"Chapter 3:  First Settlers...

"Uncle Jeremiah

"'Uncle' Jeremiah Titcomb, a sailor and a pensioner of the war of 1812, came from the town of Gray at about the time that James Young arrived from Cornville, and later married a daughter of Mr. Young, named Annie.   Mr. Titcomb had a jovial disposition and abounded in stories about his experiences upon the ocean.  He was of the Adventist doctrine in religion and in 1843 was one of the those who settled their business and disposed of property preparatory to the 'end of the world.'  He settled on Titcomb's hill, the last farm in Corinna, toward the east.  He was by trade a stonecutter, and built, among others, the cellar of the old Corinna House.

"He was a great favorite with the young people who were always amused to hear 'Uncle Jerry' give his testimony in meetings and compare himself to 'an old ship,' concluding with his hopes as to the 'old ship's reaching port,' all of which was delivered with twinkling eyes and a broad smile.  

"He was also fond of telling the fortunes of the young people by examining the 'bumps on their heads.'

"In his day it was customary for the relatives of the deceased at a funeral to treat the bearers to a generous draught of rum.  He must have been possessed of more than ordinary strength for it was no uncommon thing for Mr. Titcomb to walk to the mill at the village, a distance of about four miles, with a half bushel of wheat on his back, have the wheat ground, return home with it, and then do a full day's work."
