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.
On my maps Presque Isle Stream flows for a good distance south to north before turning east in Mapleton, entering the Aroosook River in Presque Isle.
Prestile Steam headwaters at Christina Reservoir in Fort Fairfield and flows south through Easton, Mars Hill, and Bridgewater before entering NB at Centreville where it becomes Presquile River
