Nathaniel Gookin Upham

New Hampshire

"N.G. Upham, LL.D., was a native of Rochester, born in 1801. He graduated at Dartmouth College in 1820, and was admitted to the bar in Strafford County. He opened an office at Bristol, but afterwards settled in Concord. From 1883 to 1843 he was one of the judges of the Superior Court, and in 1853 was commissioner to London, 'for adjustment of claims between citizens of the United States and Great Britain, against the government of either country.' After his resignation from the office of Judge of the Superior Court he became general agent of the Concord Railroad, remaining in that position nearly to the close of his life. He died in 1869."
