Husted, Jethro B., Vergennes, was born in Starksboro, Vt., in 1817. He commenced his business life as an apprentice in the tailor business and clothing trade, and in 1840 opened a store on his own account and continued successfully in that business until 1868, when he sold his interest and spent two years in Philadelphia. Having experienced some reverses he returned to his native town in 1870, and engaged in his old business, in which he still continues. He was married in 1852 to Jane Simonds, of Middlebury, Vt. He was a son of Ezekiel and Martha (Allen) Husted, who were natives of Dutchess County, N. Y., and settled in Starksboro, Vt., before 1800. They had a family of ten children, four of whom are now living — J. B., Cynthia, Allen, and Ezekiel. Ezekiel Husted, sr., and his wife, Martha, died in Western New York.
