Biography

Aaron was born in 1804. He is the son of Aaron Wing and Sylvina Perry. He learned the business of a machinist at Gardiner, Maine, and in 1828, in company with Hon. Franklin Muzzy, began business at Bucksport, Hancock County, Maine, but the next year they removed their machines and tools to Bangor, where they established a large and flourishing trade. Aaron married, Dec. 10, 1832, Eliza, the daughter of Robert Chase, of Dunbarton, Merrimack County, N. H., who died in Charleston, S. C., March 20, 1867. In 1835 Aaron Wing removed to Levant, Penobscot County, Maine and engaged extensively in the manufacture and sale of lumber and furniture. In 1850 he returned to Bangor, and in company with George and Isaiah Stetson, engaged more extensively in the same business. He was a member of the Governor's Council in 1838, and collector of internal revenue for the U. S. from 1862 to 1866. After the death of his first wife, he married Dec. 10, 1868, Sarah, a daughter of Henry Bryant, of Bangor, Maine. In person he was nearly six feet in height, and in his prime he weighed not less than 230 pounds.

[1] He was buried at Mount Hope Cemetery, Bangor, Maine. The gravestone reads: Aaron A. Wing, died Jan. 1, 1869. Ae. 65 years. [2]
