1780: “As late as 1780 there are said to have been as many as 500 Indians [Anasagunticooks] living close to the site of Arockemacook [Canton Point].” (source: Starbird, Charles M. 1928. The Indians of the Androscoggin Valley, page 37.)

1800: In 1800, Jay included what is now Canton, and Jay was part of Kennebec County because Franklin County had not been formed.
