    • Piper's Corners: Joel Piper, a United Empire Loyalist from
      Massachusetts, came with Thomas Ingersoll's party of settlers
      to Oxford upon the Thames in 1793. He settled on lot 12, Conc
      2, one mile south of the Old Stage Road on the east side of the
      North and South trail. The community which developed here was
      named after him. On Tremaine's map of 1857, there are Pipers on
      three of the four corners. The Mabee family occupied the
      southwest corner, Lot 13, Con 2, as they had ever since Simon
      Mabee, a fellow U.E.L. from Massachusetts, had arrived from
      Norfolk County, in the early 1800's. Mr. Simon Mabee played a
      vital role in the development of Piper's Corners. It was on the
      north east section of his property that the First Baptist
      Church in Oxford was established, and the Piper's School was
      built. Towards the south end of his farm, he constructed a dam
      and pond, and built a grist mill for the early farmers. The
      impressive stone house that he erected with the date 1808
      inscribed above the doorway is still standing, and is now
      (late1970's) occupied by its present owners, Mr. and Mrs.
      Murray Budd. The Piper's Corners Baptist Church was the First
      Baptist church in Oxford County. In July 1808 Peter Teeple,
      Simon Mabee, Zachariah Burtch, Deborah Sales, Abigail Burtch
      and Elizabeth Scott met at the home of Peter Teeple to come
      under each other's watch-care. In 1809 they organized the
      Church. Meetings were held in the homes of the members. In
      Februry 1841, Elder Mabee offered 1 ? acres on the northeast
      corner of his farm for a church and cemetery. It was located
      just south of the school with the cemetery at the rear of the
      church and school. This cemetery became neglected and a new
      owner of the farm allowed his cattle to pasture there. The
      markers, which were numerous, were broken and the farmer
      gathered them up and put them in the fence corner near the
      cemetery around 1890 to 1900. They remained there for some
      years, then these tombstones were made into a nice smooth
      marble walk from the house to the barn.
      Simon Mabee built the Grist mill to serve the settlers. This
      mill continued in operation for many years. Mr. Ernest Mabee a
      great-grandson told Miss Hattie Mabee of Ingersoll, about its
      operation.

      In 1834 the first log school was erected a mile south of
      Piper's Corners. The Second school was built in 1856 on land
      was obtained from Walter Bishop Mabee, the son of the pioneer
      Simon Mabee.
