I've kinda got us off topic here but if you follow the Presque Isle stream on the map it flows from Presque Isle through Mars Hill and crosses into Canada to empty into the Saint John river. The gov't signs on the bridges in Canada all call it "Big Presque Isle stream". I think "Prestile" may have been adapted from the french pronunciation of Presque Isle, which when spoken quickly sounds like "prestile". So, I guess I'm wrong about it being a word massacre seeing that it is listed as the actual name in some documents; always wondered about that.
