Biographical Sketch of William E. Melendy

WILLIAM E. MELENDY, Son of Sibley, a soldier in the war of 1812, was born Jan. 2, 1819. In 1845, he removed to Springfield, N. H., where he shared in a good degree the confidence of the community. He was Postmaster six years, Selectman two, and Representative two. Since 1853, he has been engaged in mercantile business. In 1863, he moved to West Andover, N. H., where he now resides. He married Martha P., daughter of Ziba Cooper.

ELBRIDGE and ALONZO MELENDY, sons of John, after struggling against all the embarrassments of early poverty, settled at Cohoes, N. Y., where they have met with a deserved success. Alonzo carried off the medals at school, and fitted himself for a successful teacher-studying by the light of pine knots gathered in the woods.
