Birth: Apr. 29, 1860
Windsor County
Vermont, USA
Death: Mar. 20, 1936

Ashbel G. Coolidge, son of Lorenzo G. and Nancy (Crossman) Coolidge, was born in Andover, Vt.
He came to Reading with his parents in 1871, and came under the observation and training of Mr. Gilbert A. Davis; who saw in him those sterling qualities that have resulted in making him the successful and respected man that he is. For a long time, Mr. Davis gave him private instruction, and influenced him to go forward and procure an education.
He studied at Goddard seminary, at Barre, Vt., and studied law in Rutland. Mr. Coolidge was thrown upon his own resources to secure the funds required to pursue his studies; and by work during vacations, by teaching public schools, and evening schools at the House of Correction, he succeeded in securing the necessary funds for pursuing his chosen line of studies, and was admitted to the Bar of Vermont. He located at Rutland where he has continued to reside, and has an extensive practice. He was Messenger in the Executive Department, under Gov. Ormsbee, in 1886, and Assistant Secretary of the Vermont Senate in i896-98.
Mr. Coolidge married Miss Smith of Woodstock, and one son, Paul, is the result of their union. (from "History of Reading, Windsor County, Vermont, Volume 2" by Gilbert A. Davis. Pub. 1903)
