Excerpt from Centennial History of Alfred, York County, Maine

The following centennial history of Alfred was written by l)r. Usiier Parsons, a native of the town, who took pains, many years since, to collect accurate data. The publishers have thought it proper to insert the following notice of the author: -

Usher Parsons, M.D., youngest son of William and Abigail Frost (Blunt) Parsons, was born in Alfred, August 18th, 1788. His boyhood was mostly spent in that town, where he worked on his father's farm, and attended the village school. He went to Berwick Academy about a year. He began the study of medicine with Dr. Abiel Hall, of Alfred, in May, 1807. He attended anatomical lectures at Fryeburg, by Dr. Alexander Ramsey.

In the autumn of 1809, being disappointed in receiving funds to attend a second course by Dr. Ramsey in Portland, he walked about fifteen miles in the night nearly to Saco, slept a few hours on some hay in a barn, and reached Kennebunk the following noon, and Alfred in the evening. During the moonlight walk he meditated on the past and future course of his life. Though in his twenty-first year, with but limited education, he resolved that he would put forth all his energies for ten years to obtain the degrees of A.M. and M.D., and to become a teacher of anatomy. That resolution was the seed-pur-pose of his life.

He studied the ancient languages under Rev. Moses Sweat, and at intervals taught school. In 1811 he went to Boston, became a pupil of Dr. John Warren, and was licensed to practice in February, 1812. He began practice in Dover, N. II.
