immediate family and friends, but by the community at large. He was born in
Limington, York County, March 18, 1810, and about the age of twenty years removed
to this city, where he has since resided. At first he was engaged in trade, until the at this
administration of James Buchanan, when he was appointed an inspector of customs,
and remained in this position utile the end of his term. when he entered into the
service of the Grand Trunk Railway, where he remained until his death. His brief and
painful illness was borne with patient fortitude, and he died as he had lived, beloved
and respected by all who knew him. Prompt and faithful in business, genial in
disposition, he had many friends and no enemies. His loss will be will be deeply felt
wherever he was known, and he will be long remembered as a warm-hearted friend and
friend, and an honest man.
