Charles Jackson7 King, (Perkins, Amos? Benjamin? Benjamin? James? William1), born in Freehold, Greene Co., N.

Perkins King, was County Judge twentyfour years; a member of Assembly for two terms; and Congressman in 1830. His mother, Polly Jackson, was a daughter of Gen. Giles Jackson, who was chief of staff for General Gates and drew up the Articles of Capitulation signed by General Burgone after his defeat at the battle of Saratoga.

Mr. King was a graduate of Union College in the Class of 1846 and a Phi Beta Kappa and Delta Upsilon man. After graduating he studied law at Cortland, New York, and practiced at Ogdensburg for a term of years. Because of impaired health he abandoned his profession and entered the woolen manufacturing business with his brother, Amos King, at Watertown, N. Y. Their mill was burned in 1859, when they went to Norwich, Conn., and continued their business there in two different mills, the last of which was destroyed by flood and with it his capital swept away. For a few years he was treasurer of a manufacturing business in Barnet, Vt., and there he was again burned out. For the last twenty-five years of his business life he was engaged in a wholesale and retail grain business at Norwich, Conn., which his failing health forced him to abandon in 1897.

He was- especially prominent in his Christian life and character, as well as a great lover of the highest culture and literature. His knowledge along these lines was abundant and his acquaintance with poetry was extensive. He served several terms on the Society Committee of his church and was deacon of it, the Second Congregational Church of Norwich, Conn., from Jan. 1, 1876 to Jan. 27, 1901. His character and experience are well and fitly expressed in his own words: "With Him, who knows us through and through, faithful endeavor is more than success, or rather is success." Issue:
