Benjamin Meritiiew settled upon a lot of land on the south part of the island, between Duck and Head Harbors.

His first wife was Miss Frances Atwood, by whom he had three sons : Mr. Reuben Merithew, who removed to Isles- borough ; Benjamin, who removed to Searsport ; and Francis, the adopted son of Mr. Daniel Gilbert, who, as has been stated in the notice of him, was drowned.

The second wife of Mr. Merithew was a Miss Sarah Coombs, of Vinal Haven , by whom he had a family. At this time one only of the family resides here — the wife of Mr. Stinson Matthews. Mr. Merithew was a son of Mr. Roger Merithew, who many years ago resided upon, and owned, what is now known as Babbidge's Island in the town of North Haven. Both he and his wife are now dead.
