    Charles Potter Maxson, son of John and Almira Tuttle [Taylor] Maxson, was born in the town of Brookfield, N. Y., Dec. 12, 1822, and died at his home in the village of Brookfield, Jan. 31, 1905, aged 82 years, 2 months and 19 days.
    Mr. Maxson was one of a family of four boys, of whom two are still living. He spent the greater part of his life on the farm between Brookfield and West Edmeston, where he was known as a very industrious and hard-working man. On July 8, 1847, he was married to Roxana E. Hibbard, who died Aug. 22, 1872. Two children were born to bless this happy union; Mrs. Vandelia Swancott, who is now living in Utica, N. Y., and Mrs. Chas Clarke, who lives on the farm between Brookfield and West Edmeston.
    On Aug. 14, 1873, he married his second wife, Mary M. Blanchard, who died Sept. 24, 1884. He married his third wife, Eliza Perry, Nov. 5, 1885, who still survives him. He moved to the village of Brookfield about 1870 and with the exception of a few years, when he resided at Verona, this village has ever since then been his home., and until about five years ago he has been a very active and hard-working man. During the last few years he has been subject to frequent paralytic shocks and heart disease, which with advancing age brought on his death.
    He was baptized and joined the church, Oct. 14, 1854, and always has lived an honest and upright life, very kind and hospitable to all of his neighbors and just in all of his dealings with his fellow men. H. L. C.
