Mead, Benjamin Franklin, was born in Caroline, July 7, 1823, a son of Dr. Daniel L. Mead, who came to Groton in 1813, and thence went to Slaterville in 1820, being the first physician in the section.

He followed carpentry and building from early life to 1860, since which time he has lived retired. He built a great many buildings in the town, and especially in Slaterville, and he now owns and has worked the farm now occupied by himself, keeping a house keeper, he never having married. He supports the Republican party, though he has never aspired to public office.
