    Notes 
    • “He was educated in the schools of Rockland, at Washington Academy, Kent’s Hill Seminary and Lewiston, ME.; studied law in the office of his father and at the New York Law School; admitted to practice 1850; soon acquired a good reputation in his native State; was associated with the Hon. J. O. Foster in establishing the Rockland Atheneum Library; removed early in 1855 to Faribault, Minn., and formed a law partnership with his father.
      1863 he was appointed to take testimony for the relief of sufferers from the Indian depredations.
      For many years, he was City Recorder; for some time secretary of the Board of Trade, and twice has been mayor of the City of Faribault.
      He has filled with great honor nearly every office in the Knights of Pythias, also of other fraternities of which he is an enthusiast.
      For years he has been an eminent churchman, filling for long periods the offices of Warden, Sunday School superintendent of the parish Cathedral.
      As a lawyer he is pronounced by best authority as unsurpassed as an office lawyer, and with no superior in knowledge of the law. As a writer and speaker he is terse, logical, argumentative and convincing.
      His addresses while mayor on a great variety of occasions are classics, stamping him as a man of very superior abilities.
      He resides in Faribault, Minn.
      They have no children of their own, though they have reared several which they adopted.
