PART 3.
...The modern looking house further up which has for many years been the home of Daniel I. Odell, was one of these hipped roon mansions built in 1820 by Daniel Drew, well remembered by all who had to pay taxes two score years ago. It afterwards became t`e property of Humphrey Peavey. When James W. Ripley, who had been representative to congress from the Oxford district, was appointed collector of the District of Passamaquoddy he moved to Eastport and lived in this house.
