Fryeburg Academy Grant, Oxford County, Maine, in the 1820 Census - now Mason Township

Fryeburg Academy Grant in Oxford County, Maine, in the 1820 Census - now Mason Township

Note: Has Batchelder's Grant written along the margin, although it's smeared and perhaps was meant to be erased by the Enumerator.  Should Fryeburg Academy Grant's figures be incorporated with those of Batchelder's Grant?  As can be seen in the map below, the two Grants were contiguous.
