An interview with Robert Hartford Cram, who lived on Cumberland Foreside from 1904 to 1919, was conducted by Alice Mary Pierce on October 15, 1986, at the home of the late Miss Margaret Payson, in Falmouth, Maine. Mary Dalton rented a farm on Cumberland Foreside to Linwood and Gertrude Cram and their children, Robert, Marshall, Elton, and Lydia, from 1904 to 1919. The property was initially owned by Thomas Scales, one of the original proprietors of the Town of North Yarmouth, and was the location of the first Cumberland Almshouse from 1837 to 1866. The property was known as the Payson Estate during the latter half of the 20th century.
