He went to Boston before he was of legal age, having bought his time from his father. He was engaged, for some years, as a salesman in gentlemens furnishings, but owing to ill health incurred by being forced, as a boy to do farm work beyond his strength, he was obliged to take up some outdoor occupation, therefore, he bought and sold goods of all kinds, loaned and invested money and acquired, for his times, a modest competency. Owing to over strict religious training in his early youth, he was not a professed Christian, but in all his life, he wronged no one intentionally, either directly or indirectly, and died at peace with all the world. Those who knew him intimately say his word was as good as his bond. Children: *1415. Charles Sanford, b. July 19, 1853. 1416. Frederick Everett, b. Feb. 20, 1857, m. in 1890, Mary E. Falvey.

Biography of Hon. E. D. Shattuck

HON. E.D. SHATTUCK, – Judge Shattuck has been prominently connected with the public affairs of our state for more than thirty years, and is so closely identified with our interests and society as to be a distinctively representative man among us. His mental strength and clearness, combined with remarkable accuracy and absence of personal bias, have made his services of the highest value. He has ever maintained a peculiar coolness of judgement, and neither has been swayed by popular excitement nor has resorted to sensational methods to advance his own views or interests. He has ever been above suspicion of corruption or entanglement with corrupt rings, and has therefore been relied upon as a guardian of justice, and to prick the ambitions or corrupt designs of those who would trench upon the popular rights. For this reason he has been sought continuously to fill the office of judge; and it is a credit to our people that they prefer such men for their high positions. With peculiar plainness of manner and address, he has ever refused to cultivate popularity, yet has been frequently named by leading journals as a satisfactory candidate for governor of the state, – suggestions which have only lacked his own cooperation to meet with realization. The remarkable success of Judge Shattuck both in business, in his profession, and in public capacities, commends to young men his integrity and fidelity and honorable views of life. He has ever been an ornament to the legal profession, by his practice condemning extortion, and carrying honesty into every detail. E.D. Shattuck was born at Bakersfield, Vermont, December 31, 1824,...
