Warren, Charles Carleton, of Waterbury, son of Charles W. and Julia (Perry) Warren, was born in Hartland, Feb. 11, 1843.

He was educated in the schools of the place of his nativity and at Kimball Union Academy, Meriden, N. H. In 1862, at the age of nineteen, he joined the band attached to the 1st Brigade Vt. Vols., with which he remained till they were discharged from service. After his return from the war he was for some time employed in a tannery belonging to his father, but in 1868 he leased a large establishment in Waterbury which he subsequently purchased and where he has since conducted an extensive and constantly increasing business, making a specialty of manufacturing harness leather. In 1887 Mr. Warren extended his operations by the purchase of a large farm, which he successfully devoted in great measure to dairy products. This he afterwards sold to the state as a site for the new asylum for the insane at Waterbury village. He holds strong Republican views, and in 1890 was appointed a member of the board of fish commissions that established the first fish hatchery in the state. Though hampered at first by insufficient appropriations and other obstacles, the board, owing largely to the persevering efforts of Mr. Warren, has finally met with great success.

He was united in marriage Dec. 15, 1873, to Ella F., daughter of Jerry and Florella (Broadwick) McElmore of Middlesex. Two children have been born to them: Kate Grace, and Charles Carleton, Jr.

Mr. Warren is a member of Edwin Dillingham Post, G.A.R., of Waterbury, and has also taken the obligations of the Masonic order, uniting with Vermont Lodge, No. 18, of Windsor.

Death of Charles C. Warren Prominent Business Man.

Charles Carlton Warren died a this home Friday night at 7:45 after failing health for five years, but for the past year, since the flood, he had been declining rapidly. He had been confined to his bed for the past month. The deceased was the son of Charles Walton and Julia (Perry) Warren. He was born February 11, 1843, in Hartland, where he attended school and afterwards was a student at Kimball Union Academy, Meriden, N.H. When he was 19 years of age, 1862, he determined to enlist in the army for the preservation of the Union. Being a most capable musician, he was attached as a first-class member to the band at headquarters of the 1st Vermont Brigade, Second Division, Sixth Army Corps, which he continued until honorably mustered out in 1865, when the speedy end of the rebellion was assured. He kept up music in after life, leading the Hartland and Waterbury banks; also was associated more or less in music with his son, Charles C. Warren, Jr. He participated in the stirring campaign of the Army of the Potomac for a period of two years and was frequently under fire in some of the most momentous battles. In1864 he returned to Virginia, marched into Richmond among the first federal troops to enter the rebel capital. After the war, Mr. Warren returned to his native town and became associated with his father in the tanning business. Their plant was destroyed by fire in 1868. Mr. Warren immediately leased a new tannery in Waterbury, which he conducted in partnership with Horner & Wyeth of Boston. This was destroyed by fire. Subsequently he became the owner of this property which has since been devoted to the manufacture of harness and rein leather. Mr. Warren was a member of Vermont Lodge No. 18 Free and Accepted Masons of Windsor and of Edwin Dillingham Post, Grand Army of the Republic. He was married December 15, 1873, to Ella F. McIlroy of Middlesex. Three children were born to them, one dying in infancy, and Charles C. Warren, Jr., of New York and Mrs. P. H. Craine of Mt. Vernon, N. Y. When first coming to Waterbury the family resided in a small house near the tannery building while the house which they now occupy was being built. Mr. Warren has been retired from active business for several years. A year ago Mr. and Mrs. Warren, shortly after the flood, went to Miami, Fla., for the winter and since coming back has been out frequently in his car, but since late fall has been confined to his home.

The surviving relatives are his widow and two children. Mr. and Mrs. C. C. Warren, Jr., and Mrs. P. H. Craine arrived Friday and will remain with their mother for a short time. The funeral will be held this afternoon at 2 o'clock from his late home on South Main street. This will be a Masonic service.
