HAVEN, Solomon George, lawyer, born in Chenango county, New York, 27 November, 1810; died in Buffalo, New York, 24 December, 1861. His early life was spent in working on his father's farm. He obtained a good common school education, studied the classics under a private tutor, and began a course in medicine. This was soon abandoned for the law, and at the age of eighteen years he entered the office of Governor John Young, of Geneseo, teaching during the winter months to gain the necessary funds. In 1835 Mr. Haven removed to Buffalo, and completed his studies in the office of Fillmore and Hall. In May of the same year he was admitted to practice, and in January, 1836, became a partner with his preceptors in the firm of Fillmore, Hall and Haven. This relation existed several years, and until each member of the firm had attained national reputation. Mr. Haven filled the offices of commissioner of deeds, district attorney of Erie county, and mayor of Buffalo. He was chosen to congress as a Whig, and served three terms; in 1851-'7, exerting extended influence at an important and critical period of the history of the country.
