Gerry was the first person to represent MA-3...but his successors (there were apparently 2 of them) have some of the best old time white folk names ever: Shearjashub Bourne and Peleg Coffin Jr.!
We have a wealthy history of crusty old white guys with stick up their ass names.
Here are a few:
Endicott Peabody
Leverett Saltonstall
Increase Sumner
Levi Lincoln Jr.
Tristram Dalton
Prentiss Mellen
Rufus Choate

Increase Sumner. Now that's a name.

When you're born into a name like that, you're destined to rape and/or murder a servant, and the worst thing that will happen is a minor scandal for being unseemly about it.
He looks like the kind of guy who would have enjoyed hitting young children with his walking stick and scrubbing his body until raw with a horsehair brush to maintain his vitality.
He also looks like someone who was in "failing health" for the final 2 decades of his life!
Quite plausibly, he's 30 years old in that photo.

He either died from 1) typhoid fever 2) pleurisy 3) neuralgia 4) falling down the stairs 5) being injured in a carriage accident and then dying a lingering death spread out across a decade.

Little known fact - he is Sting's 6th great grandfather. In his seminal work, "The Coupleteer Miniaturist on the Hill," he described that, while the English DO differ in ideology from those in the colonies, it is not due to sharing the same biology. His fellow writers also found him to be an insufferable twat.

Hah.
Authority is supposedly grounded in wisdom, but I could see from a very early age that authority was only a system of control and it didn't have any inherent wisdom. I quickly realised that you either became a power or you were crushed

He would never have knowingly worn something made by the Chinese. The wage slaves of Manchester turn out much greater quality.

If you want quality, never buy your presidential halloween masks from a New England opium den.
