Biography

Thomas was born in 1754. He passed away in 1835. He was the son of Simeon and Mary (Allen) Wing. Thomas married, first, Lydia, a daughter of Zechariah Perry of Sandwich. She died in Livermore, Maine, and he then married Meribah Bowman. His father had a large interest in the timbered lands, and the coasting trade of the Province of Maine, and he therefore was engaged from the age of seventeen to twenty-five as the master of a vessel. When the continental army was in need of recruits, he was drafted, but his father being unwilling to lose his services, allowed his younger brother, Aaron, then a lad of sixteen, to take his place in the ranks. After peace was declared, Thomas settled in Wayne, Maine, bought a large tract of land and built a mill at the outlet of Wing's Pond, for himself and his brother Aaron. Later, he sold his property in Wayne, and settled in Livermore, Androscoggin County, Maine, where he engaged in the work of building and operating mills and machinery, and in the construction of roads and bridges. After the death of his first wife, he removed to Fairfield, Somerset County, and assisted his son Abisha in the work of building and operating his mills and machinery. Here he became an active member of the Society of Friends, and married his second wife. Still later he removed to Mount Vernon, Kennebec County, where is son, Calvin, in company with his cousins, Greenlief and Silas B., sons of Aaron Wing, was engaged in the manufacture of lumber, meal, and flour, and in carding and cloth-dressing. There, in advanced age, he died, in Oct 1835. His wife also died in the same place. Names of his children: Abisha, Lucy, Silas Perry, Sophia, Warren Perry, Allen, Calvin. [1]
