He was Deerfield NH's first recipient of the Boston Post Cane award in 1909. Boston Post bio: "Richard B. Currier. Deerfield N.H., 86 years. Richard Baxter Currier was born June 2, 1823 in Deerfield [NH]. For half a century "Baxter" Currier has been one of the unique characters of southern New Hampshire. His home, an estate of 175 acres, was years ago in the heart of a wild game country and many sportsmen knew "Baxter" as an efficient guide. He is a farmer by occupation. With intellect unimpaired, eye keen and penetrating, Mr. Currier is a ripe example of the hardy New England farmer of the passing generation who has "roughed it," and acquired a comfortable fortune. Although he has never used tobacco, he has drunk liquor throughout his life, whenever he wished. His longevity is attributed to a strong constitution, outdoor exercise and a simple life."
His death certificate states he is buried in Candia Village Cemetery.
