Editors Notes


Dear Sloops Log Readers,
Welcome to the autumn 2014 issue. Please enjoy.
A Letter From the President by Donna Miller Damon.
We are continuing our series of census reports with Toby Webb. This time we look at the
18800 list of Chebeague residents.
Donna Miller Damon will continue working with the above census and tell us how people
were making a living on the island in 1880.
Nancy Maull, one of our many island artists gives us the story of how she ended up on the
east end of Chebeague.
We have some wonderful photos from Ken Hamilton showing Chebeague and Crow Islands
with very few trees.
In this issues Toll of the Sea update, Donna will focus on the twentieth century.
Unlike the previous stories these tragedies are familiar to many islanders.
Its the Portland waterfront back when with the most amusing tales from Mabel and Jackie
Doughty, and, Sylvia and Audrey Hamilton.
Suzie Stavropoulos has given us some quotes from the Six Town Times of 120 years ago and
some recipes from the 1961 Chebeague Island Cookbook.
Following up on Martha Os story of vanished island names, I will give a short history of the
Curit family.
And last but not least Mystery Photo, old and new!
Sincerely,
Jane Frizzell, Editor
Thanks to all our contributors.

Louise Rich Todd. The
painting depicts the small boats
used by the West Winds Girls
Sailing Camp on the north shore
of Chebeague on Carters Point
Road. The camp was operated in
the 1930s and 1940s by Jan and
Marion Friis. The Sloops Log will
be presenting articles on this camp
in our next issue.
We are very glad to use a painting by Louise. We all fondly remember her life and will continue
to enjoy her art for many years to
come.

Fall 2014

From the Presidents Desk:

Photos-CIHS Collection

lthough it is still fall, it feels like


winter after the recent snow
storm. A century from now folks
will discover a diary written this fall and
learn about the surprise storm. What else
will they learn about what Chebeague was
like in 2014? They will read about our
triumphs and tragedies - the challenges we
face as inhabitants of an unbridged island
in the 21st century and a community that
is busy beyond belief? Will they reflect on
the various aspects of everyday life that
we take for granted and learn that Louise
Todd died and Carol Munroe had a baby
the same week? Will they be surprised
when they read that so many families have
moved to the island that the writer cant
name the children in the school? How
different will life be like then? Will neighbors still help neighbors? I hope so, for
throughout the centuries of Chebeagues
recorded history, the one constant in an
ever changing world has been the ability of
this community to come together in time
of need.
ver the years several diaries have
been donated to the Museum. On
the surface the daily recording of weather,
vital statistics, and daily events arent
too exciting, but when one delves deeply
you can be transported back in time and
walk the roads to the post office, drive
in a buggy to church, bait a trawl in a
fish house, blast 40 tons of rock off from
Banges, entertain friends at the Mayflower
Club, win a prize speaking contest at the
Hall, plant bluenose potatoes, or attend a
seance. Diaries and journals connect the
places and names and make the past
come alive.
his past summer a woman named
Virginia McGrath came by the Museum. She and her daughter were staying
at the hotel. They had made a special trip
to Chebeague from Massachusetts. Her
mother and two uncles had played in a trio
at Charlie Hamiltons Hill Crest Hotel in
1916. The Kearney trio, came from Connecticut, and was comprised of Adeline
Mary, 19, piano; Alfred,15 cornet; and
John, 14, violin. Their parents had visited
them once during the summer.

Sloops Log 2

deline kept a photographic journal


chronically that summer. Virginia
McGrath was 82, and she wanted to make
sure that the journal and her mothers
story was preserved. She arrived unannounced to make the gift. Entitled
Memories of a summer spent at Hill Crest
at Chebeague Island, Maine, The Acadia
of Casco Bay. She chronicles the summer by including postcards, photographs,
tide calendars, menus, and brochures and
describes trips to Old Orchard, Portland,
and Peaks Island. She includes photos of
people playing tennis, fishing parties, and
interactions with the Native Americans
who summered here. Photographs of island
houses and landmarks, coupled with journal entries, describe a Chebeague that no
one now living ever experienced.

n several entries she mentioned Admiral


Robert Peary and Eagle Island: Peary
and his wife visited the Hill Crest and our
hotel is very proud to have his signature,
which due to his hands being frozen on his
northern journeys, is very indistinct.
They returned to Connecticut on the
Eastern Steamship Ransom B. Fuller.
The story of life on Chebeague is richer
because of journals such as the one donated by Virginia McGrath.

Chebeague in 1880:
Agriculture Peaks on Chebeague
by Donna Miller Damon
now known as Central and near the Hook,
respectively, which provided a local market
for the islands most valuable farms. Uncle
Jack Hamilton had died and his son, John
F. Hamilton, captain of the M.M. Hamilton, hired Sweden native, David Petersen,
to operate the farm. Hamilton and his
wife spent summers there. The Hamilton
Company store at Hamiltons Landing,
operated by Hamiltons brother, James,
provided another market, as the store
continued to buy from islanders as well.
(see mystery photo article page 19).
ach Census asks different questions
making decade by decade comparisons
difficult. The following is a composite
picture of agriculture on Chebeague in
1880. Chebeaguers mowed 344 acres producing 270 tons of hay. They had 75 milk
cows that produced 6760 pounds of butter
and an excess of 912 gallons of milk that
was sold. Islanders owned twelve horses,
thirty oxen, and 38 other cattle. 66 calves
were dropped (born) of which 27 were
purchased, 26 were sold live, and 32 were
slaughtered. Some of the calves were destined to become milk cows or oxen. The
excess males were usually slaughtered. 14
new lambs were born of which 3 were sold

and 7 were slaughtered. 32 fleece resulted


in 110 pounds of wool. 33 swine were
recorded. It would appear that the number
of sheep were dwindling.
or the first time the Census recorded
the number of chickens and eggs
on the 46 farms. Based on the data,
585 chickens laid 4265 eggs! 16.5 acres
produced 198 bushels of barley; 9 acres
produced 205 bushels of corn; and 2027
bushels of potatoes grew on 43.5 acres.
Islanders harvested 1386 bushels of beans.
They cut 220 cords of wood that they sold
for $663, which is about $3 a cord!!!
everal families moved to Chebeague
after the Civil War. Perhaps one of the
most interesting new Chebeague farmers
was Andrew Tozier. He and his wife Lizzie
bought a small 10 acre farm on the West
End that extended from Colemans Cove
across South Road to the Cushmans. The
Toziers had a cow that dropped a calf, 20
chickens that produced 150 eggs, and they
grew about 40 bushels of potatoes. While
a small farmer, Tozier had big stories. He
regaled the island boys with tales of the
Civil War. Tozier had served with Joshua
Chamberlain during the War serving at
Little Round Top, as well as Petersburg,

production had increased by
1880, stone slooping was still an
important economic driver. Many Chebeaguers spent the decade of the 1880s in
Penobscot Bay building the the Rockland
Breakwater or carrying granite to railheads; tourism had yet to impact Chebeague. When Edward L. Elwell, an author
and promoter of tourism in Portland and
Casco Bay, published Portland and Vicinity in 1876, he predicted that: ...before
the lapse of many years it [Casco Bay]
must become one of the most frequented
summer resorts on our coast...it offers a
most desirable place for the recreation of
visitors, and the happiness of its permanent inhabitants. While Elwells prophesy
for the islands desirability as a tourist
destination was coming true for Long
Island and Peaks Island, a quarter century
would elapse before tourism would be an
economic driver on Chebeague. Ewell
described Great Chebeague as:
...a large island...of two thousand acres,
and has a considerable population, with
churches and schools. It has never been
much visited as a summer-resort. Chebeague was a community, and agriculture
was an important segment of Chebeagues
three legged economic stool. In 1880
Great Chebeague was home to 42 people
who identified themselves as farmers. A
total of 46 farms were included in the Agricultural Census, because four farmers
were renters or hired hands.
nfortunately, the names on part of
one page of the Agricultural Census
was illegible. The numbers could be deciphered but not the names. The long time
farmers were aging and farms were being
passed on to the next generation. Henry
Mansfield Jr. had deeded his 65 acre homestead adjacent to Indian Island, to his son,
Isaiah Mansfield, who continued the Mansfield tradition of having the top producing
Chebeague farm. William V. Littlefield,
lived in house razed by the Gilmartins
and continued to manage and farm the
large holdings of his father, William T.
Littlefield, who owned farmland on both
the back and front shores. Littlefield and
Mansfield also operated stores at what is

where he carried the wounded Chamberlain from the field. The Toziers left
Chebeague during the1890s, but not before leaving islanders with an eye witness
account of the turning point in the
Civil War.
he in-migrants also including several
members of the Hannaford family
from Cape Elizabeth, who bought three
farms off the North Road. John Hannafords farm included the old Chebeague
dump and cemetery; Roscoe Hannafords
farm was located in the Sunset area
abutting what was referred to as Pogy
Cove; and their father, George Greely
Hannaford, lived a house that sat on
the cellar hole that is visible at the
intersection of Schoolhouse and North
Road. When George Hannaford died his
daughter Mary Dyer and her son, Quincy
operated the farm. (The house was moved
and is still extant diagonally across from
the Kids Place, now Kidd formerly Alvin
Newcomb.) Later one of their relatives,
who was a founder of Hannaford Brothers, would own one of the farms for a short
time. The story goes that they and other
islanders sold their extra products because
increased immigration created a demand
for food in large metropolitan areas such as
New York. Together the Hannafords had
more than thirty acres under cultivation,
which equaled the Mansfields holdings
near Indian Island and was five acres more
than William Seabury (the Waldo Cove
area) and ten more than the Higgins Farm
(Dayton). All of these farms had additional acreage but this figure represents acreage that was actually under cultivation.
uring the decade of the 1870s the the
number of apple orchards exploded!
In 1870 there were only 3 commercial
orchards listed. By 1880, 32 farmers
harvested 592 bushels of apples from 934
trees on 42.5 acres. Some of the orchards
were established but others had been just
planted. Mary Hannaford Dyers 125 apple
trees produced 75 bushels indicating
that the trees were established. It is likely
that some of them had been been planted
decades before by the Morse family, whose

William V. Littlefields farmhouse was originally the Solomon Hamilton home. It was located on the
site of the Gilmartin house near Central, and then known as Littlefields Landing.

farm extended from North Road to the
west of Schoolhouse Road, but they were
not a commercial crop in 1870. William
V. Littlefield picked 60 bushels from 120
trees. His farms included the Massachsetts Colony and the Carters Point Road.
Could some of the ancient apple trees
tucked into the woods be this old? David
Petersen, hired man at the John F. Hamilton farm (Gwillim), reported 30 apple
trees that produced 18 bushels of apples
that sold for $10. Is it possible that the
apple tree in MacDermotts (Jones) yard is
one of those trees?

ronically, this is the last US Agricultural Census of Chebeague, for from


the 1880s on agriculture declined as the
old farmers died off and their descendants
left the island. Many of these abandoned
ancestral farms became cottage developments creating a new economic opportunity to replace agriculture. Despite
the temptation to cash out, the Curits,
Jenks,and Higgins continued to farm their
land into the mid twentieth century. So
when you walk through the woods and see
a wheel rut think back to the days when
much of Chebeague was cleared and under
cultivation and a loaded ox cart traversed
the farm field where you now stand.

Chebeague in the
1880 U.S. Census

By Morrison Toby Webb


he Sloops Logs ongoing series of
census transcriptions continues with
the Federal census of 1880. A nationwide count every ten years is required
by the U. S. Constitution, principally
to determine the allocation of seats in
the House of Representatives. Various
pieces of additional information have
been gathered in each census, however,
and from that information we can learn a lot about the island
community.
The census of 1880 was the fourth in which the government
did not merely count the population, but listed every citizen
by name, gender and age. For the first time, the 1880 list also
identified a persons specific relationship to the head of each
household. It specified marital status, profession and literacy
status and counted various medical issues. For births in the
prior year, it even noted the month of the recent birth. Finally,
in an era of greatly increasing immigration into the United
States, it recorded each persons place of birth, as well as those
of both of each persons parents.
hebeague had not changed dramatically in the
decade from 1870. The population had increased
slightly, from 510 to 536, 276 males and 260 females.
Half the population was aged 20 or younger, but this
was a decline from 53% in 1870; the school population had
similarly declined, from 193 to 154. One gets the sense that
the island community was maturing; most households were
led by men in their thirties or forties and there were now 41
people aged sixty or older. Lucy Webber was eighty-five, David
Hamilton was eighty-two, farmers Robert Hamilton and Seth
Higgins were eighty, David Bennett and his wife Susan and
Joseph Thompson were all seventy-five. Twenty-one widows or
widowers were living on the island.
he industrialization that was beginning to change America
had not reached the island. Three professions continued
to employ almost all the men: sailor (including two identified as sea captains and one as a rigger) (54), farmer (42), and
fisherman (31). This was a decline in the number of fishermen,
a slight increase in the number of sailors, and a surprising
increase in the number of farmers (from only 22) in 1870. In
addition, there were two teachers, five carpenters, one ships
carpenter, three retail grocers (running the Hamilton store on
the Stone Wharf), one clergyman, one physician, and one mail
carrier.
Almost all of the adult women were keeping house. The
only two exceptions were Ruth Ann Ross, 44, living with her
parents David and Mary Hamilton, and Martha Mansfield, 48.
Both were dressmakers. Both were widows.
Of interest given trends that emerged in the next two decades of the nineteenth century, no one on Chebeague in 1880
was employed in anything connected to the tourism industry.

ike industrialization, immigration had not had much


of an effect on the island. Almost everyone had been
born in Maine, as had his or her parents. One now
well-established family had come from out of state: the
Roses from Rhode Island, and a number of spouses had come
from elsewhere in New England or New Brunswick and Nova
Scotia. But Hugh Bowen, born in Ireland, and farmers David
Petersen and Charles Gillott, both born in Sweden, were the
only three men to have come from across the Atlantic. Petersens house keeper, Mary Warner, was from England. Joanna,
wife of William Ross, had been born in Prussia. John Hannafords three daughters had been born in California. Everyone
else was from the Northeast United States or Atlantic Canada.
Instead, the island families were growing in place. One
hundred forty-six Hamiltons were more than a quarter of the
islands population. There were thirty-four Rosses, twenty-nine
Doughtys, twenty-five Webbers, twenty-four Thompsons, eighteen Curits, sixteen Littlefields and fourteen Hannafords.
ost of the records of the 1890 U. S. census (and all of
those relating to Maine) were lost in a fire. The next article in this series, therefore, will jump ahead to 1900. During
the two decade interlude, steam engines at sea and on railroads
brought great changes to the stone sloop industry which had
profited Chebeague and brought tourists to Maine. Both led
to significant changes in the life of the island.

s with prior transcriptions, the transcription of the


original census pages which follows attempts to record
precisely what the census taker wrote, which was not
always accurate. The residents of Chebeague were not identified as such in the census; these names have been pulled
from the Town of Cumberland census based upon our general
knowledge of island history. To conserve space, columns in
the census which offer no new information have been omitted: all people listed were white, and there were no entries
in columns headed months unemployed, sickness/disability,
blind, deaf or dumb, insane. The columns cannot read
contained one name, cannot write contained four names,
crippled one name and idiotic one name.

How I Came to Chebeague

by Nancy Maull

ust after my son was born, we rented a Harvard-owned


house on Sutton Island off Northeast Harbor. I had never
been to Maine. I was enchanted.
Then, Harvard still had three Maine rental housesdonated
by alumsfor the use of faculty and staff. Generations of
Harvard people came to know and love Maine this way, just
as the donors had intended.
But Suttons was not my first northern island. When I was
a kid, we lived year round on an island in the Oslofjord:
Nesya, or Nose Island. It was about an hour from Oslo. The
island was then sparsely populated in the winter, lively in
the summer, and with access across a very old high wooden
bridge. When we took the island bus, we had to get out and
walk over a wooden bridge too old for a fully loaded bus.
Coming back to an island was always a dream. (My brother
ended up living on Kauai.) When my parents died, I wanted
to remember them with what they left me. I was looking up
and down the coast and came to spend a Chebeague weekend with my great friends Irene Winter and Bob Hunt.
nd that is how I came to Chebeague. I found a cottage
on the East End that had belonged to the Tanguays
and then the Olivers. Doug Higgins and others helped me
fix it up. The Porters were my store of lore and information.
Fran Calder was my lifeline to the mainland. So many others
welcomed me. I am endlessly grateful.
On my narrow Chebeague end, the waters reflected light
comes from both sides: there is almost always a windward
and leeward shore. Out for a walk on the beach, take your
pick. The confluence of light, wind, and water makes a
shining play of color, an atmosphere unparalleled. And then
there are the birds.
Without the romance wed live somewhere else, somewhere more convenient, less make-do, more manufactured.
Not a Maine island.

A Different
Chebeague

All photo-Kenneth Hamilton Collection

The photos on this page were sent to


us by Ken Hamilton. They all show
a different Chebeague from the one
we now know. In them we can see
the lack of trees and views even from
the middle of the island.

The first photo gives us the


view from Kens brother
Therons house. The Island
Commons is on the left,
and the Loders house is on
the right. Bangs Island is in
the background.

The second photo is a picture of


Waldo Krafts watching the ice taking
out the end of Eastern landing, along
with the little shed on the end.

The third photo shows Crow Island


with nary a tree.

Thank you Ken


for sharing these.

Toll of the Sea


by Donna Miller Damon

o date nearly $3000 has


been donated to the Toll of
the Sea Memorial in memory
of Sanford Doughty. We are
still accepting donations as we deliberate the appropriate type of memorial.
In the last issue we began to document Chebeagues long list of the Toll
of the Sea focusing on the nineteenth
century. In this issue we focus on the
twentieth century. Unlike the previous
stories these tragedies are familiar to
many islanders.
The Doughty family has had more
than their share of tragedies on the
sea. The first is the story of the loss
of Melvin Doughty, one of Sanford
Doughtys brothers. The story is
transcribed from an article that was
published on the front page of the
Portland Press Herald, June 26, 1933.
[The following is an accurate transcription.That is not to say all of the
facts presented are accurate.]

Melvin H. Doughty, 19, Is Swept


To Death Off Fathers Vessel

Great Chebeague Island Youth May Have Been


Knocked Overboard As Boom Kicked Over

nother sea tragedy was written


Saturday night and recorded here
early Sunday when the fishing
schooner Reliance returned to its home port
at the western end of Great Chebeague Island
following a three weeks swordfishing trip off
Block Island, Mass. The Reliance, skippered
by its owner and widely-known local fisherman, Capt. Eben Gus Doughty, returned
home without the skippers second youngest
son, Melvin Herbert Doughty, 19, swept to his
death from his lone vigil at the wheel while
his father, two brothers and a brother-in-law
were in the forecastle below. They are ignorant of the exact manner in which the youth
went to his death. The tragedy occurred near
Gurnet Point Light, 15 miles off the Cape Cod
Canal.
In a halting voice and to a group of
heartbroken relatives and friends, Captain
Gus Sunday morning related the harrowing account of dashing from the forecastle
to the deck when he felt the boom suddenly jibe over. Reaching the deck, Captain
Doughty related, he stood paralyzed for
several seconds to discover that his son was
not in sight. Immediately his other two boys,
both in their early twenties, Ellis and Eben,
Jr., and his son-in-law, James Rich, rushed
to the stern seeking vainly a trace of Melvin
in a comparatively calm sea. It was just after
6 p.m. when the tragedy occurred, Captain
Doughty related. For almost three hours
the little schooner circled round and round,
four pairs of eyes glued to the waters seeking
the body of the missing boy. Long after dark
the distraught father gave orders to head for
home. The return trip was a night of horror to
the heavy hearted crew of four. None went
below, each piercing the darkness with hopeful eyes hoping at least might surrender the
body of Melvin.
Captain Doughty has two conjectures
concerning the manner in which his son went
to his death. He might have been swept off
the railless deck when the boom kicked over
or, attempting to drag in the sun-bleached
swords being towed, have been dragged across

the stern deck into the water, he believes.


Not more than 10 minutes had elapsed
between the time Melvin had gone on watch
and when he disappearance was noted, his
father said. The rest of the small crew was
below playing cards when the sudden jerking
of the boat brought Captain Doughty to the
deck.
Captain Doughty said that he is inclined
to believe that Melvin turned for a moment
to loosen the rope which held the swords to
draw them aboard when the boom swung
around and knocked him unconscious into
the sea. The schooner, he reported was making good time when the accident occurred
and it is possible that by the time the schooner was halted and its course retraced that the
youth had sunk for the last time. The swords
were missing, lending weight to Captain
Doughtys theory.
The mother of the drowned youth was in
a state of collapse at her home Sunday while
neighbors and friends lovingly ministered to
her and the physical needs and her family.
Captain Gus was obviously ( ) by his
experience and remained close to his home
and family throughout the day.
Melvin was described as a husky boy and
a capable swimmer. He, with his brothers,
frequently accompanied his father on his fishing expeditions. Most tragic of all, from the
viewpoint of the neighbors, was the fact that
the anxious mother at home had been rejoicing Saturday that her man and her boys
would soon be home. They had been gone
approximately three weeks on their latest trip
when the seaworthy schooner pointed her
nose into its familiar cove on the upper end of
the island.
Surviving the drowned youth besides his
mother and those who accompanied him on
his last trip are his four sisters, Mrs. James
Ross (Etta), Mrs. James Rich (Nettie), Miss
Margaret Doughty and Miss Marilyn Doughty; and three brothers, Warren E. Doughty,
and Sanford Doughty, his youngest, and
Sidney A. Doughty, the oldest. All survivors
are residents of the island.
Fall 2014

Years later, Sanford heard


that some Navy documents
had been released and a log
book told about a Navy vessel coming into Portland in a
snow storm on New Years
Eve 1941 and thought they
might have hit something.
Sanford always felt that the
Marlene had been run over
by that ship.
Sid left his wife Venora,
who was pregnant with Lawson, sons Charlie, Wesley,
and Manley and daughters
Mabel (Campbell), Katharine (Morrill), and Marlene
(Bowen) as well as his
mother, Minnie Doughty and
siblings. There would more
tragedies on the sea in the
Doughty family in the years
to come.

Photo-CIHS Collection

he accompanying
newspaper clipping
tells the story of the
loss of Melvin Doughtys oldest brother Sidney Doughty
and nephews, Sidney Jr. and
Roger Doughty. It was a
snowy New Years Eve and
there had been a dance at the
Mens Club (located on what
is now the Randy Dunfey
lot on South Road). Sid
Doughty, a well-known Chebeague fisherman, set out
for a fishing trip on his boat,
Marlene, with his two oldest
sons. They never returned.
Sanford Doughty, Sids
youngster brother, went up
and down the coast trying to
locate them but to no avail.

We received this letter from Russell Cleary, Paul Clearys brother. He wrote it after reading the last Sloops Log.

Billy
Troy
By Russell Cleary

ooking again at the list I now see my


cousins name, William Troy - always
Billy to us.
We were staying that August of 1966 at
the Morse Cottage, which was then being
rented by my Great Aunt Alice Gorman
and her sister Anna G. Norton, my Grandmother. My Aunt Nan Norton Troy, her
son, and his playmate, had gone to the
Hook to swim.
The first indication that something was
different that Summers day was that from
the porch a few of us saw a group of Chebeague men, about 5 or 6 abreast, striding
rapidly and very purposefully on the road
and heading toward the Hook in the middle
of a bright, sunny workday which immediately struck us as unusual.

Sloops Log 13

They were members of the Island solid


citizenry of the time, and included Jasper
Smith and Clyde Bowen.
How were they summoned and how did
they so assemble so quickly? There were no
cell phones then. Was there a fire whistle,
or were two-way radios involved? In any
case, it was a rapid response.
Billy had drowned at the Hook, as the
tidal current swept over the sand-bar. His
mother was able to save Billys playmate,
but not her son.
Earle Doughty donned his SCUBA gear
to look for the body, and as I recall found
it in water so shallow that he had not even
submerged, but was still walking back-ward
in his swim-fins toward water deep enough
to dive in.
Someone called out get the family
away, or something close to that, as I

recall. (My sister Susan Cleary Rittgers, my


other cousin John Troy, as well as Nan
Norton Troy and I were present.)
In the ensuing days many Islanders and
Summer folks expressed their condolences
and support in many ways.
The Island pastor, the Revered Mr. Tanner, called on the Mrs. Troy and the family
at the cottage. After the tragic events were

Island matters that had recently engaged
the ministrations of the clergyman, including the marijuana bust that had just taken
place.
Billy was 10 years old at the time. His
remains were interred in a burial plot at
the Yard, as were his mothers after her
death in 1985. The graves today remain
unmarked.

THE PORTLAND WATERFRONT


BACK WHEN
I was talking with Leon Hamilton before he and Jen left for Florida. A good part of the conversation was about going
to the Portland waterfront decades ago before it became gentrified. I subsequently thought what fun it would be
to have Chebeaguers who remembered that time (and there are quite a few) tell us some stories.
If you would like to contribute a story in our next issue, please let us know.
In this issue we have Mabel and Jackie Doughty writing about going uptown with Sanford in those old days.
We also have Audrey and Sylvia Hamilton, as they were then known, talking about commuting to
Portland and Commercial St. via the Casco Bay boats.

The Portland Waterfront Then and Now


Portland in the Sirius, docking at the float
on the Harborside, and walking through
Sargent and Lord. The people who worked
there were known by their first names,
including Prock the meat cutter in his
white apron. From Sargents we often
stopped at the Anchor Lunch just up the
street, a veritable greasy spoon, often referred to as Ptomaine Tavern by Sanford
and Ellsworth!
oth Jackie and Mabel remember
the many storefronts, especially
the three hardware stores between
Commercial St. and Monument Sq. At
Sulkowitchs you could hand pick screws
and bolts from a wooden bin and weigh
out as many as you needed. Other hardware stores included King and Dexter and
Edwards and Walker. A 4 to 5 story building in Monument Sq. Mabel remembers
that the store faced uptown and occupied
nearly the entire block between Middle St.
and Congress St. (Jane remembers that the
wooden floors creaked very badly.)
Uptown contained two authentic drug
stores called upper and lower H. H. Hayes.
There were also 3 department stores: Porteus, Mithchell and Braun, Rines Brothers and Owen Moore-all within a stones
throw of each other on Congress St.
And, of course, 2 5&10s: Woolworths
and W. T. Grants. We usually had lunch
at the latter, sitting at the counter. There
were also 3 movie theaters in the area.
s I was driving through Portland recently, I was saddened to see not only
a Starbucks, but also a Marriot Hotel in
the waterfront area and the consequent
loss of space for the fishing industry.

he Portland waterfront today


is vastly different from that of
the mid twentieth century, as is
Congress St.
Mabel remembers coming to Chebeague in
the summer of 1940 via one of the wooden
steamboats-perhaps the Maqouit-and
docking at Western Landing. (She came
from a little town near Greenville called
Shirleys Mill). From there she was transported to Camp West Winds-via Bowens
taxi. (Clarence Bowen was the driver)
where she would plan and cook meals for
upwards of 50 camp girls and councilors.
In her early married life she recounts
that most islanders were able to buy the
necessities of life between Commercial
Sloops Log 14

St. and Monument Sq. The area between


Commercial St. and Middle St. did not
become the Old Port until the 1970s.
Jackie and Mabel agree with the historian,
Joseph Conforti, who describes the area as
seedy during the 50s and 60s.
Mabel remembers calling in grocery
orders consisting mostly of canned goods
to the Patrons Cooperative- a large business on the corner of Commercial St.
and the Portland Pier. Meats came from
Sargent and Lords. Sargents and the
Harris Co. served as purveyors of food and
ship chandlers-marine suppliers- both to
large tankers and to fishing families on the
islands.
As a child Jackie remembers trips to

parlors and drug stores. Benoits, Porteous


Mitchells, Rines, Owen Moore, Grants,
Woolworths, Maine Savings Bank, First
National Bank, Canal Bank, the Puritan
and Moustakis restaurants, and Hays and
Liggets Drug Stores. During Christmas time
Congress Street was literally lit up like a
Christmas tree. Streets were always crowded
with shoppers- until the Maine Mall was
developed. For many years, Congress Street
was a neat little city in itself.
he cold winter months commuting
with Casco Bay Lines was not without memorable experiences. Never
will forget the Aucocisco, the Emita, the
Macquoit, the Gurnet, the Sabino and the
Tourist, as well as one engineer, Bill Ricker
Sr., from Chebeague, who shoveled the coal
in the hot engine rooms of some of these unforgettable Steam Boats. My sister, Audrey
commuted while attending Grays Business
School in Portland, alternating with certain
days at the Chebeague Post office while
working for her aunt, Pearl Robinson. One
day her aunt got sick and called for Audreys
help at the office. A bad snowstorm had
developed along the coast with high wind
warnings. Audrey was the only passenger
on the boat that morning and the captain
called for her to come inside the Pilot House
to brave out the storm. By the time the old
Aucocisco reached Peaks Island, the crew
was forced to turn around and head back to
Portland. Obviously, Audrey never made it
to work that day. Years later she worked as
secretary for Honeywell Trucking Co., and
eventually at Massachusetts Mutual Insurance Company in Portland for many years.

Commuting in the Fifties

Sylvia and Joan


ready to commute.

by Sylvia and Audrey Hamilton

In response to Jane Frizzells question to Audrey and me one day on Cousins Island wharf,
couldnt you two write about some of your adventures during your commuting days for the
Sloops Log? Audrey is now in Florida but I had fun reminiscing.

uring winters in the 1950s, commuters heavily relied on Casco Bay


Lines except in an emergency when
Sanford or other fishermen would rush the
patient to the mainland in their fishing boats
where an ambulance would be waiting at the
dock.
Commuting involved an hour and a half
each way. Today, a fifteen minute ride to
Cousins Island is a huge contrast from the
boat trips of sixty-five years ago. People
choosing to live in town, and commute
weekly, depended heavily on the bus and
apartment living.
In the summertime, the Nellie G., owned
and operated by Walter Swett and his sons
Walter Jr. and Paul, ran several trips daily
between the Stone Wharf and Falmouth
Foreside, about a thirty minute ride. Jim
Millinger was a deckhand for years. Their
bus waited at the Foreside Landing and took
the passengers to the Greyhound Bus Terminal that was then located at the corner of
High and State Streets. The terminal served
partly as the Nellie G. waiting room. Here,
one could purchase newspapers, magazines,
timetables, candy, etc. Most everyone, including myself, commuted every day during
summer. Bus fares - I dont remember.
n the 50s the Korean War was top news.
From Chebeague, Dick Calder, Brother

Ross, Billy Tebbetts, (Jane Frizzells brother),


Larry Bennett and Doug Dyer all served.
Cell phones, iphones, tablets, and computers, had yet to be developed. Maine
Mall and WalMart didnt exist, nor did
MacDonalds, Wendys or Burger King.
It was Kentucky Fried Chicken, the movies,
the radio, bowling, and a casual drive-in,
that kept us from boredom. We dined out
usually the day after receiving our paycheck.
Every Sunday before leaving home we
checked the newspaper to see what was
playing at the theaters
(State, Strand, Civic or
Empire). These were the
golden years for Metro
Golden Mayer, Twentieth
Century Fox and Paramount we didnt miss many movies.
Monday nights, after work, we
did our weekly grocery shopping
at Shaws on upper Congress
Street. At the top of our list was
always Crown Pilot crackers. Sure
do miss em!
any of us today remember
when Congress Street was
everybodys Maine Mall - alive
with department stores, banks,
restaurants, five & tens, ice cream

CHEBEAGUE NEWS ITEMS FROM THE

SixTownTimes
one hundred and twenty years ago-1894
by Susie Stavropoulos

during my employment in Portland for the


New England Telephone Co., an incident
that I vividly remember is one afternoon
after Audrey and I returned from Chebeague
to our apartment on Oak St., only to find
that the lock on our door had been tampered
with. That night, after moving a bureau tight
against the door, my sister slept soundly, but
I, a more timid soul, sat bolt upright in bed
all night long - awake! The lock got fixed
the next day but we never learned who the
culprit was.
any years and fun times have
passed since way back then. To
remember other Chebeaguers who
lived and worked in Portland during this
time is a must. They were my schoolmates
and friends; Chebeague High School graduates who were very much a part of
our lives.
Dianne Calder worked for Roberts
Supply Co. and lived next door, on the
same floor. Roberta White worked at
Melinas Hair Salon. Connie Stilphen
Fowler, who roomed with Audrey and
me for two years while working for Central Maine Power Co. What fun times!
My classmate, Anne KomLosy Thurlow, who worked a long time for Union
Mtual Insurance Co. and my classmate,
Louise Rich Todd and her sister, Minie
Rich MacNeill both employed at Paper Box Co., well always remember.
Not to forget Joan Robinson. Even though
graduating from Morse High School in Bath,
she worked in Portland for Central Maine
Power Co. and lived with her grandmother
on Grant Street until she married Bud
Robinson-from Chebeague. Always one of
the crowd, Joan stems from many Bennetts
who were born on Chebeague.
y brother, Theron Hamilton and
cousin, Bud Bennett, later rented the
same apartment where Audrey and I had
previously lived. Theron was employed by
Portland Pipe Line, and Bud, (Suzanne Bennett Jacksons brother), by the New England
Telephone Co. Theron and Bud were not
as lucky. On the 30 of January 1956, the
Oakview apartment caught fire. Theron ran
down the fire escape. He was very lucky to
get out but lost everything, including his
navy discharge lapel pin that he valued. Bud
lost everything although he had just recently
moved in. Audrey lost a jar full of pennies
and I lost a Motorola portable radio, among
other things. Apparently, the fire was caused
by a man in the apartment below who fell
asleep in an overstuffed chair while smoking.
Over all, these were some of the most
memorable years of my early life.

The year 1894 seems to have been quite a busy one for upgrading homes. To wit:
Mr. Allan Duff, the carpenter, has completed the house of Mr. Clinton J. Hamilton on the
outside. We think it is one of the prettiest on the island.

Thanksgiving
without a
microwave!

Later, the paper recorded the following


unfortunate event:
The most severe thunder shower wi
nessed for many years passed over this place
the 18th inst., doing considerable damage.
The summer residence of Capt. John F.
Hamilton of Portland, who is spending the
summer here with his family, was struck
with no slight damage. The lightning struck
the chimney throwing off many bricks and
passed on to the roof, where, it badly shattered that part, and so on to the lower floor,
where it did the most damage.
Improvements sometimes prove risky,
say we.
Thanksgiving Day (1894) was observed
with the usual festivities and home gatherings, and the hearts of many were cheered
by the presence of the children and
friends, and all enjoyed the glad tidings
of the day.

Vanished
Chebeague
Names
by Jane Frizzell

n the last issue Martha O. Hamilton wrote an article


about names that used to be very evident in Chebeague
history, but have now disappeared except on many
cemetery headstones. She wrote of the Bennetts. In this
issue Id like to bring another family to the attention of
our readers. That family is the Curits, of which I am a
descendant. Many of you probably remember some Curit names
such as Barton, Howard, Walter, or Lizzie, who was a Curit by
marriage. There is currently a road on the island named Curit
Farm Road. I have fond memories of visiting this farm, owned
by Howard and Cora Hamilton Curit to buy vegetables and to
see Howards horse, Prince (I think). It was such a wonderful,
peaceful setting down under the hill-complete with pond.
THE CURIT FAMILY
The siblings Elizabeth and John Curit were the first of that
name to come to the island. This sister and brother were born
in the 1770s in Maine, but the family story says that the family
came originally from Guadeloupe. Elizabeth married Ambrose

Sloops Log 18

and Deborah Soule Hamiltons son, Jonathan, and John married


their daughter, Jane. As a consequence, all Curits are Hamiltons
and many Hamiltons are Curits. (It is OK if this seems more
than you wanted to know.)
lizabeth and Johns children married islanders with the following familiar Chebeague names: Doughty, Hutchinson,
Ross, and Webber. John and Janes children married into another large Chebeague family: the Littlefields. From there it gets
very complicated, as at that time people had quite large families.
I can think of many on Chebeague who are descendants, but
you will have to accept my apologies for not coming up with a
complete list.
ane (Jennie) Hamilton Curit lived to be 100 years 10
months and 8 days old and her husband John Curit lived
to be 96. Please see the accompanying photos of the obelisk
in the cemetery.

Mystery Photo~Fall 2014

everal people identified the Spring 2014


Mystery Photo as the
John Hamilton Uncle Jack
House. Others identified it
as the Gwillim House. All
were correct!
The house was built for
Uncle Jack and his wife, Mary
Polly Henley Hamilton in
the late 1850s. Because there
were something like eleven
John Hamiltons and fourteen
Mary Hamiltons living on
Chebeague during the nineteenth century, they all had
nicknames! The son of James
and Mary Webber Hamilton,
he was officially known as
John Hamilton 2nd to differentiate him from his uncle
who was known as Deacon
John Hamilton. During the
nineteenth and much of the
twentieth centuries the term
uncle denoted endearment
and respect as well relationship. A person who was not
liked or respected was known
as old man surname or old
lady surname.
ncle Jacks original
house sat across the road
- somewhere between Graves
and Martindales. The new
Greek revival house was a
case of John keeping up with
the next generation of Hamiltons! He was one of the early
stone sloopers who blasted
the shores of Casco Bay and
helped build the Portland waterfront.
He invested his money in sloops and
bought an interest in Sam Ross store on
the Stone Wharf. While he didnt work
in the store, his money allowed his son,
James Munroe Hamilton to create a salt
bait business that employed Chebeaguers
for nearly half a century. He showed his
entrepreneurial skills by selling stock in
a fish oil factory, known as the Hamilton
Oil Works. The company processed the
racks of pogies, after the slivers had
been cut off, salted and sold. The gurry
that remained after the oil had been process was spread on the fields for fertilizer.
Uncle Jack owned about 24 acres that
Sloops Log 19

Photo-CIHS Collection

ran from the stone wall by Martindales


across the island to the Back Shore and
included all of the East End Point. Despite his business success, John Hamilton
2nd always considered himself a farmer.
He raised sheep and summered them on
his share of Bangs Island and planted
one of the islands first orchards of which
some of the trees still survive.
fter his death his son, John Flatfoot Hamilton, master and principal owner of the M.M. Hamilton, the largest of the Chebeague Stone
Fleet, bought the house and farm from his
siblings. Hamilton had moved to Portland
but continued to spend nearly half of the
year on Chebeague. He hired a Swedish

farmer, named David Petersen, to operate


the farm. The mystery photo, which was
taken by a stereopticon photographer in
1881-82, shows woman who is thought
to be Mercy Melissa Henley Hamilton,
John F. Hamiltons wife. It is assumed that
Hamilton is holding the reins of the horse
and Petersen is in the doorway. The man
with the silk hat, cane and white beard is
a mystery.
ohn F. Hamilton sold the farm to
Merriam Horne Realty and the house
became the Bellevue Boarding House, the
barn became the Bowling Alley and the
farmland became cottage lots. The Bowling Alley burned in January 1915 and the
Gwillim family bought the house c. 1917.
