    History George grew up on the farm in Lower Montague. By 1798, George and his parents were alone at the farm. At the age of 19, he went by canoe and horseback to West River in search of a wife. He came upon a roof thatching and was much taken by a young woman helping her father. That evening he attended a spinning frolic, met Hannah, and asked her to marry him. She accepted. They married the next day. They lived in a log cabin until building a fine stone house in 1843. This house still stands today in Lower Montague. One of its unusual features is a brass telescope which fits into a cubbyhole in the wall next to the front door.
