Oct. 10, 1843, Emily Hall Churchill, b. , dau. of

Capt. Henry and Emily (Hall) Churchill, of Portland,
Conn.

He attended the public schools in his native town and for
two years a private school in Boston. He then took a pre-
paratory course of study with Eev. ilr. Corson at Wind-
ham, afterward at Guiliford, Conn., with the intention of
entering the military school at West Point. At the age of
21, with changed circumstances, he entered the ofBce of
the Quarry Compan)^, which was then owned principally
by his father and uncle. The management subsequently
devolved upon him and Mr. Frederick Hall, and after his
father's death he had the control of tlie entire business.
It was soon organized into a stock company and Mr.
Brainerd was elected its president and general manager.

It is to his ability, his honesty, integrity, and uprightness of
character that he owes his advancement in life, although
he inlierits from his worthy ancestors those virtues that
have characterized them through each successive genera-
tion. His individual history is stamped on the history of
the Episcopal Church in Portland, and his generous gifts
to that and to benevolent objects were well known. He
was a vestr}Tnan, and a prominent member of Trinity
Church, Episcopal, and an earnest worker in its interests

Co., and for 25 years a director in the First National
Bank in Middletown, Conn. He was one of the incor-
porators of the Valley Eailroad Co., and a director in the
Middletown Ferry Co.
While he has always been ready to assist in every political
movement that tended to promote honest legislation and
place good men in office, his only acceptance of political
honors was tlie position of Presidential Elector in 1880, in
the electoral vote for Garfield and Arthur, he being a
staunch believer in republican party privileges. Mr.
