Biography

ORVIS CARPENTER enlisted at Barre. He had to gain a year in order to be eighteen, but he was equal to any emergency which did not require labor in his younger days. He had the reputation of being averse to work. He was a comical genius and everybody liked him. He had always had an easy time and his parents had indulged him in luxury and the hardships and privations of the soldier's life made him very homesick, but after a time he shook that off and was a good soldier. After the war he learned the marble cutting trade and is a good workman. He has for many years been running the marble business in Saratoga, N. Y., and is a good successful business man.
