Biography of Albon Loverin

Albon Loverin, a prominent farmer of Northfield, is a native of Springfield, N.H. He was born May 24, 1851, son of Austin C. and Lavina A. (Morrill) Loverin. The father, who was a farmer, died in 1868. He was twice married. The children of his first marriage were: Elijah W. and Gilbert, both of whom are now deceased. His second wife, Lavina, a native of Wilmot, bore him six other children, namely: Oliver B., who resides in Grand Rapids, Mich.; Sarah, who is the wife of George Morgan, of Springfield, N.H.; Ara M., who is a hotel keeper of Concord; Daniel O., now deceased; and Ida L., who lives in New London, N.H.

Albon Loverin, the fourth child of his parents, received his education in the common schools. After attaining his majority, he worked out on farms around Springfield and at Francestown for a time. Subsequently he was employed in Hanover eight years and in Manchester three years. Mr. Loverin came to Northfield in 1885, and bought the estate near Tilton village known as the Chase Wyatt farm, upon which he now resides. It contains seventy-five acres. Since it came into his possession he has made some improvements. Besides carrying on general farming, he keeps a dairy, which yields him considerable profit. In November of the same year he married Miss Jennie L. McDowell, who was born May 18, 1858, in Heighgate, Vt., daughter of Leonard and Winnifred (Burt) McDowell. Mr. and Mrs. McDowell, who came originally from Montreal, Canada, settled in Eden, Vt., and passed the last part of their lives in that town. Mr. Loverin’s only child, Gracie Belle, is now seven years old.

In the summer season the family residence is one of the many New Hampshire homes opened to the city dweller who wishes to rest and recreate amid beautiful and healthful surroundings. About twenty boarders are accommodated here every year. The estate is now called, and very appropriately, “Mountain View Farm.” Mr. Loverin is a Democrat.
