DAIGLE, MAINE. In the late 1800's about eight miles south of Fort Kent on the Caribou Road, a growing community became known as Daigle. Its name originated from its first settler, Vital Daigle, who had made his way through the woods from the town of Frenchville in search of a new home for his family. Other settlers from Frenchville had followed and Daigle developed into a small community.

In 1858, in a deed signed by Jean Baptiste Daigle's (1792-1846) widow (Emilienne Morin 1797-1877) and 13 other family members, Vital Daigle (1836-1899) received title to the family homestead on Lot 53. Vital Daigle also went to develop new land in Township 17, Range 6, the town immediately south of the original family settlement, now known as New Canada Plantation.

The entry for New Canada Plantation in the Maine Register for 1882 lists Docite Daigle as assessor, Alcime Daigle as the tax collector, John Baptiste Daigle as the treasurer, Mrs Arthemise Daigle as a school committee member, and Vital Daigle as a lumber manufacturer.

Vital Daigle is known to be the founder of Daigle, Aroostook, Maine.

In 1888, long after Vital Daigle and wife Julie Cyr brought 12 children into the world, Vital Daigle deeded Lot 53 to his son Raymond Daigle (1858-1952). There, Raymond and his wife, Evelyn Daigle, raised 12 children of their own.
