      “By the death of his father he was called to assume the duties of head of the family at the age of twenty years. Soon after he became of age he went to Aroostook County with a view of taking up land for a farm, but an early frost that year caused him to abandon the enterprise, and he returned to the homestead farm after a six months’ absence. He then resolved to pay for the homestead farm, which was heavily involved at the time of his father’s death. This he succeeded in doing by sttrict economy and the most untiring industry. He spent a life of constant labor, improving his farm in the interim between the busy seasons of the agricultural year. An enduring monument to his ceaseless toil is to be seen in the walls of stone upon the farm. It is estimated that there are 1000 rods of this substantial fence on the farm, nearly all of which was built by him. He was a man that always had a word to offer in behalf of christianity and morality. He died Oct. 19, 1869, aged 51 years. At the time of his death his property was inventoried at $6,000.”
