Daniel Wilder

Daniel Wilder, son of Ivers and Abigail Chatterton Wilder, was born in East Wallingford, Vermont, November 1, 1843. He enlisted, at age 19, on June 16, 1862, and mustered in as a private in Company B, 9th Vermont Infantry, on July 9, 1862. He mustered out with his regiment on June 13, 1865. On June 25, 1870, Daniel and his wife Emma were living on a farm in Wallingford. He migrated to Keene, New Hampshire after 1880, and raised eight children. Daniel died June 11, 1935, and is buried in the Village cemetery at Surry, New Hampshire.

His older brother, Horace Judson Wilder, (24 Jul 1835 - 8 Dec 1895), served as a private in Company C, 11th Vermont Infantry. He is buried in Maple Grove cemetery, Wallingford.

Of note, the Wilder homestead still stands! Also, one of Daniel's grandsons, Clinton Wilder, was a Broadway producer; among his credits is "Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf," which won the 1963 Tony Award for best play.
