History of Machias ME: "An association of 16 persons was accordingly formed during the winter of 1763, for the purpose of building a double saw mill at Machias, to be owned in as many shares--and it was decided to commence operations the ensuing spring. /P/ Smiths' Centennial records the names of the Associates in this undertaking, to commence the first English settlement at Machias as follows: Samuel Scott, Sylvanus Scott (brothers), Timothy Libby, George Libby, David Libby (brothers), Solomon Stone, John Stone (brothers), Daniel Hill, Japhet Hill (brothers), Isaiah Foster, Westrook Berry, Isaac Larrabee, Daniel Fogg. The above 13 were all residents of Scarborough and all lived at a District in the town known as Black Point. The remaining 3 were Thomas Buck of Plymouth, Captain of a coaster; Jonathan Carlton of Sheepscot; William Jones of Portsmouth NH. .... The women and children who had remained at Scarborough were removed to Machias in August. .... During the year 1764 the Inhabitants made nearly one million six hundred thousand feet of lumber, which was no doubt an extraordinary season's work.....In 1769 a company of militia of nearly 100 men was formed; Stephen Jones was chosen Captain; Benjamin Foster (afterwards Colonel) Lieutenant and Sylvanus Scott Ensign.
