Laura Elizabeth Poor, "The First International Railway and the
Colonization of New England, Life and Writings of John Alfred Poor," G. P.
Putnam and Sons,
"Having procured boats of the Indians, in the month of May, 1789, the family, nine in all, embarked and sailed easily down the Androscoggin to the mouth of the Ellis River, whence they stemmed the current. They supped and rested for the night under a large pine. Early the next morning they re-embarked and proceeded up the river to the Forks, where they were received by some Indian families, from whom they had procured their boats, into their cabins, and treated them with much hospitality for the night.
"The year before, Mr. Merrill and his sons had felled some trees, and made a slight camp about two miles from the Indian cabins. The third morning, Mrs. Merrill with one son and a guide walked through the woods to this place, and the other children in the boats were pushed up the stream against the camp. It was towards noon, and they now prepared what has been called their Thanksgiving Dinner. Their present situation is thus described:
"'The cabin they had built was so small that very little could be put into it; therefore some of the men felled a few trees and stripped off the bark; they set up four crotched stakes, and laid on saplings, and spread bark overhead so as to keep off the sun and rain. Under this shelter they put the articles which the weather would injure. They then drove stakes into the ground, and laid wicker brush for their bedsteads, to keep their beds from the ground, - they having no floor, and there being no boards nearer than twenty-five miles, nor any road by which they could be brought. The children pulled up the small bushes, and wet and trod the ground so as to make it hard. This finished the third day from Bethel. The next day their companions from Bethel returned.'
"In the year 1791 many beginnings were made by the proprietors. The next year one more family came to town; and in 1793-4 three or four females. In May of 1793, their oldest daughter, not fifteen years old, was married. In October of the same year their house and most of its contents were burned. The children sleeping overhead were awakened by the fire in the roof, and barely escaped, losing all but the clothes in which they slept. This was a heavy loss; they were able, however, to erect a frame house before winter, - a saw-mill having been erected a year or two earlier, - and thenceforward, with their neighbors, now becoming more numerous, advanced in genial prosperity. A church was formed in 1800; the town was incorporated by the name of East Andover in 1804."
