    Notes 
    • He learned the trade of house and ship builder before he reached his majority, and at the age of eighteen years was established at Castine, but at twenty-one he, in company with a friend, built a rough boat and embarked with their two chests of tools for Mt. Desert, then an unbroken wilderness, containing but few inhabitants. He did much toward developing the resources of Mt. Desert, and built bridges, laid out the road, secured postal conveniences, built wharves, encouraged steamboat conveniences, and developed the fisheries. He built the first hotel at Bar Harbor. In 1845 he represented the place in the Legislature, and in years later. He was a senator from Hancock county in the sessions of 1861-62, and a member of the Governor's Council in 1865. He collected the customs of the Island, and was also the civil magistrate, first as a justice of the peace, and later as trial justice. He moved to Georgetown, Mass., in 1869, retired from active work, and died Aug. 4, 1882.

      Children born in Trenton and Mt. Desert, Maine.
