Ashfield — Lawyers

Extracted from "History of the Connecticut Valley in Massachusetts, Volume II," by Louis H. Everts, 1879.

      The lawyers who have practiced in the town have been much less numerous. One remained but a few months. The Hon. Elijah Paine spent his entire public life in the town, from 1793 to 1846, and died in that year at the advanced age of eighty-five. Hon. David Akin, now of Greenfield, and a former justice of the Superior Court of Massachusetts, practiced in town for a short time about the year 1833.
