Father: Josiah Tilton

While his father moved away to Maine, Josiah remained in Deerfield. He was a farmer by trade and was married on March 7, 1800, in Deerfield, to Sarah Dearborn.

They lived in Deerfield where they had 12 children: George, Harriet, Mary, Irene, Samuel, Albert, Sarah, Josiah, Jeremiah, Julia, Asa and Frances.

Josiah was a famer and also a tanner and a shoemaker.

During the War of 1812, Josiah enlisted as a minuteman but never went.

Josiah died on August 20, 1860 in Deerfield, New Hampshire. His widow Sarah died in 1864 in Deerfield.

The following comes from a history of the Tilton family written by Josiah's son Jeremiah:

"He was medium flesh, rather solidly built, square shouldered, straight, very erect till his last years. His eyes were gray and keen, his hair auburn brown straight, his nose yankee, that is, prominent and indicative of character. He was very active, in politics a whig, a good citizen, in church matters, he first joined the Congregational church but became dissatisfied about baptism and joined the Baptist church. He left this church on account of their introducing musical instruments and never regularly attended church thereafter - he dissented and the church excluded him."

Josiah married Sarah Dearborn on March 7, 1800 in Deerfield, Rockingham County, New Hampshire.
