BIOGRAPHY

ALBERT S. STOCKWELL volunteered from the town of Calais in August, 1862, and joined Company C. His age at this date was 30. He presented every appearance, as well equipped physically and mentally for a suitable man to engage in the arduous life of a soldier during active warfare. The medical board said he would answer and subsequent conduct in camp on the picket line and march and In battle fulfilled and made good every expectation. He was in fact equal for all that was required of him. His old comrades do not see or know much of him of late.
