Zachariah was born in 1802. He is the son of Aaron Wing and Sylvina Perry. He took his degree of M. D. at Bowdoin College, and practiced medicine in Dover, Maine. Desirous of a better education for his profession, he went for a while to Philadelphia and pursued his studies in the hospital there. Returning to Maine, he married Mrs. Mary Norton [5 Apr 1837], and settled in Mount Vernon, but late in the autumn of 1837 he went to Ohio, and before he had fully decided on a permanent location for himself, he was attacked by the malarial fever, and died near Toledo, Sept. 15, 1838. In the State Militia, he rose from the rank of second-lieutenant to that of colonel, in command of the Readfield Regiment. They had but one son, Horace Martin Wing, born Jan. 1838, died April 19, 1879. [1] He was buried at Wing Cemetery, Wayne, Maine. The gravestone reads: Zachariah P. Wing, M.D. ,Died at Chili, Ohio Sept. 15, 1838. Aet. 36 yrs.[2]

Research Notes

  • Conway Wing spells the name "Zechariah" but the gravestone says "Zachariah".
  • Mrs. Mary Norton: She was Mary Dudley, who married Jefferson Norton in 1830/1831. There is a third marriage dated 06 Oct 1844 at Mount Vernon, Maine between Mary Wing and Benjamin Wadleigh. On the 1850 US Census (Mount Vernon, Kennebec, Maine) son Horace M. Wing is listed in the household of Benjamin Wadley [Wadleigh] and Mary Wadley. Also listed on the 1850 Census in the same household are Charles Norton (age 19), Mary Norton (age 17), and Ellen Norton (age 14). These Norton children could be from Mary's first marriage. There is a Charles Norton born 12 May 1832 at Mount Vernon, son of Jefferson and Mary Norton. And a Mary Jane Norton was born 19 Apr 1833 at Mount Vernon, daughter of Jefferson and Mary Norton.
