BIOGRAPHY

GEORGE STEVENS was born and educated in Essex. In August, 1862, he was employed as a clerk in a store in Winooski and there enlisted in Company D. He was made a sergeant, and as such, served till he was discharged in May, 1863, on account of sickness. When well, he was of a remarkably cheerful disposition, always ready to hear a tale of woe and relieve the trouble, if in his power. Full of fun his hearty laugh was recognized throughout the entire regiment, strict in the discharge of duty, he was unusually respected, he had the faculty, or a genius for cooking, and was unanimously elected cook of the sergeant's tent, and served many a meal that was voted to be equal to that prepared by some women, and superior to those by many. After leaving the army, he devoted his time to farming on the old homestead in Essex for many years, moving from there to Winooski, and now is a resident of Burlington.
