Biographical Sketch of Samuel Powers

SAMUEL POWERS, Son of Col. Samuel Powers, a merchant and practical surveyor, had much native talent. He was one of the most successful teachers; had a clear intellect and a decided military genius, which was much improved by a thorough training at Norwich University. Few are the men who have more of the elements of popularity about them, or who have been more a favorite with their townsmen. Full of promise, he died in 1828, at the early age of thirtythree.
