Unknown – Information Label, Museum, Damariscove, ME
The Museum on the two-mile long island Damariscove has a small sign reading: “1622 / During the early days of the Ply- / mouth Colony there were thirteen year / round fishermen living on / Damariscove. After a particularly / harsh winter, the fishermen of the / island supplied the colonists with / much needed provisions.”  There is no mention of the destruction by a violent storm of the Little James in the harbor there in 1624.
