Biographical Review, Vol. 21

Excerpt from Biographical Review, Vol. 21 Having labored with diligence and with the help of many hands, as is needful in this fast-going, news-loving, novelty-producing age, availing ourselves of the material kindly placed at our disposal by our patrons in Belknap and Strafford Counties, representative citizens of New Hampshire, whose cordial co-operation has made the work possible, we are happy to announce the completion of another Biographical Review, the twenty-first volume in our Atlantic States Series, whose publication we began a few ears since, have carried on without intermission, and are still continuing. The local biographer supplements the work of the town and count historian, and lights up with living interest the dry names and dates dear to the genealogist, while freely conceding to the census enumerator the palm for longer schedules. Well-born, of reputable ancestry, sprung, some of them, from early colonists of two hundred, yes, even of two hundred and sixty years ago - for Dover, it must be remembered, was the first permanent settlement in the State - the persons whose life stories are here outlined have earned the right to be commemorated. The accounts here given are of used talents and opportunities, of industry, energy, and enterprise, far-reaching and to good ends, not of slothfulness, not of selfishness, knavery, and greed, but of fair dealing, of public spirit, patriotism, self-sacrifice. Some attention has been given to tracing lines of descent and kinship, interesting in themselves and often valuable as showing the transmission of both physical and mental traits, livery wise generation does its own work in its own way, and, writing its own records, leaves its reputation and its example as a legacy to posterity.
