*A few who are not native, but who came into the town with their parents when small children, some of them being infants, and were educated there as teachers, are included in the list. They are indicated by a star (*) annexed to their names. An effort has been made to make the list correct, and in most cases, the names of the teachers belonging to the different families have been submitted to some member of each family for correction. Some of the native teachers have probably been omitted, especially of those who taught in the early years of the town, but all who could be found have been included. The maiden names of female teachers who have been married have been given, on the supposition that they would be better known by those names. The town has produced an average number of about five teachers annually since its organization. I am indebted to Dominicus Ricker, Joseph Parsons, Elisha S. Wadleigh, Luther Neal, Lorenzo Moulton, Silas Cartland, John W. Piper, Sherman E. Piper, Hugh B. Lougee, Ann Marston and others, for the valuable assistance they have rendered me in preparing this list.—Horace Piper.
