Dummer Sewall1

M, b. 7 January 1761, d. 11 February 1846
     Dummer Sewall was born on 7 January 1761 in York, Maine.2,3,4 He was the son of Colonel Dummer Sewall and Mary Dunning.1 Dummer Sewall married Jenny Dunning, daughter of Deacon Andrew Dunning and Hannah Shepherd, on 24 October 1782 in Harpswell, Maine.2,3 Dummer Sewall died on 11 February 1846 in Chesterville, Franklin County, Maine, at the age of 85.3,5 He was buried in Chesterville Center Cemetery, Chesterville, Franklin County, Maine.6
"On the 23d day of March, 1783, after a toilsome journey of six days, with ox teams from Bath, Dummer Sewall, son of Col. Dummer Sewall of Bath, arrived with his family, and commenced a residence on the farm lately occupied by his son, Otis C. Sewall. He had previously made a clearing and put up a camp, in which he and Mr. Linscott, with their families, took up their abode. Here they lived together for some time, or till Mr. Linscott had prepared a rough dwelling.
Some time in 1783 Mr. Sewall constructed a sleigh, the first made in the town, and probably the first in Franklin County. If now in existence it would be esteemed a great curiosity. The bottom was framed like others of that day, but with little if any iron work on it. The sides, forepart, and back of the top were of birch bark, doubled to make it more firm, and to show the same side of the bark outside and in. He and his wife and child rode in it to Bath, and returned again in it. Their visit to Bath was about ten months after their location in their wilderness home. Mrs. Wheeler, who informed the writer of this incident, had tested the sleigh by riding a short distance in it.
Two years after this Mr. Sewall built a double sleigh, as perhaps we should esteem it. He owned no horse. Contemplating another journey with his family to Bath in this, he engaged one owned by Mr. Linscott, and to match it another belonging to Mr. Eaton of Sandy River. A day or two before his journey he got them together and harnessed, all but the long bridles, Mr. Linscott helping and his wife, with their child Andrew, four years old, looking on. The horses were regarded as very steady and gentle. Mrs. Linscott, with some urging, got in with her child. Immediately on this the horses started, and were soon in a fast run, up by Mr. Linscott's, he and Mr. Sewall endeavoring in vain to overtake them. Mrs. Linscott did her best to keep her child and herself from being hurt, but she could not keep her seat, but was tossed about in all parts of the sleigh. The horses ran on some two and a half miles, when, some half way down the north side of Locke's Hill, the strap holding up the tongue gave way, and the tongue was driven into the snow and even into the ground, tipping the sleigh and stopping the team. The shock threw the riders several feet into the snow, but did not hurt them. Mrs. Linscott being thinly clad, was poorly prepared for such a ride, and on clambering into the road, found her feet so cold that she sat down, rubbing them in the snow. She had barely finished this when her husband came up, and soon after him Mr. Sewall, who had been delayed a little by looking for the child beside the road. They soon got the team in such order that the horses gave Mr. Linscott a slow ride home.
Mr. Sewall, with others, in 1784 and 1785, built the first saw and grist mill in the town, on Little Norridgewock Stream, near the present site of Park's Mills, to which Stephen Titcomb of Sandy River, as tradition says, hauled the first log and helped saw it into boards. Mr. Sewall put up two or three other mills in later years, being a carpenter by trade. He raised quite a family, the oldest of whom, Dummer, was the first white child born in Chesterville. He was born Aug. 22. 1783. A lot of land near John Butterfield's was bestowed as a birthright, which was sold about the time he attained the age of 21. Mr. Sewall made and repaired cooper's ware soon after he became a resident in Chesterville. He lacked some of the tools necessary in this business. Needing a "croze" he broke a piece from the point of a handsaw and made one. A piggin, a vessel with one stave extending higher than the others for a handle, would be a rare sight now; but the writer used to see them in his boyhood. They ordinarily contained about six quarts and were mostly used in milking. A two story house, raised Sept. 12, 1788, was built by Mr. Sewall, in which he lived many years. Mrs. Sewall once said, " It has stood sixty years and not a single death has occurred in it." This house has since been taken down. Mr. Sewall was the first Postmaster and Justice of the Peace in the town, both of which offices he filled several years. He died in February, 1846, at the age of 85 years. His wife died in May, 1852.

Colonel Dummer Sewall

M, b. 12 December 1737, d. 6 April 1832
     Colonel Dummer Sewall was born on 12 December 1737 in York, Maine, (or 17 Dec. 1737).1,2,3,4 He was the son of Capt. Samuel Sewall and Sarah Batchelder. When he was 19 years old Dummer Sewall enlisted in the Provincial Army, and served at the reduction of Louisburg where he was appointed ensign. On his return he was promoted to lieutenant and ordered to Canada, where he served in the army under General Wolfe and General Amherst until the conquest of the French possessions in North America was complete, participating in the battles which culminated in the conquest of Québec, 1759.

After his marriage he moved to that part of Georgetown, Maine which was later incorporated into the city of Bath. The date of this move is given as 1762. He built a log house on the eastern side of what is now the High Street in Bath, this was opposite the spot where later on he built the large and commodious home which is still standing. As soon as hostilities were threatened with Great Britain he was selected by the people of his district is one of the Committee of Safety and he was associated with Brigadier Samuel Thompson in the performance of these duties. He was also a delegate to the provincial Congress which assembled at Watertown, Massachusetts and by the council administrating the affairs of the state he was appointed Lieutenant Colonel of the regiment commanded by Colonel Samuel Mc Cobb. With this regiment he marched to Cambridge, Massachusetts and joined the Continental Army under Washington, soon after he was appointed Muster Master of the district of the Maine, the duties of which he performed during the remainder of the war. He was a magistrate at Lincoln County, Maine appointed by the first governor of that state and continued as such by successive appointments until his death. He was also for many years a special justice the Court of Common Pleas for Lincoln County. Shortly after the adoption of the Constitution of Massachusetts Colonel Sewall was elected senator from Lincoln County, he was a member of the Convention of 1788 which was called by the State to ratify the Constitution of the United States and was one of the Committee of Compromise appointed at the suggestion of General Hancock towards the close of the session to consider and report such amendments as would make the proposed form of government more acceptable. Without those the Constitution would not have been ratified by the Convention.

He was the first postmaster in Bath, serving during the period from the establishment of the regular mail until 1805. He was deeply interested in educational matters and was one of the first Overseers of Bowdoin College and served as trustee and treasurer of the college from 1799 until he resigned in 1806. He was a deeply sincere and religious man, and was one of the founders and a Deacon of the Winter Street Congregational Church in Bath when it was called the Old North Church. Over 300 of his family letters written in the last 35 years of his life have been preserved and give a vivid picture of his own spiritual nature and his keen interest in religious matters. He was noted for his amiable temper, his generous heart, his decisive character, his sound judgment and for more practical matters and for his great helpfulness.5

Colonel Dummer Sewall married Mary Dunning, daughter of William Dunning and Deborah Donnell, on 18 December 1760 in York, Maine, conducted by the Rev. Mr. Isaac Lyman. The Vital records, 1779-1903 Bath, give a date of 16 December at Bath.6 Colonel Dummer Sewall died on 6 April 1832 in Bath, Maine, at the age of 94 (DAR gives 1833 and Maine Fam. Vol 3 p. 249 gives 4 April 1832 whilst Sinnett gives 5 April 1832 which apparently agrees with his gravestone).1,2,4,7

Outline History of the Bagley and Sewall Co.

In the spring of 1823 there arrived in the little village of Watertown, George Goulding, a young machinist and millwright, who was destined to found what has become one of the oldest and largest manufacturing establishments in Watertown and northern New York.     
His first machine ship was located in a building that was on a site that is a part of the present Farwell and Rhines Flouring
Mills property on Fairbanks Street.
He continued his business here until April 10, 1840, when he bought real estate and water rights and built a new shop on
Sewall's Island on the north branch of Black River.
George Goulding was a mechanical genius and he was called upon to build and install all kinds of machinery for the many industries that were rapidly springing up in the new country.
At the beginning of the year 1853 his business had increased to the point where more capital and more executive ability were needed, so the partnership of Goulding, Bagley & Sewail was formed September 12, 1853, and the value of the business and plant was $19,000.00.     
George A. Bagley and Edmund Q. Sewall were both lawyers bv profession but the practice of law was distasteful to both of them so they gave it up to engage in business.
The new co-partnership prospered and their business expanded rapidly until they not only furnished machinery for northern New York, but they equipped many of the early flouring mills of Chicago, Milwaukee, and Minneapolis.
They also built machine tools which were designed by Mr. Goulding.
The co-partnership of Goulding, Bagley & Sewall was dissolved August 27, 1860, and on the same day the partnership of Bagley & Sewall was formed. George Goulding continued as superintendent with Bagley & Sewall until 1865. He died June 24 1878. The Bagley & Sewall Company was incorporated July 7 1882. Mr. George A. Bagley was elected president and Edmund Q. Sewall, secretary and treasurer.

In 1870, Honorable Warner Miller and Mr. Churchill of Herkimer New York, purchased in Germany the patents for the principle of making ground wood pulp and Bagley & Sewall built the first Voelter Grinder made in the United States.
They also built the first spring wet machine to handle the pulp made from these grinders.
As Watertown is located in what was then the heart of the paper making district of northern New York, it was concluded that this was the logical location for a plant to build paper making machinery.
In 1889 new buildings were erected and new machinery installed and the building of high grade Fourdrinier and cylinder paper making machines was begun and has since been the principal product of this company.
These machines have been supplied to the leading mills of the United States, Canada, Newfoundland, Great Britain, France, Norway, Sweden, China, and Japan.
This company was the first to produce a machine to make paper continuously at 1000 lineal feet per minute. In 1912, new shops were built in order to build the wider and faster machines that were then demanded by the paper trade.
At the present time there is being built the largest machine ever constructed, having a wire 304 inches wide which will make a finished sheet of paper 292 inches wide at a rate of 1500 lineal feet per minute. This machine will weight approximately 2000 tons.
Mr. Sewall died August 21, 1892, and Mr. Bagley passed away May 12,1915.
After the death of Mr. Bagley, Mr. Stuart D. Lansing succeeded him as president.
The management of the Bagley and Sewall Company have always taken a pardonable pride in the fact that its employees have had steady employment and in the hearty co-operation which has always been shown between the management and the men.
At present about 425 persons are employed and the payroll is ahout $11,000.00 a week.
The present officers of the company are:—
Charles W. Valentine, President.
Edward S. Lansing, Vice President.
Clarence E. Kinne, Vice President.
Charles D, Bingham, Treasurer.
Carroll L. Thompson, Secretary & Assistant Treasurer.
