A mile in from Route 11 Swift Brook crosses, though the road was closed at the bridge in April 2014, probably because it was impassable in mud season.  In August 2014 is was open and the flow was a trickle compared to the roaring beast of  April.  Stacyville’s Swift Brook Road is a gateway to Katahdin Woods & Water Recreation Area in T3 R7 WELS.

The brook, which joins Mud Brook on its way through Herseytown Township to the Penobscot River East Branch in Soldiertown Township, is true to its name in spring.

      For family history resources see, at the top of this page: History>> Primary Sources>> Archives. The Article on the Maine State Archives lists several resources, including the Archives itself. You might also contact the town office in Stacyville, and in Sherman and Patten. Local people may remember him or suggest others who might help.
