James S. Ryder
JAMES S. RYDER was born in Waitsfield, though for several years has resided in this town. In the draft of 1863, July, he was one of the sixteen taken from this town, and was the only one of them who joined the army at that time. He patriotically effused to pay commutation money, or desert to Canada, as too many did, but took his musket and put on his uniform the day he was examined by the surgeon, and never came home again. He was assigned to the 4th Vt., Co.H., and in the terrible Battle of the Wilderness; he was shot through the abdomen, and died in a few hours. He was 37.
