BARNEY McCARRON enlisted from Middlesex, born in Roxbury, Mass. He was only 18 years old but good size, 5 ft. 10 in. and well proportioned. I remember him as very pleasant and genial boy that all his comrades liked and one that never shirked duty. He had the distinction to be the first one in the company to have the measles. He was not much sick and did not know what ailed him till he broke out. Thus being around with the Company he had a good chance to scatter the distemper and improved it so well, that It was supposed that he gave it to some twenty or thirty of his comrades. He re-enlisted In Company D, 2nd Regiment, August 16th, 1864. Residence, Chicago, Ill.
