Though, border disputes between in the United States and Great Britain over the area made it impossible for pioneers to gain titles for the land. In response, the neighboring now Canadian province of New Brunswick gave out patents for pioneers to live on the land but not claim ownership or sell it. By 1825 surveyors traveling along the Aroostook river noted that twenty families lived along it and noted that while agriculture was present, all of the family employed most of their time towards lumber.
