of East Guilford, Connecticut, located in the Lackawanna Valley A.D. 1840, and became the leading spirit in the inauguration and development of the great industries that have built up the City of Scranton. He was twice elected to Congress from this district, and until the close of his life, was prominent in the important enterprises for advancing the interests of this community.
Kind hearted and benevolent, genial and true in his relations to his fellow men. A man of noble purpose and high Christian character, he was called to his reward in the midst of his usefulness. Loved and mourned by all who knew him.
