History of Unity, Maine (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from History of Unity, Maine To the casual observer, the collecting Of these brief notes may seem a Simple task, but I find that all those who have undertaken a Similar work tell a different story. It is evident that but little care was given our early records, as we find them in bad condition, many entirely missing. I have spent much time in looking over what we have, and in searching the records of Massachusetts prior to 1820. It has been difficult to trace the ownership of the different farms back to their first owners. Often there have been conflicting state ments, which has rendered it impossible to give a correct version. I Wish to say that if errors or omis sions occur, the absence Of the requisite information must be my apology. I intend to leave blank pages at the back of the book, where any error may be re corded for the benefit Of the future historian. To the Brief History Of Unity, published in 1892 by our worthy townsman, the late Edmund Murch, I am indebted for many notes of interest. I wish also to thank the many friends who have assisted me in compiling these statistics and to express at this time to the citizens of Unity my appreciation of the loyal support they have given me during the many years that I have lived and worked among them.
