RAINARD TAYLOR WORTHING- TON, Centralia, Wis., and belonging to G. A. R. Post No. 22, was born Jan. 23, 1838, in Peru, Berkshire Co., Massachusetts. He is the son of David and Mary (Cushman) Worthington, both of whom were born in the old Bay State. Both were representatives of Massachusetts families who were prominent in the early history of the State. The son was 14 years old when he be- came a resident of Centralia, whither he came
246
with his brother, Ralph Cushman Worthington. He had been previously a student in the common schools and at Hinsdale Academy in his native county, and after arrival in Wisconsin, he again attended school at Centralia. After a winter passed in study, he obtained an opportunity to learn the business of a carpenter and joiner, in which trade he was occupied until he enlisted. May 18, 1861, he enrolled in Company D, 5th Wisconsin Infantry, at Centralia, for three years. He received honorable discharge July 25, 1864, at Baltimore, Md. The regiment was in rendezvous at Camp Randall, Madison, and Mr. Worthington went to Baltimore to camp. The organization was assigned to the brigade of Gen. Rufus King of Wisconsin (see sketch) and, a few months later, was reassigned to the command of General Hancock. He was in the skirmish at Young's Point and in the charge at Lee's Mills. He was in the purvsuit of the rebels to Williamsburg, and took part in the only battle in which McClellan recognized, as did Napoleon, the services of a particular regiment. (See sketch of John Leyvkom.) Up to five in the afternoon of May 5, 1862, Hooker had been engaged with Magruder in the fort of that name and at the hour menvtioned, the rebel force came down upon the brigade of Hancock in reserve. Companies D and I were on the- skirmish line and were ordered in by the commander. The brigade made a charge and drove the rebels, which terminated the action at Williamsburg. On the skirmish line Mr. Worthington was wounded by a round musket ball. (The old fashioned cartridge of the Revolution—consisting of a round ball and three buckvshot.) This missile remained in his left thigh 25 years. In the spring of 1885 it was cut out, without benefiting him, however, as it had been there too long and his entire nervous system is permanently affected, the sciatic nerve being diseased. He was sent from the field hospital to Fortress Monroe, where he remained a week, and thence to Camden Street hospital at Baltimore, where he remained until he received his final discharge. He returned to Centralia and, soon after, went to the oil regions of Pennsylvania and engaged in. drilling wells for a time, and, returning to Grand Rapids in the spring of 1878, he went to Colorado and remained two years, returning in the spring of 1880 to Centralia, proceeding later in the same season to Fargo, Dak., and came back to Wisconsin in the following fall. He repeated the trip the following year in the same manner and then located permanently at Centralia and is pursuing his business as a builder in which he has been prominent in Grand Rapids and Centralia. He is the Commander of Post 22 and has held the positions of Officer of the Day and Senvior Vice-Commander. He was Aid on the Staff of General Lucius Fairchild, Grand Commander of the Department of Wisconsin in 1887. He has served as Under-Sheriff of Wood county one year. He was married to Mary E. White of Glen's Falls, Warren Co., New York, Dec. 14, 1868 ; they have buried a son, Henry Cushman, who died at Colorado Springs of congestion, aged ten and a half years, and was brought to Grand Rapids for interment as a patriotic citizen in the rebellion.
