New York state.

Here is an unfortunate break in the con-
tinuity of succession, but the Kersey family
herein treated have grounds for believing they
sprang from the old patriarch William, and
Elijah, to whom we come now, was born on
Long Island, New York, March 24, 1790, and
died at Linneus, Maine, in 1875. He emi-
grated from his island home to St. John, New
Brunswick, in 1810, residing there and at St.
John until in 1832 he became one of the pio-
neers of Aroostook county, settling in Lin-
neus, then an embryo town. He farmed for a
living and burnt charcoal. He married Annie
Bell, of Buxton, in 1817; she was born April
II, 1794, and died at Linneus, about 1887.
Giildren : John B., Samuel B., Mary A.,
Catherine M., Eliza S., William G. and Sarah
G.

Samuel B., son of Elijah and Annie (Bell)
Hersey, was born June 14, 1821, at St. John,
New Brunswick, and was brought to Aroos-
took county by his father when a child. He
belonged to ^Iaine■s most numerous army of
workers, the cultivators of her fertile soil,
which is at once the source of its greatest in-
come, the nursery of its great men and the
foundation of its happy homes. He married
Elizabeth, daughter of William White. Chil-
dren: Alpheus C, deceased; Mary, Ira G.,
Annie E. and Samuel M.

Ira G., son of Samuel B. and Elizabeth
(White) Hersey, was born in Hodgdon,
Aroostook county, March 31, 1858. His early
nurture was secured in the village school of
his native town, with a classical course at
Houlton Academy. Choosing the law as a
profession he read with Lyman S. Strickland,
of Houlton, one of the then leaders of the
Aroostook bar. Young Hersey was admitted
to practice at the September term, 1880, pass-
ing a highly creditable examination, both to
himself and his proficient preceptor. The
same year he engaged in active practice in the
county seat and has ever maintained a good
standing in the profession and in the com-
munity. Mr. Hersey is much sought after by
those who have recourse to the courts to re-
dress their wrongs. He is thorough in prep-
aration, and in conducting a case in court he
brings out all there is in it of both law and fact
and is never surprised or discomfited by the
unexpected tactics of the other side, but is
ready with counter moves. He at one time co-
operated in political matters with the Prohibi-
tion party and was honored with the nomina-



tion for governor. He made a splendid run,
but of course in Republican Maine nothing else
than a Republican landslide is expected, and
with the exception of the Garcelon regime the
state has been ruled by Republican governors
for a long period. Mr. Mersey, though still a
Prohibitionist in principle, believes the best
practical good is to be obtained in working
through one of the great parties and to that
end he allied himself with the party of Blaine,
Reed and Manley. Since joining that party
he has been elected as city attorney of Houl-
ton. In this position he has brought to the
discharge of the duties a public conscience
and an unalterable disposition to uphold the
laws. Mr. Hersey is one of the clean men in
politics and stands for civic righteousness; he
is the present representative-elect from Houl-
ton to the Maine legislature. The fraternities
to which he belongs «re subordinate lodge In-
dependent Order of Odd Fellows, the Canton
of Houlton, the Aroostook Encampment, No.
41. He is at present grand master of the
Grand Lodge. He is connected with Monu-
ment Lodge, No. 96, Ancient Free and Ac-
cepted Masons; Aroostook Chapter, No. 20;
witli St. Aldeniar Commandery, at present
eminent commander ; with Aroostook Council,
No. 16, of Presque Isle ; with the Maine Con-
sistory of Portland ; with Kora Temple,
Arabic Order of the Mystic Shrine, of Lew-
iston. He is also a member of the Benevolent
and Protective Order of Elks. He married
Annie, daughter of William Dillen.
