Daniel Mills, one of the early settlers, came from New Hampshire and settled in the western part of the town. Here he resided several years, then moved further down the river, where he resided until his death, aged eightyone years. Of his family of seven children, five settled in the town. Daniel, his third son, born in 1779, came here with him, and died in 1855, leaving a family of six children, three of whom settled here. Daniel’s second son, John C., born in 1818, has always resided in the town, with the exception of two years spent in the late war. He has four children.
