Ezra Putnam Sargeant born at Chester,Vermont in 1819 and died July 17, 1883 of pneumonia.
He was reared and educated at Chester. When a young man he went to Tennessee and engaged in merchandizing; thence to Mukwanago, Wisconsin, where he opened a general store and did a successful business. In 1856 he sailed from New York on the steamer Northern Light, crossed Nicaragua, sailed to San Francisco, Sacramento, and finally to Maryville, California. He engaged profitably in mining. He returned in 1860 and located in Chicago, investing his means in real estate on South LaSalle Street, corner of 29th street, which was a dealer in school-furnishing supplies, and continued in that business, until he died.
He married Maria Williams, of Chester, Vermont, in 1850. She died in 1879. They had two children who survived their parents; Alice, the elder, is the wife of W.H. Sargent of Chicago. Carrie B., the younger lives with her sister, Mrs. Sargent.
