Rev. Benson Sewall1

M, #13283, b. 2 July 1862, d. 28 December 1887
     Rev. Benson Sewall was born on 2 July 1862 in Wenham, Essex County, Massachusetts.2 He was the son of Prof. John Smith Sewall and Louisa B. Benson.1 Rev. Benson Sewall drowned on 28 December 1887 in Hampden, Penobscot County, Maine, at the age of 25 whilst skating on the Penobscot.3 He was buried on 30 April 1888 in Mount Hope Cemetery, Bangor, Penobscot County, Maine, Lot Number, 3CG.4

"[he] ..... graduated at Bowdoin College in 1883. The death of his sister left him the only child of his parents. He early consecrated himself to Christ and to the Christian ministry. He spent four summers in the Summer Schools at Amherst, Burlington, and Boston, and two in Europe, going the second time for study in Germany. During the two years that intervened between College and Seminary he was Principal of the Academy in Shoreham, Vt., and entered upon his work there with the vigor of youth and the high aims of a Christian. His labors proved an inspiration not only to his pupils but throughout the community. Returning he entered Bangor Theological Seminary in the autumn of 1885, and would have graduated next June. At the close of his middle year he spent three months in home missionary work in Iowa, to which he devoted the energies of a robust body, a clear brain, an earnest purpose, and a warm heart. The results were remarkable, and the churches he served are praising God for his fidelity and success.

His youthful culture took a wide range, from such work as preparing the Index for Professor Harper’s Hebrew Grammar, to the study of art and music, of both which he was very fond. He was well read in the master minds of literature. He had for a long time purposed to offer himself to the Board for service as a foreign missionary. Three years of his college course and the whole of his seminary work were made to point steadfastly in this direction. But while yet his preparations were going forward, his Master has transferred him to another sphere, where his youthful promise will find fuller fruition, where his ardor will find larger scope, and where the Lord can make his ministrations - even perhaps to the pagan empires over whom his heart yearned - more effective than any service he might have rendered in a longer life below."2

WILTON – Calvin B. (Brackett) Sewall, 96, of Wilton, passed peacefully at daybreak on Thursday March 2, 2017. He was born on Sept. 15, 1920 on the family’s Keep Road farm in Jay. He grew up on the farm with his parents Herbert and Harriett (Brackett) Sewall and his sister, Mary. His family raised prize beef cattle and apples of many varieties that were shipped around the world.
He was educated in a one room schoolhouse in Jay and then moved to Wilton Academy for the upper grades. He graduated from WA in 1937. He then attended the University of Maine, Orono, where he earned a BA in economics, graduating in 1942.
During the summer of ’42, he worked at the Wilton Woolen Mill, making cloth and blankets for the US Army. He also served as a member of the US Ground Observer Corp., spending night after night watching the skies for enemy planes.
He joined the United States Army Air Corp in September of 1942, serving stateside in Florida and Wisconsin as a radio operator and mail room clerk. He separated from the Air Corp as a Sargent in 1946 and came home to Wilton, where his mother had moved, following his father’s death.
Using the GI Bill, he attended Columbia University Law School, graduating in 1948 with a LLB Degree and returned home, to Wilton. He passed the Maine State Bar and set up practice in downtown Wilton. He served Wilton and greater Franklin County residents through his legal practice for more than 40 years as well as serving as Clerk of Courts and as County Attorney.
He served his local community through active membership in the local and statewide Masonic groups (Masons, Knight’s Templar, Kora Shrine) and the American Legion.

Calvin was an avid tennis player and enjoyed long walks along the roads of Wilton. He would pick up bottles along the roadside to help keep his town clean. He enjoyed his time working the Lion’s Club book tent during their annual sale and the annual pancake breakfast. He also loved to show people the history of Wilton through tours at the Wilton Historical Museum. He loved to read, especially books about history and he studied politics. One of his favorite games was cribbage. He played every chance he could get, right up to the end.
Calvin was predeceased by his parents and his sister, Mary (Sewall) Cole. He is survived by his nephew Thomas Cole (Gail) of Florida ; his cousins, Susan Kaplan-Burgess and Andrea Kaplan who were his loving caregivers these last three years, and many other cousins.
