Obituary

Ephraim Baptiste, of Waltham, Mass., was at the Soldiers Home at Bennington last week looking for John Baptiste, his father, who, he recently learned was an inmate of that institution. The father was too feeble to recognize his long lost son, but was tenderly taken to his home in Waltham to be cared for during the remainder of his life.

Twenty-three years ago John Baptiste, late Co. I, 11th Vermont, and who was recently admitted to the Vermont Soldiers 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 regards to his father, published in the National “Tribune", and other papers, that the father was an inmate at the Vermont Soldiers Home. On Tuesday, he went to the Home and found his father, who was unable to recognize his 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 for the rest of his life.
