      Albion J. Mower, son of Jabez and Ruth W. Mower, was born in Calais, Vt., December 14, 1828, and died there in 1898. He attended the schools of his town and entered the University in 1848, remaining two years. He engaged in farming in Calais until his death, becoming the largest real estate owner in the town.
