BIOGARPHY

ARLOS W. TURNER our boy fifer, enlisted from Duxbury. He was a slender, light haired boy only 16 years old, the son of Geo. W. Turner, of Duxbury. He was one of the first to succumb to the hardships of army life. Some time in December he was taken down with what proved to be typhoid fever and was sent to Alexandria, where he died at King St. hospital, January 4th, 1863. Thus was added another to the long list of names of young lives suddenly cut short by "this cruel war."
