"Harley Ives' paternal grandfather's name was Joseph Ives. He
m. Clarissa Hall. They were both from Meriden, Ct., and came to
Canada in 1793. The family have no authentic account of their
ancestry, but tradition says they were among the early emigrants to
the New England colonies. He was a man of energy and his pos-
terity with hardly an exception have been intelligent and useful mem-
bers of the community, some of whom have occupied prominent posi-
tions in public life. We find them generally identified with the
difierent branches of the Christian Church. His (Alfred's) maternal
grandfather's name was Hezekiah Sleeper. A famil\' of this name
came from England about the year 1700 and settled in New Hamp-
shire. The branch of this family described in this sketch remained
loyal to the government of England during the struggle of the Colo-


nies for independence. And Hezekiah Sleeper, then a child, re-
moved early in life to Vermont, where he married Hannah Batchelder.
Not satisfied with the government and laws they came in 1801 to
Canada and settled in Stanstead. Mr. Sleeper was a captain of militia
and took an active part in the War of 181 2 in organizing companies
to defend the border against invasion. This couple lived to see their
ten children, five girls and five boys, grown up and settled in life.
No one in the community was more esteemed than Mr, Sleeper. He
died the 23rd of Sept., 1849, at the age of 79 years. His wife lived
to see her great-great-grandchildren and died in Aug., 1871, at the
age of 93. The oldest child, a daughter, married Harley Ives of
Hatley, neither of whom are living."

of music. He then entered the mercantile business in com-
pany with his brother, L. E. Parker, and continued for ten
years. The four years following he was in business alone in
Hatley, after which he with his family removed to Martinville,

At first telegraph operator, express agent and spare station
