Eliphalet Remington (who has been mentioned as a son of the elder Eliphalet Remington), was born in the town of Litchfield November 12, 1828. After receiving a moderate education he early became interested in the new work established by his father. In the up-building of that great industry he was an important factor, as above recounted, the growth of which is fully described in the history of the village of Ilion in earlier pages of this work. Mr. Remington was connected with the works founded by his father until 1886, and is still a resident of Ilion. In 1854 Mr. Remington was married to Miss Catherine M. Stevens; they have had three children, as follows: Philo, now a resident of Ilion; Mrs. W. J. Calder, of Harrisburg, Pa.; and Mrs. T. E. Patterson, of Philadelphia. In personal character Mr. Remington is a man of the purest principles in the broadest sense of the term. His integrity has never been questioned, while his innate kindness of heart and his broad and unostentatious charity are acknowledged by all who have the pleasure of his friendship.
