Daniels, Alexander, Middlebury, was born in Lower Canada on October 16, 1822. His parents were Alexander and Mary (Treudeau) Daniels. He was educated in the schools at Canada, and when twelve years old he came to the States and settled in Peru, N. Y., and engaged in farming; went to school in winters; remained there until 1839, when he came to Middlebury and was engaged in farming there for two years. He served an apprenticeship of three years, learning the paper-making business with Solomon Parker, and followed this occupation for thirty-three years. He was married on September 5, 1841, to Harriette Gee. They have had eleven children born to them. He has, since giving up the paper trade, engaged in various pursuits, his latest being that of book agent, in which he has been very successful. He occupies a handsome place of two acres in the village.
Dewey, Homer W., Middlebury, was born in Whiting, Addison county, Vt., on May 10, 1828. His parents were Truman and Elizabeth (Pratt) Dewey. Truman Dewey was born in Connecticut, and came to Addison county, Vt., with his mother and her family about 1785, settling in West Salisbury, Vt., and cleared a place there. He was a farmer and lived in various towns, and was a justice of the peace for many years. He had a family of two daughters and six sons, five of whom are now living. He died on April 1, 1864. Homer W. Dewey was educated in the common schools and received a fair education, and was brought up to farming at home until he reached the age of twenty-one years, when he learned the painter's trade, a trade which he has followed ever since. He was married on March 20, 1857, to Eliza A. Woodcock, a daughter of Almon Woodcock, of Salisbury, Vt. They have had two children, one daughter and one son -- Clara (now Mrs. Arthur Peacock, a resident of Waterford, Wis.) and Earnest T. (who resides with his parents). Mr. Dewey came to East Middlebury in the spring of 1874, where he has since resided. He is one of the prominent men of his town.
