William Maynard was born in Berkshire county, Massachusetts, in 1805, and in 1839 came to Portland, and settled on what is now the Wm. Booth farm. He married Miss Emily P. Barrs, in 1827. Their children were: Hannah, Jane and Almina, all of whom are dead. Jane married David B. Seely, and Almina married Martin V. Seely. Mrs. Maynard died in 1855, and Mr. Maynard afterwards married Lucy Pomeroy. He is now living in Geneseo, Henry county, Illinois, but every year his genial face is seen  at the Old Settler's meeting, which he usually entertains with reminiscences of the olden time put into flowing verse.
