Dutton Fitch

Obituary of W. C. Dutton, Seattle, Washington.

Capt. W. C. Dutton, a Confederate veteran, and for the past fifty years a leader in the leader in the temperance movement, died on December 19, at Seattle Wash, in his eightieth year.

Captain Dutton came to Seattle in 1908, continuing a work as lecturer for the Good Templars, which occupied the mature years of his life. It is probable that he led in this country in his years of continuous service, the number of States in which he labored, and the oratorical and persuasive talent that he commanded.

Born in Gloucester County, Va., August 27, 1842, he served as a Confederate soldier from 1861 to the surrender at Appomattox. In Seattle he was affiliated with Lodge No. 6, Good Templars, and John B. Gordon Camp of Confederate Veterans.

Captain Dutton married Mrs. Elizabeth Fitch, who, with her son and daughter, survives him.
