Elbridge Gerry Stevens, Jr.
Elbridge Gerry Stevens, Jr., is a native of Dresden, Maine where he was born in 1850. His parents, Dr. E. G. and Alfreda M. Marson Stevens are natives of Maine.
His father began his medical practice in Mississippi about the year 1838, where he remained a few years, returning to his native State, locating at Dreslen, Kennebunk, and Biddeford, Maine, where he established an extensive practice, which extended over the States of Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts. He subsequently became a resident of Old Orchard Beach, where he is still engaged in active practice.
The subject of this biography graduated from the high schools of Biddeford, Maine, and at the age of sixteen entered Portland (Maine) College, and after finishing his studies there became a law student, continuing in the office of Hubbard & Wedgewood for two years.
He next entered commercial life, and was financier and bookkeeper of a large boot and shoe firm in Boston for over four years. Resigning he became cashier of the Standard Sugar Refinery of the same city, and acceptably filled that position for about five years.
Learning of the great development of Southern industries he came to Birmingham in the latter part of 1884, and in that short period intervening has established a name as one of the most enterprising of the young business element of the city.
Mr. Stevens purchased the fire-brick plant owned by Mr. DeBardeleben, and entirely reconstructed it, making additions and placing the most improved machinery, until now he lias a capacity of six millions of bricks annually, employing about seventy men. He meets all competition, and ships extensively to nearly all Southern sections.
In January, 1886, he formed his business into a corporation, and was elected president and general manager. Their plant consists of ten acres of land lying between Birmingham and Avondale, and the company also owns two hundred acres of valuable fire-clay land near the city.
Mr. Stevens has invented a fire-grate lining which commands great success. Besides being very handsome and ornamental, it reflects great heat, effects a saving of coal, and costs very little more than the common setting.
He has established a large number of branch offices in the leading cities of the Union for the sale of his fire-bricks, fire-brick tile, engine blocks, fire-clay sewer pipe, drain tile, lawn vases and pedestals, chimney tops, flue linings, street-paving bricks, red-pressed, ornamental and fancy, glazed and common encaustic tiling and terra cotta ware.
Mr. Stevens is a Knight Templar Mason, and a man who receives and commands the respect of his fellow-men, and in his private life is an accomplished musician and gentleman.
He was married in October, 1882, to Miss Mabel F., daughter of James L. and Amanda M., nee Pratt Hanson, of Boston, Massachusetts.
They are the parents of two children — James H. and Robert G.

Elderly libertarian: "Col. I wish to invite you to the next meeting of our Free Love association, where the shackles of marriage are not tolerated & perfect freedom exist in love matters and you will be sure to Enjoy yourself, for we are all Freemounters." Priest: "We look to you Sir to place the power of the Pope on a firm footing in this Country." Freedman: "De Poppylation ob Color comes in first. arter dat, you may do wot you pleases."
