here, through the influence of his intimate friend Jay D.
Spaulding, he became a Republican, although his father was
a Democrat; but who afterward was a life long Republican.
In the spring of 1865, with his friend Spaulding, he
went to Ohio, and spent the summer at the oil fields. His
friend was taken sick, and returning to Syracuse, N. Y.,
bought an interest in the firm of I. A. Thurber & Co.,
bakers and confectioners. He wrote Elmer, and engaged
him as a book-keeper. He remained there nearly two
years, when Spaulding sold out, and they both went west
in search of land. They traveled on foot over a large
portion of the southern part of Iowa, and finally purchased
in the N. W. Township of Union Co., la. — now Spaulding
township — thus becoming the first settlers in that treeless

Denver Fire Clay Co.

The following condensed extract, taken from a report
made to the Adj. General of the Army, at Washington, D. C,
by Maj. Roach, when home on a three months furlough from

years or during the war.
"I joined my regiment at Scottsboro, Ala., shortly after, and in time
to accompany it on the opening of Sherman's Atlanta Campaign. Was
present with my regiment in all the marches, skirmishes and battles, which
finally resulted in the capture of Atlanta; was engaged in the action of Gris-
woldville, the siege of Savannah, and capture of Fort McAllister. After
the fall of Savannah, was ordered to Beaufort, S. C, and at Port Royal Ferry,
until the commencement of the northward march through the Carolinas;
was hotly engaged in the battle of Bentonville; was at the capture of Raleigh,
and left there May 1st, for Washington, via Richmond. Participated in
the grand review' at Washington; was ordered to Louisville, Ky., where the
regiment was mustered out July 29, 1865.
"Was recommended by my Colonel for a brevet commission of 1st
Lieutenant; was appointed October 1st, 1873, 2nd Lieut, in the 17th U. S.
Infantry, on the request of Hon. George Williams, Atty. -General in Grant's
second term, etc."

arrival of the ships on the coast of Cuba, he landed two

I04 THE EMMONS FAMILY EIGHTH GENERATION
1898, and was the first and only command to push his out-
posts and sentinels forward, and report to Gen. Lawton as
soon as he arrived on the ground. From this time on to
El Caney, he was engaged in outpost duty and reconnais-
sance. On June 30th he was under a running fire all the
afternoon, leaving their killed and wounded where they fell.
"Then came the long night march to San Juan Ridge; the
storming of the enemies stronghold; the surrender; the
waiting with death and suffering from the burning sun and
fever." After his return from Santiago, he was ordered to
join Gen. Bacon at Walker, Minn., for duty in connection
with the Leach Lake Indian campaign. On the 9th of Jan-
uary, 1899, he sailed on the transport Grant, with the 1st
Battalion of the 17th Inf., the 4th Inf., and Gen. Lawton
and staff, from New York for the Philippine Islands.
There he was in several actions, among which were
those of Santo Tomas Station, San Fernando, Paugasinjan,
P. I., and at Conception, Northern Luzon. In 1901 he was
placed on Laguna Bay, his district extending from Lumbang
to Binagonan Trail with seven stations. In July 1902, he
was relieved; ordered to move his Battalion to Manilla, and
report to his regimental commander at Vancouver Bar-
In the fall of 1903 he was commissioned as a Lieut.
