Archibald Gamble started with his brothers Thomas and William and sister Mary for America; but on the point of sailing he was impressed into the British service with his brother Thomas. It was some time before he escaped from this forced servitude, but he eventually did and came to Virginia, thence to Londonderry, N.H., thence to Pemaquid, and in 1736 removed to upper St. Georges, now Warren, Me., and located on lot 40, near his sister Mary (Gamble) Starrett. ...
Archibald Gamble was a member of Capt. Thomas Hutchin's company of Rangers in 1755, and after a life of many adventures with Indians and in making a home in the wilderness of the New World, met his death in sight of his home in the winter of 1779, while hauling hay across the Georges' river; he and his team broke through the ice, chilled and suffocated by the winter water, died a short time after his rescue.
