Washington County, Maine has yet another great new research tool! In this massive work the authors have documented every one of the 230 families which settled in the towns of Addison, Centerville, Columbia, and Columbia Falls, in the settled portions of the Pleasant River Valley, prior to 1850.

This enormous research project was begun in the 1920s by Clarence H. Drisko, and continued by Leonard F. Tibbetts since 1930 and Darryl B. Lamson since 1960. Using the 1778 List of Settlers, 1778 and 1784 petitions, the 1798 Direct Tax, all census records 1790-1850 and a multitude of other early sources, the authors have been able to document virtually every individual and family which settled here.

As many as eight generations are included on the various families. Most families are carried down into the mid-19th century in terms of births, and thus into the 20th century for deaths.

Over the past 65 years many of the very earliest family records and other genealogical sources used by the authors have become less accessible or been lost. As a result the value of this study and ones like it is incalculable. We highly recommend this title to all Washington County researchers.
