Biography

FRANCIS V. CRAIN enlisted from Moretown. his native town. He was 19 years old and 5 ft. 5 1/2 in. in height. While the company was drilling at Waitsfield Comrade Crane got hold of a large cucumber nearly ripe and ate it all down. This gave him the name of "Cucumber" which stuck to him till we came home. He participated in the hard march and the battle though well used up at the last and was mustered out with the company. He re-enlisted and was killed in the battle of the Wilderness.
