301G. xi. Emily Charlotte 7 , b. Dec. 2, 1831; d. at Fitchburg, Jan. 27, 1903; m.
at Fitchburg, Mass., Dec. 1, 1853, James Freeman Dana Garfield, son of
Elisha and Bathsheba (Edgerton) Garfield.* He was born at Langdon,
N. H., August 14, 1828; and died at Fitchburg, Mass., December 14,
1911, aged 83. Mr. Garfield was one of Fitchburg's most prominent
citizens, and was associated with the business growth and development
of the city for sixty years ; its business institutions, its banks, its
library, its schools, as alderman, as representative to the state legislature.
At the age of 17 he was apprenticed to learn the printer's trade at Alstead,
N. H. He continued in that line of business for seventeen years. In 1852
he located permanently in Fitchburg and purchased a half interest in the
Fitchburg Weekly Sentinel in company with his brother, Elisha Garfield,
to whom he sold his interest in 1860, but continued in the newspaper busi-

• ness in Boston, Mass., and Pawtucket, R. I., until 1864, when he formed

a partnership with John P. Sabin and entered the coal business. After
several changes, George Newton Proctor bought out the other partner and
in 1866 was organized the Garfield & Proctor Coal Co., which has since
been one of the leading firms in New England, with offices and yards at
Fitchburg, Boston and New Bedford. Mr. Garfield was president of the
company 1S88-1893 and again in 1906 until his death. Among his other
activities were : Director of the Orswell Mills, treasurer of the Brown
Bag Filling Machine Co., president of the Sawyer Tool Manufacturing
Co., president, vice president and trustee, at different times, of Worcester
North Savings Institution, twelve years its president, director of the Safety
Fund National Bank since 1882.

Mr. Garfield was a man of literary tastes and had gathered a valuable
library- His helpfulness was deeply appreciated by those who availed
themselves of his wide knowledge and critical skill. He was the author
of many papers, pamphlets and journals upon historical and genealogical
topics. He was the founder of the Fitchburg Historical Society ; member
of the Worcester Society of Antiquity ; life member of the New England
Historic, Genealogical Society; member of the Universalist (First Parish,
Fitchburg) Church. He belonged to the Free Masons and was a member
of other fraternal societies — a genial man who enjoyed the respect and
esteem of the entire community.

"Mrs. Garfield was a devoted wife and mother — a lovable, kind-hearted,
helpful woman, who spent much of her life and strength in making others
happy ; and it is no exaggeration to say she was beloved by everybody
who came within the circle of her acquaintance." She passed away after
nearly fifty years of married life. Their children, born at Fitchburg,
were :

3057. 1. Charlotte Gertrude 9 Garfield, b. July 7, 1856; d. Oct. 11, 1859. Scarlet
