Off For Camp

Monday morning of this week a great crows gathered at the depot in Angola to say goodbye to the boys of Company B of the State Militia as they started for the annual camp at Indianapolis.  It was such an expression of community interest as would do the Company good.  Angola was creditably represented in last year's encampment, and our people confidently expect the same rank of honor this season.  Following is the list of officers and enlisted men who found it possible to leave for camp on this occasion:
Captain E. D. Kemery
First Lieutenant H. L. Rockwood
2nd Lieutenant Samuel Sheffer
Sergeant  Howard Jackson
Corporals Mack Fisher, H. E. Michael and Harry McKillen
Musician, Charles Goodwin
Names of the Privates:
Mort Barron, Phin Campbell, James Carr, J. Clark, E.L. Cory, W. Croxton, J.M. Davis, Sumner Davis, Howard Deller, Jason Ferris, Guy Hagerty, James Hall, R. Jewell, G. Kellogg, Glen Kemery, W.D. Kline, Burl Martin, Galen Melendy, Harry Newell, Herb Pugh, Melvin Reed, John Rinehart, Clyde Ritter, W. Russell, Fred Snowberger, Wesley Somerlott, Jesse tabor, C. Thomas, Guy Tingler, Lloyd Tingler,
Glenn VanAuken, Elro Wilkinson, Ed Yockey
Charles Freygang and Irvin Sowle accompanied the boys as helpers, and George Harter as cook.
