Edward Ainsley Stockman (1821-1901), b. Poland, ME; d. Chelsea, MA. He was converted amongst the Methodists at about twenty years of age, and soon became a preacher. He was for many years a minister with the Free-Will Baptists, and was a noted abolitionist, some claiming that his home was one of the stations on the Underground Railway. He fell in with the Second Day Adventists sometime after the Civil War, and became a prominent Elder in that denomination.
