Co. C, 35th Mass. Regt., killed at battle of Antietam, Sept. 17, 1862, aged 34 years.
He early called tho' hearts were riven
And fond hopes torn away:
He had his place prepared in heaven
And might no longer stay.
In heaven we might me him-not as here
Where sin and sorrow reign:
There-where are smiles without a tear,
There shall we meet again.
