Biography

ALONZO H. SHERMAN

Son of Harmon and Lucy Humphrey Sherman, was born in Underhill, Vt., June 7, 1840. My maternal grandfather was an officer on the staff of General Scott, war of 1812. I was reared on a farm; educated in the common schools. Enlisted from Underhill, September 10, 1862, as a private in Company F, 13th Vt. Vol. Int. Was with the regiment in all of its various movements. Met the Washington Pedler with their goods seasoned with ground glass. On the march to Union Mills fell into a washout and the injury received has troubled me ever since. Mustered out July 21, 1863. Again enlisted March 13, 1865 as a private in Company G, 2nd Vt. Vol. Inf., and mustered out of the service July 15, 1865. Married Mrs. Julia M. Stevens at Underhill, March 20, 1897, and moved to St. Albans, Vt, where I now reside-
