The earliest settlers of Eastport were principally fishermen from Lynn, Marblehead, Cape Ann, Newburyport, Portsmouth and its vicinity, who located themselves on Moose Island for their greater convenience in taking and curing fish, about the close of the Revolutionary War. Of the settlers prior to the year 1790, very few remain, and they are tottering under the weight of years. It is worthy of remark, that, almost without exception, they attained to a great age, most of them beyond three-score and ten, and several more than fourscore. Mr. Shackford and Mr. Tuttle came here in the fall of 1783, when there were but five families on the island, and, it is believed, still fewer at Lubec. In 1790, there were about twenty-one or twenty-two families on the island; and all the settlers up to that period, and even later, were citizens of the United States, with one or two exceptions.
