Other Information

"MA Soldiers, Sailors and Marines in the Civil" states that Henry W. Horton enlisted in Co. G, MA 4th Infantry Regiment on 22 Apr 1861 and mustered out on 22 July 1861. The application for a military gravestone states that Henry was born 23 November 1838 and died on 5 Apr 1895. "Westporters in the Civil War", a typed manuscript authored by Andrew C. Macomber and Richard W. Wertz, in a list on page 64 entitled "Veterans from Elsewhere Buried in Westport" confirms Henry W. Horton's enlistment in the 4th Infantry. Henry Horton served as a private in the Civil War. He married Charlotte Almira Tripp in 1864 and the couple had three daughters. Henry worked as a silversmith and died in Somerville MA at the age of 56 in 1895. The cause of death was dropsy or excess fluid. His wife lived almost 20 years after Henry's death and is buried in the same plot but there is no stone to mark her grave. Research: L. Oliveira
