BIOGRAPHY

SARGENT R. EMERSON was from the town of Orange, Vermont, and for some reason, came to Washington County and joined the East Montpelier Company, and he counted, however, on the town of Orange. He enrolled in Company C as a recruit. His age at this date was 34. He was the only man from the town of Orange in this company, but he was all right and entirely acceptable. Was a good man and a good soldier and continued with the regiment during its term of service. Comrade Emerson entered the service again and joined Company E, 17th Vermont Regiment, and took the position of wagoner, a quite responsible place. He was mustered in on his last enlistment March 3rd, 1864, and discharged July 14, 1865, and is now residing at Barre, Vt. On page 198 will be seen a picture of Comrade Emerson taken in 1897.
