Remarks: He came to VT with parents and siblings around 1860 through Canada from Ireland. They settled in Mount Holly-Cavendish-Wallingford. JDS volunteered to substitute for a man named Gross in Troy NY for $300 and was assigned to the 143rd NY and was transferred to the 146th NY until discharged. He was a VT resident with a wife and baby (my great grandmother) in 1864 when he went in. He lived the rest of his life in VT. (Marcia Hamilton)
