“Isaac M. Currier, of Bangor, is a son of William and Nancy (Henderson) Currier. They had eight children, of whom Isaac is the oldest. He was born October 29, 1816. His father was a manufacturer of linseed oil; he died when Isaac was six years old, and he was brought up by his grandfather on a farm until he was fourteen years old. At that age he started out for himself, and learned the joiner’s trade and mill work; he worked as millwright for about fourteen years in Bangor and Winterport. In 1845 he bought a tannery at East Orrington, which he carried on about eight years and then sold out. In 1859 he built the tannery in Bangor, since which time he has lived here and carried on the tannery business. Mr. Currier married Almatia Ware, of East Orrington, daughter of Captain Warren Ware. She died in 1866, and he married for his second wife Miss Helen A. Saunders, of Bangor. By his first wife he had six children, all of whom are deceased. Mr. Currier has been connected with the city government as Alderman and Councilman for several years; he is well known in this vicinity.”
