Source:The history of Gorham , Maine, p. 468:

Jeremiah and Samuel Deering were brothers. They came from Blue Point, probably about the year 1790, and cleared up the farm on which Jeremiah's grandson Charles W. Deering now resides. The first night of their occupancy they hung their beds from the trees and kept a fire burning all night to frighten away the wolves. The brothers built a saw mill and carried lumber to Blue Point to build vessels there and brought from that place hay for their cattle. At this time the only road out to Buxton was a path marked by "spotted" trees.

Samuel Deering lived for a time with his brother Jeremiah. At length, however, the brothers divided the farm, and Samuel went to the place where his son James has since lived.
