Reminiscences of Wilborn J. Day — Some Commentary

Wilborn Day (1844–1937) is buried with his wife, Cynthia, in Woodlawn Cemetery in Warren, Indiana (Huntington County). At least two of his daughters and both of his sons went on to become teachers, and one of them (my great-grandfather) a superintendent of schools in Grant County, Indiana.

Wilborn’s regard for his commanding officer, Col. Robert A. Cameron, can be gauged by his having named one of his sons Cameron (1889–1967).

The MS. he left behind contained no paragraphing. The paragraphing in the text posted here is my own. I have also silently corrected spelling errors and I have tried to introduce uniformity to the capitalization of words. Only on the first page have I had to supply text, because the original is fairly tattered.

Requiescat in pace, Gramma and Grampa. Lord have mercy. Christ have mercy. Lord have mercy.
