Biography

EUGENE LAVIOLETTE was a Frenchman and a shoemaker by trade, plying his trade in Montpelier at the time of his enlistment. He was a very jolly fellow, tasty in his dress and very particular about his personal appearance. His accoutrements were always in perfect condition, and he was conscientious in the performance of his duty as a soldier. When his term of service expired he returned to Montpelier and his cobbling. He was an industrious and good citizen. He has since died.
