Biography of Hiram A. Balch

Hiram A. Balch was evidently a merchant/businessman in Trescott, Maine. Evidence indicates that he may have dealt in general merchandise, foodstuff, and supplies, along with major trade in lumber. Numerous papers covering the cutting, surveying, shipment, and sale of lumber are present throughout the collection. Balch traded extensively with merchants in the Boston/Portland area. As his business grew Balch chartered, and eventually owned, several vessels (primarily schooners) which carried his lumber and other goods. He owned, and perhaps may have built, the schooners AUGUSTUS, BENJAMIN, PERU, SUSAN STURGES, and the brig HANNAH BALCH, during the 1840's-1850's. Between 1828-1844 Hiram Balch was active in Trescott's civic affairs, first as a Collector for highway taxes, and later as Town Tresurer. He was also certified as a Justice of the Peace in 1842. The Balch family was well represented in Trescott and in neighboring Lubec. Items relative to Charles Balch, John Balch, Lafayette Balch, Horatio Balch, and Susan Balch, among others, are included in this collection.
