Squire, Justice of the Peace. Served in the Maine Legislature 1831-1832. Son of Major Peletiah & Mary Grindle Leach.

Ebenezer Leach bought the west half of lots 85 and 86, the Thomas Binney Farm, from his father in 1812 for the sum of $1,000. The farm consisted of 130 acres. Twenty five acres was sold to Jeremiah Wardwell in 1825. This small farm of 25 acres was sold to Wilbury Hutchins in 1839. This farm sat across the road from Berzinis' Garage. John Leach, Ebenezer's brother, bought the east half of the farm in 1808 for $1,000. This farm ended at the small creek which runs into the Bay near Hutchins Point.

The homestead sat, roughly, where the blue modular home sits behind Bim Snow's Garage. If this home was the original Thomas Binney home, it could have been built before the Revolution. If not, then the home was built sometime between 1812 and 1816. The homestead burned before 1930.

Ebenezer left an estate of $3,182. 65, $2,030 of which was the value of his land holdings. The homestead farm of 100 acres was worth $1,800. He owned 40 acres at the head of Winslow's Pond, worth $200, 20 acres of the Ministerial Lot, worth $25, and 5 acres of the School Lot, worth $5.

Total value of $538.50. The remaining estate consisted of Notes of Hand, farm machinery, house hold furnishings, and miscellaneous items.

Farm Machinery: 1 waggon + harness, 1 plow, 1 harrow, 3 hay forks, chaines, 1 hoe, 2 yokes + cows rings, 2 ox sleds, 2 sythes + sneathes, 2 axes, and 1 sleigh.
