AARON LUFKIN KELSEY
It is give to but few men so near to approach the century mark as did Aaron Lufkin Kelsey, who died in Toledo at the age of ninety years, after having been closely associated with commercial life and development of the city for sixty-three years. He was indeed a familiar figure in the business circles of the city and Toledo in many ways found him a benefactor, as his activities contributed in substantial measure to her growth and improvement. Mr. Kelsey was born in Guilford, Maine, July 12, 1823, and was of English and Irish lineage, being a grandson of Joseph Kelsey, who settled in Massachusetts in young manhood, becoming one of the residents of that state during the colonial epoch in its history. His son and namesake, Joseph Kelsey, removed to Maine about 1800, settling at Guilford, where he became a prosperous and prominent citizen. he represented his district in the Maine legislature for thirty years and was active in framing the constitution of that state in 1820.
Aaron L. Kelsey was on of a family of nine children and the last survivor, having outlived his brother, Joel W. Kelsey of Toledo, for a period of ten years. In his youthful days he was given the advantages of a good education, being graduated as a surveyor from the Foxcroft Academy at Foxcroft, Maine, while his efficiency secured for him an appointment as government surveyor when but nineteen years of age. In that capacity he had the distinction of assisting in running the national boundary line in 1843 as established by the Webster-Ashburton treaty. For three years his life was fraught with great privation and toil as he followed his profession in the wilderness of the north, but the outdoor experience also brought him rugged health and much knowledge concerning the out-of doors.
His entire course was characterized by the faithful performance of his duties and these three years were a fitting prelude to a long, honorable and useful career.
Mr. Kelsey arrived in Toledo in 1850, finding here a struggling frontier village. For six years he was interested in lake navigation, being associated with Darius Cole of Detroit in building the Northerner, the first passenger boat that went up the Great Lakes. It was sunk, however, on its initial trip just beyond Port Huron after being rammed in a fog. Mr. Kelsey in 1856 entered into partnership with Nathan Reeve, under the name of Kelsey & Reeve, for the conduct of a lumberyard, for which there was a splendid field, owing to the fact that the adjacent state of Michigan was rich in its great forests of hardwood and of white pines. Their wharf and lumberyard was on Water street, north of Cherry, where their business grew rapidly. In that business Mr. Kelsey continued for thirty years, the firm style becoming Kelsey-Lawton & Company in 1868, and upon his retirement in 1886 he was succeed by his son. H. Reeve Kelsey, who formed a partnership with George L. Freeman, the business being then carried on under the style of Kelsey & Freeman. For three decades, however, Aaron L. Kelsey had figured as one of the most prominent lumbermen of the city and contributed in large measure toward making Toledo one of the lumber trade centers of the middle west. In 1873 he became associated with others in the purchase of the Milburn Wagon Company, of which he remained a director for an extended period, while at the time of his death he was one of the large stockholders of the company. Into still other fields he directed his labors, being a director of the Merchants National Bank from its inception until his retirement from active business life. In Waggoner's History of Toledo and Lucas County it was said "Mr. Kelsey has been among the foremost citizens in public spirit, ready to cooperate in whatever promised the public welfare." He withheld his aid and support from no movement for the general good and he was one of the organizers of Toledo's third Board of Trade, which constituted an important and vital force in promoting the early business and industrial development of the city.
In 1854 Mr. Kelsey was married to Miss Helen M. Lawton of Cape Vincent, New York, whom he survived for twenty years. To them was born one child, Hiram Reeve, who is mentioned elsewhere in this work. One of the local papers, following the death of Mr. Kelsey on October 25, 1913, said of him "He will be remembered as a quiet and retiring gentleman of kindly nature and a quick and lively intellect. In this death there passed away one who in his lifetime contributed his full share to the development and progress of his day and generation." Mr. Kelsey erected the house at No. 1729 Summit street, which was his residence for fifty-two years, or until his death.

HIRAM REEVE KELSEY
Hiram Reeve Kelsey was for many years a conspicuous figure in connection with the lumber trade and manufacturing interests of Toledo. A native son of the city, he was born January 1, 1859, his parents being Aaron Lufkin and Helen Mar (Lawton) Kelsey. A sketch of the father will be found elsewhere in this publication.
Hiram Reeve Kelsey received his education in the schools of Toledo and in the Shattuck Military School at Faribault, Minnesota, which he attended for five years. When his textbooks were put aside he immediately became associated with his father in business and thoroughly acquainted himself with every pase of the interests with which the father was identified. In 1886, at the time of his father's retirement, he formed a partnership with George L. Freeman, under the name of Kelsey & Freeman. The firm developed a business of extensive proportions over a period of thirty-one years. Mr. Kelsey had gone to Canada to buy lumber when he became stricken with an illness that terminated his life, on the 12th of June 1917. The business was reorganized in 1918, under the firm style of The Kelsey & Freeman Lumber Company. He was also a director in the Milburn Wagon Company. he was for a time a vice president of the Merchants National Bank and also of the Peoples Savings Bank, in which position he served at the time of its organization. Honored and respected by all, he occupied a most enviable position in the commercial and financial circles of the city not alone by reason of the success he attained but also owing to the straightforward business policy which he ever followed. It is true that he entered upon business enterprises already established by his father, but in enlarging and controlling these he manifested the progressive spirit of the age and adopted the most advanced commercial methods. He possessed initiative and energy and obstacles and difficulties in his path seemed but to serve as an impetus for renewed effort on his part, leading ultimately to success.
On the 16th of October, 1883, in Toledo, Mr. Kelsey was married to Miss Alice Gladstone Young, a daughter of James and Mary (Sherret) Young, both of whom came from Scotland and eventually took up their abode in Toledo, where Mr. Young was a contractor and builder. Mr. and Mrs. Kelsey became the parents of seven children: Helen, the wife of Clement E. Chase, Aaron Lufkin (II), who is vice president of The Kelsey & Freeman Lumber Company and who married Eleanor Kinsey, Mary Isabel, the wife of John D. Biggers, Alice Reeve, the wife of Russell Cooke, Katharine, Grace Secor, and Florence. While Mr. Kelsey belonged to the Episcopal church, he attended services at the First Congregational church. He was well known in social circle, having membership in the Inverness Club, the Toledo Club, the Mullet Lake Club and the Middle Bass Club.
An appreciation of Mr. Kelsey's worth and character was written by his old-time friend, W. E. Ketcham, as follows: "Suddenly and without warning came the passing of our old friend, H. R. Kelsey, bring the numbing shock and then the dull pain that will endure for so long for those near him. When the shock has passed we may look upon his death as of one who fearlessly embarked on the 'Great Adventure,' leaving sorrowing friends but many pleasant memories behind him. The writer recalls him as a jolly, rollicking boy in the old homestead in lower town, when the yard sloped down to the river and quiet and serenity reigned. The Toledo in which he was born was a village nestled in the trees and as it grew he grew with it. The writer recalls him as attending the old Bush street school long since abandoned. he recalls particularly that sweet and gracious lady---his mother. His career in business has been successful and beyond reproach. It was characterized by inflexible and unwavering integrity. His home life was ideal. Few that experienced it can forget the splendid hospital of the home on lower Summit in which the host and hostess beamed with kindness and graciousness--surrounded by a charming family. No one can forget his merry humor and good-natured jests. It was a distinct privilege to be there. His business of lumber buying took him to the remote places. he died in the little town of Spragge, Ontario, on the north shore of Georgian Bay, where he often went. It was noticed by those whose sad duty it was to go there to bring back his earthly form that everyone knew him pleasantly and spoke through tears, of his passing. In the lumber woods there will be many a tear brushed from the rough cheek of a 'lumber jack' when they speak reverently and lovingly of his kindliness and justness and the tear and the thought will be sincere. One of the gentle sides of his character was his genuine love and appreciation of art. To those who knew him intimately it was a matter of wonder when he could find time in a busy business life to acquire such a wide and accurate knowledge of pictures. He collected many beautiful examples. His life was round and full and he left the goblet nearly brimming. We who only wait a time for sailing bespeak a pleasant voyage for him."
