STETSON EZRA, M.D. whose portrait is given elsewhere, was born in Springfield, Otsego Co. N.Y. Sept. 10, 1813; his father's name was Jesse, the son of Ezra, who was the son of Ezra, who was the son of Anthony, who was the first begotten son of Cornet Robert Stetson, of Scituate, Mass. 1634, from whom are descended all of the name in America. They did not come over in the " Mayflower."

The subject of this sketch was the eldest of a family of thirteen children, and received a liberal education for a man of his time; served an apprenticeship as printer two years, when he commenced the study of medicine and graduated an M.D. in 1836-37 in the College of Physicians and Surgeons Western New York, at Fairfield; came west in 1837, and located at Galesburgh, Mich., where he remained eighteen years; was married June 17, 1838 to Jane, daughter of Joseph Miller, Esq. of Winsted, Conn, and has been blessed with five sons and one daughter; came to Bureau Co. in 1853. and bought the 1/4 sec. where now stands his Home; at this time he was worth less than $2,000, and this, as the good old doctor expresses it, consisted mainly in truck and dicker.

With undaunted perseverance he has steadily accumulated a large fortune, owning about 900 acres, and a finer stock farm can not be found in this section; he has devoted much of his attention to raising fine blooded stock, having crossed the broad Atlantic three years ago to secure the best breeding stock of draft horses in the old world.

He was a member of the Michigan Legislature in 1853, since which time he has dropped politics, being disgusted with the class of men who make our laws.

A bitter enemy of intoxicating drink of all kinds and tobacco in any form, the doctor enjoys the best of health, and has lived to see his family grow up around him, useful citizens of this "glorious republic." and a source of pride to their father, who now says he "only awaits the summons of the Grand Master of the Universe, calling him from labor to refreshment." "So mote it be."
