BIOGRAPHY

JOSEPH CROTO was of French extraction and at 33 years of age, enlisted in Colchester in September 1862, in Company D. Although an entirely new avocation for him, he being by trade a shoemaker, he took kindly to military life and discipline. Met the various changes of hard marches and poor feed, followed by idle camps, and fresh oysters at 10 cents a quart, solid meats, with equanimity, and made no complaint. Serving out his full time he located in South Hero, where he followed his trade for many years. Later he moved to Leadville, Colo., since which we have no record of Joe Croto.
