FRANCIS JANGRAW enlisted from Montpelier and his age is given as eighteen. He was a rugged, healthy boy, and equal to any emergency. He was a good forager. One day on picket an old sow with ten nice pigs came near his post, his love for baked pig got the better of him, and he gave chase, he stuck his bayonet through a pig but the squealing brought the old sow to the rescue. With his gun over his shoulder, the pig squealing on the bayonet and the enraged sow in hot pursuit, Frank made pretty fast time for a rail fence. When he came to the fence he threw gun, pig and all over the fence. The pig wiggled off the bayonet, the old sow took a piece out of the seat of his pants and he picked up his gun, looked after the retreating pigs and simply remarked, "That was a mighty close shave." He was a brave soldier; was slightly wounded at Gettysburg; came back to Montpelier and resides there now.
