  • Notes 
    • Frank Palmer Goulding was born in Grafton, July 2, 1837. His mother having died when he was two years old, he lived with his collateral relatives on the old Goulding homestead, to the age of seven years, when, upon his father's second marriage, he went to live with him, and continued to do so in Holden, Worcester and Grafton, until the spring of 1849, when his father dying he was apprenticed to learn the shoemaker's trade. He lived about four years in the family of Mr. Charles Mitchell, familiarly known as "The Doctor." In the spring of 1853 he removed to Worcester, and worked at his trade till 1857. His education, up to this time, had consisted of a few terms at the common schools of Holden and Grafton, and one term at the Grafton High School, taught at that time by the Rev. Mr. Wilson. The public libraries of Worcester, then every way inferior to those of today, had afforded him an opportunity to gratify a natural love of reading and study. In the fall of 1857 he went to Thetford, Vt., and in the Academy here situated fitted for college. Entering Dartmouth College in 1859, he pursued the regular course, and was graduated in the class of 1863. In September of that year he began the study of law in the office of Hon. George F. Hoar, and continued there, excepting one year spent at the Dane Law School of-Harvard University, till the April term of the Supreme Judicial Court, at Worcester, 1866, when he was admitted to practice. In the fall of the same year he went into co-partnership with the Hon. F. H. Dewey, then in large practice; and Mr. Dewey shortly after leaving the country for a year's tour abroad, Mr. Goulding was immediately afforded the opportunities and burdened with the responsibilities, of an extensive practice in all the courts. In 1869, Mr. Dewey was appointed a judge of the Superior Court, and Mr. Goulding formed a co-partnership with Hamilton B. Staples, and continues the practice of law. In 1877 and 1878 he represented the Twenty-third Worcester District in the House of Representatives. In March, 1870, he married Abbie B. Miles, of Fitchburg, and they have two children.
