Thanks Scott! I understand now. Great post.
I can tell you a little about Montague as I grew up in West Enfield but my father and grandmother always called it Montaque until there death. Dad was the town constable from 1935 until he died in 1963 and he told me why the name was changed. It was a unincorporated town separate from Enfield and it did not have a Post Office so in order to get a post office they was required to be combined with Enfield as a separate village called West Enfield later my mother became the Post Master in West Enfield which at that time was located in what became Harry Nash's Barber Shop and then they built a new post office down by the Penobscot Bridge across the river from the ST Regis paper company in Howland. I hope this is of help. This happened a lot in Maine back then an example was Dover Foxcroft was originaly two seperate towns Dover and Fox Croft.
