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 The researcher will be led to the original court records and deeds, and to documents in the other published and unpublished collections of miscellaneous documents that survive for this region.

Note: This book is also among the 22 volumes in our popular Compendium of New England Pioneers, which is available at 66% OFF the regular retail price of the individual books if purchased separately.
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.
