Soldiers Return Home to Cambria County

Transcribed from the Ebensburg Alleghanian August 8, 1861

Returned Soldiers

On Saturday, Lieut. Wm. Linton, George W. Brown, Samuel Goodwin,
Joseph Wherry, Thomas Jones, Robert Marlett and John C. Murray, all of
whom belonged to various companies of the three months' volunteers and
who were discharged and paid off at Harrisburg last week, arrived at
their homes in this place. They all look hale and hearty and give it
as their unanimous opinion that "sojering' is decidedly the thing for
these degenerate times. Their only regret is that being in General
Patterson's division they were not enabled to measure strength with the

Adjutant J. C. Noon, of the 3d regiment also arrived home on
Thursday. Since his return we are sorry to say, he has been prostrated
by an attack of sickness from which we hope he may soon recover.

We forgot to notice last week that our friend, Peter L. Linton, who
was also connected with Gen. Patterson's division, had returned. He
looks well as ever.

Welcome back, all.
