Biography of S. Dwight Stevens
Franklin County, NY Biographies





S. Dwight Stevens (father of Halbert D. of the Malone Farmer), born at Whittingham, Vt., in 1818, settled in Bangor, and then in Moira, where he remained until 1875. Mr. Stevens was one of the founders of the Republican party in the latter town, but in no sense as a politician. He believed in the new organization as he believed in Christianity, and for much the same reasons. Though without training as a public speaker, he espoused Republicanism and expounded its principles in every school house in Moira. In 1875 he removed to Malone, and engaged in merchandising for a few years. He was a man of intelligent and conscientious convictions, self poised, and highly respected. He died November 24, 1899.
