Augustus Mellen Carter was a surveyor for the Brown Company in Berlin, N.H and for railroad companies in Western Maine. He was born and raised in Bethel, Maine and after fighting in the Civil War, he began his surveying career. We are fortunate to have a number of items relating to him still in the possession of family members. This is a compass and case that belonged to him. I also scanned a Woods Cookbook that came from his possessions. It's pretty funny to read the recipes and interesting for anyone who had a relative who worked in a logging camp.
