      Judge Edwin Horton

      Horton, Edwin of Chittenden, son of John N. and Elsie (Potter) Horton was born in Clarendon, August 25, 1841.

      He was reared among the usual surroundings of the youth in his time, dividing his time between an attendance at the common and select schools of Clarendon and Black River Academy of Ludlow, and labor upon the paternal homestead. Being desirous of a more extended education than that afforded by the course of study which he had pursued, he devoted much time to private research and reading. He settled in Chittenden in 1858, where he has principally followed the calling of a farmer, but has been obliged to devote much time to those official duties which his upright character and keen intelligence have brought to him. He has held at various times different town offices, especially that of lister. For twenty-three years he served as constable and collector, resigning these positions in 1893. He was the Republican representative of the town for three terms and in 1884 was elected Senator from Rutland county, and served on the committee on claims. In 1890 he was again complimented by an election as representative and in that session of the Legislature his previous experience placed him at once among the leaders of the House.

      Mr. Horton was married in Bethel, August 4, 1862 to Ellen L., daughter of Zenias and Harriet (Brown) Holbrook. Their children are: Bertha A. (Mrs. Harley Baird of South Boston), Fred E., Ida M. (Mrs. D.F. Spaulding of South Boston), and Hattie E.

      When the war which imperiled the existence of the Union commenced, Mr. Horton, although restrained by his parents, was resolved to participate in the struggle. He therefore deserted to the front and enlisted in Troy, N.Y., June 15, 1861, serving for one year in Co. G., 22 Regt., of that state and in 1862 was discharged from the U.S. service. (No record of this service is currently available.) When the draft took place in 1863 Mr. Horton was the only one of the fifteen drafted from the town whom fortune selected to fight for their native land, to fulfill this duty. He immediately joined the 4th VT Regiment and saw hard service in the battles of the Wilderness and at Petersburg and was twice wounded while in action, but remained with the regiment and was discharged when the regiment was mustered out in 1865.

      Mr. Horton has a large acquaintance throughout the state and many friends. He is a member of Roberts Post, G.A.R., of Rutland, and of the society of Vermont Officers. He has taken the vows of the Masonic Order, uniting with Otter Creek Blue Lodge, Davenport Chapter and Council, and Killington Commandery of Knights Templar and Mt. Sinai Temple; he is also a member of Killington Lodge, Otter Creek Encampment, and Canton Rutland of Odd Fellows.
