Another Son of 1812 Veteran
In the Hannibil news column of Jan. 24 is an item from Anson Rudd, to which I must claim he is mistaken in regard to his father and the war of 1812. My father, Amos Calkins, was born near Rutland, Vt. in 1796 and enlisted in the war of 1812 at the age of 16 years and served until mustered out at its close. As i am one of the youngest of 10 children, there are many details of the early days and following the war that I know little of. My mother was Thankful Savage and their early married life was spent in Baldwinsville, and I was born there in 1833. Later they moved to Fulton, then bought a farm, which is known as the Dickey farm and is near the Pine Woods school, also an other on Calkins Road, where the family of Dorr M. Calkins still lives. My father was in his 85th year at the time of his death and my mother was 91 years of age. My own home was on the Calkins road, on the hill above my fathers and where my family lived for 55 years. When my dear wife, who was Elizabeth Tilton, died in 1916, at the age of 82 years, I sold the home and most of the time since then has been spent in Ossining, NY, with my daughter Lois A. Orchard, occasionally going back to Fulton-but the ones I knew there are no more, and after a few weeks am glad to go back to the Ossining home, where I have a small garden and wood pile to help pass the time. As I am 90 years old in May, 1923, I can boast of being able to hold :my own" in these last named jobs, along with men much younger. The above mentioned Hannibal item has brought back many pleasant memories.
