Author Code: ACWU

Born: May 4, 1802 - Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada

Died: Jun. 15, 1875 - Salem, Massachusetts, USA

Upham began working as an apothecary's apprentice in Nova Scotia until he immigrated to Boston in 1816. Educated at Harvard University where he studied theology, he was eventually ordained as a minister. He moved to Salem, Massachusetts and officiated as a minister there from 1824 to 1844. In 1826, he married Ann Holmes, the sister of Oliver Wendell Holmes. In 1840, he was elected to the Massachusetts State house of representatives and served until 1849. He the ran unsuccessfully for the U.S. Congress in 1850, but was subsequently elected in 1853 and served one term. He was then elected to the State senate in 1857 and served as its president. In 1859, he returned to the state house of representatives. Upham published Salem Witchcraft with an Account of Salem Village and a History of Opinions on Witchcraft and Kindred Subjects (1867), in which he proposed that Nathaniel Hawthorne's ancestor, John Hathorne, played a significant role in the persecution. The feud eventually resulted in Hawthorne's dismissal from the Salem Customs House. Besides many lectures, speeches and sermons, Upham's works include Principles of the Reformation (1826), Letters on the Logos (1828), Principles of Congregationalism (1829) and Life, Explorations and Public Services of John Charles Fremont (1856).
