BIDWELL, Marshal S., lawyer, born in New England in 1798" died in New York City, 24 October 1872. At an early age he removed to Canada, where he practiced law, rose rapidly in his profession, and entered political life while still a young man. He was returned several times from Kingston and Toronto to the Canadian parliament, and during two terms was speaker of the house. He was leader of the liberal party previous to and during the rebellion of 1837, and became so formidable to the government that he was ordered to leave Canada. He accordingly removed to New York City, where he subsequently practiced law in the higher courts and was considered one of the ablest and best men at the bar. He was at the time of his death president of the oldest savings-bank in New York City, a director in the American Bible society, and a prominent member of the historical society, before which he delivered an address a short time before his death.
