Alonzo B Thorn, Musician, Company D
Alonzo B Thorn
Born February 9, 1844, in Coshocton county, Ohio; came with his parents to Miami county, Indiana, in 1856. Enlisted as a musi-
cian and went the entire round with the regiment, saying: "The regiment never marched five miles from the beginning to the end
that I was not with it." This tells the story of his faithful service in a few words as well as a volume could tell it. He was
married July 12, 1867, but was so unfortunate as to lose his wife by death July 13, 1890, and has remained unmarried since. He
has three sons and daughters living. The above picture was taken at Moscow, Tennessee, in 1863. Comrade Thorn is a great
friend to all his old comrades and says: "I hope to meet them all at the next reunion." Address, Amboy, Indiana.
