Solomon WHITNEY was born in Marlboro, Vt., March 7, 1781; received the general education of those early times, working on the farm most of the time, yet developing quite a mechanical skill in painting, glazing, and working in wood. Dec. 9, 1805, he married Miss Lucy LYMAN, daughter of the Rev. Gershon C. LYMAN, pastor of the Congregational church at Marlboro, of which he was early an influential and con- sistent member. Here he lived, worked, reared, and educated his family until about the year 1831, when he moved to Whitingham, Vt., and purchased a farm one mile west of the middle of the town, near Sadawga Pond. Later he purchased a carding mill and cloth dressing establishment, where he make a success in carding the wool and dressing the homespun goods for the people of that vicinity. Here he met with an accident that made him a cripple for life. In going into the wheel-pit for some purpose while the big wheel was in motion, he slipped and one foot was caught in the great wooden cogs which cut and mangled foot and leg clear to the body. He was taken out and cared for by the best physician to be had, but for long and weary days his life was despaired of. But wonderful as it seems, his strong physical constitution, combined with as strong a will, brought him out with compara- tively a good leg, a trifle short, and stiff in the ankle. A few years later he sold his cloth dressing and wool carding establishment and built a chair factory on his own farm, getting a ready sale for all the goods he could make. And here he spent the last years of his life, a thoroughly good man and consistent Christian, loved and respected by all. He was a thorough musician for those days, both vocal and instru- mental, for years the leader of the choir in his church, and a member of a musical
