He was the youngest of eight children of James and Lucy (Demming) Giddings. In addition to his brother, Jabez Demming Giddings, other of Giddings' brothers relocated from Pennsylvania to Texas. George Giddings and John James Giddings were successful operators of the San Antonio, Texas to Santa Fe, New Mexico Mail Line. Giddings worked teaching school part-time to finance his education as a civil engineer[1] and later was employed as a railroad engineer. He began his legal studies in Honesdale, Pennsylvania in 1850. When word reached home that Giddings' older brother, Giles, died of wounds received at the battle of San Jacinto, another brother, Jabez Demming Giddings traveled to Texas to Claim Giles' land bounty. Giddings joined his brother in Brenham, Texas in 1852 and in 1853 was admitted to the Texas bar. He was his brother's junior partner in a law practice in Brenham. Military service Giddings served as a Lieutenant Colonel in the 21st Texas Cavalry in the Confederate States Army.[2] Public service Giddings first served in the Forty-second Congress[3] after a controversial election in which he defeated William T. Clark by 135 votes.[4] Suspected voting irregularities gave the House seat to Clark initially, but Giddings successfully contested the election and took his seat in Congress. Giddings was reelected to the Forty-third Congress (May 13, 1872 - March 3, 1875) and to the Forty-fifth Congress (March 4, 1877 - March 3, 1879). Personal life In 1860, he married Malinda C Lusk, daughter of Texas soldier and politician Samuel C. Lusk.[5] The couple had five children, three of which survived to adulthood, De Witt, May Belle and Lilian.[1] Death On August 19, 1903, De Witt Clinton Giddings succumbed to heart disease and died in Brenham, Texas.[6] He is buried along with his wife in Prairie Lea, Texas.
