    • Free Will Baptist Society, "In 1827, nevertheless, only a step in time beyond the pioneers’ life-and-death struggle for subsistence in a hostile environment - and only four years after its organization as a town- Milo’s voters authorized the expenditure of $300, a large sum to them then, 'To support the preaching of the gospel.’

      “That same year, twelve of the old settlers united in organizing the town’s first religious group - the Free Will Baptist Society.“Communications must have been poor, in those days, between the east and the west sides of the town, for no names of the west side residents - no Sargents, or Emerys, Tompson, Lees, Whiddens, or Shipleys - showed up on that 1827 list of members.

      “That first group of twelve, as it was set down in the ‘Milo and Brownville Register,’ in 1905, included Moses Snow, Stephen Snow, Benjamin Boobar, Sr., Rufus Johnson, Aaron Day, James White, Jr., Nancy Snow, Fannie Snow, Sarah Roe, Abigail Johnson, Eliza Heath, and Mary Stevens."
