Parker, Charles E., Vergennes, was born in Vergennes, Vt., in 1839. He enlisted in the Seventh Vermont Regiment; was made adjutant and promoted to captain of Company E. He served in the Department of the Gulf under General Butler from 1862 until the latter part of 1863, when he was compelled to resign on account of ill health. He spent a year in Norwich University, and from there entered Dartmouth College, where he graduated in 1860. He was elected mayor in 1885, and is now engaged in the manufacture of the “Little Giant” road machine, and doing business under the firm name of Strong & Parker. He was married in 1866 to Agnes W. Ripley, of Rutland, Vt. He was a son of William T. and Henrietta (Miller) Parker. She was born in Wallingford, Vt., in 1806, and he was born in Cambridge, Vt., in 1803, and died in 1868. They had a family of five children born to them, two of whom died at an early age. Henrietta then married Mr. H. C. Horton. She died in 1860, leaving two children — W. H. Horton and Mrs. J. N. Norton. William T. Parker was an early merchant and milling man of this town, and has also represented the same, and held many of the town offices.
