Comments:

Family located: Otisfield ME
Occupation: Farmer

Eunice Gammon (sister of Mary Gammon) was a descendant of Joseph Gammon, (Joseph 1st., David 2nd., Eunice 3rd.), who, when very young came with his brother, Philip, from England to America. They first settled at Cape Elizabeth, Me., but later (1757) moved to Gorham, Me., where he held for several years the office of constable and tax collector.

David Gammon served in the Revolution in Capt. Samuel Whitmore's Co., 3rd, Cumberland County Regt. of Militia under command of col. Reuben Fogg of Scarborough, Me. This company with that of Capt. Benjamin Larrabee started to march to Peekskill, N. Y., Dec. 25, 1777. They were allowed a penny for each mile traveled, receiving for three hundred and ninety-two miles the sum of one pound, twelve shillings, and eight pence.

Samuel, a brother of David also a soldier in the Revolution, signed with David Ray, Benjamin Patch, Joseph Hancock, and a Jonathan Moors an application to the Proprietors of Otisfield Plantation for the warrant of the first meeting in that plantation. This meeting was held Apr. 23, 1787, at which time not more than thirty families had settled in the plantation.
