New York Obituaries - 1864 - Theodore Woolsey Twining

Search this site by Keyword / Surname:

Intelligence has been received in New Haven of the death, by yellow fever, a few weeks since, of Theodore Woolsey Twining, Acting Assistant Paymaster on the United States bark Roebuck, which was stationed at the time at Tampa Bay, Fla. Mr. Twining was born at West Point, Sept 4, 1825, and was a son of Mr. A. C. Twining, formerly a Professor in the United States Military Academy. In consequence of his father's subsequent connection with Middlebury College, Vermont, he spent his earlier years in that place. Subsequently the family removed to New Haven, and young Twining graduated Yale College in 1858. He spent two years after graduation in miscellaneous pursuits and in 1860 entered the law school at New Haven. After completing his course of study there, he was admitted to the Bar in 1862, but, instead of taking up the practice of his profession, he felt it to be his duty to enter the service of his country, and he therefore enlisted in the New York Thirty-seventh Regiment, and served with it during a part of the time of its encampment at Baltimore. Subsequently, he received the appointment of Acting Assistant Paymaster in the navy, and for nearly twelve months served on the United States ship Kensington, whence he was transferred to the bark Roebuck, on board of which he died.

While in college, and subsequently, Mr. Twining made numerous friends, and his classmates, both in Yale and the Law School, will be greatly grieved at the announcement of his death.
