Botkin, Madison, is the eldest son of Alexander Botkin, a memoir of whom appears elsewhere in this volume. He was born at Alton, Illinois, September 19, 1838, and removed with his parents to Madison, when about three years of age. He attended the State University of Wisconsin, and graduated in the class of 1857. In 1862 he entered the service as first lieutenant of company A, Twenty-third Wisconsin Infantry, and was soon after promoted to captain. He was engaged in the battles before Vicksburg and the siege, resigning in the fall of 1863. From 1860 to 1862, and again in 1864 and 1865, he was deputy clerk of the supreme court, and assistant state librarian. He completed his law studies in the office of Spooner & Lamb, and was admitted to practice in 1866. Since 1868 he has been a member of the firm of Welch & Botkin. In November, 1875, he was appointed register in bankruptcy, serving in that capacity until he moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota, in May, 1882, together with his partner, to practice law there."
