      Charles Glidden moved from Damariscotta in 1772 and took up the land bounded on the south by the road leading from Jefferson to Cooper's Mills, on the west by the Sheepscot river, on the north by the present town of Somerville, and on the east by Travel Pond. At the time of settlement he was six miles from any public road. He had two sons, Charles and William. William built the saw and grist mill at Cooper's Mills.
    • A History of Whitefield Maine by Rundlette Kensell Palmer
      p 211
      Coopersmills was on one of the maine highways of the state, Route 17, which had many local roads coming into or close to the junction and therefore passengers and produce were more numerous than at some of the other stops.

      Here also, the village had lumber, grist, barrel and cider mills on the Sheepscott and there was produce to shop to Albion to the North as well as Wiscasset to the south.
