BIOGRAPHY

JOHN A. GREENOUGH volunteered from the town of Colchester in September, 1862, and joined the Colchester Company on the day of its organization, September 6. He counted on the quota of Colchester, and was present at the election of company officers. His age was 20, and he was to all appearances healthy and strong and very well calculated for a soldier. His education was quite limited and yet was a bright, intelligent, well-behaved young man. He was taken sick while at Wolf Run Shoals, and was discharged February 1st, 1863. He was sorry to leave the boys and service but the life was too strenuous for his constitution. He moved to the far West and last known of him was residing in Deadwood, S. D.
