    Lawson Seagraves, for many years librarian of the Uxbridge Public Library, was born at Uxbridge, January 26, 1840. His education was acquired at the public schools of Uxbridge and in Rhode Island.
    Having learned the trade of machinist he engaged in the manufacture of needles, and although transacting a profitable business at the breaking out of the civil war in 1861, he suspended operations in order to join in the defence of the Union. Enlisting as a private in Company H, Fifteenth Regiment, Massachusetts Volunteers, he participated in the battles of Balls Bluff, Malvern Hill, the Wilderness and Antietam, in which latter engagement he was wounded, and he served in the army continuously for three years, acquiring an honorable record for personal bravery and the faithful discharge of his duties.
    Upon his return from the service he resumed his business as a needle manufacturer and continued it successfully for a period of thirty years. For the past ten years he has devoted much of his energy to the cultivation of his farm, an excellent piece of agricultural property situated upon the outskirts of the town, but he still retains his interest in public affairs, with which he has long been identified.
    For fifteen years he served with marked ability as librarian of the Uxbridge Public Library, but gave that up and now farms. He held the office of overseer of the poor for a number of terms, had charge of the school building and town hall, and in politics is an ardent supporter of the Republican party. He is a member of the Masonic Order, the Knights of Pythias and the Grand Army of the Republic.
