Biography of Jabez Parkhurst
Franklin County, NY Biographies





Jabez Parkhurst, born in Sharon, Vt, October 24, 1785, was graduated from the University of Vermont in 1810, and, having been admitted to the bar in 1814, located soon afterward at Fort Covington. He was for a time a teacher in the old Harison Academy at Malone. A virile, positive character, and well grounded in the law, he made his mark as a practitioner and in all of his relations as a citizen. He was an extremist in almost everything, and was elected to the Assembly in 1833 and 1834 as an anti Mason, and was the unsuccessful candidate of the Liberty party for the same office in 1844. He was a militant abolitionist, and often harbored runaway slaves at his home. He died October 31, 1865.
