Matthew McCauley (July 11, 1850 – October 25, 1930) was the first mayor of the city of Edmonton, and a member of the legislative assemblies of both the Northwest Territories and Alberta. McCauley was born into a farming family in Sydenham, Canada West (what would become the province of Ontario) to an Irish father and Canadian mother. His restless nature and desire for adventure led him to travel west to Manitoba.

Although it's not comprehensive, this book offers interesting quick histories of the names of many Maine cities and towns. It's a good little reference book.

This book is filled with silly speculation and outright errors. The two authors seem to have done only the most casual and frequently confused research, so that some entries are absurdly non-specific, some are contradictory, and some are preposterously erroneous--the entry for Walker's Point, for instance, calls the family of the two presidents Bush descendants of Richard Walker, "who settled Walker's Point in the 1740s," when, in fact the two Bushes are descendants of the Thomas and Catherine (McLelland) Walker who married in Bristol England in 1785 and seem never to have seen Maine.

I won't say that it doesn't have its amusing moments, but the book is an embarrassment to its authors and it's publisher.
