Description:
Descon, William Scarsh (circa 1860's), Unknown author. "A Nineteenth Century Eccentric: The horse racing life of Fulwar Craven (1782-1860)". A 22 page manuscript, never published as we can find. Details the life and times of Fulwar Craven, a spectacular horseman, gambler and businessman in the sphere of horse racing in the UK. Also included is one colored image of Craven, the second earlier image of him as an officer IS NOT INCLUDED."Eccentricity was a favorite whim of the Beaus of the Regency- I had nearly laid prose, but I think it was something more than that- and eccentrics were to be found taking a prominent place in Society when the nineteenth century was well on its way. When they took in sport as they generally did, they were sportsman of the best and the hunting field and the race course owes many a stirring anecdote to men like the Earls of Barrymore and their contemporaries and immediate successors. A notable man in his day was Mr. Fulwar Craven of Chilton. He was a good all round sportsmen… Read more

Description:
Title: Eleazar Smith biographical sketch. Creator: Dickinson, Thomas A. Typed in Lawrence, Massachusetts while he was at Steelman & Fuller.
Inclusive dates: 1881
Abstract:The Eleazar Smith biographical sketch is Thomas A. Dickinson's 1881 transcription of Smith's memoir, originally written in 1828. Smith described his experiences as a militiaman during the Revolutionary War, as well as his work as an inventor and machinist in Medfield and Walpole, Massachusetts. Eleazar Smith was born in Medfield, Massachusetts, on April 1, 1755. He had little to no formal education and made a living creating and repairing clocks and other machines, such as devices for making pins and nails, and for setting card teeth. In the summer of 1776, he enlisted in the Medfield militia. He was initially stationed at Ticonderoga, New York, where he was court-martialed on suspicion of counterfeiting currency in the fall of 1776; he later participated in a march to Rhode Island, where he deserted in October 1777. Smith married… Read more
