BIOGRAPHY

GEORGE J. TRASK son of Horace, enlisted from Warren, born in that town. Both his age and that of his brother William are set at 18 years, but we are sure that they were not twins. George the younger one, was rather heavier than his brother, but was half an inch shorter. He endured army life well increasing in height, and in weight till that last march. Since the war he has in creased his stature in height and breadth so that he could scarcely be recognized as the slight boy who enlisted in Company B, in '62. For many years he was in business in Lynn, Mass., but a few years ago returned in broken health to his old home in East Warren, Vt.
