Major William Henry Harrison Holton
Major William Henry Harrison Holton, Deputy Surveyor of the Port of New York, died Sunday at the residence of his son-in-law, E.D. Washburne, in Dean Street Brooklyn. Major Holton was born at Jamaica, Vt. He enlisted as a private in the Eighth Vermont Regiment for the civil war, and later was made Second Lieutenant for bravery. He was wounded seven times at Raceland, La., when the train on which his company was moving south was ambushed. He was discharged in 1868 with the rank of Brevet Major.
He was appointed an Inspector in the Customs Service in 1879, and was made Deputy Surveyor in 1901.
