Bagaduce that is now called Castine??
According to "The Length And Breadth Of Maine" by Stanley
Bearce Attwood, Bagaduce is the "former name of peninsula and region
near Castine". I don't see the word Bagaduce anywhere on his
map of the region surrounding Castine so I can't be sure exactly what he
means. He also lists a Bagaduce River. In Delorme's "The
Maine Atlas And Gazetteer" I see the Bagaduce River running between
Castine to the west and Brooksville to the east.
Also, he mentions a Winter Hll near Boston (I know that is MA) - is that
now called something else?
Sorry I have no info for Winter Hill.
or was there a Fox Island?
The Fox Islands that I'm familiar with are those that make up the two
towns of North Haven and Vinalhaven which lie in the middle of Penobscot
Attwood also lists a Fox Island in Lubec. I don't see it in
Delorme's so it may be one of the smaller islands.
Attwood also lists Fox Islands in Phippsburg. In Delorme's I see
some tiny islands labelled Fox Islands just off Popham Beach State Park
were also building Forts on Fort Hill (?) and another on Brinehorse
Mill (??) And is there a Fort Abeston? And
one of his company-mates was from Wolfsborough,
Attwood lists a Fort Hill in Gorham. Delorme's shows a Fort Hill
Brook in Gorham. I have nothing on the other names.
for any help you can give me.
I hope it helps you in your search.
