Maine
 
Pioneers on Maine Rivers, with Lists to 1651
Compiled from the Original Sources
by W.D. Spencer
CD Windows & MacIntosh

Most of the early settlers of what is now the state of Maine were fishermen or fur traders, who tended to settle at the mouths of the many rivers in that region. Spencer has systematically surveyed the early settlers of these rivers, providing an essential insight into the lives of these pioneers.  

Spencer has produced a narrative of the early events at each of the bays and rivers that he studied, gathering together the details of the earliest settlements in each location, as well as telling of the unusual or critical events occurring there.

Along with these narratives, Spencer has provided two other features that will be especially helpful to the genealogist. First, he has scrupulously documented each of his statements. The researcher will be led to the original court records and deeds, and to documents in the other published and unpublished collections of miscellaneous documents that survive for this region.

Second, at the end of his story for each river or bay, he appends a list of the settlers of that location, with a brief summary of the activities of that settler there. Since many of these pioneers moved from one location to another, they will appear in more than one of the lists, allowing the researcher to combine these short accounts into a full life.

This volume is an important companion to the Genealogical Dictionary of Maine and New Hampshire by Noyes, Libby and Davis

Pioneers on Maine Rivers, with Lists to 1651

Maine
Gazetteer of the State of Maine
with Numerous Illustrations (1886)
by Geo. J. Varney
CD Windows & MacIntosh

This early gazetteer of about 630 pages is principally an alphabetical description of "every town, plantation, mountain, lake, and bay" within the State of Maine along with its topography, boundaries, history, and statistics. In most cases, the author also details the original settlers, early churches and ministers, and other prominent citizens of each town. This traditional 19th-century gazetteer is preceded by detailed history of the State comprising some 60 pages. In narrative style, the author describes the State as a whole and its bays, harbors, capes, islands, mountains, valleys, rivers, lakes, ponds, and other geographic features. An interesting section describes the Swedish Emigration of 1870, the solicitation of some 25 families from Sweden to populate the "wild lands" of the State. The successful settlement became known as "New Sweden" in Aroostook County. Additional sections of the book describe the geology, climate, vegetation, native birds, fishes and other animals. The author also goes to great lengths to itemize the early institutions with sections devoted to "Railroads and Telegraphs," "Civil Divisions and Population", "Government, Finances, and Military Organizations," "Charitable and Reformatory Institutions", "Education, Literature, and the Public Press." Further sections explore the religion of the State, the history of native Indians, and the civil history, including "The War of the Rebellion." The author has compiled a valuable reference for researchers who are interested in the early settlers and history of the State.
