BIOGRAPHY

DAVID C. SILLOWAY volunteered August 29, 1862, from the town of Berlin and joined Company C, mustered into United States service October 10, and started for the seat of war October 11, 1862, and was on the picket line near Bull Run battlefield early in November and remained in this part of Virginia on picket duty until June 25, 1S63. This volunteer was 35 years old at date of enlistment. His general appearance indicated a man of character and fairly well equipped for active service in time of war. He was on hand and cheer- fully answered every call for duty. He served his country well and never found fault. His courage was good and bravery sufficient for the business then on hand. He served out his term of enlistment and was mustered out with his regiment at Brattleboro, Vt., July 21, 1863, and returned home to family and friends with duty discharged and a clean, valiant record attached to his name. He quickly resumed the vocation of life and lived happy for many years. Was exceedingly proud of his soldier life. He died March 2nd, 1898 and was buried in Northfield, Vt., where his brave Colonel, Francis V. Randall and many of his old comrades are at rest waiting for the bugle call to summon the brave to everlasting peace and joy. His picture will be found on page 216.
