Description Leonard A. Saville.

"Leonard A. Saville was born in 1833 in Gloucester MA. In 1849 as a boy of 16 he made the trip around Cape Horn - for the California gold rush - the sea trip took 160 days. He later returned to Lexington - his father's home - and opened a grocery store. Soon after he went back to California. In 1873 he returned and entered into a partnership with Mr. B. C. Whitcher, in the grocery business, and in 1888 sold out to Mr. George W. Spaulding. He served many years as Town Clerk, as Town Treasurer, Assessor and Tax Collector. He was appointed Postmaster in 1901 and served for many years. A most lovable man, everyone took their troubles to him. He was always so busy assisting others in their affairs. Miss Cary depended upon him for much assistance. He held the absolute trust of every person in Lexington."
