son of Thomas Worthen and Betsey N Hawes

He was educated at Thetford Academy, and graduated at Norwich (VT) university. He studied law with C. W. Clarke, Esq, of Chelsea, and was admitted to Orange County bar January 16, 1861. He was assistant United States marshal for taking the census in Orange county in i860.

In the fall of 1858, while a student with Mr. Clarke, having had something of a military training at the Norwich university, he came to Bradford once or twice a week and drilled the Bradford Guards, then a new organization. Upon the organization of the First Vermont Regiment for the war of the Rebellion he was appointed its major, being mustered into the United States service May 2. 1861, and mustered out of service in August, 1861. He was commissioned lieutenant-colonel of the Fourth Vermont Regiment the same day that he was mustered out of the First Regiment, and resigned his commission July 17, 1862, and never afterwards entered the service. He was sutler for a time. After the war he entered into company with Asa M. Dickey, of Bradford, in the practice of law, and after that partnership was dissolved he practiced for a time alone in the same town. Since then he has lived in Boston several years engaged in the patent right business, and then settled
in Michigan.
