Birth: 1765
Death: Sep. 19, 1788

son of Andrew Backus Esquire & Mrs Lois

Blest with a modest easy mien,
A head improv'd a soul serene,
Belov'd by all & heap'd with praise,
He liv'd his few ah too few days,
Know then alike are wind to dust,
The youth & the old the learned the just,
And that if worth from death
Backus had ever shamed the Grave.
Note: Birth date: 12 Apr 1765 Bio data: Having graduated from Dartmouth College a short time before, he died in a tragic sleigh riding accident. Source: Dana Converse Backus Genealogy - by Mary Backus 1949. Per e-mail Norris Taylor 2/25/2010
