Samuel F. Stearns
Lamoille Newsdealer: MARCH 8, 1865
In Charleston, S.C., about the middle of October, 1864, Franklin B. Stearns (sic) of Cambridge, aged 20 years.
He was a member of Co. F. 11th Vt., Heavy Artillery, and was in General Grant's campaign from the Rapidan to the James River. He was taken prisoner on the 23d of June, near the Weldon Railroad, South of Petersburg, Va., and was moved through the various prisons in the Confederacy, until his worn and famished body fell into the prisoners grave. He was an example of earnest enthusiasm to serve his country, and the tender and beloved one of his family.
