Amaseconti (abundance of small fish [herring]). A small division of the Abnaki formerly residing in part at Farmington falls, on Sandy r. , Franklin co., Me., and partly near the present New Sharon, a few miles distant. They took part with the other Abnaki in the early Indian wars against the English and joined in the treaty made at Portsmouth, N. H., in 1713. Some of them lingered in their old homes until about 1797, when the last family removed to St Francis, lower Canada, where they retained their distinctive name until 1809. (J. M.)
