Harvard, Dec. 17, 1824. He was born in Harvard and always resided there. The land on which he resided was purchased by his great-grandfather in 1726. It is situated in the fertile valley east of Oak Hill. His farm buildings were the largest and most complete in the town and that section. He was one of the best known citizens in the town. Was for years justice of the peace, served as assessor, and held other town offices. His orchard produced 1,000 barrels of apples each year. In 1878 his barn and its con- tents were destroyed by fire; the loss was $10,000. In referring to his death, the Worcester Spy says; He was one of the best known citizens and farmers of Worces- ter county. The estate upon which he lived and died had been in his family since 1699, coming to him in direct descent, and there for many years he extended open- handed hospitality. His deeds of charity were unostentatious, but many. When he was 16 years of age he began life for himself as a commission merchant and dealer in country produce, driving a four-horse team over the road to Boston; and upon his father's death he assumed the latter's business. He was a life-long Dem- ocrat, although never a politician, and was the only surviving charter member of the Harvard Lodge of Odd Fellows, which he assisted to organize 50 years ago." The farm of Mr. Samuel F. WHITNEY, in the eastern section of Harvard, is another (referring to fine farms) which delights the visitor, as well as the owner, and is fitted to inspire the young argriculturist with confidence and hope. His barn, which is an indication of his type of farming, is said to be the largest and in every way the best appointed in the county of Worcester. [Hist. of Mid. Co., pp. 567-8.] He d.
