9 March i860; and was buried in Norwalk Cemetery. In November
1850, when less than nineteen years old, he became a partner with Hon.
A. H. Byington, in the Norwalk Gazette, and during Mr. Byington's
absence in Washington, nearly a year, "took entire charge of the office;
conducting the paper, not only with credit to himself, but with an accept-
ance to the public, that evinced itself in a large increase of business."
Early in 1853, he bought the Litchfield Enquirer, of Payne Kenyon
Kilbourne; and, as another editor said: " Never, probably, was there a
more marked illustration of the advantages an energetic, self-educated,
and practical printer possesses, in the successful conduct of a newspaper,
over the mere scholar and book-worm."
A long obituary notice in the Norwalk Gazette terminates with the
following estimate of his character:
" In every relation of life, as an apprentice boy, as our associate, as the
man of business, his marked characteristics have ever been the same—
faithful, earnest, and careful; with an amiability of heart which endeared
him to all; unostentatious and retiring, often too distrustful of his own
abilities ; ever more solicitous for the welfare and comfort of others than of
himself; and withal, so capable of usefulness, it seems, to our finite
wisdom, a mysterious Providence which has taken from us one so richly
endowed with so many of those qualities which adorn and bless mankind.'"

extracts from the Nonvalk Gazette indicate his standing in his native
town : " He has always participated actively in matters affecting the public
interests and welfare. In the church he made his personal influence felt,
and as a member of a political party was always zealous for its advance-
ment and ascendency. He was, for many years, a member of the
Whitney Family. 397
Republican Town Committee for this town, and his energy and zeal
added greatly to its influence and power. For many years past, he was
the Government Customs Inspector for this port, and was also a Registrar
of Elections. Earnest though he was and tenacious of his political pref-
erences, no opponent ever had cause to complain of the least unfairness or
desire to deviate from the strict line of right. His mind was cast in a
strictly Puritanic mould, and his probity, candor, and integrity were never
questioned. The stores in the Borough were closed one hour as a token
of the respect and esteem in which he was held by our business men."
His family were living in Norwalk, in Jan. 1875.

who were fortifying Jackson, Miss.; and Lieut. Walton was, at the request
of Gen. Parke, commanding the 9th Corps, temporarily assigned to his
staff, and, during the remainder of the campaign, was entrusted with all
verbal orders and messages passing between Gen. Sherman and the Corps
commander. In October he returned to the staff of the Second Division,
436 Seventh Generation.
then commanded by Gen. Hartranft; and when, at his own request, 3 Jan.
1864, he was relieved from staff duty and ordered to report to the com-
manding officer of his regiment, in New York, Gen. Hartranft took
occasion to compliment him as follows: " T h e General commanding
acknowledges, with gratification, the valuable services of Lieut. Walton,
while serving as Aide, and takes particular pleasure in mentioning his
handsome behavior at the battle of Campbell's Station, and during the
siege of Knoxville." After his regiment had recruited in New York, they
rejoined the 9th Corps, in East Tennessee; and, finding that it had just
been ordered east to join the Army of the Potomac, he returned to the
rendezvous, at Annapolis, Md., where he received a commission as captain
of his Company, with rank from 19 March 1864. After a forced march to
Washington, thence to Alexandria, and Fairfax Court-House, they joined
the Army of the Potomac the second time, the night before the Battle of
the Wilderness. Col. Bliss, having just been placed in command of the
Brigade, hearing of Capt. Walton's former experience as a staff-officer,
sent for him as his senior Aide; and, for fifteen hours, he he was in the
saddle, carrying orders and assisting in forming new lines during that long
and blood\- conflict.
He remained on the staff for a few days, till relieved at his own request,
that he might give his attention to his own Company. After this, he
took part in the battles of Spottsylvania, 12 and 18 May 1864; South
Anna, 27 May; Tallapotamy Creek, 3 June; and Cold Harbor, 7 June;
after which came the flank movement across the James, and the march on
Petersburg. He took part in a battle about a mile from that city, 17 June
1864-; and on his twenty-first birthday, 19 June 1864, he, with forty picked
men, under a severe fire from the Rebel sharp-shooters, marked out, and
held a line, on the crest of a high hill leading to the front picket-line,
which was soon developed into the well-known covered way, which at
different times, during two months, served as a shelter for more than thirty
thousand soldiers. He also took part, with the 9th Corps, in the charge on
Cemetery Hill, after the great mine was sprung, 30 July 1864; a n d in the
battle of Poplar Grove Church, 30 Sept. 1864, during the flank movement
on Lee's army. The death of his brother led Capt. Walton to resign, and
he was mustered out of service 6 Oct. 1864.
This gentleman has shown a most kindly and intelligent interest in the
progress of this work, and has contributed to it an admirably full and
accurate account of his own family and his immediate relatives on the
Whitney side.

a fur-dealer; married, 28 Ap. 1839, a t Fort Wayne, Indiana, Laura Louisa
Parsons, who was bora in Sandisfield, Mass., 27 Feb. 1823, dau. of Joseph
Gibson and Roxana Lucretia (Case) Parsons. He was first employed, as an
accountant, in Auburn, for two years, or more; then, for a time, in the same
capacity, in the State Prison at Auburn; after which he went to Cleveland,
Ohio, where he remained two years. Thence he moved to Fort Wayne,
Indiana, and there engaged in the dry-goods trade, continuing for seven
years, till the Spring of 1S42, when he removed to Oshkosh, Wisconsin,
and settled on a farm, which is now nearly in the centre of the city.
Here he engaged in the fur-trade, which, with other enterprises, occupied
his attention, till he died of consumption, at his residence on Algoma
Street, 6 Jan. 1869. The following extracts from an editorial notice of his
death, published in an Oshkosh paper, show something of his character,
and of the estimation in which he was held: " Probably the death of no
other person could create here a sensation so profound, and so sorrowful,
especially among the older residents of the city."
" The old log-house, in which he first lived, has been carefully preserved,
and still stands in the extensive and beautiful grounds which surround the
more modern dwelling. He was one of the sagacious few who early
foresaw the destiny of the spot on which a city has grown up around him.
During all the twenty-six years of his residence; in which he saw the
canoes and Indian trails, of the early days, disappear, giving place to the
steamboats and railroads, which the needs of an increasing civilization and
a growing population demanded ; and watched the wilderness become the
busy, thriving city; he pursued the even tenor of his way, foremost in
every good word and work; open-handed, generous, always dispensing an
unlimited and most hearty hospitality; the friend alike of old and young,
1
of rich and poor; respected by all; esteemed by a large circle of more
intimate friends; and warmly loved by the few on whom he lavished the
wealth of his great affections."
" During all his residence here, Mr. Wright has been extensively
engaged in the purchase of furs, and by steady attention to business, and
a keen shrewdness that was always mingled with his jolly, unfailing good-
nature, together with the increase in value of his real estate, he accumulated
j a respectable fortune, notwithstanding the heavy losses he experienced in
some public enterprises. His business frequenth' required tedious journeys
through the frontier settlements; and probably no man was so well known,
from the Wisconsin river on the West, to away up into the peninsula of
Michigan on the North, in city, town and hamlet, down to the settler's
rude cabin, or the ruder wigwam of the Indian in the still far woods; and
wherever known, he was trusted and loved, and his coming hailed with
delight."
He held the office of justice of the peace, and other County offices.
His widow was living at Oshkosh in 1874.

and afterward lieut.-col., of his regiment; and was killed in the battle of
Chancellorsville, 1 May 1863. A local paper said of him: " F r o m the
first he has been in the Army of the Potomac, and has participated in most
of the terrible battles between Washington and Richmond, and in the
neighborhood of the latter city. At the battle of South Mountain he was
severely, and at one time it was thought mortally, wounded in the arm
and shoulder, which for some time disabled him from active service. He
returned home for a short time on furlough; but restless and impatient to
be at his post, he hurried back long before his physical condition would
permit him to enter the field, disregarding the personal inconvenience
experienced from his own injuries, that he might give his personal atten-
tion to the wants and necessities of his fellow soldiers.
" He was a thorough disciplinarian; and as he yielded unquestioning
obedience to his superiors, so he exacted the same from his subordinates.
He was watchful of the interests and welfare of those in his command, and
he was always at his post when duty called him—whether it was one of
ease and security, or one of peril and danger.
" The name of Col. Scott deserves a prominent place among those who
have fallen in the present conflict. He died, like a true soldier, in the I
hottest of the fight, at the head of his regiment; and his remains now lie
in a soldier's grave, in the soil of the Old Dominion."

29 March 1871. He was living at 407 Whitehall Street, Atlanta, in Aug.
1875, and had charge of the Walker Street School. The following
extracts arc from his account of himself, as published in the Rockwell
Genealogy, pp. 31-33:
" In relation to myself I would say, after being brought up on my
father's farm in Cornwall, V t , I entered upon a college course of study,
Whitney Family. 573
graduated at Middlebury, V t , in 1834, at twenty-four years of age. I
immediately repaired to Norwalk, Conn., where I took charge of an
academy. In 1836, I entered the theological department of Yale College;
married in New Haven, Conn., 1837, Miss Lucy B. Fletcher, of the same
city.
" I then assumed the charge of an academy in Southington, Conn.; was
blessed, while there, with a glorious revival, in which nearly all my pupils
were converted.
" I n 1838, I accepted the secretaryship of the 'New England Sabbath
School Union.' Being troubled with a bronchial affection, I went south at
the suggestion of Dr. Jackson, of Boston. For two years, 1839 a n d 1840,
I had charge of the Female Department of ' Barton Institute,' Mobile, Ala.
Suffering there from yellow fever, I returned to Vermont, took charge, as
Principal, of the ' Literary and Scientific Institute' at Brandon, Vt. In
1843, I again went to Alabama, taught one year in 'Howard College,'
Marion; and in 1844, I went to Cahaba, Ala., and acted as Principal of
the ' Male and Female Academy' for a term of four years. In the Fall of
1848, I removed to Carlowville, Ala., where I spent four years in charge
of a Female Academy. Up to this time, I continued to preach as oppor-
tunity presented, but, by medical advice, I relinquished preaching
altogether, and in 1853, I assumed, as Principal or President, the charge
of the 'Masonic University' at Selma, Ala. This institution having failed
in its monetary affairs, I went again to Mobile, and for two years had
charge of the ' Latin High School,' the classical department of the ' Barton
Academy,' and at that time numbered among the public schools of the
city. In 1857, I went to Livingston, Sumter Co., Ala,, where for six
years I had charge of a very interesting Female Academy. Soon after
the breaking out of the war, I repaired again to Mobile, and invested all
my available means in the manufacture of salt; but this arrangement was
soon broken up by the surrender of the forts which guarded the entrance
of Mobile Bay. Being a non-combatant, I was again forced to leave the
city, and was a resident of Selma, at the time of the, destruction of that
city and its public works by the Federal forces under Gen. Wilson.
"All my worldly possessions having been destroyed by the misfortunes
of war, I was compelled, with my wife and only child (Henrietta Elizabeth),
to .begin the world again de novo. In 1867, I came to Atlanta, Ga., and
after spending four years teaching a private school of girls, in a brick
school-room of my own construction, I was called, at the inauguration of
our present public school system, to take charge, as principal, of Walker-
Street school, having something over four hundred pupils. This position
I still hold, and, although I find it to be a responsible charge for one of my
years (now sixty-two), yet it is a noble work, and one in which I trust, by
divine assistance, I may be able to do a great deal of good. My wife,
Lucy F. Rockwell, died of paralysis in this city, on the 29th of March,
1871."

They settled in Danbury.
He was an industrious and intelligent man, with not even common-
school advantages; but early formed the habit of reading—never sitting
down in the house without a book ; and often, after a full day's work,
spending half of the night in reading—and having the power to retain the
important part of what he read, his mind became remarkably well stored
with knowledge, which he was able to impart to others in the fewest
possible words. He was an early, enthusiastic, yet quiet Methodist; for
many years, an acceptable local preacher; and his influence did much to
build up the Methodist Episcopal Church in that region. He represented
Danbury in the Conn. Legislature for one year; and was, for one term, a
member of the Senate of that State.

and successful preachers in the denomination to which he belonged. The
Union Baptist Church was the first with which he sustained the pastoral
relation in this city (New York), and under his ministrations soon outgrew
its place of worship and erected the church on Stanton Street; that house
proved inadequate to accommodate the congregation he attracted, and
eventually the communicants could not find room. Necessity thus com-
pelled a portion of the church to withdraw, which they did with him as
their pastor, and purchased the church on the corner of Norfolk and
Broome Streets, which church he saw burned to the ground a short time
before he died. The congregation built on Norfolk Street, and in a few
years sold to the Methodists, and is now flourishing uptown as the 5th
Avenue Baptist Church. The character of Rev. Mr. Benedict was distin-
guished for its gentleness, meekness and patience, and yet possessed of
sufficient firmness to resist the encroachments of error. As a pastor, he
was to the aged a companion and friend, to the young an example and
adviser; as a preacher, he was faithful and prayerful, admonishing his
hearers with an earnestness that made him eloquent, and a kindness that
would have been closed against denunciations. As a man, he was kind,
forgiving, compassionate and just. In the social circle, his cheerful
disposition rendered him the joy of the household." He died 28 Oct.
1848, and was buried in Greenwood Cemetery. 1
