United States Maine Aroostook Moro
Moro is the remaining fragment of an extinct former mega-plantation in the forests on the southeast edge of the Central Aroostook townships of Aroostook County. Rockabema Plantation was formed from T6 R5 WELS (Moro), T7 R5 WELS, and the northwest quarter of T6 R4 WELS (Merrill) in 1846. A reduced Rockabema was reorganized when the northwest quarter of T6 R4 WELS was set off in 1855; in 1858 that piece became part of the newly organized Merrill Plantation. In 1859 Maine abolished mega-plantations. Therefore, Rockabema Plantation was further reduced and reorganized from just the former Township Number 6 Fifth Range West of the Easterly Line of the State (T6 R4 WELS) in 1860. This smaller Rockabema Plantation had its name changed to the Plantation of Moro in 1870, and reorganized with this name again in 1887 and 1890.
