Albert Everett Stetson was born in Braintree, Norfolk County, Massachusetts, May 2, 1826,
the son of Caleb and Susan H. Stetson, who removed to Boston a few years after his birth. In
Boston, his father was for many years a commission merchant and afterwards President of the
Shoe and Leather Dealers' Bank. His brother, Amos W. Stetson, is now President of the State
National Bank, Boston.
He fitted for college at the Leicester Academy, and entered with the class as a freshman. After
graduation, he studied medicine at Harvard; received his M.D. in 1849, and commenced practice
in South Scituate, Maryland. He served one year in the Legislature as a representative from that
town. Finding the long rides, incident to his profession, injurious to his health, he removed after
some years to Milton and continued in practice there until his death, which occurred in 1857.
He published one or more lectures. He attended the Orthodox Congregational Church. In 1852,
he married Miss Holbrook, the daughter of Henry J. Holbrook, Esq., of Braintree. They had two
children, Francis and Emma Stetson. The boy died when a few years old.
