Twenty-three years ago John Baptiste, late Co. I, 11th Vermont, and who was recently admitted to the Vermont Home from Burlington, was living in Providence, R.I., having a wife and two sons. Ephraim, the youngest, left home and lost all trace of his parents. Recently, he received a letter from Stannard post, G.A.R., of Burlington in answer to a request for any information in regard to his father published in the National Tribune and other papers, that the father was an inmate of the Vermont Soldiers' Home. On Tuesday, he went to the Home and found his father, who was unable to recognize the son. He is now in the employ of the Waltham Watch factory, has a good home, wife and two sons. He has taken his father to live with him the rest of his life.

West Randolph Herald and News, March 21, 1895.

Webmaster's note: the soldier eventually went back to the Home, died and is buried there.
