Calais Advertiser July 22, 1914, pg 5: Wesley church, at the Brook, was the scene of a happy event, Wednesday afternoon, July 15th, when many friends and relatives fathered to witness the marriage of Miss Cora Etta Glidden, eldest daughter of Mr. Horace Glidden, and Mr. Eben Smith, both of Calais.  The church was prettily decorated for the occasion, and while the wedding march was being played by Mrs. Leon Spearin, the bridal party entered, and took their place beneath an arch of green and white, and the ceremony was performed by the pastor, Rev. D. McClain.  The bridesmaids were Misses Susie Glidden, Florence Hill, Miss Hoppe, and Annie Mahar, and Mary Elizabeth Gardner and Harriet Greene? were very dainty little S? girls.   After felicitations and congratulations the young couple departed for their new home, the pleasantly situated house near the end of the ? on Main Street recently vacated by Mr. Clark Reynolds.

Town of Orland, http://www.orlandme.org: LeadingMen.htm: John Hancock, the first town treasurer, was a cousin to Governor Hancock....History2.htm Between 1767 & 1780 quite a number of settlers came from Boston and vicinity and took up lots on the east side of Eastern River. Among the most noted of these were John Hancock, Samuel Keyes, Samuel Soper, Calvin Turner, Asa Turner & Humphrey Holt. ...In 1773, Michael Davis, an old hunter, came from Concord MA, and took up a lot on a ridge of land three miles from any settlers. He lived a solitary life until James Smith, Nathan Hancock, John Gross, Joshua Gross and Andrew Craige took up settlers' lots near him, which were run out in 1780. Except Jas Smith, these were sons of the first settlers in the plantation.
