A SHORT HISTORY

of the

LIFE OF SAMUEL BENTON LINTON

written by himself in 1920, at the age of 82 years

 

Samuel Benton LINTON (1838-1927)

Autobiography introduction

James “Jim” Robert Broomall

Grandson

His autobiography shown below has much detail, so this will be a brief overview to set the stage. He was born June 3, 1938 in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania to Samuel Linton (1806-1888) and Catherine Maria Hoover (1811-1888). His family moved to Washington DC about 1854, where he was subsequently employed by the United States Coast Survey. Concerned about possible bombardment during the Civil War, the family moved to Virginia. There he was effectively conscripted to serve as a draftsman drawing maps for the Confederacy.

As he describes below, in 1963 or early 1864, he had an opportunity to return north. He married Mary Salome Latch on November 26, 1864. He then found employment as a draftsman and engraver in Philadelphia. Samuel opened his own business and had a distinguished engraving career.

Perhaps his most significant engraving is the map of California and Nevada, published initially in 1869 by Warren Holt. A very impressive example is available to be viewed online in the Barry Lawrence Ruderman map collection at Stanford University library. A digital image of the 61.5 by 51 inch map is far too detailed to be shown here, but the high definition example online may be expanded to see the amazing detail.

Please refer to his autobiography for additional details of this eventful life until his death August 28, 1927.
