Lincoln Plantation was Township No. 5 in the 2nd Range. Township No. 5 in the 1st Range was Magalloway Plantation. Lincoln Plantation was organized (as a plantation) in 1875, and has never had a town government (it couldn't without changing its name, as there is already a town in Maine called Lincoln). If the dates you need are post-1892, your best bet is to search the vital records returned to the state.

A "History of Wilsons Mills, Maine, and the Magalloway Settlements" was published in 1975, and is available at several state libraries. You might also try "Pioneers of the Magalloway from 1820 to 1904," by Granville P. Wilson, first published in 1918.
