Biography of Charles B. Pino
Franklin County, VT Biographies





Pino, Charles B., an aged and highly respected resident of Georgia, was born April 14, 1807. His father, Lawrence Piano, was a native of Paris, France, who, as his son relates, was a schoolfellow with Bonaparte, but he ran away from his native country and came to America. He took up his residence at Plattsburgh, N. Y., but afterwards moved to Burlington, Vt., and was a soldier in the War of 1812. His son Charles B. also seems to have been in this service in the capacity of waiter to Ensign Thomas la Vague, and although a mere child he wore a uniform. The father afterwards moved to Grand Isle and thence to Swanton about 1809. From Swanton he went to Fletcher, thence to Burlington, where he lived until 1813, and then came to Milton, whence he moved in 1817 to "Sodom" in Georgia, where he built a log house in 1819. He died in 1828. In Plattsburgh Lawrence Pino married Elizabeth Sanford, and Charles B. was the only child born to them. In 1831 the latter named married Cornelia Andrews, by whom he has had six children. In 1850 Mr. Pino started in the mercantile business in Georgia, and has ever since followed that industry.
