May 1, 1861, he enlisted in Co. F, Vt. Vols. He was wounded and taken prisoner at the battle of Savage Station. He was married three times, first to Electa Sabin who died in 1872; second to Carrie Spaulding who died in 1902. His third wife was Mrs. Laura Sterling Prower who survives her husband, also two daughters, Mrs. Lena Knowlton of Hartford Conn., and Ms. May Straffer of New York. Rev. W. A. Reville officiated at the funeral. The bearers were Albert Tucker, R. J. McAllister, G. N. Kew and M. L. Martin. Interment was in the village cemetery.
