His early childhood was spent in Westminster and Fitchburg, Mass. When about ten, his father, who was a paper manufacturer, moved to Claremont, N.

WILBUR FISK WHITNEY (John, Joseph Glazier, Abner, Samuel, William, Nathaniel, John, John), b. Dec 9, 1839; m. July 17, 1866, Emeline S. JEWELL, b. Dec. 27, 1839. He was born in Ashburnham, Mass. For more than twenty years he has been actively engaged in the manufacture of chairs, and has become an important factor in the business interests of his native town. He was schooled in the business from boyhood. In mechanical skill, in a clear and prompt comprehension of the growing demands of the trade, and in the adoption of new methods to meet the changing requirements of the business, he has advanced to a prominent position among the manufacturers of the present time. In the personal supervision of an important industry Mr. WHITNEY has found full employment, yet he has been an efficient mem- ber of the school committee for many years, and has labored in his work with unfail- ing interest. He is a director of the Ashburnham National bank, and of the Nashua Reservoir Co. In 1875 he represented his district in the legislature. In 1878 he was nominated for congress by the Greenback and Independent parties. In the election he received 7,000 votes. He was renominated in 1882 and 1884. In 1876 and 1877 he was nominated for state treasurer, and in several instances his candidacy was indorsed by the Prohibitionists. With the experience of years he has joined the fruits of an attentive study of the social and political problems of the times. His conclusions are intelligently formed, and his judgment of men and measures is free from partiality or prejudice. In municipal affairs he has always manifested a com- mendable interest, and at all times has maintained an advanced position among his fellow men. In his daily life he has seldom wounded or disappointed his friends and has cultivated no enemies; res. South Ashburnham, Mass. 9360. i. OSCAR JEWELL, b. Jan 22, 1871; d. Jan. 2, 1886. In his brief life was developed a maturity of mind and character that com- commanded the respect and summoned the love of all who knew him. If young in years he was manly and noble in habit, his emotions were the offspring of a reflective mind, and in thought and deed his kindness to his friends and associates, his purity of life and his obedience to duty were unfailing.
