John S. Colgrove

DIED IN ALGIERS, LA. Sept. 24th, John S. Colegrove, of Wolcott, in the 25th year of his age. The subject of this notice enlisted in the service of his country the 14th day of December, 1861, on Co. E, 8th Vt. regiment. He was on the cars when the rebels fired into the train. He was hit by a bullet and instantly killed.
He experienced religion religion some years since, and we trust he has gained Heaven.
He was a dutiful son, and was very much attached to his home and his parents.
He was a faithful soldier, and by his obedience and untiring energy he had won the esteem of all the company.
May the grace of God sustain this afflicted family and they all at last meet in Heaven.
