G.W. Davenport

George W. Davenport died at his home in Greenfield, Mass., Sunday night. George White Davenport was born in Leyden, Mass., the son of Calvin and Lucy (White) Davenport. He attended the schools of his native town, and later went to Powers Institute at Bernardston, Mass., where he paid his own way by working out of school hours. He studied law in the office of his brother at Wilmington, being admitted to the Windham County bar in 1865, and to practice before the supreme court in 1870. From Wilmington he enlisted in Co. F, 6th Regt., Vt. Vols., in 1862. After four months service he was injured by a forced march from Camp Vermont near Alexandria, Va., to Fairfax Court House, and suffered partial paralysis of his legs. He located in Brattleboro in 1870, and practiced law there nine years. After leaving Brattleboro he lived in Leyden and Bernardston previous to going tp Greenfield. He was a member of the board of overseers of the poor at Greenfield for several years.
