Aaron was born in 1761. He passed away in 1841. He was one of the selectmen chosen at the first town meeting, held in Wayne, Maine April 2, 1798, and in later years was repeatedly chosen for the most responsible offices in the town. He was a man of intelligence, but was never connected with any of the religious denominations. Indeed, when called a Deist he never refused the title, though he professed his belief in a personal God and an immortal life. His wife was a member of the Baptist Church, respected and loved, from its organization to the close of her long and useful life. Much as he and she differed in their religious opinions, they heartily agreed in the moral and education training of their children. This was strict, but gentle and indulgent. It is noteworthy that so large a family, brought up under religious instruction so widely different at home, and under so little apparent restraint, would have been so well established in all the moral virtues, and that no taint of dishonesty or intemperance should have been developed in any of its members. A number of his rules for his children are preserved by them with pious veneration, and indicate a high moral principle connected with profound affection and good sense. They had twelve children, nine of whom were living in 1888.  He is buried at Wayne, Maine.
