A. S. Beardsley


Mr. Beardsley was born in New Fairfield, July 22, 1818, and received a common school and academic education. 

In 1850 he removed to Texas and engaged in mercantile pursuits, becoming the active partner in the firm of Case, Beardsley & Co. He remained there until the death of his father necessitated his return north.

 For the last twenty-five years he has been in the employ of the Plume & Atwood Manufacturing Company at Thomaston, being engaged in the mechanical department. In 1874 he was elected president of the Plymouth Library Association, which has trebled the number of its volumes under his management. Mr. Beardsley held a commission in the old state militia. He is a prohibitionist in politics and a member of the Congregational church. 

His wife, who is still living, was Miss Jane Alcott of Waterbury at the time of her marriage. The family includes four sons and three daughters.
