Regiment(s): Co G 1st Iowa Cavalry

Wellington Kinne Eggleston was born in Canada. When he was but a child, the family moved back to the U.S. The census reports them in Illinois in 1850, then in Iowa in 1860. W.K. enlisted in the military in 1864, when he was 20, near the end of the Civil War. He was in the 1st Iowa Cavalry, Company G. He mustered out in Texas in 1866, at age 22, and was married a bit over a year later, at age 24. He moved to Colorado, near Boulder, and had 2 children. His wife died in childbirth along with the 2nd child. He went back to Iowa, remarried, and took his new wife and his son back to Colorado. They bought a homestead in Fremont county, near Oak Creek, south of Cotopaxi. They farmed with mixed results. W. K. bought some dairy cattle and ran a dairy for a number of years, driving the cattle up over the hills to Bonanza in the summers, and selling butter and milk to the miners there. He had gone back east to dental school, and became a dentist, so he also practiced dentistry in Bonanza. He later opened a dental office in Salida, and they moved there later in life.
