returning to New Haven in the spring of 1862. He was again
elected supervisor in 1858.

October 15, 1835, his wife died, leaving him with five out
of a family of eight children. He married again, August 21,
1836, to Mrs. Sarah Hitchcock, widow of Stephen Hitchcock.
The result of this marriage was three children, of whom one
survives. His first interest in political aflairs was during the
canal excitement, he voting for De Witt Clinton, who was in
favor of constructing the canal. From that time he affiliated
with the Whig party, and on the organization of the Repub-
lican party entered its ranks, where he has since firmly re-
mained. He has always taken a prominent part in local and
State politics, and is one of the most prominent respectable
politicians of the county. In the days when it was considered
■essential to the welfare of the country that a well-regulated
militia should be maintained, he took an active part in that,
and rose step by step till he attained to the rank of lieutenant-
colonel, receiving his first commission from Governor Clinton,
and his last from acting-Governor Pitchers in 1828.

Mr. Rowe united with the Congregational church in Paris
township in 1816, and is now a deacon of the church in New
Haven, and has been one of the trustees nearly ever since the
organization of the church, which he assisted in perfecting,
being one of its original members. Since 1829 he has been a
strong advocate of the temperance cause ; and he attributes
his present good health and robust strength, at the age of
eighty-three, in a great measure to his temperate and . abste-
mious life. No comment on the general characteristics of
Mr. Rowe is necessary. Everybody knows him, and to know
is to respect him.

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH.



CAPTAIN HENRY J. DAGGKTT,

son of Henry and Mary Daggett, w;is born at Boston,
Massachusetts, August 16, 1826. In 1838 his parents
moved to Oswego County, and settled at Oswego city,
whore they remained for about four years, and then removed
to New Haven township, where they continued to reside
till their death, which occurred as follows : Henry Daggett,
in April, 1870 ; Mrs. Mary Daggett, in September, 1871.

Captain Henry J. Daggett received a good English edu-
cation at the academy and high school of Oswego. He
devoted his attention to agricultural pursuits until he was
nineteen years old, when he chose a life " on the ocean
wave," first as a common sailor, in which capacity he served
three years, and then as mate one year, and master for fifteen
years. He commanded a number of different ves.sels, and
was afterwards associated with Penfield, Lyon & Co. in the
grain trade, sailing-vessels being used by them exclusively.

Retiring from the command of a vessel in 1863, he still
retained an interest in the shipping trade. He has been
extensively interested in farming, and also in the flouring,
lumbering, and commission business, and has shipped a
large quantity of cheese to Liverpool. He is one of the
largest landholders in New Haven township, where lie owns
six hundred acres, besides as much more in other localities.
By reference to the New York State records, we find him
to have been a member of assembly from the third district
of Oswego County in 1875, and his name appears promi-
nently on the reports of committee on commerce and navi-
gation, and on the sub-conimittec of the whole. He is
spoken of in the State documents very favorably as a legis-
lator, and the gen9ral popularity he enjoys among his con-
stituents, and the people generally, goes far to confirm the
good opinion of him therein expressed. In 1872 he was
elected supervisor of New Haven township, and was re-
elected for five terms consecutively, the last year being
chosen chairman of the board, the duties of which office
he discharged in an able and impartial manner, and to the
entire satisfaction of his brother-members of the board, as
expressed in a resolution passed at the close of the session.

Mr. Daggett is a man of varied and extensive experience,
an excellent judge of men and things, and a man not calcu-
lated to err in his estimate of human character. He has
been a leading Republican for many years, but has always
retained enough of the fortiter in re so as not to be influ-
enced by party cliques or partisan motives. Of the suaviter
in mndn he possesses a large share, hence he enjoys the
confidence and esteem of people of all political complexions.
He is a prominent member of the Masonic order, being
now a Royal Arch Mason ; and is also a member of the
I. 0. 0. F. Captain Daggett married Frances L., daughter
of Philander and Eliza Holly, of New Haven, who survives.

A remarkable fact connected with the captain's sea-faring
experience is, that he was never once .shipwrecked or lost
a cargo. He retains a picture of the good ship " Dread-
naught," which he commanded, and which he considers his
pet ves.scl. He points to her with a commendable pride.
