son, N. Y. He was constable in 1863. He was a farmer
in East Glastonbury, Conn. He possessed characteristics
which were peculiar to himself in a marked degree. He
was a man of sunny disposition and pleasant manners, and
the sense of the humorous was developed in such a way
that his conversation was always listened to with interest,
and never failed to entertain. He will perhaps be remem-
bered most by his characteristic remarks, although he was
ever ready, as a good citizen and friend, to aid any worthy
cause. He was a member of the church in Buckingham,
and had been connected with that society for many years.
