  • Notes 
    • "He was for many years engaged in the manufacture of shoes. He is now (1915) living at Athol, MA, retired." (Nutt)

      He was a soldier in the Civil War, enlisting in Company E, 18th N.H. Vols. at the age of 17 years, and served to the end of the war, when he was honorably discharged. His regiment fought a battle at Fort Stedman, VA on 25 + 29 Mar 1865; then Petersburg, VA on 2-3 Apr 1865.

      According to the 1910 Census he was an inspector in a shoe factory. The "Lynn Directory" (1875-1880) shows him in partnership with Alvah H. Hill as a 'boot and shoe manufs. 14 State Street, House 24, Prospect'. (see page 459)." The 1916 Athol, MA street guide has him living at 119 Liberty Street.

      (Ed Note: DMC has the Bible that he carried with him during the Civil War).
