BIOGRAPHY

ROCK LEMWIN volunteered from the town of Plainfield, Vermont in August. 1862, and at once joined Company C. His age at this time was 42, and though well along in years was a robust, vigorous looking and appearing man and calculated for the hardship and danger attending the life of a soldier during active warfare. He did in fact make good in the service on all occasions, and returned home with a good record. The war was not over and Comrade Lemwin still was anxious and again volunteered October 2nd, 1863, and joined Company E. 17th Vt. Vols., as a veteran. Mustered out on the 3rd day of March, 1S64, and died of disease March 7, 1864. These dates are from the Revised Roster of Vermont Volunteers.
