Biography of Alfred Lemont
Sagadahoc County, Maine Biographies





Alfred Lemont was born in Bath, April 5, 1808, and married Miss Malinda Hoadsdon, of Wales, Me., in December, 1836. They have one daughter, Aramede Snow Lemont, who was born in Bath, February 9, 1845, and married Capt. Henry C. Tarbox in 1866, and they live in Bath. In his early life Mr. Lemont worked at the blacksmith business in Bath thirty years, when he relinquished it and commenced ship building. The first vessel he built was the schooner Eliza Ann, at a yard north of Thomas Harward's, in 1835. She was employed in the coasting trade, and eventually was lost on Seal Rock while endeavoring to make the harbor at Eastport, to which port she was bound to load with plaster. In 1835 he began building ships at Winnegance with Richard Morse & Sons, and continued to build with them until 1851, when he established a yard of his own in Bath, in which he built vessels until 1865, when he relinquished the business, but to the present time has continually owned in various vessels. He has been connected in banks in Bath twenty five years, as a director in the Sagadahoc National Bank and an incorporator in the Twenty five Cent Savings Bank. He is now living in retirement on a farm at West Bath, realizing a green old age, at a finely located residence, fronting the beautiful Campbells Pond.
