Excerpt from John Godfrey Saxe, 1900: A Biographical Sketch of Vermont's Lawyer, Journalist, Lecturer, and Rhymster

Saxe's brook, tributary to Rock river, a small stream in the northwest corner of the township, where a little settlement is still known as Saxe's Mill. The dam still remains to testify to the care with which it was planned and constructed. Prior to this the nearest mills were at Platts burgh, New York, across Lake Champlain by canoe, or at Burlington thirty-five miles distant. The mill must have been a welcome institution for there were no houses between Saxe's mill and Burlington and it is recorded that John Saxe in 1787 visited Burlington with noguide but his pocket compass, over a trail beset with hostile savages. John Saxe was a man of ability and perseverance, in every way calculated to cope 'with _the hard ships of a first settlement. He had, with his family, many perils to encounter and. Trials to endure; they were harrassed by the noble red men and-less noble but more inoffensive bears and catamounts and it is chronicled that at one time Mr. Saxe was obliged to swim the river breaking the ice with his hands, though as to the reason therefor the annalist is silent.
