commenced here by emigrants from Canada, in 1782. This town lies at the
north-west corner of the State of New England . . . The soil is good
and finely timbered . . . The French made a small settlement here more
than 100 years ago and erected a stone wind-mill upon a point, which has
in consequence, received the name of Wind-mill Point. The settlement
of this township by the English, was commenced by emigrants from St. Johns
in Lower Canada about the year 1782. The settlers were originally
from the States, but, being loyalists, they found it necessary, during
the revolutionary war, to shelter themselves in Canada. For some
years after the settlement was commenced, they were much harassed and perplexed
by the diversity of claimants to the lands."
