    • Historical & Biographical Album of the Chippewa
      Valley Wisconsin, 1891-2

      Orrin Byington (deceased) was born at Woolcott, Conn., May 3, 1807, and died in Frankfort May 22, 1873. He was a son of Daniel Bhyington. When a boy he learned his father's trade, carpentering.

      He married Miss Rebecca M. Tuttle, and to this union were born two sons, Charles E. and LUCIUS E. The Byington and Tuttle families were both of English descent.

      About 1838 Mr. Byington removed to Bristol, Kenosha county, Wis., where he bought some wild land and became one of the pioneers of that county. In 1848 he returned to Connecticut and worked at his trade and in a factory.

      About 1856 he removed to Olmsted county, Minn., but returned to his native state next year. In 1863 he came to Frankfort township, Pepin county, and purchased a farm, on which he continued to live and make improvements until his death.

      He took but little interest in politics, but served the township as supervisor. Mrs. Byington died here September 20, 1876.

      Charles E., the elder son of Orrin and Rebecca M. Byington, was born at Bristol, Wis., November 5, 1839. He enlisted in 1862, in Company B, Twentieth Connecticut volunteer infantry. He served under Gen. Sherman in the campaign to Atlanta, and thence to the sea, taking part in all the principle engagements of that campaign. He was once captured by the enemy, but was exchanged after a few days. He accompanied the army on the march northward from Savannah to Bentonville, N. C., where he was killed in battle March 19, 1865.
