BIOGRAPHY

BURT JOSEPH CHAMBERLIN was born in Middlesex, Vt., August 29th, 1842 and have always led a farmer's life in Middlesex, that being still my address. When President Lincoln's call for 300,000 men came my father said to me, "One of us must go." I enlisted in Co. B, 13th Vt. Vol. from Middlesex. I remained with my regiment until we were mustered out at Brattleboro, Vt, July 21st, 1863. I was not absent from my company one day during the time. History tells of the part our gallant old 13th took at the battle of Gettys- burg and I have not forgotten the awful carnage of that battle. I was in the charge against General Pickett.

March 8th, 1865, I married Miss Verona V. Vaughan, also of Middlesex, Vt., who was born in Pomfret, Windsor Co., Vt., January 4th, 1846. Four children were born to us (all of whom are living) as follows: Rufus N., born January 24th, 1869; Wells J., born December 8th, 1872; Edwin B., born March 3rd, 1875; Mary A., born May 1st, 1877; all born in Middlesex, Vt. My father, Solomon Wells Cham- berlin, was born in Greenfield, Mass.. March 21st, 1807, was a farmer; died November 29th, 1871. My grandfather, Rufus Clesson Chamberlin, was born in Durham, Conn August 31, 1770. Died in Middlesex, Vt., March 12, 1855.
