A. VETERAN.--W. B. Emmons left Thursday for Washington, D.C., to be present at the re-union of the Mexican soldiers, of which notice is made elsewhere. Mr. E. carried a musket through the war with Mexico, and when the late war broke out he again went unhesitatingly forward, and for three years fought for country and home. During his entire experience in those wars he escaped without a wound.

On the 1910 U.S. Census he was listed in Hennepin County, Minnesota at the Minnesota State Soldiers Home in Minneapolis. A Minnesota death index indicates he died in Hennepin County in Minnesota on June 20, 1911. The newspaper death notice indicates he died at Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
