JOHN S. TEMPLETON enrolled from the town of Worcester, and counted on its quota, and joined the East Montpelier Company, which was when organized Company C. Young Templeton at date of enlistment was called 18, but likely was younger. Was a twin brother of Albert C. Templeton, but one had volunteered from East Montpelier and the other from Worcester. According to the common course of events
both were born in the same town, and yet it is possible one was born in Worcester and the other in East Montpelier. These towns join and the town line might have passed through the bedroom in the house where these rollicking young heroes were first brought to light. Stranger things have happened and therefore do not see
in which or in both towns these boys were born, either could well afford to claim the honor. They were well born and of fruitful parents is self evident. Both were good soldiers and reflected honor and fame on the state that gave him birth. Residence, Wahoo, Neb.
