Son of Hawley A. and Fanny Martin Naramore, was born in Underhill, Vt., July 4, 1840. Educated in the common schools and Academy of his native town. Enlisted under the call for nine months' men and was elected second lieutenant of the Richmond Company, September 10, 1862, at Richmond, Vt., which became Company F, 13tb Vt. Vol. Inf., September 24, 1862. The company history has been written by others and only a few facts remain to be noted. Upon the resignation of Captain Bostwick June 3, 1863, the command of the company devolved upon me as first lieutenant. The company of lUU men increased by one recruit January 1, 1863, making 101 men, was reduced to 87 men May 31, 1863, as shown by the monthly report of that date on file at Montpelier, Vt. It is impossible to give account of the company's record because the company morning report book is not available for reference as it ought to be. Every man who was a member of the company has a right to see the book. The company's record will compare favorably with the other companies of the regiment as to age, physical ability and military discipline. When the order that assigned the brigade to the First Army Corps came, the corps was at Edward's Ferry, en route to Barnesville, Md.; this was sufficient to show that a rapid march was necessary in order to join the corps. The Company left camp in heavy marching order but the order was soon changed. Many incidents occurred on this march which indicated the individual idea of a soldier's duty to himself and country. That the march of an average 18 miles a day for seven days in the rain, would be a severe test on the men, was expected, and their ability to fight not improved, but General Stannard reported that the "Officers and men behaved like veterans." I am certain that the patriotism of the men of the company who staid on the firing line during the battle, was not tainted with commercialism. Others have written of the company's doings and the return to Vermont for muster out. Company reached Richmond on the morning of July 23, and was given a royal welcome by the citizens, and broke ranks, and went to their homes. Twenty-five members of the company entered the service in defense of their country the second time. The seven men who left the company because of physical disability never fully recovered. Several of the men were mustered out, were physically unfit for military duty. Lieutenant Naramore commanded the company during its period of history, making and well earned the rank of a captain. He married Jennie Metcalf of Underhill, Vt., November 15, 1864, and followed the railroading business most of the time in New Jersey and the South. Died at his home in Philadelphia, Pa., February 27, 190S, and was buried in Arlington Cemetery, Lansdown, Pa., leaving a family of a wife, three sons and two daughters.
