Horace C. Nash, son of Zenas Nash [and Lorenda Bartlett], grandson of Caleb and Abi [Stevens] Nash, should have more than a passing notice. The writer of this sketch was well educated, a genial man, and excelled in his penmanship. For many years he carried on the mercantile business at Nashville in Jericho. He took great interest in public affairs but never sought office himself. When the War of the Rebellion broke out, he determined to take an active part in its suppression and in 1862 enlisted in Co. G, Second Regiment of Vermont Vols. He was wounded at White Oak Swamp, Va., was transferred to the regular army and was connected with a battery. While in the service he was run over by a caisson and d. Aug. 13, 1864, from the injuries received thereby, at the hospital in Nashville, Tenn. A pension was granted to his family.
