Covel, Thomas D., son of Benjamin and Angeline (Baker) Covel, was born in Fall River, June 21, 1850. He attended the public schools of that city and later was graduated from Scofield's Commercial School at Providence, R. I. He then was employed for some time as a clerk in a grocery store owned by his brothers, subsequently securing a position in the office of the Troy Cotton and Woolen Manufacturing Company as an assistant. The following year (1873) he formed a copartnership for the conduct of a general hardware business with Mr. Sanford, under the firm name of Sanford & Covel. This association continued until 1884, when Mr. Sanford retired to engage in the manufacture of cotton goods and the present firm of Covel & Osborn was formed by the admission of James E. Osborn. This firm has since conducted an extensive business and for several years has made a specialty of manufacturing cotton banding. Mr. Covel is a director of the Arkwright Mills and the Troy Loan Association; president and director of the National Union Bank and trustee of the Union Savings Bank. In October, 1876, he married Betsey P. Gray, daughter of Franklin Gray of Fall River.
