Aside from occasional furloughs, he has been there since his admission on Aug. 29, 1909. He was born, probably in Canada, of French parentage, Sept. 17, 1843.

He enlisted from St. Albans, Jan. 19, 1862, in Co. F. Seventh Vermont; re-enlisted Feb. 17, 1864; was discharged for wounds received in action on March 29, 1865, at Spanish Fort near Mobile, Ala.
He was the father of four children, three sons and one daughter. The sons died, and were buried in Keene, N. H. where he will be buried. The daughter, Mrs. Truman Smith, lives in Springfield, Mass.
