Almost three years at his country's call he enlisted in the service of his country, and has remained a faithful soldier until he got an honorable discharge by death. May God comfort and sustain the mourning friends, as they deeply mourn the loss of a son, a brother, and a friend. Away from home he died with only strangers near. (By Request) W.H. Hadley
