"James Gifford, born here in June, 1821, is the youngest of the four children—who reached maturity—of Benjamin Gifford, a Quaker, who, about 1807, came to Provincetown from Rochester, Mass. James Gifford was whaling one voyage while a lad, but has during his whole life been closely identified with the business and public interests of this town. He has been two terms county commissioner and five years in the state legislature, and twenty-four years deputy collector of customs at Provincetown. He rebuilt "The Gifford House" in 1869."
