David M. Currier, M.D., a successful physician of Newport, was born in Grafton, Grafton County, September 15, 1840, son of David and Rhoda (Morse) Currier. The grandfather, David Currier, presumably came from Salisbury, Mass., and located in Canaan, where he became the owner of a good tract of land, and died at the age of seventy-one years.

David, the father of Dr. Currier, was also a farmer. His active life was spent in Canaan and in Grafton. At a later date he moved to the farm, where he died July 2, 1862. His death resulted from injuries from the fall of a tree upon him while at work in the woods. He married Rhoda Morse, who was born in Enfield in 1807, and died March 31, 1894.

In 1885 he took a post-graduate course at the Post-graduate Medical College of New York. When he left Boston in 1871, he went into partnership with Dr. Swett in Newport.

C., and Miriam. Miriam became the wife of Frank Smith, of Michigan. Mr. Converse was brought up in Lyme, where he was educated and where he became a clerk in a general store. He came to Newport in 1849, and in 1859 he engaged in the drug business for himself. This he continued until 1893, when he sold out to take charge of the post-office of the town. In 1848 he married Amanda Tibbetts, who was born in New York State. They have had five children: Alzira, who died at the age of fourteen years; Hattie, who became the wife of E. B. Temple, and died at twenty-nine years; Annie M., the wife of Dr. Currier; Sarah, the wife of David Leach; and Eleazar C., Jr., an electrician of Boston. The Lyme.

Ebenezer Bailey Currier was but three years old when his father died. He received a good district schooling, attending school from seven to eight months in a year. When he reached the age of sixteen he became an apprentice at the carriage trimmer’s trade in Amesbury.. He served five years at twenty-five dollars per year; but by overwork he earned extra pay, so that at twenty-one he had saved two hundred dollars besides clothing himself. His ambition excelled his strength, however, and he was obliged to give up the business. He subsequently became a salesman in a furniture warehouse in Lowell, where he was employed three years; and later he was a carpet salesman two years. He next set up in the shoe business in Lowell; and in September, 1847, he started a similar store here in Lawrence where he was in trade up to 1852, when he sold out. For two years, 1853-54, he held the office of Assessor; and in 1855 he was elected County Commissioner, in which capacity he served until 1861, when the war broke out. On accounty of his age he was unable to go to the front. From that time on until his final retirement from the activities of life Mr. Currier was principally interested in the insurance and real estate business. He, however, found time for public service during that time, and was appointed inspector of the Tewksbury Almshouse, a State intilution. In 1852 he was a member of the State legislature, and it was largely through his endeavors that the courts were removed from Ipswich, and present court-house built.

On June 2, 1840, Mr. Currier was married to Abigail O. Emerson, of Lowell, Mass. She died September 19, 1841, aged twenty, without issue. He afterward married Mary W. Heald, who was born in Carlisle, Mass., September 4, 1814, daughter of John Heald and a descendant of Revolutionary stock. One daughter has blessed this union, Francette Elizabeth, born August 24, 1845, who married on September 12, 1872, John S. Gile, of Lawrence. She has no children. In 1855 Mr. Currier purchased for eight hundred and forty dollars an acre and three-quarters on Prospect Hill, where there were than only a few old, small houses. Eight years later, in 1863, he erected the fine larg dwelling which is his present home. It sets well back from the street, and is reached by a circular driveway. In front is a beautiful evergreen grove. The grounds are further beautified by the fruit and ornamental trees which he planted before building his house. Mr. Currier cast his first Presidential vote for William Henry Harrison, and has been a Republican from the organization of the part. When living in Lowell he became a charter member of a new lodge of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, and was one of its most generous supporters as long as he remained there. Through his strong frame is somewhat bowed by his eighty-five years, Mr. Currier still retains his mental faculties remarkably.
