Biographical Sketch of Leander S. Small

Leander S. Small, son of George and Orpah Small, was born in Morristown, December 3, 1820. He was educated to agricultural pursuits by his parents, together with such other knowledge as could be acquired in the common schools and his own reading. At the age of twenty-one years he entered the law office of Butler & Wilkins, of Stowe, Vt., where he remained until the June term of the Lamoille county court, 1845, when he was admitted to the bar. Since that time he has practiced his profession in the county, residing in Hyde Park since 1853. He married Cornelia M., daughter of Almond and Jemima Boardman, of Morristown, with whom he has passed a happy wedded life. Mr. Small is a man possessed of excellent qualities of mind and heart, a fact that his townsmen have not been slow to appreciate, as is attested by the many positions of honor and trust they have seen fit to bestow upon him.
