The settlement of Buxton began in the early 1750s with many families moving north from Biddeford and Saco. This town on the Saco River was to attract many families who prospered from the growing mills and lumber industries. Rev. Paul Coffin, a Harvard College graduate, arrived in 1761 to form a new church and keep an excellent record of baptisms and marriages.. Buxton is blessed with thorough vital records providing added authority to this book which was just published (June 2022).
