HON. ARTEMAS LIBBY, born in Freedom, Me., 8 Jan. 1823; married, 27 Oct. 1847, LOUISA H. SNOW, daughter of Myrick and Sarah (Martin) Snow of Winterport. In the year 1840 he became acquainted with Samuel S. Warren, then practicing law in Albion. A son of Mr. Warren was then studying and reciting to his father, and the latter persuaded Artemas, who was about two years older than his own son, to enter his office and study and recite with him. In the next winter he taught a town school, and then returned to Mr. Warren's office, and began in the summer to read law, keeping up his other studies. He continued to study and read law there, except a few months in the winter occupied in teaching, until
the summer of 1844, when Mr. Warren removed to Massachusetts. He then entered the office of Z. Washburn of China, and read law with him the rest of the season. In that fall, 1844, at the age of twenty-one, he was admitted to the bar, and soon after opened an office in Albion. He continued there until his removal in 1848 to Augusta, where he has since resided.
