CHARLES W. LISCOMB was born in Jay, N. Y., and enlisted from Moretown. His age is set at 18, but this was probably rather a high estimate. He was 5 ft. 8 in., but rather slender. However, he bore the hardships better than some older and stronger built men and was present during the march and battle though well-nigh used up by these experiences, like many others. After the close of the war he went to Boston and was stationary engineer four years, since then nothing is known of him.
