Biographical Sketch of Simeon Horton

Simeon Horton, born at Milton, Mass., in 1784, came to Hinsdale about 1816, and finally located a home on road 15, where his son’s widow, Mrs. Mary A.. now resides. Here he remained till his death in 186o, aged seventysix years. He was a prominent man in town affairs, held the offices of selectman and justice of the peace several terms, and was the father and leader of the temperance cause here. Of his three sons and three daughters, one son died in infancy, and the others all settled in the town, though only one is now living, Mrs. Ivory S. Ide, residing on a place upon the banks of the Connecticut. Elbridge G. Horton, the youngest son, came with his father on to the old homestead, when about thirteen years of age, and resided thereon until his death, April 27, 1884, aged seventy-two years. He married Mary A. Darling, who survives him. Her only daughter, Ida A., resides with her. Their only other child, a son, died in infancy.
