BIOGRAPHY

ABRAHAM LEZER volunteered August 29, 1862, and joined the East Montpelier Company, commanded by Captain Lewis L. Coburn. His age was 44, an able bodied, strong, vigorous man, just the kind and make up to meet every requirement of army life during an active campaign, but the camping on cold wet ground in the open and marching in mud, snow and rain soon undermined his strong constitution and was sent to the hospital where he died March 16, 1863, He was sent home by his comrades and was buried in the Catholic cemetery, Montpelier, Vermont His picture will be seen on page 214.
