He was born in Northfield, this state, but for about 29 years he lived in this town, being employed by the Estey Organ company. From Brattleboro the family moved to Guilford, where they lived nine years, going to Springfield 12 years ago. About a year ago Mr. Carpenter, because of ill health, gave up a position in the United States armory, where he had been employed eight years. He enlisted from Northfield in Company F, 1st Vermont Regiment, May 2, 1861, and was mustered out Aug. 15 of the same year. He enlisted in Company C, 15th Vermont Regiment Sept. 11, 1862, was made corporal of the company and was mustered out Aug. 5, 1863. He was a member of Wantastiquet lodge of Odd Fellows of Brattleboro. Besides his wife Mr. Carpenter leaves eight children, Mrs. Henry H. Fletcher of Springfield, this state, Mrs. L. D. Franklin of Guilford, William F. Carpenter of Meriden. Conn., Henry W. Carpenter of Greenfield, Mass., Martin B. Carpenter of Spokane, Wash., and Mrs. Robert Kibbe, Fred B. Carpenter and Ralph S.
