- I live on Mount Desert Island, Hancock County, Me.
I have an old deed 1777, that mentions "Mount Desert Island in the Territory
of Sagadahoc" --"Pleasant Point situated on the westerly side of the
harbor, now called Bass Harbor now lying and in and adjacent to territories
Book 1 page 417.
Can anyone tell me or tell me who to get in touch with, that can explain the
relationship there, if Sagadahoc is a County down the coast and Bass Harbor
on Mount Desert Island is in Hancock County, why are they being mentioned as
being adjacent to each other? Was there a big change in names after 1777?
Thanks for the help.
Rosalie in Bar Harbor, Me.
