Biography

CORPORAL MARVIN WHEELER volunteered from the town of Royalton, and counted on the quota of that town, August 19th at the age of 43, and joined Company H and was appointed corporal and served as such until discharged with his regiment, July 21st, 1863. While comrade Wheeler was a good soldier, the life was too strenuous for one of his age, and yet he did his duty well and never faltered on the march or in battle. Returned home and resumed his place in the busy walks of life, and is a respected citizen, proud of the fact that he served his country when there was need of men to stand by the Union.
