Marriages by Bailey From NEHGR - Old Age in Woburn - Newspaper Account of sons of Josiah Converse "Woburn, March 17, 1858. Mr. Editor: I saw in one of the daily papers, a few days ago a notice of an old man living in Woburn, named Converse, and thought I would give you a further description of the family. Jesse Converse, the oldest man in Woburn, was 93 years old last Feb. He was the third of seven sons, children of Josiah Converse. (His two older brothers were in the revolutionary war, one of whom was at the taking of Burgoyne). He is hale, hearty and bright. He has a brother, Joshua Converse, living about a mile from him, who was 91 years old last January, and who would, at reaping or binding stalks of rye, put many a man of half his years to thinking seriously whether he might not come out second best in a trial. He was a member of the Legislature in 1836. He has another brother, Luther Converse, who resides about half a mile from him, who was 81 years old last January, who is also smart and bright. They are all moral and temperate, but not total abstinents. In their religions opinions they are Calvinist Baptists. The oldest brother is a deacon. The second brother don't want that office, and the third won't have it. Politically they are hunker democrats of the straightest sect, and they can either of them give strong reasons for the faith that is in them, either religious or political. If there are three brothers in any town in the State, as old, bright, smart, moral and temperate, let us hear from them. Yours, C.D."
