Alfred D. Stetson was born in Brunswick and educated in its public schools. At the age of sixteen he commenced work in the furniture business, in which he has ever since been engaged in this city, with the exception of one year, when he was in the army at the time of the War of the Rebellion, having raised a company at Brunswick in 1862, in which he became second lieutenant.
