Handel Naphtali Daggett is a manufacturer. Has been selectman and representative. His home is an elegant estate at Attleboro Falls, which was formerly the homestead of Deacon Mayhew, the three Elihus, and Rev.Lyman W. Daggett.

Mr. Daggett died February 27, 1894, aged exactly seventy-three years and one month, after an illness which for more than a year had exhibited symptoms of a markedly serious and at times imminently fatal nature, and frequently been attended with attacks of extreme suffering, which were borne with the quiet fortitude characteristic of his family. For a long period he had had the management of large business interests of his own, and during the later years of his life especially he had become identified with various enterprises and held responsible offices in numerous business organizations, both in town and elsewhere. "At the time of his death he was a Director of the First National Bank of Pawtucket and the North Attleboro National Bank of North Attleboro, President of the Industrial Mutual Fire Insurance Co. of Boston, Vice-President of the Cotton and Woolen Manufacturers Mutual Fire Insurance Co., Treasurer of the Attleboro Branch Railroad, and held positions of trust in various other concerns. He was also a member of the Boston Home Market club, and of Squantum club and other social organizations."

Lengthened words of praise are not needed in writing of Mr. Daggett, for his life is well known to his fellow-townsmen, and the great business he built up, the church he so materially assisted, and the results of his many generous acts are better memorials than any printed eulogies. His funeral was attended at his residence on March 3, the presence of many friends and offerings of beautiful flowers testifying to the estimation in which he was held. He was buried in Mount Hope Cemetery. Another prominent, honorable, and much-needed citizen has passed away, and alas! another who leaves behind no son to bear his name.
