    • Henry Goldsmith was the only settler in this immediate neighborhood in the 1790s, although Indians are said to have still frequented the area. After his mill burned down around 1795, Goldsmith left for Nova Scotia, and there do not appear to be any inhabitants for nearly a decade. Samuel Connick is said to have built a mill on the Jones Lot around 1802 or 1803 using the Waweig for power. There was a saw mill on Goldsmith Stream by 1812 and a tannery by 1823.

      It is dificult to say if Edward Ross, who was granted Lot 76 adjcaent to the Jones Lot, lived in Waweig or remained on his lot in St Andrews. But it does appear he was there. He is dead by 1817 when his widow sold the lot to their grandson. The land appears to be vacant for a long time afterward, and the owners of it difficult to trace.

      Michael Ryan, who was granted Lot 75, may have also lived in the area when Samuel Johnson first lived there. There may be some confusion in early deeds, one of which indicate that Ryan was granted Lot 74. So it may be possible that Ryan owned both 74 and 75, further suggesting that he lived on one of the lots. Ryan died before 1807, when his son John and wife peitioned for land at Pleasant Ridge. In June of 1821 his heirs sold his town lot. His farm lot may have been owned by Thomas Wyer as early as 1822, of Wyer may have owned Lot 76, the Ross lot, depending on how you read the deeds. The 1822 deed of Ryan's heirs disposing of his farm lot, there called Farm Lot 74, said that Thomas Wyer Jr owned the lot to the north. If the deed did refer to Lot 74, then Wyer owned Lot 75, the lot granted to Ryan. If there was an error, and the deed should refer to Lot 75, Wyer owned Lot 76, the Ross Lot. Whatever the case, it appears that Ryan's son John Ryan was living on one of the lot, as he was assessed for taxes on land he occupied in the rural district of St Andrews in 1831. His widow Jane was living in Saint Patrick by 1851. I have not been able to trace the land in this period.

      Downstream from Samuel Johnson, John Simpson bought Matthew Lymburner's grant in 1800 and apparently settled there around that time. The Simpsons lived there continually through most of the century.

      The northen part of Waweig wasn't granted until the 1820s and 1830s and probably wasn't settled until then or soon before. The same goes for lots east of these Penobscot farm lots.

      Closer to St Andrews, the next "settlement" was in Upper Bayside. Most were Loyalists, like the Bradfords, the Carlows and the Russells. The Carlows were from Pownalborough and later Balltown, and the Bradfords were from Bristol. It is interesting to note that Jacob Carlow and his son Martin were included in Rebel militia lists in Pownalborough in 1777. John Carlow came to New Brunswick with the Penobscot Loyalists, and Martin came shortly after. They were both granted land as loyal subjects. However, they returned to Maine before 1800. Martin returned to St Andrews before 1805. Perhaps he and Samuel traveled together.

      The Lower Bayside lots were the last of the Penobscot Association lots before St Andrews. There you found the Penobscot Loyalist Rigbys, Greenlaws, Cooksons, Eastmans, McCurdys and Grants. Nicholas Johnson claimed to have come to New Brunswick with the Loyalists but didn't appear in any records until 1789. He bought land in Lower Bayside in 1807 where he and his family lived. The Cooksons came from Balltown.
    • It is probably no coincidence that Samuel Johnson settled near Goldsmith's defunct mill and Connick's Mills. His farm in Whitefield was adjacent to the mills first built by the Gliddens. The Coopers later operated mills on the site and that part of Whitfield is still called Coopers Mills. These Coopers were the cousins of Leonard Bartlett, as his mother was a Cooper.

      May it please Your Excellency

      Acting in obedience to the duties required as Commissioner to explore the line of Road between the Baptist Meeting HOuse situate on the Redericton Road in the Parish of Saint Andrews, in the County of Charlotte, and Samuel Johnson's, I beg leave to submit the following Report:-Commencing at the Meeting House, I would recommence following the present old Road to a Bridge onf M'Donnall's north line, as distance of 169 rods; thence continuing on a straight line, viz, north 26 west by Magnet 221 rods to Curry's Hill, pursuing a north easterly course 104 rods, in order to favour the descent said Hill to the Lake Road; thenceon a direct line N 3 W, in order to avoid Bradford's Hill and a circuitous route, a distance of 252 rods, or until it strikes the present old Roadl thence in order to favor the descent of Simpson's Hll, to cross the present Road on the same course and follow a north easterly direction, the natural course of a gully, 116 rods, across the present Road easterly in rear of Simpson's house until it strikes the present Road again a distance of 84 rods; thence following the olf Road 39 rods, on leaving the old Road on the same course 72 rods across George Simpson's field t avoid a bend and bad hill on the present Road; thence crossing the present Road on a course north eaterly a distance of one and a quarter miles to arrive at S Johnson's.

      This route would avoid many difficulties and shorten the distance on the old line, and I feel confident would unite public and individual interests to an extent beyond any other route, and is therefore after careful examination of the three several routes proposed, recommended.

    Cooper (Infirm) 
    • Richard Smy practiced cooperage in New York City before coming to New Brunswick. He was granted Lot 1 Block M Bulkley's Division in St Andrews, on the northeast corner of Adolphus and Carleton streets. He did not sell this lot until 1819, 5 years before his death. Was this where his cooperage was located? Smy bought two other town lots, one in 1786 and another in 1804. Was his place of business on either of these spots?

      Both of his sons Richard and Thomas learned the trade as well. Thomas died between the 1845 assessment and the 1851 census. Richard Junior lived until 1856. In the 1851 census the only other cooper in the parish of St Andrews was Samuel Johnson.

      Did Samuel Johnson work for the Smys? Perhaps while other farmers went into the woods to lumber in the winter, Samuel went to Town to work in Smy's cooperage.

      There is a tangible link between Samuel Johnson and Richard Smy. Richard Smy and Mary Greenlaw had a son Richard born in 1828. Mary Greenlaw was one of the sisters of Joanna Greenlaw, Samuel Johnson's last wife.

    • Charles Eaton was the only cooper in Wiscasset in 1850. He was born in Limerick, York, ME, son of William Cooper and Mehitable Joss. The Eatons were a family of Coopers as William and Irvin also followed the trade. William was from Candia, Rockingham, NH.

      Gorham Whiteney was a cooper who came to Newcastle in the 1840s. He also came from a family of coopers. His father Reueben was a millwright. His brothers Simeon, Levi, Otis and Abel were all coopers. Reuben was said to have been born in Gorham, but the family was ultimately from York.

      Sewall Meservey was the only cooper in Whitefield or Jefferson in 1850. He followed the trade through at least 1860, but it doesn't seem to be a family business.

      If Samuel's father also practiced coopering, then had may have worked for Robert Barker, Peter Dow or Samuel Waters. Barker came from Nantucket in 1772 and settled on Swan Island, an island in the Kennebec River which was part of Pownalborough. He lived there until his death in 1779, and his family returned to Nantucket. His probate records indicated that he worked as a cooper. It is unclear if his sons followed the trade.

      Peter Dow was a cooper who came from Plaistow, Rockingham, New Hampshire, in the early 1760s. He lived in Pownalborough as late as 1766 and came to Balltown probably shortly before 1777. He seems to have lived in Jefferson proper quite a distance from the Johnsons.

      A more likely coopering associate might have been Samuel Waters. He was born in England and settled in Newcastle about 1765. He was still in Newcastle as late as 1788 when he married Ruth Hilton widow of Enoch Averill. He lived at the head of Dyer's Neck, downstream from the lot Samuel Sr owned. Waters removed to Balltown by 1790 and took up on the Averill estate, which was at the north end of Dyer Pond. This is just over the Jefferson line only about 3 miles from where Samuel Sr lived.
    • John Bamford and Martin Carlow came from Balltown very nearly the same time as Samuel Johnson. John Bamford's wife was Mary Averill, daughter of Enoch Averill and Ruth Hilton. Enoch died at a fairly young age, leaving his wife with many young children. In 1788, widow Ruth remarried to Samuel Waters who had recently lost his second wife, and also had several small children. Waters hadd come from England and settled in Newcastle before 1765. He eventually moved into the wilderness of Balltown, like many others from the coastal towns of that era. Waters was a cooper by trade. Did Samuel Jr learn his trade from Water? Was Samuel's father also a cooper?

    • Soon after the original Grant in 1784, there were 21 families living in St Andrews between the Waweig River and Town. In 1804 when Samuel Johnson bought lots in Waweig, there were 16 families there. Of those, only 8 were original grantees. So out of 46 farm lots granted in St Andrews, fewer than half were settled by the grantee. A little more than a third of these were still there 20 years later.

      These 16 families had quite a bit in common. Fourteen of them were Loyalists, arriving in 1783. (The Connicks were in Charlotte County before 1783. The Simpsons arrived around 1800.) Thirteen of the Loyalist families came from Fort George at Penobscot in Maine. Three families had lived relatively cloe to each other before seeking refuge in the Fort at Penobscot.

      The Bradfords, the Carlows, and the Cooksons all lived in Lincoln County, Maine, before going to Penobscot. Benjamin Bradford was born in Massachusetts, but his family had moved to Friendship/Meduncook, Maine. Jacob Carlow had come to Pownalborough by 1766, perhaps from Germany. His sons Martin and John were the Loyalists who settled in New Brunswick. William Cookson was born in England, and came to Maine about 1774, settling soon at Balltown, and marrying Elizabeth Turner. (Cookson's wife's brother James Turner settled a Bocabec. His wife's sister Margaret Turner married Martin Carlow.)

      The two Carlow sons John and Martin were granted 100-acre lots in St Stephen in 1784, in the same grant that doled out the rest of the Penobscot lands. However, they both sold those lots and returned to Maine, Martin returning before 1790 and John before 1800. Their father was dead by 1800, and their sisters removed from Pownalborough. Both Martin and John returned to New Brunswick. This time John went to St John and settled there. Martin went to Bayside, probably about 1804.

      The Carlows, the Cooksons, and the Turners were connected by their adventures during the Revolution as well. The Rev Jacob Bailey, in his journal, writes "Thomas Turner, James Turner, Cookson, their brother in law, and John and Martin Carlo, two brothers, set out on foot, with a design of travelling by land to Halifax, in Nova Scotia."

      Marriage in New Brunswick Laws Act

      https://familysearch.org/learn/wiki/en/New_Brunswick_Church_Records
      1791 marriage act New Brunswick

      http://webhome.idirect.com/~cpwalsh/nb/vitalstats.htm
      The marriage act of 1791 authorized five types of officials to perform marriages:

      1. Church of England clergy (all cases).
      2. Justices of the Peace (if no Church of England clergy were available).
      3. Church of Scotland clergy (if both parties to the marriage were members of the Church of Scotland).
      4. Roman Catholic clergy (if both parties were Catholic).
      5. Quaker officials (if both parties were Quaker).

      http://genealogyfirst.ca/resources/primary-sources/parish/marriage
      In 1791 the first New Brunswick act to regulate marriage and divorce was passed. An Anglican, Roman Catholic, Presbyterian or Quaker clergyman could marry a man and woman over the age of 21, or with parental consent if younger, after banns were published in the parish for three consecutive weeks. In cases where the banns were not published or if the clergyman did not know both parties involved, a marriage license and bond was required. When the marriage legislation was amended in 1834, Baptist and Methodist clergy received the right to perform marriages.

      http://www.familyhistoryalive.com/New-Brunswick-Vital-Records--Births-Marriages-Deaths.html
      In 1812, a new Act seeking to improve marriage registration was passed. In addition to requiring all clergymen performing marriages (except for Quakers), as well as the Justices of the Peace, to send certificates of marriage to the county Clerk of the Peace, it set out detailed requirements with respect to the contents of the marriage certificates and the format of the County Marriage Register.

      Why didn't Samuel or his sons petition for land? One of the requirements for a grant was to be a British subject. Samuel was certainly not. In fact there is not even any record of him taking the oath after settling in New Brunswick soon before the War of 1812. George may not have been New Brunswick born after all, if he was indeed the son of Samuel Johnson and Mary Glidden counted in the 1800 census. Furthermore, Samuel provided George and Leonard each with part of his land in Waweig, so they would not need to petition for land.

      What kind of influence did Leonard Bartlett have? He was certainly an employer in the Waweig area, and clearly a respected man. The name Leonard is rather rare in Charlotte County. So that Samuel Johnson, James Connick, Isaac Greenlaw and William Higgins all named sons Leonard, suggests to me that these sons were named in honor of Leonard Bartlett. Samuel Johnson was a cooper, a profession connected with the sawmilling the Bartletts undertook. Connick, Greenlaw and Higgins both lived in Waweig, and clearly in the part called Bartlett's Mills today. They likely worked for Bartlett too, either sawing or lumbering.
    • Samuel Johnson from Whitefield is Samuel Johnson of Waweig.

      1. Direct evidence
      Autosomal DNA evidence indicates that descendants of Samuel & Sarah Johnson and John Cain & Jane Johnson share common ancestors. Jane, born in China, is likely the daughter of David Johnson and Mary Evans.

      2. Circumstantial evidence
      Numerous others from Balltown and Lincoln County, Maine:
      James Stinson m Margaret Stewart (whose daughter married Jonathan Greenlaw) were Loyalists from Georgetown, Lincoln/Sagadahoc, ME.
      John Bamford m Mary Averill Balltown to St David c 1800.
      Mary Woodbridge Ayer m Ebenezer Smith Balltown to St David 1803.
      Michael Reid m Catherine Ludwig Waldoboro to St David 1804.
      Leavitt Vining Balltown to St George 1805.
      Jacob Martin Carlow also lived in St Andrews. He and siblings were born in Balltown in the 1790s. His father Martin Carlow was a Loyalist granted land in Upper Mills. Returned to Maine by 1790. In Lubec in 1820. Children in St Andrews by 1805.
      Caleb Bartlett Balltown to St Andrews 1806.
      James Hall Nobleboro to St George 1809.
      David Leighton Newcastle to St David 1809.
      David Peaslee Whitefield to St George 1809
      Israel Glidden Patricktown to Charlotte County 1809. Son of Benjamin Glidden who is the brother of Mary Glidden m Samuel Johnson
      Charles Glidden sa distant Glidden relative lived in Charlotte County for a while. Andrew Glidden is another brother of Mary Glidden.
      John Leeman Wiscasset to St Stephen and West Isles 1811
      Was Ann Danford related to the Danfords of Wiscasset? Paul Danford of Calais was probably her father.
      Jeremiah Dow Whitefield to St Andrews after 1822.

      Samuel Johnson married Mary Glidden as a baptist. Samuel Johnson married Joanna Greenlaw as a Baptist.

      Grandpa Oscar Johnson claimed his great-great grandmother was a Mic-Maq Indian Princess. As it happens, if Samuel Johnson was the son of Samuel Johnson and Lydia Remick, Lydia Remick Johnson would be his great-great grandmother. Lydia Remick was only one of two Remicks to be found in 18th Century Lincoln County, Maine. They other was William Remick who has been supposed to be Indian. It is the most tenuous of connections, but it is possible that Lydia was related to William and they were both Indian.

      The Bartlet family settled on the lots adjacent to Samuel in Waweig. They built a sawmill and grist mill there. Caleb Bartlett Jr was a witness in a deed for land in Balltown sold by Samuel Johnson Sr.

      Thomas Evans, brother of Joseph Evans who married Mary Jane Johnson, was a cooper, according to the 1860 census. It is supposed that Mary Jane Johnson was a daughter of Samuel Johnson and Lydia Remick.

      3. Consistency
      Both Samuel Johnsons were born in Maine around 1775.
      Samuel Johnson of Whitefield had a son born before 1800. Samuel Johnson of Waweig's son George was born about 1799.
      The last record of Samuel Johnson in Whitefield was in 1801. The first record of Samuel Johnson in New Brunswick is 1804.

      Year Rate
      1801 $4.38

      $100 selling land in Balltown 1801
      30 pounds buying land in St Andrews 1804
      $100 would be about 23 pounds. So it is possible that Samuel Johnson had a considerable amount of money in his pocket when he arrived in New Brunswick, considerable enough to nearly purchase the 200 acres in Waweig from Ebenezer Greenlaw.
