Note on Husband: Seth Jones AXTELL

b. June 26, 1811, in Grafton, Mass. He married Lucy B. Stratton, Nov. 18,

1832, and d. at Grafton, April 10, 1880. Left at the age of thirteen without

a father and obliged as the oldest boy to be the support of the family, he

was unable to secure the education which he earnestly desired and which his

gift deserved. Most of his life was lived on the "Old Axtell Farm," but for

twenty years he was extensively engaged in the manufacture of boots and

shoes. Before he became of age, he saw the evils of intemperance, and from

that time on until his death he never used either tobacco or liquor. He early

identifed himself with the anti-slavery party, which in that day was very

unpopular. Later the tide turned, and he was elected from Grafton a member of

the Massachusetts House of Representatives, which sat in 1862. In church

relations he was a Baptist, having joined early in life the first church in

Grafton, Mass., and retained membership there until his death, except for a

time in 1840-1842 when he resided in Worcester. He was loved and honored by

all who knew him as a true man and a kind friend, steadfast Christian, a

generous giver, and a public-spirited citizen.
