    • JACKMAN, Henry A. Men of Vermont: Illustrated Biographical History of Vermonters & Sons of Vermont. Ullery. Brattleboro: Transcript Publishing Company, 1894, p 219 Henry A. JACKMAN, of East Corinth [Orange County, Vermont], was born 18 February 1829 in Barre [Washington County, Vermont], son of Winthrop T. and Mary (ELKINS) JACKMAN. His mother died when he was four years old and for two years he resided with an aunt, then he was compelled to push his own way, working on a farm until he was twenty-one and obtaining such instruction as the winter terms of the district school afforded. After attaining his majority he went to Boston [Suffolk County, Massachusetts] where he remained nine years engaged in teaming. At the commencement of the Civil War [which began in April 1861] Mr. JACKMAN enlisted in the Second Massachusetts Light Battery. This battery was the first stationed at Baltimore and afterwards sent to Fortress Monroe and witnessed the naval contest between the Monitor and Merrimac. Soon after he accompanied the command to Ship Island and New Orleans in General BUTLER's expedition. He was present at the first attempt of FARRAGUT to capture Vicksburg, and afterwards participated in almost all the battles and hostile expeditions in the department of the Gulf including the successful attack upon Mobile. When his term of service expired he promptly and patriotically re-enlisted as a veteran volunteer, and with his command marched from Mobile to Montgomery and thence to Vicksburg, where he remained until honorably discharged in August 1865, after more than four years of active and continuous service, during the latter part of which he acted as quartermaster sergeant. Soon after his discharge he came to East Corinth, and in company with his brother purchased and carried on the grist mill in that place for four years. In 1876 he moved to Topsham [Orange County, Vermont] and engaged in the manufacture of bobbins and spools and to this end he has just erected a plant that promises much for the future prosperity of the community. He is an ardent Republican, a man of few words, but prompt, decided and resolute in action and with a persistence that in the end is bound to succeed in whatever he undertakes. He has always avoided rather than sought office, as the demands of his business are imperative. For several years, however, he served as selectman and represented Topsham in the House in 1876. He is a member of the Grand Army of the Republic, and for two years served as commander of Ransom Post No. 7, of East Corinth. In October 1869 at Bradford [Orange County, Vermont] Mr. [Henry A.] JACKMAN was married to Mrs. Nancy (CROWN) ROWLAND, and four children have been born to them: Alfred C., Winthrop T., Henry A. Jr., and Mary E. [1]
