva- 
sion of Canada under Sir William Phipps, in 1690. 
Mr. Dean in his history of Scituate, gives this account 
of the Svlvester family: Richard Sylvester, the father 
of Captain Joseph, lived in Weymouth in 1633, where 
he acquired an unfortunate notoriety by espousing 
certain religious opinions too liberal for the age in 
which he li\'ed. 

Mr. Robert Lenthal, his miTtister at Weymouth, 
advanced the sentiment that all baptized persons 
should be admitted to the commuaion without further 



lO HISTORICAL 

trial. This was a heresy, to be noticed by the 
Government and he was ordered to retract in presence 
of the General Court, with which order he complied. 
But Richard Sylvester, who held the same sentiments, 
still adhered to his own opinion, and in consequence 
of so doint,s was hned and disfranchised by the Govern- 
ment. This put him upon removing from the colony, 
and he came to Scituate in 1642. Joseph, who was 
his third son, settled also in Scituate, and had a farm 
on Church Hill in 1664. 

Joseph Svlvester of Cumberland county, Elaine, 
married Lucy Wade in 17S8. He lived at a place 
called Front's Gore. Joseph commanded a company 
under the famous Colonel Church, in his eastern expe- 
dition against the Indians in 16S9. The next year he 
raised a company, sixteen of which belonged to Scitu- 
ate, and many of whom never returned, and joined in 
the enterprise undertaken by Sir William Phipps 
a<^'-ainst the French possessions of Fort Royal and 
C^iebec. In this campaign, Israel Chittcdcn was his 
lieutenant, and lohn Stetson, ensign. This enterprise 
proved disastrous and fatal to the brave Captain Syl- 
vester and many of his men. 

The historian, be tore quoted, says of them; Many 
noncupative wills were entered, and proved in the pro- 
bate Court, Flvmouth County, and among the number 
was that of Captain Sylvester himself. This will was 
proved bv the testimtmy ot three of his soldiers, Ben- 
jamin Stetson, John Ferry, and William Ferry, and 



_^ HISTORICAL 11 

reads thus: I give all my land at Hugh's Cross to my 
son Joseph; the three younger sons to be provided tor 
by their mother, out of my other property, wife Mary 
to be executrix. The Records show also that Timothy 
Rogers was appointed to administer on the estate of 
Nathaniel Parker, who joined the Canada expedition 
of 1690. 

The widow Mary was appointed administratrix 
on the estate of her husband, Ensign John Stetson. 
Eliab Turner was appointed administrator on the estate 
of his brother Lazarus Turner, who died in the same 
service. Moses Simons, in his will says: Being bound 
to Canada as a soldier, in 1690, in case he shall never 
return, orders his property to be equally divided be- 
tween his brothers; this brother John to be executor. 
He did not return, and his will was duly executed. 
Samuel Bryant fell in the same expedition, and an in- 
ventor}- of his property was taken by William Perry 
and Samuel Stetson. Samuel Dwelly died also in this 
expedition, and an inventorv of his property was taken 
by Jeremiah Hatch and Thotnas Hyland. tlis father 
was administrator. Robert Sprout was another that 
did not return. These tew names are rescued from 
oblivion. Mindful of this service, the General Court 
of Massachusetts granted a township of land to the 
heirs and assigns of Capt Sylvester and his company, 
situated, as supposed, in the province ot Maine; but on 
riming the line between Maine and New Hampshire, 
the township was found to be in the latter State. A 



12 HISTORICAL 

petition was then presented by the parties interested, 
to the General Court for another township, on which 
action was taken as follows ; — 

Province of Massachusetts Bay, 

In the House of Representatives, June 25, 1761^. 
On the petition of James Warren and Joseph 
Joslyn, Esqrs. and Mr. Charles Turner, Agents for the 
proprietors of a township granted to Capt. Joseph 
Sylvester and company who served "in the expedition 
against Canada in 1690, which township was known by 
the name of S}lvestcr-Canada, and that the whole of 
said township, on running the lines between this 
Province and New Hampshire, fell with the govern- 
ment of New Hampshire. Resohcd, that in lieu 
thereof there be granted to the petitioners and the 
legal representatives or assigns of the said Joseph 
Sylvester and Compan\-, a township of the contents of 
seven miles square in the unappropriated land belong- 
ing to this Pro\incL*. Provided that the Grantees 
within six }cars settle thirt}- families in said town, 
build a house tor public worship and settle a learned 
Protestant minister, and lay out one sixty-fourth part 
of said town for the use of the tirst settled minister 
and one sixty-fourth part for the ministrv, and one 
other sixty-fourth part for a Grammar School, and one 
sixty-fourth part for the use of Harvard College. 

Provided, also, the said township be laid out in 
such parts of the unappropriated lands belono-in<r

to this Province adjoininu^ to some former grants to the 
eastward of Saco river, and they return a plan thereof 
into the secretary's othce within twelve months from 
this day, for contirmation.

ernor.

ship granted them by the General Court, and returned a 
plan thereof, as required. The township, as located, 
was confirmed to them by the following act: 

An Act to incorporate the Plantation called Sylvester, 
into a town by the name of Turner. 

Whereas it appears to this Court that it would be 
productive of the public good and for the benefit of 
the inhabitants and proprietors of the said plantation, 
that the same should be incorporated into a town: 

Sect. I. Be it enacted by the Senate and House 
of Representatives in the General Court assembled, and 
by the authority of the same, that the plantation called 
Sylvester, and included within the boundaries described 
by this Act., together with the inhabitants thereof, be, 
and hereby are, incorporated into a town by the name 
of Turner. (Here tollow the boundaries contained in 
the original grant to the proprietors,) and the said 
town is hereby \ested with all the powers, rights, and 
immunities which towns within this commonwealth 
are entitled to, or by law do enjoy. 

Sect. 2. And be it further enacted by the au- 
thority atoresaid tliat Isaac I'arsons, I{s(|., of New 
Gloucester, be, and he hereby is empowered to issue

his warrant to some principal inhabitant of said town, 
requiring him to warn the inhabitants thereof to meet 
as he shall therein set torth, to choose all such officers 
as towns arc required by law to choose in the months 
of March or April annuall}'. 



Early Settlement 

The earl}- settlement of Turner is a story of the 
pioneer in the struggle with nature as is the case in other 
towns of the rugged Pine Tree State. The proprietors 
were troubled somewhat to secure settlers upon this 
tract of land, but finally succeeded in the year 1772 to 
induce Daniel Staples, Thomas Records, Joseph Lcavitt 
and Abncr Phillips to begin to fall trees with a view to 
settlement. With the forest thus br oken the en- 
couraging of settlers was much easier. 

We give herewith the names of the principal 
settlers, the dates-of settlement and the lots taken: 

The heads ot families and dates of coming were 
according to Dr. Howe: Mark Andrews, 1780; 
Samuel Blake, 1777, located on mill lot. Ichabod

Island State troops; Cornelius Jones, Massachusetts 
State troops and seaman; Andrew Bass, fell in the 
battle ot Stillwater, 1777; James Allen, musician in 
Massachusetts line; Jacob Gardiner, during the war; 
Nathaniel Marston, in the New Hampshire line. 

THE WAR OF l8l2 

In this war the following citizens of the town vol- 
unteered, and served on the Canada frontier one year 
or more. Capt. Stephen Turner, Isaac Allen, James 
Allen, James Allen Jr., Jacob Merrill, William Loni- 
bard, Thcodocius ^lerrill, Peter Lombard, John Bailey, 
Charles Staples, Josiah Keen, Israel Smith, Jacob 
Keen and Barnet Pumpilly. Captain Turner was killed 
at the battle of Bridge water, and Thcodocius ^Merrill 
died in tiie army. The coast engaged the attention ol 
the Maine to a greater degree than did any other phase 
of this contlict. The state militia was called into ser- 
\ice, and Turner was represented in that branch by 
two companies of infantry commanded by Captains 
Seth Staples and Aaron Soule, and also a compan\- ot 
artillerv commanded by Capt. Leonard Richmond. 
These troops were called to the defense of Portland. 

AROOSTOOK WAR 

Probably no contest of the international nature so 
thoroughly aroused the people of Turner and m tact 



20 HISTORICAL 

the whole state of Maine as did the ''Bloodless Aroos- 
took War"" of 1840. This promised at one time to be 
a very serious quarrel and the people ot' Maine were 
greatly exercised over the danger of having the war 
scene on their own territory. But the\" were tar more 
concerned over the proposed steal of territory of the 
northeastern portion ot the state by Great Britian 
through her New Brunswick subjects and so called 
upon the Washington authorities to demand justice ot 
Great Britian. Washington othcials were not ready to 
take hastv action and so the matter dragged along 
much to the dissatisfaction of Maine. The State 
thereupon took matters in its own hands and raised 
money and troops to detend the border. The matter 
was settled b}" the Webster-.Vshburton Treat}' in 1842.

Educational Account 



The town of Turner has ever been the firm friend 
of education, esteeming it one of the bulwarks of the 
liberties we cherish so fondly. From the very first 
effort was made tc promote its principles in this com- 
munity. In accordance with the time honored custom 



HISTORICAL 29 

of the General Court of Massachusetts, the proprietors 
of Sylvester Town (Turner) were required by the act 
which secured to them the township, to set apart the 
following lands for the different purposes enumerated; 
one sixty-fourth part of the township for the support 
ol a learned Protestant minister; one sixty-lourth part 
for the support of schools in town; one sixty-fourth 
part for the benefit of Harvard College. The problem 
of handling the ministerial lands was less complicated 
than was the one of handling the school lands. The 
settled minister tor a number of years cultivated the 
ministerial lands and thus secured a portion of his 
salary. But the school lands were tor many years un- 
productive of revenue. It was proposed to sell the 
lands and with the proceeds establish a permanent 
fund. The ministerial lands were also to be included 
in this sale and the proceeds of that sale to be applied 
for the support ot public worship. The petition was 
granted in the form ot an act ot the General Court, 
passed in the year 1803, entitled: An x\ct to authorize 
the raising of a iund for the support of the ministr\', 
and a Grammer school in the town of Turner in the 
Countv of Cumberland. 

This Act provided that a board ot trustees should 
be chosen to sell the lands and receive the proceeds, 
and also to have the same in charge tor the purposes 
above enumerated. Bv the provisions of the Act, 
.Ichabod Bonne\", Esq., William Bradtord, Benjamin 
Evans, John Turner, Esq., Daniel Cary, Luther Cary 



30 HISTORICAL 

and John Loring were constituted the Board of Trus- 
tees, with power to lill any and all vacancies, maintain- 
ing the committee ot" not more than seven members 
and not less than tive. 

At a meeting ot'the trustees holden at the house 
of Ichabod Bonney, Esq., on March 15, 1803, the 
board organized with Luther Gary, Esq., president; 
Benjamin Evans, clerk*; John Turner, treasurer. A 
committee was appointed to appraise the lands. 

The ministerial lands were sold to various parties 
for cash and notes, for the total sum of $3,850. The 
school lands were disposed ot in the same way for the 
sum of $2,550, 

The ministerial lands were made up of lots. No. 
224, No. 126, No. 203 and No. 51. The school lands 
were composed of lots number 99, 257, 168, and 4. 

It was provided that these funds should not be 
productive until the annual interest of the Ibrmer 
reached a total of $350, and the latter a sum equal to 
$250. For some time the work of the board of trus- 
tees was chicll\- looking after the notes and sale ot 
lands. It was also provided that when there was money 
in the treasurer's hands arising trom this tund it could 
be hired by any one in town on conditton that he fur- 
nish two acceptable sureties. There was, it is stated, 
rarely a time when there was no one in town willing 
"to hire money of the town'' as it was called. So well 
was the money of these two funds handled that in 1808 
the treasurer's report showed that there had been no 



HISTORICAL 31 

losses and the sum on hand in cash or securities to the 
amount of $4,978.99 tor the ministerial fund, and $3,- 
376.72 for the school fund. 

When the school fund became productive the 
trustees were confronted with the problem how to 
carry out the provision of the act calling tor grammar 
school. The sum was inadequate tor a strictly Gram- 
mar Grade, and it did not seem to be right to apply the 
revenue to the support of common schools. The town 
was desirous that the latter be done and it voted to 
secure the trustees from any loss which might occur 
tVom such action. For a term ot years this method 
was followed. 

After a time this method was changed so that the 
three largest schools in town were given the money, 
and required to t'urnish instruction in the higher 
branches. This plan was followed lor a time but tin- 
ally abandoned, and in 1828 it was voted that the tund 
be used to support a Grammar school for one }ear. 
Alden Blossom was chosen to carry the vote into etlect. 
This plan was tbllowed tor some time. Twelve weeks 
of school was maintained usualh' in ditlerent districts 
so that all sections might tare alike. Later instead ot 
a term of twelve weeks, the plan of maintaining two 
terms of six weeks each during the autumn, has been 
followed down to recent years. Thus the wise tore- 
sight of the tVamers ot the act granting the tosvn, has 
been productive of excellent results. 

For some \ears the state's provision for a High 
School was made use of — the State assuminir one-halt 



32 HISTORICAL 

the cost of the High Schools maintained up to the to- 
tal sum oi" $250. 

The year 1896 witnessed the most important edu- 
cational event in the history of this town, when Mr. 
James Madison Leavitt of Brooklyn, New York, a na- 
tive ot Turner, established here the Leavitt Institute. 
This finely equipped institution was the magnificent 
gift of Mr. Leavitt. It was opened to the instruction of 
the youth in the spring of 1897, with Lauren M. San- 
born, A. B., as principal. The institute is located at 
Turner Centre' amid the most healthful and beautiful 
surroundings, twelve miles distant from Auburn by 
stage and eight miles from Buckfield. 

The building so generously given by Mr. Leavitt 
is one of the finest in the east. Its con\'enience, equip- 
ment, and beauty have won universal comment. 

The Institute presents four courses ot stud\% viz.. 
College Preparatory, Latin-Scientific, English and 
Normal. It is well supplied with teaching talent and 
has justly come into a verv prominent place among the 
secondary schools of Maine. The list of Principals 
from the tirst, with the dates of their connection with 
the school are as iollows: 

i896-'97 — Lauren M, Sanborn, A. B. 

i897-'o2 — Leland A. Ross, A. B. 

i902-'o3 — Horatio P. Barker, A. B. 

1903 — Bertram E. Packard, A. B., the present ef- 
ficient principal. 

The other teachers in charge of the several depart- 
ments areas follows: Lelan P. Knapp, A. B., Sub- 



HISTORICAL 33 

"Master; Lola Merriman, Preceptress; Myrtie B, 
Childs, Music, Elocution and Drawing; and Ethel 
Jenks, Principal of the Training School. 

When Mr. James Madison Leavitt died in iSIarch, 
1903, he left a liberal sum as an endowment for this 
school. This magniticent Institution coupled with the 
strenuous etibrts of the town in previous years in be- 
half of education, has made tor the town ot Turner an 
excellent reputation in educational circles. All indi- 
cations point toward a continuation of her loyal and 
successful support of the principles ot education. 



Church Account 



The history of the progress ot church work in 
the town ot Turner is largel}- a history of the different 
ilenominations in town. We learn that the fn-st denom- 
ination to locate here was tlie Congregationlist. I'he 
society was tbunded by the Rev. Charles Turner, who 
came from Duxborough, Mass., having been disniissed 
from the church at that place. We however under- 
stand that this act ot dismissal was not one which car- 
ried great blame to the doors of Mr. Turner. The date 
of his coming to town was I77^>. On this \isit he 
preached in and also baptised two children ol a INIr. lias- 



^. HISTORICAL 

kell His next visit was in 1789 ^^^ ^^''^^ ^^^^^^ "'^"^ 
successful than on his previous trip takin,^ several in 
covenant relations, baptising several children and one 
adult The onlv re-ular services held in this town tor 
a cood manv' vcars were led by Deacon Daniel 
Merrill, who' c^me here from New Gloucester 
Durin- the five vears tollowing Mr. Turner's second 
visit t'he onlv preachers here were Revs. B. Brown 
ot Westbrook and Nash of Gray. In 1874 Rev. John 
Strickland a native of Iladley, Mass., and a graduate 
ot Yale, came to this place for regular labors; in Au- 
austofthis year a church of tifteen members was or- 
aanized. Mr Strickland was called as pastor ot the 
new church and was installed as such in September 
following.- Six vears later by the vote of the town he 
was dismissed. Me did not however comply with this 
action and continued in his work, though his salary 
was very much limited. He remained until his case 
was taken up bv an cclesiastical council and a vote ot 
dismissal carried. He then closed his labors for the 
time For several vears no services were conducted 
and the place became what a previous writer termed it 
a spiritual wilderness. In 1S02 complaint was made on 
account ot the n.-o-lect of the town to provide religious 
services Both Mr. Strickland and Mr. Turner were 
employed tor a time. Later Mr. Turner was called by 
the tcnvn, but here a controversy began, and man_N 
events of local dissension tollowed. Finally the church 
chan-ed in name Irom the Pre,sbeterian to the 



was

HISTORICAL 35 

Congregational denomination. Soon after the church is- 
sued a call to the Rev. Aniasa Smith as their pastor. 
This choice was ratified by the town and Mr. Smith 
was ordained by the church on Ma\' 23, 1804. How- 
ever there were some in town who did not tavor Mr. 
Smith and it was not long be tore a Universalist society 
was organized here. 

This was the parting of the ways and the two 
societies organized themseh-es into two separate 
churches. The Universalists had tittv-lour original 
members. However as we have seen in the educa- 
tional account the public lands set apart for the sup- 
port ot the church and schools did not become pro- 
ductive for some time alter this. The tax on the re- 
maining members of the Congregational Societv was 
heavy, on account ol the forming of a new societv, 
and the consequent loss of the support of" those who 
joined the new movement. 

In 1806 a meeting was held to consider the dis- 
missal of Mr. Smith, and alter much discussion it was 
found that the necessary number of votes to carr\- 
the dismissal had not been cast. But a few of the 
members conferred with the pastor and it was agreed 
his labors should cease sometime in the near future. 
lie was later installed as pastor of the North Yar- 
mouth Church. 

For four }ears following the dismissal of Mr. Smith 
there was no pastor. In 1810 Rev. Allen CireeleN' be- 
gan preaching here as a candidate for settlement. The 



36 HISTORICAL 

society voted to settle him and he was ordained on 
October 24, 18 10. Mr. Greclcv was continued here as 
pastor until 1844. His work it is needless to say was 
productive ofgood results. 

One of the most bitter contests in the history of the 
town was one over the problem who should receive 
the benetit of the ministerial fund which had become 
productive soon alter Mr. Greeley's settlement. This 
contest was lontj and severe. The followinsj is a brief 
statement of the main facts connected with it. 

The society over which ^Nlr. Greelev was pastor 
had been designated the one which should receive the 
benefit of the returns from the ministerial funds. In 
1811 the trustees of that fund voted to pay him $70.00 
and so continued till a controversy arose. The other 
societies in town began to feel that they should also 
share in this fund. The Baptist society was incorpora- 
in 1792 and the Universalist societv was formed not 
long after. The two other societies made their claim 
tor their share of the funds. The trustees denied their 
right to share in it. The next action was an attempt 
to dismiss ^Ir. Grcclc\' and to establish Rc\'. George 
Bates of the Universalist society in his stead. Much 
confusion arose botli in the meeting which voted on 
the matter and outside of it. Much hard feeling was 
caused and the two claimants carried their greviances 
to the courts of law. 

But it was finally agreed to compromise the matter 
by dividing the proceeds of the fund between Mr. 



HISTORICAL 37 

Greeley and Mr. Bates, and also it was provided that 
each party to the suits then pending, should settle his 
own costs. This compromise lasted five years. When 
the time had expired, the matter was again open to 
public discussion and ditficulties returned. This time 
an act was passed by the Legislature which provided 
means tor the settlement of the matter. The provision 
was that the trustees should divide the lunds between 
the several Protestant ministers in town, in proportion 
to the number of polls adhering or belonging to the so- 
cieties of the said ministers, respectivelv. This seems 
to have settled the trouble permanentlv and no turther 
strife is reported over the matter. 

The later pastors ot the Congregational Church ot 
Turner have been the following: Rev, Henry Eddy 
Irom 1844 to 1846; Rev. W. L. James from 1846 to 
1847; Rev. John Dodd from 1847 to 1854; Rev. 
Samuel Bowker trom 1855 to 1S60; Rev. S. C. liiggins

UNIVERSALIST CHURCH 

As we have already stated the Universalist church 
was organized in Turner at an early date. The peti- 
tion of the members who were to tbrm the societ\' 
was dated at Turner on December 24, 1803, and was 
signed by titty-two persons. There was considerable 
opposition on the part of the members of the lirst 
parish. Thev petitioned the General Court to protest 
against the organization of the societv, claiming that 
there was not the real purpose of a church societ\', but 
an attempt to escape the burdens of taxation. The 
act oi incorporation was unsatisiactorx" to the Unix'er- 
salists themselves. This was because it limited the 
time for receiving members to one year and made no 
provision tor receiving them alter that time. How- 
ever it was accepted and later was recinded by vote ot 
the Maine Legislatuic. 

It is stated that the first pastor of this church or 
rather the tirst preacher was Rev. Thomas Barnes ot 
Poland. He was not a settled preacher at this place, 



HISTORICAL 39 

but trom iSoi till his death in 1816 he was a preacher 
here frequently. In 1806 Rev. Sabastian Streeter, a 
native ot New Hampshire, preached here and awak- 
ened a deep interest in his belief. During the time 
previous to 1824 the preachers were as follows Revs. 
William Frost, Thomas Barnes, Jabez Woodman, 
William Farewell, Mr. Smith, Mr. Sargeant, Benjamin 
Thorn and others. Rev. Sylvanus Cobb commenced 
about 1S24 to preach to this society and remained with 
them two or three years. 

Among the other preachers who have been ident- 
ified with this society are the following: Rev. George 
Bates, Rev. W. R. French, Rev. H. C. Munson, Rev. 
G. M. D. Barnes, Rev. John Kimball, Rev. W. W. 
Smith and James Eastwood. 



BAPTISTS 

The Baptists ot this town were organized on Nov- 
ember 17, 1792. Until 1S16 there were but few 
additions to this church. In 1S16 there was a revival 
to quite an extent and many were taken into member- 
ship. Elder Ricker of Minot became their preacher at 
this time. The first regular pastor was Rev. Adam 
Wilson D. D. Others have been the following: John 
Hill, Charles Miller, William O. Grant, Josiah Hough- 
ton, Eliab Coy, Elder Curtis, Nathaniel Butler, C. 
Ayer, L. D. Hall, II. B. Marshall, Abner Morrill, Rev. 



40 HISTORICAL 

John Richardson, I. Record, A. A. Smith, S. A. Sever- 
ance, C. T. Clark, N. G. French, and others. 



METHODISTS 

The Methodists in this town did not organize till 
a comparatively late date. The year 1879 witnessed 
the organization of a society of this denomination by 
Rev. S. T. Record, at Turner Village. He remained 
with the church for a term ot three vears. His suc- 
cessor was Rev. N. C. Clitibrd, who remained for one 
year. Rev J. Moulton came to this church in 1S83 and 
remained three years. Rev. John P. Roberts came 
here in 1886 and remained one year. He was suc- 
ceeded by Rev. M. C. Mabry, who was the pastor until 
1891. His pastorate was very successful, adding manv 
new members and maintaining an interest which was 
very encouraging. He was succeeded by Rev. A. B. 
Graffam. Among others ha\e been C. H. B. Seli^-er 
and the present pastor, W. S. Jones. 



MEETING HOUSES 

The first meeting house erected in the town ot 
Turner was built in 17S3 on "Upper street". It was 
built by the following contractors who made their con- 
tract with the proprietors ot the town: Samuel Blake, 



HISTORICAL 41 

Henry Jones, John Keen, Nathan Niles, William Bed- 
ford, Joseph Leavitt, Benjamin Jones and Jabez Merrill. 

These men were paid £78 for the work and the 
building was to have the tollowing dimensions: not 
less than 35 feet square, 20 feet posts. Other specifica- 
tion were as follows: To board and clapboard 
the walls, board and shingle the root, set twentv-four 
window frames, glaze six windows, and lay the lower 
floor. 

The settlers became the owners oi the church and 
until 1819 it was the only church building in town. 
On that date the Congregationalists built a church 
further west, which stood until 1836 when it was des- 
troyed by fire. It was rebuilt on the site of the town 
meeting house. Not man\- years later this was sold 
and the one at the village was built. 

The Un:versalist church was erected on Lower 
street in 1S25. This house was taken down in 1848 
and a new one put up at Turner Centre. 

At Richmond's Corner the Universalists in 1S41 
put up a chapel, but as it was used by them only a 
portion of the time it was thrown open to anv religious 
sect which might wish to use it the remainder of the 
time. 

The Union church was built at North Turner and 
dedicated in 1877 free tVom debt. 



42 HISTORICAL 

Professional Men 

PHYSICIANS 

The first physician in town was Dr. Daniel Childs, 
who came from Woodstock, Connecticut, in 1781. He 
was a skillful physician and a prominent man in town 
affairs. Dr. Luther Carv came from Bridgewater, 
Massachusetts, in 1789. He was several times elected 
president of the Medical Society of Maine, and in 1805 
was appointed Judge ot the Court of Common Pleas 
tor the county of Oxford, which then had been re- 
cently organized. Dr. Timothv Howe was born in 
Hillsborough, New Hampshire, in 1778. He came 
to Turner about 1S04, and from here he removed to 
Brettun's Mills, Livermore, then returned to 
Turner, where he resided until his death in 1848. Dr. 
Philip Bradford was born at Turner Center, July 15, 
1789. He was educated at Hebron Academy and 
Dartmouth College. He located and practiced in this

Kent's Hill, Rcadfield, about 1825. He settled at 
Turner and practiced there until his death in 1879, 



HISTORICAL 43 

with the exception ot a term ot" serxiee as surgeon in 
tlie War of the Rebellion. Dr. Elbridge G. lulnecfjmb 
came iVom Livermore in 1814. He settled at Turner 
in 1865 or 1866. Dr. Richmond Bradford when a 
young man, opened an otiice at his lathers, in this 
town, but remo\'ed to .Vuburn, where he practiced 
until the infirmities of age compelled him to relinquish 
his duties. 

The next we shall mention is Dr. Roscoe Smith. 
He opened his office in Turner Village in 187 1. lie was 
a man very much devoted to his profession. Dr. 11. 
L. Irish commenced practice in Turner in 1875. Alter 
graduating tVom a medical office in New York, he 
reopened the office of his fither. Dr. II. D. Irish, where 
he practiced with great success. Dr. John T. Cushing

Sprague, F. C. Watson and L. E. Sampson. 



LAWYERS 

Turner's first law\-er is said to have been Ezekiel 
Whitman who came in 1799. William K. Porter 
practised here sixteen \ears. He w^as a native of Bath. 
Ilis death occured in 1834. Other lawvers ha\"e been 
the following: Charles Andrews, Timothy Ludden. 
Mandville T. Ludden, Barzilla Streeter and E. V. 
Stevens. 



44 HISTORICAL 

Post Offices and Mail Routes 



We quote the following from Rev. Dr. French: 
"The first county road through the town passed 
along Upper street, so called, and probably down b}' 
Mr. Barrill's, through the woods by the residence of 
Deacon Martin Bradford, where Alden Briijcrs now 
(1886) lives, over Dillingham Hill to North Auburn, 
thence over West Auburn Hill and Perkins Ridge to 
Minot Corner, known tormcrlv as Gro\eneur''s Corner 
through Poland and New Gloucester on to Portland. 
The road was extended north trom Upper street as the 
needs ot the settlers required. Inquirv makes it prob- 
able that this was the road traveled manv years to and 
from Portland, and that this was substantially the route 
by which the tirst settlers reached the plantation when 
the road was a path through the woods, and spotted 
trees served as jruide boards."

Hon. Eugene Hale, the present junior United 
States Senator from Maine, was a native ol this town 



HISTORICAL 45 

where he was born in the year 1836. Mr. Hale was 
the son of James Sulli\an Hale and Betsey (Staples) 
Hale. He received his educational training in the 
Turner schools and at Hebron Academy. He entered 
the profession of the law, studying in the office of 
Howard & Strout of Portland. When he reached the 
age of twenty-one he opened an office in Orland Maine. 
He soon remo\ed to Ellsworth where he entered into 
a partnership with Mr. Robinson, a well known lawyer 
and with a large practice. Mr. Robinson soon died 
and Mr. Hale succeeded to the business. 

He was later elected County Attorney and held 
the position for several years. He next went to the 
Maine Legislature, and after serving several terms was 
chosen a member of Congress where he served ten 
}-ears. In 1881 he was sent to the United States Senate 
and has held his position there ever since. He has by 
his steady persistence, his high order of ability, his ex- 
ceptionally good estimate of human nature, and his 
unswerving loyalty to his duties, advanced himself to a 
position of great prominence and infiuence in the 
I'nited States Go\ernmcnt at Washiuirton.

joined forces with the Republicans during the war 
serving two terms in the Maine House with Blaine, 
Dmgley and Frye. Alter the war he was appointed 
internal revenue collector by President Johnson, but 
like Johnson's other nominations Chase's was not con- 
firmed. Soon after the war was closed the ''Green- 
back Times'" came on and in this moxement it is need- 
less to say that Solon Chase was deepl\- concerned. 
His ''Them Steers" has become a term known 
where\er the American pc^litical joiu'nals are read. It 
suti'ices to say that when Mr. Weaver was nominated 
by the Greenbacks lor President, Solon Chase stood 
next in the conxention in the number of Notes recei\'ed. 
Mr. Chase published ''Chase's Chronicle" at Chase's 
Mills for about lour years. It was then removed to

Inquirer" and jniblished it about two years when it 
was remoxed to Auburn and suspended in ab(nit six 
months. The last paper which Mr. Chase published 
was entitled "Them Steers" which advocated the 
"Anti Fusion" idea, but the paper Nvas discontinued in

HISTORICAL 
TURNER CENTRE DAIRYING ASSOCIATION 



The Turner Centre Dairying Association was in- 
corporated in 1882, for the manutacture ' of butter, 
cheese and evaporated apples. The industry estab- 
lished by this company, is located in a rich valley at 
Turner Centre, surrounded by splendid hill and valley 
farms, conducted by intelligent, wide awake farmers. 
A cheese factory was located there early in the intro- 
duction of the associated system of dairying in Maine. 
This was successful, and the product had a great rep- 
utation. Later the creamery system was introduced 
and, still retaining the cheese factory, the basement 
was filled up, and Edwin L. Bradford began to make 
butter, February 4, 18S4. As the excellence of the 
product became known, the best markets sought its 
fToods. This attracted the attention of the farmers antl 
private dairymen, who also turned their cream into the 
factor^-. In 1888 the manufacture ot cheese was 
abandoned, the building remodelled and rchtted into a 
first- class creamery, with all the facilities to carry en 
a large business. The business is done under the name 
Turner Centre Creamery. It has a warehouse on M;iin 
■ street, Lewiston, and sends a large amount of cream u> 
^lassachusetts cities.
