Cornville is a small rural community in Somerset County, located just north of Skowhegan, the county seat. The town was first settled in 1794 by men from Massachusetts and New Hampshire, many of them veterans of the Revolutionary War. The town was first called Bernardstown but, when it was incorporated as the 116th town on February 24, 1798, the name was changed to Cornville.

This transcription was made from a microfilm of the original records. It includes all of the material on that microfilm except an index.
