Biography

NORMAN HOGABOOM was born in Highgate, Vt, September 1836. His parents were farmers. His training on the farm taught him habits of industry and economy. Before the war his residence was Berkshire, Vt., from which town he enlisted September 20, 1862, and joined Company G. While he remained in the service he acquitted himself with credit. He was a good soldier, obedient and faithful and won the respect and confidence of his comrades. But his military service was short. The hardships of army life undermined his health and on March 16th, 1863, he received his discharge on account of disability. His marriage to Susan Woodard occurred March 4, 1862, only a few months before his enlistment. His newly wedded wife gladly welcomed home the invalid and nursed him back to health. They both are blessed with length of days. After his service he took up his residence in Richford, where he now resides. He resumed farming. His fellow citizens have respected and loved him. He has held many of the offices and appointments in the gift of the town. He is no believer In race suicide. He has reared up a large family and lived to see his children married and settled in the world. They are Lora, Ethan, Albert, Horatio and Flora. The first three live in Richford, Horatio in Chelsea and Flora in Montgomery. Horatio married Carrie Woodworth; Ethan married Ines Combs; Albert married Pearl Fletcher; Flora married Charles Barnes. May his children and grandchildren gladden his age.
