Son of Hiram Gould and Sarah Litchfield.
Amos served as a Private in the 1st Vermont Cavalry. He mustered in to Company E on March 2, 1864 and was transferred to Company A on June 21, 1865. He mustered out August 9, 1865.
After the war, Amos married Mary V Brewster, and began work at the scythe shop in Springfield, Vermont. This was probably the Frost, Ball, and Church company, which produced snathes which they patented.
The scythe company was an important business for Springfield, but it was sold and the operation moved to Bennington in 1882. After Effie died Amos and Mary turned to farming, and moved to the Weathersfield - Baltimore area. Amos continued farming for the rest of his life.
