From Edmund S Soper's Weymouth Ways and Weymouth People - Reminiscences, pub 1907
In 1854, the School Board was composed of these men : Dr. Appleton Howe, Noah Vining, John W. Loud, James Humphrey, Dr. J. H. Gilbert, Benjamin F. White, and Lemuel Torrey. These were men of note in the town.
The Selectmen were Noah Vining, Jr., James Humphrey, and Prescott Lathrop; Treasurer, Thomas Nash; Town-Clerk, Oran White. The three Selectmen were paid for their services 3.49 ; the Treasurer, ; the Clerk, ; and the School Committee, 6.
Abner Holbrook and Daniel Dyer were chosen Representatives, and Henry J. Gardner Governor. There are still some amongst us who will remember the great Gardner inauguration ball, held at the Town Hall, which was given by the Weymouth Band.
As I remember our townsmen fifty years ago, Adoram Clapp was our Representative in 1839 > mv father, Major Elias Hunt, in 1851 ; Charles E. Hunt was a delegate to the State Convention in 1852-3 ; Atherton N. Hunt was State Senator in 1860, and his son, E. Atherton Hunt, was a Representative, and a State Senator in 1875 ; Richard A. Hunt and Freeman Hollis were also Representatives. Strange to say, Nathaniel Hlanchard seems to have been the only one of the coterie who obtained no office. I am inclined to think that he cared little for office, but enjoyed going to the old shop, " Tammany Hall," and working for others than himself. The reader will notice that those who held the town offices seemed to be of our best people.
