Obituary of David Booth, Class of 1819, in 1885 Yale College Obituary Record



Obituary of David Booth, Class of 1819, included in the June 1885 edition of the Obituary Record of Graduates of Yale College.  He was a farmer on the family farm at Longmeadow, Massachusetts.


The last few pages of this booklet are a Summary of the deceased graduates and an index, all pages of which appear at the end of this post.


Transcript

David Booth, the eldest son of David and Margaret (Colton) Booth, was born in Longmeadow, Mass., December 10, 1796.

After his graduation he taught for a while in Maryland and elsewhere, and studied law with the late Hon. George Bliss, of Springfield, Mass. His father dying in 1827, he returned to the old farm at Longmeadow, where he spent the remainder of his life. He married Ann Colton, of Longmeadow, in 1833, and died August 11, 1884, leaving no children.

He was a man of marked intelligence and strict integrity, and his quiet life was more than ordinarily useful to the community in which it was mainly spent.
