WILLIAM H. TRASK son of Horace, enlisted from Warren. Age set at 18 years. He was 5 ft. 8 In. in height, but slim and immature and yet it was such boys as these who often showed great endurance and made the best soldiers, and comrade Trask was no exception to the rule. He came home all right. For many years he has been engaged In business in Lynn, Mass.
