". . . my grandfather and his two brothers land n 1788 in the town of FAirfield, Maine; and as I have been told by those who have gone before me and by the records that Elisha, Bartlett and Bryant Nye, three brothers, coming to the mouth of the Kennebec River in 1788, and were thirteen days arriving there from Sandwich, and they took a canoe to proceed up the Kennebec River to Augusta, where they shouldered their bags and walked twenty miles to Fairfield, and located their cabins on what is now called Ohio Hill.
