Biography

Hebard, Salmon B., son of Hon. William Hebard, was born Nov. 15, 1835, and was educated at the Orange county grammar school of Randolph, and at Chelsea Academy.

He entered his father's office as a law student when he was nineteen years of age, but at twenty-one he was appointed clerk of Orange county court and held that office until 1860. He was admitted to the bar in 1861. In the fall of that year he enlisted and was made 2d lieutenant of the 1st Vt. Light Battery and served in the Department of the Gulf until November, 1863, when he returned to Chelsea and resumed legal practice, soon forming a partnership with his father which continued until the death of the latter. He has been town agent ever since 1875, and deputy clerk of Orange county court most of the time since 1860, and on the death of Hon. L. G. Hinckley in 1887 was appointed clerk. In 1880 he was elected state's attorney for Orange county and in 1884 senator.

Mr. Hebard is an earnest, reliable man of good judgment and ability.
