David H. Hoisington

The Vermont Journal, April 6, 1901


David Hoisington died at his home in Amsden the 22nd ult., after an illness of several weeks. He was born in Windsor, February 11, 1831. He lived on a farm until seventeen years of age, and there served an apprenticeship at blacksmithing with his uncle, the late Zenas Hastings of this place. In the early forties, he worked in the car shops at Windsor, and later for the Sharpe Rifle Co. at Hartford, Conn. Returning to Vermont about 1856, he first located again in Brownsville, but moved to Amsden about 1870, to work for the late Hon. Charles Amsden. Mr. Hoisington enlisted as a private in Co. A, 12th Vt. Vols., in the civil war, but was detailed as a blacksmith, and assigned to the care of the officers' horses. He is survived by his widow, two sons and two daughters. Funeral services were held at his late home, Sunday following his death, with burial in Brownsville.
