Some info about " My Scanlons"

Journal by Ajax

My Gr.Uncle, Michael Scanlon, son of Thomas & Bridget Scanlon,served
in the Spanish- American War just like my Gr. Uncle William Chute Jr. did! William was in the infantry, Michael was in light artillery,
battery A, Ct. Volunteer Artillery. They formed in Branford Ct. They
mustered into service on May 17,1898 at Niantic with 5 officers and 120 men. They mustered out at New Haven on October 25, 1898 with 5 officers and 157 men.
Soon after Michael returned home he started to work for the
railroad, and he spent the rest of his working days riding the
rails. He was assigned at New Britain, New York, Waterbury Ct.
and Providence, RI., where he retired. He was about 80 yrs old
when he died in 1954.
