BIOGRAPHY

ALLADUREN STOWELL enlisted from Moretown, his native town. He was 20 years old, 5% ft. in height but rather light built. He got along very well however till attacked by measles. He had a relapse and a fever which nearly cost him his life. For days we expected any moment to hear that he had passed away, but the spark of life still lingered and at length he began to amend very slowly. He was scarcely more than a living skeleton and had numerous bed sores caused by the hard cots of the regimental hospital. After a time as he became a little stronger, Sergeant Thayer of our Company manufactured a crude reclining chair which was a great comfort to him that his position could be readily changed.

Some time early in June it became apparent that we should probably have marching orders, and it seemed necessary to send sick ones to general hospital, and it did not seem possible that Stowell could endure to be carried in an ambulance, so his comrades to the number of 8 I think volunteered to carry him to Alexandria, a distance of about 20 miles on a stretcher. This they did and he bore the journey very well, and soon began to gain more rapidly. At the end of our term of service he came home and was soon all right again and re-enlisted in Company C, 1st Vermont Cavalry, August 17th, 1864. He lived some years after the war but died a good while ago.
