Capt. Robert Bartlett Everett

Captain Robert Bartlett Everett was born on the 17th of May, 1824, at New London, N. H. At an early age he removed with his parents to this State, and up to the date of his enlistment resided in Watervliet engaged in agricultural pursuits.

On the 8th of October, 1862, he was mustered into the United States service as Captain of Company F, Thirtieth Regiment New York State Volunteers. The regiment was then in the field, having served out about one year and a half of its three-year term. He joined the regiment early in the fall of 1862, and was present at the battles of Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville, and several minor engagements. At the time the Thirtieth Regiment was mustered out, Captain Everett, with his company was transferred to the Seventy-sixth Regiment New York State Volunteers, in which organization he remained until the time of his death.

Captain Everett was killed on the 1st of July, 1863, at the battle of Gettysburg, while leading his command into action. He was struck in the head by a Minnie ball and killed instantly. His body was never recovered, as our troops were obliged to fall back from the spot, and there was no mark to distinguish the grave
