[p. 189]
abandoned to the enemy. Mr. Weymouth belonged to the retreating army. His term of enlistment having expired, he was compelled to return home, a distance of two hundred miles through an unbroken wilderness, destitute of money or clothing. In 1779 he shipped on board the constitutional frigate "Ranger," mounting 18 guns, then lying at Portsmouth, N. H., commanded by Thos. Simpson. They sailed from Boston in June, and after a successful voyage she was captured off Charleston, S. C., and her men made prisoners. Mr. Weymouth, with others, was confined for a long time in a loathsome prison ship lying off N. Y. harbor, where he was kept until 1783. He then settled in Cornish, N. H., where he was chosen Military Captain. In 1800 he removed to Belfast, at Little River, and in 1803 he settled in this town and lived here about 50 years.

He was a member of the Convention that formed the Convention that formed the Constitution of this state in 1821, and was literally a pioneer in the wilderness, the county at that time being without roads or other improvements. By his untiring industry he contributed largely towards bringing it into a state of cultivation, and introducing domestic comforts which distinguish the people of New England. His labors secured to him a competency, and rendered his pecuniary circumstances independent.
