Biographical Sketch

Charles Carr Carpenter (deceased) was born in Newburg, N. Y., April 26, 1827, and died in Stockholm, Wis., September 27, 1882. His ancestors were living at Newburg when Gen. Washington made that place his headquarters. His parents, Wilkins and Millicent (Watkins) Carpenter, had three children; Phoebe Ann (Mrs. C. Wood), the subject of this sketch, and Yerdine E., who died in the service of his country during the Rebellion. While Charles was still a small boy his father died, and his mother afterward married Nathan Lockwood, by whom she also had three children: Submit (Mrs. H. Brewer), Samuel, and George, now a practicing physician at Rome, Wis. In 1846 the family removed to Jefferson county. Wis., settling first in Concord and later at Rome, where Mr. and Mrs. Lockwood died a few years since. Charles C. received a fair education for those times, and learned the trade of a weaver in a factory at Newburg. In 1855 he came to Stockholm and purchased 160 acres of wild land, and began to make improvements thereon. He was married at Concord, Wis., July 24, 1860, to Miss Martha Jane Quiner. Her parents, Henry and Charlotte (Tucker) Quiner, were old settlers in Jefferson county. Wis. Mr. Quiner was a native of Boston. His mother, then an infant, occupied a cradle in a house into which several shots were fired at the battle of Bunker Hill.

Soon after their marriage Mr. and Mrs. Carpenter took up their abode at the farm in Stockholm, where they became the parents of fourteen children, twelve of whom are still living, namely: William Augustus (deceased), Joseph Q., Lettie Jane, Nancy C, Slartha E. (deceased), Millicent Ann, Charles Carr (who now carries on the homestead farm), Emma B., Etta M., Martha J., Caroline M. and Emeline M. (twins), and Thomas Quiner and George Lockwood, also twins. Mr. Carpenter spent the remainder of his life in the improvement and cultivation of the farm, where most of the family still reside. He was a republican in politics, and served his townsmen as school clerk, supervisor and justice of the peace.[1]
