Biography of Horatio P. Wilson
Franklin County, NY Biographies





Horatio P. Wilson, born in Bangor in 1824, was always a farmer except during his army service in the civil war, in which he rose to be a captain in the 142d regiment. He was struck by a fragment of shell, suffering a spinal injury which caused paralysis of the legs. For thirty years he never knew a painless hour, and only an indomitable will kept him up. For all of his crippled condition and suffering, he was remarkably active, both in business and in politics. He was superintendent of the poor for six years. He died April 22, 1894.
