BIOGRAPHY

FIRST LIEUT. NATHANIEL JONES, JR. was born in Northfield, and enlisted from Moretown. He was 38 years old and married. He was five feet 10% inches in height, black hair, black eyes and dark complexion. At the organization of the company he was chosen first lieutenant by nearly a unanimous vote. He had a fine military bearing and learned rapidly the duties pertaining to a soldier's life, and everything promised a future career of usefulness and distinction, but he was the first one in the company, and I think, the first one in the regiment, to succumb to disease. He died at Washington, October 30, 1862, after an illness of only a few days.
