Biography of Abraham Page
Farmington Franklin County, Maine Biographies





ABRAHAM PAGE was the first settler on front lot No. 29, west side, now owned by Melville P. Tufts and others. He was regarded as an industrious workman and capable of performing a vast amount of labor. No man in the region could use an axe or scythe to better advantage, and the highest wages were always paid him. He had, however, no faculty for working for himself, alleging that he was such a poor paymaster. Mr. Page's last years were spent in Industry. He married, in 1797, Mary Robbins, and had five children, born in Farmington : Bethiah, born April 23, 1798; Abigail, born March 26, 1800; Lydia, born March 4, 1802; Isaac, born May 5, 1805; Abraham, born Feb. 23, 1806.
