Daniel Bucknam, Jr. of Sutton, bought of Mr. Shep-
ard, in the spring of 1778, three hundred acres of land,
for Â£500., being lots i in the 3d and i in the 4th range in
the second division, as shown on the plan, although the
survey of Mr. Davis, locates most of his land in Minot.
He was Captain of an Artillery company at the opening
of the war, but had probably resigned before buying the
Shepardsfield land. The price paid for the property was
probably based on the value of the depreciated currency of
the colonies. Capt. Bucknam was born in 1722 and died in
1809. His first wife was Phebe, dau. of Thomas Gould of
Sutton, by whom he had 16 children, of these, two only
were living when he came to Maine. He was a large mus-
cular man of almost superhuman strength and a lively sense
of humor. His two eldest ohildren were robust and fearless
girls, much of their time doing mens work, asskting their
