He was the third son of Ezekiel and Rachel(Thompson) Osgood, and was born in Swanzey, N, H, in 1838. His family moved to this place when he was only 4 or 5 years old, occupying the old hotel, and with the exception of a few years when he lived in Cambridge, Mass., his life was spent in Saxtons River.
He enlisted in Company A., Third Vermont Infantry June 1, 1861. He was promoted First Sergeant, and on July 21, 1863 was commissioned Second Lieutenant. He participated in several battles including Antietam, Gettysburg, Fredericksburg, and Wilderness. In the battle of the Wilderness he was slightly wounded, and he was honorably discharged July 27, 1864.
His first wife was Miss Emma Earle. He was a carpenter by trade, and was road commissioner 19 years. His health began to fail in the fall of 1903. In May of 1909 he married Vena Davis, who survives him. Since that time he has been confined to the house, and most of the time almost helpless.
