About Winfield Scott Kilton, Sr.

Civil War: Sergeant Company H, Rhode Island Volunteers (Ref: 7th Regiment of RI Volunteers ) Winfield Scott Kilton, son of George B and Harriet W. Kilton, was born in Lonsdale, RI, Nov. 10 1843. While yet a youth his family moved to Providence where he entered the English department of the high school, which he left to enlist in the Seventh. At the close of the war he entered the dry goods store of Amos Aldrich, of Providence, as a bookkeeper. Naturally he became acquainted with his daughter, Katie Jordan Aldrich, whom he married April 26, 1866. She survives him with ten children. When his farther-in-law retired from business, Mr. Kilton went to Southbridge, Mass and entered the store of J. S. Gleason. After five years, he resigned to accept a better position in the office of the Central Mills Company. The change had a bad effect upon his health, and after a few years, he resigned. He recuperated but slowly, yet when health permitted, became a bookkeeper for the Southbridge Printing Company, with which he remained until March, 1890, retiring only when positively commanded to do so by his physician. H died on the tenth of the next July (1891). His funeral was attended by the Malcolm Ammidown Post, Grand Army of the Republic, the Quinepaug Lodge, Ancient Free and Accepted Masons, and the Southbridge Lodge, Independent Order of Odd Fellows. His remains were taken to his native state (Rhode Island) for interment. Woodland Cemetery, Coventry, Rhode Island........Posted by James, 1-28-2014
