Wainwright, Locklin, Middlebury, was born in Salisbury, Addison county, Vt., on April 13, 1813. His parents were William and Annie (Baldwin) Wainwright. William Wainwright was born in Middlebury, Conn., in 1782, and came with his father, Jonathan Wainwright, to Addison county, Vt., about 1803. He settled on a place adjoining that of his father, where he spent the remainder of his days. He had a family of four sons and four daughters, of whom but two are now living — Alanson, now a resident of Brandon, Vt., and Locklin. He died on January 2, 1858. Locklin was educated in the common schools, and was brought up to farming, and remained at home until the time of his marriage, which occurred in February, 1838. His wife was Mary E. Forbes, and was a daughter of Luther Forbes, a former and well-known resident of Middlebury, Vt. Mrs. Wainwright was born in March, 1818. They settled on the place on which they now reside in the spring of 1838, and which was first settled by Thomas Chipman, and is a very fine place and consists of one hundred and twenty acres. They have had five children — Mary Jane (died in 1849) at the age of eight years); Addie E., now Mrs. H. P. Hulett; Albert A., a resident of West Randolph, Vt.; Charlie A., and Volney, who died in Wyoming Territory on July 14, 1874, at the age of twenty-three years.
