MARYLAND MANUAL. 49

CARROLL COUNTY—Four Members.
JAMES W. TAYLOR.

Mr. Taylor was born October 23, 1839, in Howard
county, near Laurel, and is 58 years old. He moved to
Carroll more than 50 years ago. He was a war Demo-
crat, and enlisted as a private soldier in the Third Mary-
land Regiment, serving 10 years as a member of Com-
pany G, and was in the battles of Chancellorsville and
Gettysburg, besides several smaller engagements. He
was honorably discharged, and returned to his home in
the Fourth district of Carroll and engaged in merchan-

has since pursued that calling successfully. He was edu-

DANIEL J. HESSON.

Daniel J. Hesson is in his 37th year. He was born

clerk and salesman, where he continued three years. He

Harney, which he conducted successfully until last spring,
when on account of ill health he retired. He has been
an active Democrat and is popular with his party. He
held the office of postmaster at Harney during President
Cleveland's last term. His vote at the recent election
was the highest for any candidate on the House of Dele-
gates' ticket.

Alpheus Stansbury enjoys the distinction of being the
only Republican elected from Carroll to the House this
year. He was born near Hampstead in 1849, and comes
from a family of Stansburys who settled in that vicinity
over 100 years ago. His education was received in the
public schools. He was a young man when he became
the first enlisted soldier from his neighborhood as a
