A county, lake, and river in Maine and New Hampshire. 

Translated as "fish spearing" or "fish curing place". 



It is from Anasagunticook or (Androscoggin)Abenaki Indians.  "This tribe had 500 or so acres to raise corn before all dying small pox during 1757.  
The Abenaki (or Abnaki) are a tribe of Native American and First Nations people, one of the Algonquian-speaking peoples of northeastern North America. The Abenaki live in the New England region of the United States and Quebec and the Maritimes of Canada, a region called Wabanaki ("Dawn Land") in the Eastern Algonquian languages. The Abenaki are one of the five members of the Wabanaki Confederacy. "Abenaki" is a linguistic and geographic grouping; historically there was not a strong central authority, but as listed below a large number of smaller bands and tribes who shared many cultural traits".[1]


The Androscoggin River is located in U.S. of Maine and New Hampshire, in northern New England.  It is "178 miles long joining the Kennebec River at Merrymeetingbay in Maine before it's water emptires into the Gulf of Maine on the Atlantic Ocean".
