BIOGRAPHY - by Silence Jane (Brackett) SOULE:
Ivory Brackett was born November 25, 1788,
at Shapleigh, York, Maine.
His father removed to Wolfeboro in New Hampshire; where Ivory grew to manhood.
After the birth of his second child at Wolfeboro, he removed to Bingham in Maine, then to Blanchard in Maine, back to Bingham, then to Waterville where he died August 23, 1869.
He was a man of most sterling qualities; of a very mild disposition; bearing anything rather than complain or quarrel; he was most uncompromising in a struggle for the right.
He had a most generous heart, always keeping open house for all, yet so inflexible was his rule for Sabbath observance that invited guests got only lunch - no cooking or unnecessary work ever being done on that day.
In religious belief he was a Free Will Baptist, and at the time of his death was church deacon.
He was very active in the so-called Washingtonian temperance movement.
In person he was above the average height;
in his youth he was six feet of commanding presence, prominent features and dark sallow complexion.
I believe it was true of my father that 'none knew him but to love him,' and I am proud and glad to tender this tribute to his memory.

Son of Daniel BRACKETT
{born - March 2, 1750
at Berwick, York, Maine}
