HON. MALON W. HARRINGTON, a farmer living on the northeast quarter of section 23, township 114, range 55, Hamlin county, South Dakota, was born in Grand Isle county, Vermont, May 21, 1835. His father, Mark T. Harrington, was born in Clarenceville, Vermont, in September, 1799. He was a farmer by occupation, and in 1837 moved to Joliet, Illinois, and was engaged in farming near there until 1858. From there he moved to Geneseo, Illinois, where he died in February, 1888. He was married, June 14, 1824, to Miss Lucy Mott, a native of Vermont, born August 17, 1804, and died March 22, 1873. Her parents died when she was quite young. To this union were born eight children, four sons and four daughters, of whom our subject is the fourth.
Our subject started farming in Illinois in 1858, and was thus engaged until August 13, 1862, when he enlisted in Company E, One Hundredth Illinois Volunteer Infantry, under Captain W. W. Bartlett. He was mustered in at Joliet on the 16th of August and went from there to Louisville, Kentucky, early in September. From there he went to Braggville, Nashville, LaVerne, Stewarts Creek, Stone river and at the battle of Chickamauga, September 19, 1863, he was severely wounded and taken to the field hospital at Chattanooga. From there he was moved to Nashville, and later to Evansville, Indiana, and then to Quincy, Illinois, where he was discharged February 1 8, 1864, on account of the gunshot wound in the left arm. He then returned to his home in Joliet and herded sheep for two years and then worked as a farm laborer for two years. In 1867 he went to Viola, Lee county, Illinois, and made that his home until 1884. He then went to Hamlin county, South Dakota, and filed a homestead claim to the quarter section on which he still lives. He now has seventy acres under cultivation and has the farm well improved with a large and comfortable home and commodious and convenient outbuildings.
July 2, 1858, Mr. Harrington was united in marriage to Miss Mary E. Cole, of Geneseo, Illinois. The marriage ceremony was performed at the Methodist Episcopal parsonage at Victoria, Knox county, Illinois, by the Rev. W. J. Smith, in the presence of his family and J. G. McMakin and wife, the latter being a twin sister of the groom. Mrs. Harrington was born in Barre, Massachusetts, October 12, 1836, and to her union to Mr. Harrington have been born three children of whom we have the following record: Charles E. was born May 1, 1859, and was married to Miss Lillian Howe, of Illinois, in October, 1879. He is now living in Snoma, Black Hills, South Dakota, where he is engaged in the mercantile business. His first wife died April 2, 1883, and one child died on the 13th of the same month. In June, 1886, he was married to Miss Hattie Leisure, of Hamlin county. He has three children now living. His younger brother, William M., was born August 2, 1862, is a farmer by occupation, and December 5, 1887, was married to Miss Myrtle C. Packer, of Hamlin county. She is the daughter of I. E. and Malissa Packer, the former born in Centre county, Pennsylvania, in 1838, and the latter born in Fulton county, Ohio, in 1844, and they were married in Ohio, August 1, 1859. Mrs. Myrtle C. Harrington was born in Minnesota, April 21, 1869. They are the parents of a family of three children, two sons and one daughter. Orric C. was born July 27, 1866. He is a farmer by occupation and owns eighty-five head of stock. He was married January 26, 1898, to Miss Julia Atwater, daughter of Addison and Francis S. (Taylor) Atwater. Mr. and Mrs. Harrington also adopted a daughter, Carrie A., when sixteen months of age. She was married November 4, 1896, to E. E. Lee, of Hamlin county, and died January 1, 1898. Mrs. Harrington is a daughter of Seth Price Cole, a native of Randolph, Vermont, born November 31, 1809, and a farmer by occupation. His first wife, the mother of Mrs. Harrington, Miss Sarah Thresher, was a native of New Braintree, Massachusetts, born December 14, 1815. She died in 1855, leaving a family of seven children, of whom Mrs. Harrington is the oldest, and Mr. Cole subsequently married Mehetabel Warner, of Athol, Mass. Mrs. Harrington was one of the heroic women who was left by her soldier husband to maintain herself and two small children, with the cost of the necessaries of life at four-fold and only receiving two months' pay during his entire eighteen months of service from her husband. She did not falter or complain at her lot, however, and was only too thankful for the return of her husband, although a cripple for life.
Politically, our subject is a Republican, and in the fall of 1892 was elected on that ticket to the lower house. In that capacity he served on the printing committee and the committee on capitol grounds. He has been justice of the peace and has held a number of the township and also the school offices. Socially he affiliates with the Masonic order, and he and his wife are both members of the Eastern Star. ------------ Name: M W Harington Age: 70 Estimated birth year: 1835 Gender: Male Race or color (on document): W Birthplace: Vermont Marital status: Married Residence: South Dakota, United States Years in this state: 20 Arrival Year in South Dakota: 1885 Years in United States: 70 Arrival Year in United States: 1835 Father's birthplace: Vermont Mother's birthplace: Vermont Film number: 2281588 Digital GS number: 4245150 Image number: 3362 Sheet number: 196 Collection: South Dakota State Census, 1905
